Install Internalz Pro (via Preware or WOSQI), navigate to your app's folder (inside /media/cryptofs/...), create a new file named "metadata.json" (use the app menu), and paste this into the file:
Code:
{"version":1,"devices":[101]}
Save, and run your game.

hmm isnt it metadata.json not manifest.json?

also its worth trying higher device id's and lowering down through the list till one works, for example on the pre3 i think the game Worms works perfectly well using device id 601 and looks much better than 101, a lot however will only work with 101.

Whoops, you're right. A slip of the mind.

N.O.V.A. only works with 10x IDs. I remember trying other ones, but only the Pixi ID made the resolution funny, and the rest didn't work.
