    I have two droids and set them side by side and search the market. One droid finds all the apps and the other won't find near as many. The best my research shows is that the "footprint" shows google I'm running froyo 8.4 on 2.2. So i can't seasrch and find PROTECTED apps in the market. Anyone have a fix or know how I can get around this?

    Take a peek at the 13th post in the first link in my signature. There is a market fix that makes the market think you are on a Android 2.1 phone vs Android 2.2

    Your two phones must have some sort of difference so maybe you applied the fix to one of them.

    Can you further define "protected" apps?

    I experienced the same problem like yours. It appears the issue has gone away after using frf84b from pete, which I did not apply the market-update, or it didn't have one.

    Not all the app can be picked up automatically. I would say try different ROM will help identify the one you feel most comfortable with. I have problems with all the ROMs I've tried. But none would send me back to 2.1.
