    Must've been the custom ROM. When you say you weren't able to download them, do you mean a.) they didn't show up in the market, b.) they wouldn't download/install, or c.) they installed but wouldn't work correctly?

    They just wouldn't show up in the market. And when i tried to download them from the android market from the pc to my Droid X I would get an error saying it wasn't compatible with my phone. I think you're right. It is probably because of the rom.

    That is becase google decided try and force people to upgrade and change device compatibility for a lot fo apps. I was quite updset until I found a work around in this thread.

    May only be out $200 on the bricked one, but then go ahead and count in $500-$700 for the replacement. Now thats a REALLY expensive brick.

    Also, you can't use Google Movies from a rooted phone, for obvious piracy reasons, if you care...

    Please explain how this works.
    Or post a link.
    It looks like a really great toolkit!
