    I've googled this to death and can't seem to find a resolution. I've got CM 6.1.2 on my Droid 1 and wiped before I installed the rom but the market is not letting me download any protected apps like the Bank of America app. All my other apps have come back but I can't even search and find that app. Any ideas on how I can debug this? Thanks in advance...

    You may need to change your build.prop. Someone reported that it reported the phone as rooted to the market and that stopped forward-protected apps from installing, etc.

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    I read some threads on that, but where can I get a correct build.prop file? Or is it something I can edit manually? I honestly have no idea what's in the file or what format its in. Thanks for the response, btw!

    You can edit it manually, or you can find a precompiled (or whatever that is) one to install. I'm not up on the whole deal (since I don't buy any apps -- or at least haven't) but I know that's what someone did.

    I'm sure there's a tutorial somewhere for it. :)

    were these apps installed on the SD card instead of the phone. If so that's why they will not install. I had the problem going from 6 to 6.1. I just restored 6 and moved all apps from SD card to phone then started the process over.
    Maybe somebody else has a different solution.

    No, that sounds like a viable solution for some apps. :)

    did you also do a full 3X wipe? did the website version do anything? The only other thing that i can think of would be to clear you market cache and data under settings/applications

    I've read through the tutorial and done some more research and it appears the fingerprint in my build.prop file is correct. I'm going to get ahold of a friend's stock droid and do a file compare on their build.prop file vs. my build.prop file. I will post back with my findings.

    I was unable to get ahold of a correct build.prop file for my droid but I loaded a new ROM (non Cyan) and that ended up fixing my build.prop file and the protected apps started showing up in the Market again. I didn't realize each ROM altered the build.prop file but apparently so. I'm still learning this stuff so maybe there's something I'm missing but at least i got my apps back.

    I have been working on this all day so far.


    I have a Motorola Droid


    Here is what I have done/found out:

    I wiped my SD card, cleared Data/Cache and installed the CM 6.1.2 that I downloaded from the site (not from rom manager.)

    Once that loaded up, I pulled out the build.prop file using ADB.

    This is my "fingerprint" line:

    Code:
    ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.2.1/FRG83D/75603:user/release-keys
    I then borrowed a colleague's Droid (I am at work). He is running stock Android 2.2.1. The fingerprint lines matched exactly.

    So...I am not sure what else to do. I have tried wiping and re-flashing several times, but I can never see any protected apps in the Market. I haven't been able to get a "new" Market app to install yet, but I didn't think that would be preventing me from seeing apps at all. They don't even come up on search.

    Anyone else have the protected app issue, and found a way to fix it?

    Update: I flashed 6.1.0 stable, and all market apps are showing up fine.

    Update2: Woot! After flashing to 6.1.0, I then flashed (for about the 13th time in the last 2 days) to 6.1.2. Apps showed up in Market!!!

    I was then able to install the *new* market app described in this thread

    So, for anyone having problems: For me, I could not get this to work until I flashed the 6.1.0 ROM, and then flashed 6.1.2 over it (no wipes).

    Good luck!

    After you flashed 6.1, did you download any protected apps before you flashed to 6.2?
