    I am having an issue with multiple apps not showing up in the Market when using the CM7 kang based on RevNumbers work. I first noticed this issue with the 12/19 build and am again seeing it with the latest 1/7 build.

    I am currently running a Droid 2 with the 1/7/2012 build.

    I first experienced the issue on the 12/19/2011 build.

    First app- "CyanbreadX".

    Not "Cyanbread", but specifically "CyanbreadX".

    When I searched for the app in the market it was not there. I made multiple attempts, but it was not coming up. I applied the market fix.apk and "CyanbreadX" could now be found, but it had a warning across the top of the screen stating that it was not compatible with my device. I had a backup of the app on Tibu so I installed from there and just let it go. And even if you try to get it vis theme chooser and then use the market it's a no go.

    But now, as I am on the 1/7/2012 build I decided to look for it again. Still not there. And I have not yet tried to apply the market fix.apk to this new build yet.

    But I am now finding a second app that won't come up.

    I am trying to find "QuickClock Advanced". It does not come up when I search.

    However, if I pull up Google on the phone and search for "quickclock advanced" it gives me a page to go to.

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.jpapps.quickclockadvanced&hl=en

    When I click on it, it asks me to go use "market" or "browser". If I follow the link via market, it takes me to the market page for the app, but it has the "not compatible with this device" message on the screen and I can not purchase the app.

    If I go the link via browser, I go to the "QuickClock Advanced" page and as far as I can tell, I can purchase the app.

    The QuickClock Advanced page says it is indeed compatible with the D2 device.

    Why is this happening with CyanbreadX and QuickClock Advanced? I can tell you for certain that I can go to the market and get CyanbreadX with Liquid 3.x but I am unsure about QuickClock Advanced.
    What is the CM7 build doing that causes this issue? Does the market think I have something other than a D2? And how can I check?

    It seems trivial, but I want to have access to as many apps as possible. It just seems very odd.

    You may be getting the incompatibility notice, if you have changed your LCD setting off of the standard 240. Change it back to 240, reboot and then clear the data from your Market app. Return to the Market and check for the app you wanted. Once you download or update the apps you can return the LCD to your desired setting.

    I have not changed the settings for the display density.
    Where is that at?
    I'll look to see that it is set at 240.

    The settings would be found within the extras and or build properties of apps like Rom Toolbox, Android Overclock & others alike.
