    I'm getting a lot of this "incompatibility" error in the Android Market since I upgraded to SS 5.4. I can't see any specific issue that would cause this - but I can tell you that on my phone's side, apps that I used to have installed now don't show up, and if I go to the Market through my web browser, I get the above error message, and I cannot install the app. Groupon is one example of an app that I used to have installed, and which worked properly, that I'm now told is incompatible (and the Market via the web browser claims I already have it installed, while it tells me that it's also incompatilbe). Is it really a matter of it is technically incompatible, and I will have to hunt for an APK to install it myself, or is it possible that something else is wrong?

    Tried searching the forums, but I didn't see anything specifically related to this issue, apologies if I missed it.

    All signs point to just needing a new phone. I never did get the GPS problem fixed, and I just need to hold out another month for my upgrade from Verizon. Problem is, I don't want any of the LTE phones they have. :-/

    Did you flash the patch in Chevy tools?

    Yes, I did. Sorry, should have mentioned that. Also ran fix permissions, cleared Market data/cache, most easy fixes short of a wipe/reinstall.

    Did you delete your "android_secure" folder from your sdcard? That fix was posted in the OP for SS 5.4.

    Yeah that's odd. Did flash 5.4 over 5.3, or something else?

    I know people were having problems with the android market, but I think that was theme related. I suppose you could uninstall the market and reinstall the apk.

    Other than that, I think a full wipe is in order.

    Full wipe is not needed though. Delete the android_secure folder and you're good.

    spc_hicks09 I'm having the same issue as the OP, specifically after I saw this thread I checked to see if Groupon was available and it wasn't. I've tried everything the OP has, as well as your suggestion to delete the android_secure folder from my SD Card to no avail. I am still unable to download this particular app from the market, when I did not have this problem on any other ROM.

    Try it using these steps:

    Reboot to recovery
    Mount USB
    Plug in to PC
    Delete android_secure folder
    Unmount USB
    Wipe Dalvik cache
    Wipe Cache Partition

    Reboot, I'm not promising this will work but it should. If that doesn't work then I have no idea what's wrong.

    I just did that, and it didn't fix the issue, and now several apps that I used to have installed (Google Reader, Facebook, etc.) are now no longer installed and are "not compatible with your device" when I go to the Market. This sucks. Probably end up wiping/reinstalling.

    EDIT: This is, of course, because it's where Apps2SD stores programs, which I just learned. Problem is, somehow I lost my backups with Titanium backup, so I can't reinstall them from that either. No time like the present to wipe/reinstall, I suppose.

    Virus?

    I'd go ahead and wipe everything multiple times and start new.

    If you go to the Market website and find an app that's not compatable, click on this notice and it will tell you that it's a problem with your permissions.

    On your Droid's Market go to settings and change to all or mature.

    /facepalm

    That was it. It was set at "all", but once I switched it to "Mature" everything is available again.

    I understand that, maybe this article will help you out a little more about why that's most likely the issue. However I do appologize for not telling you to move any apps that you have installed on your sdcard to your internal storage before doing this. I'm sorry for any issues that may have caused. Another reason why I am saying this is because the Market does download apps and Market updates through the sdcard. You can try to pinpoint the problem but unmounting your sdcard or taking it out of the phone, then trying to install the app again.

    That's an interesting and helpful article - thanks for posting the link.

    Sorry if I seemed frustrated at you, I didn't mean it to come across that way. You were actually helpful - am just getting frustrated at this phone, as it seems to be having more and more issues lately - combine that with the fact that I'm so close to a new phone that I can almost taste it and, well, you get the picture. ;)
