    Does Google's new Android Market website ignore custom ROMs?

    Have any of you rooted users experienced this?

    From Engadget:

    Does Google's new Android Market website ignore custom ROMs?

    Now that the Android Market website has finally launched (and stabilized) we're beginning to see reports of rooted devices, and some running custom ROMs, not being recognized by the website. We're having the very same issue ourselves, where a pristine Desire Z running a factory installed copy of Android 2.2 Froyo is listed on the "My Device" page while an old HTC Hero hacked to run Froyo courtesy of FroydVillain ROM does not, even though it's logged in and syncing using the same Google login ID and the Android Market has been recently used from the device (as Google recommends on the "Trouble Downloading" help page). So what about you oh reader, oh rooter... what are you experiencing?

    I've encountered about 3-4 folks with the same situation that solved it by reinstalling their rom after wiping. I just did it myself with UD and after getting logged back in with the gmail info and letting the market redownload my apps, my device is now recognized by the new google.market website.
