Today I'm going to show you how to run Hound from Sound Hound on almost any rooted android device without invitation.
Pre required things:
1. Rooted Android Device
2. File Explorer with root permissions.
3. Hound app - HERE
Instructions:1. First thing you need to do is download and install the .apk file for hound if you live outside USA as it is currently available only on the US play store.
2. After you have Installed the application go ahead open it,
reach the activation screen and minimize the application.
3. Now go to settings and force close the app, so that you can edit it's data.
4. Run any file explorer that has root permissions enabled (I prefer ES file explorer).
5. Go to the following directory:
6. Open the file com.hound.android.app_preferences.xml file in any text editor.
7. Make the following changes:
Replace "show_splash_screen" with "invitation_complete"
replace "false" with "true".
If you wish you can go back and recheck if the changes are still there...
Now all you have to do is run the application and it should get you right past the invitation screen to the search UI...
That's it! Enjoy the goodness of Hound outside US without any invitation.
