Did you by chance do a titanium backup?
I've read through the tutorial and done some more research and it appears the fingerprint in my build.prop file is correct. I'm going to get ahold of a friend's stock droid and do a file compare on their build.prop file vs. my build.prop file. I will post back with my findings.
I was unable to get ahold of a correct build.prop file for my droid but I loaded a new ROM (non Cyan) and that ended up fixing my build.prop file and the protected apps started showing up in the Market again. I didn't realize each ROM altered the build.prop file but apparently so. I'm still learning this stuff so maybe there's something I'm missing but at least i got my apps back.
I have been working on this all day so far.
I have a Motorola Droid
Here is what I have done/found out:
I wiped my SD card, cleared Data/Cache and installed the CM 6.1.2 that I downloaded from the site (not from rom manager.)
Once that loaded up, I pulled out the build.prop file using ADB.
This is my "fingerprint" line:
I then borrowed a colleague's Droid (I am at work). He is running stock Android 2.2.1. The fingerprint lines matched exactly.Code:ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2.1/FRG83D/75603:user/release-keys
So...I am not sure what else to do. I have tried wiping and re-flashing several times, but I can never see any protected apps in the Market. I haven't been able to get a "new" Market app to install yet, but I didn't think that would be preventing me from seeing apps at all. They don't even come up on search.
Anyone else have the protected app issue, and found a way to fix it?
Update: I flashed 6.1.0 stable, and all market apps are showing up fine.
Update2: Woot! After flashing to 6.1.0, I then flashed (for about the 13th time in the last 2 days) to 6.1.2. Apps showed up in Market!!!
I was then able to install the *new* market app described in this thread
So, for anyone having problems: For me, I could not get this to work until I flashed the 6.1.0 ROM, and then flashed 6.1.2 over it (no wipes).
