    For 2.2 Market issues, use this mod. (apps not showing up)

    For 2.2 Market issues, use this mod.
    For those of you having trouble seeing protected apps, I modified our fingerprint in the build.prop. What this does is spoofs the market into thinking its seeing a Droid 2 (with Froyo) It worked for me, let me know if it does for you.

    1. Put build.prop into your AndroidSDK\TOOLS folder
    2. Connect via USB.
    3. CD (Navigate) in CMD to your tools folder

    Copy and paste this

    4. adb remount

    5. adb push build.prop /system/build.prop

    6. reboot

    To test before you push the build.prop fix, search the market for Us Bank. If only 2 or 3 show up, you are not getting the full market. After this fix, you should see 10 items listed when you search for Us Bank.

    Hope this helps.





    This can also be done via Root Explorer.



    Thanks to Jcase for giving me the original idea way back when. I just basically applied his Eris Market Fix to work with our phones.

    For the Root Explorer method, just copy the build.prop to your SD Card, long press on it, copy, navigate to /system/ , paste, and over write.

    Reboot.

    I just used the root explorer meathod and now it wont boot.
    I downloaded the file.
    renamed my build.prob to build.prob/bak
    placed the new build.prob in the system folder
    rebooted and now after the M screen it just goes to a black screen with the backlight lit. Wont boot up. Im learning adb so this may be a noob question but can I access adb if the phone wont boot all the way up. That way I could change the build.prob back

    You are the first that I know of that had this problem. Unfortunatley, I am not an ADB expert but from what I know, you phone needs to be on. Another thing to try is a factory reset. I have heard people getting different issues fixed with factory reset and still keeping froyo.
