    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.

    That is what I. said. The fix gets around the forward-locking apps issue I experienced by disquising my rooted D1 as an unrooted Dx.

    Here is the link to the Xda dev forum post I got this from.
    NOTE: The author has updated the post, since then and changed the build.prop to read Droid 2.

    My post was mostly a "yeah, that's exactly what it does" thing.

    Do you need the stuff about the Shadow in there?

    OIC. my bad. Wasn't trying to be like "duh", just thought U missed that part. lol.

    IDK about the Shadow stuff. What does it do?

    Is there an "Understanding your Android Build.prop file for Dummies" resource somewhere? I really wanna understand all this stuff.

    Also, I changed from Cyanogen to Steel Droid 2.2
    so I don't use the above Build.prop file anymore.
    Steel Droid does not have the same Issues with Market that
    Cyanogen does.

    I did Mod my build.prop file that came with Steel Droid 2.2
    to set the stagefright values to False and the ro.build.version.release=2.2 not 2.2.2 FRG83 so Pandora would work.

    I have a programing background in basic, Pascal, C++
    So I do understand Tech stuff. I just want to know where I can go to find out more about the build.prop file and how you can and should. change the settings.

    I'm sure there is -- and maybe even by that name -- but I never personally dug into it all that much. I don't buy apps because I use the free version or go without (completely broke here) so I never had a problem losing them with updates. I would imagine, though, that changing the OS version in the file might not be the greatest idea but probably not that much of a problem. What might be an issue is changing the device because you might get device-specific apps that don't work very well on other devices. We ran into that with early CM 6 builds becuase in order for Flash to appear in the Market (FRG01B days) the build.prop was modified to show the device as a Nexus 1.

    Thanks GrommitDroid for posting the file and the link. I too wish there was a'guide for dummies' around, but oh well, I guess this dummies can keep on learning the hard way. The only way I know how. I'm starting to figure some stuff out, but not much. Plus, I don't have the technical background you do. Just my own tinkering around experience.

    Thanks again.

    Welcome.

    Experience? well in other programming languages yes, but in Linux and Android Noooo.

    I haven't even had my phone rooted for a week yet. lol!
    But I have been able to find answers to why Cyanogen 6.1.2
    (I believe that was the edition, unless 6.1.1 was updated in the last week. to 6.1.2) didn't work allow me to download some of my paid apps, or even see them. I found the fix for that.

    I also found out why Pandora didn't work on Steel Droid 2.2.2
    and fixed it.

    Lastly, I changed ROMs to Liquid Frozen Yogurt v1.95, installed my first ever theme, and found out how to use Terminal Emulator to change the font of your phone.

    Whew, it's been a busy week lol!

    & I still have so much to learn.

    Thanks to you guys, AndroidForum, Droid Life Forum, and XDa developers forum for teaching me so much already this week!
