Configure Zinio to work with Jelly Bean


Zinio is a great app for magazine lovers. But some people have had problems with it working on their Nooks running Jelly Bean. Luckily, we've found a way to make Zinio work on your device. Just follow these steps:

1. If you already have Zinio installed, please uninstall it.

2. Download the Build Prop Editor app. You can find it in the Play Store or directly using this link: http://goo.gl/oD6rN

3. Now open Build Prop Editor and press "OK" on the welcome screen. If you get a Superuser Request pop-up, click "Allow."


4. Scroll down to "ro.product.manufacturer" and select it.

5. Where it says "Property value," delete "Barnes & Noble" and type in "asus" (without quotes), then click "Save."

6. It may ask you to reboot now. Just click "No."  

7. Find and touch ro.product.model, change it to "Nexus 7" (without quotes) and click "Save." Then reboot.


8. Once your device powers back on, download Zinio from the Play Store and it will work.
