    Rooted but can't Reinstall certain apps from Market

    Hi.

    I need some HELP!!!

    This is a long post but I wanted to be detailed to tell you what I did.

    I'm new to rooting. I have rooted my Droid 1 using the Steps outlined in the Cyanogen Mod Wiki using SBFRecovery, Flashing Froyo Stock with Root Privilages (Saphire). I backed up my apps (previously before I started this, using Astro Pro). I couldn't figure out how to restore using Astro, So I started restoring my apps by going to Android Market and installing my free and already paid for apps.

    In the middle of my quest to get my apps back, I took a detour. I installed Rom Manager and Titanium. I used Rom Manager to flash Clockwork Mod Recovery, then I used Titanium to backup the Saphire Froyo stock Rooted Rom. I next installed Cyanogen Mod using Rom Manager. However I did not wipe my settings/cache b/c I didn't want to have to start over with my accounts, apps etc. And the Cyanogen Mod FAQ said I may not have too, just try it without wiping and see.

    So I didn't wipe and everything worked great with Cyanogen until I commenced to start reinstalling apps from Android Market.
    Certain apps which I had on my phone such as Wolfram Alpha
    and Carfinder AR I can't install. I keep getting errors like "Wolfram Alpha Installation Unsuccessful" & "Car Finder AR Installation Unsuccessful"

    Why am I getting this and how do I get my apps back from Market?
    Can I use Astro to Restore my backed up apps?

    Thanks.

    That's OK, the more details the better.

    However, AFAIK, the Cyanongen Wiki and anything related to Sapphire are two different things and posted on two different pages . . . .

    Although I did snip out some of your info, you were getting your apps back via the market/automatic restore before you took the "detour" you mentioned above. And that is where you made the mistake. When your apps are being restored via the market after a fresh froyo rom install, LEAVE YOUR PHONE ALONE untill you get a "xxx apps restored" message in your notification bar. Check out some of AbsoluteZero's posts over at the CM forums and he is in agreement.

    I suggest you do a factory data reset and then leave your phone alone after you sign back into your google account until you get the message above, then and only then go ahead with other app installs and restores.

    good luck

    Thank you will try. I didn't know your phone would automatically restore your apps. Cool. So I have to use Saphire (which I did get from Droid Life (they had a video, better instructions on how to root), or Cyanogen Mod to get my apps restored?

    Can you please post links to the exact guides you are referring to so I can figure out what they are telling you to do, please? This will make it much easier for me to figure out what you are trying to do and how you did it.

    The last time I looked at the cyanogenmod rooting wiki, it was out of date and only for the A855 running 2.1.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your willingness to help. I solved my problem of not being able to see or download apps from Market (ones that I previously paid for) by searching on her and the other forums and found the answer. My build.prop file showed that I was root and Market doesn't show forward-locked apps to Rooted devices. Market wouldn't let you download them if you did see them either.

    So I got a build.prop file from Beesley (sp) to trick Market into thinking my phone is an unrooted Droid X. And Voila, I get to redownload the apps I paid for previously.

    BTW, Astro Pro file manager may back up your forwarrd-locked apps, but it won't restore them on a Your device if it is rooted!

    Yet another reason Titanium Backup Pro much better!

    Thanks again for your willingness to help. I'm sure I'll be posting here again with a need for help.

    That's interesting news. A copyright protection measure, most likely. I wonder if the dev community is aware of this as a whole.

    Gromit, could you please post that build.prop file so I can take a look at it? You might have to change the extension to something else and/or zip it. Either that oir the link to where you found it?

    Thank you very much. And glad you got it fixed.
