If you have updated/downloaded Pandora recently and have looked at the comments section, you might have noticed a lot of people complaining about the new permissions change where Pandora asks for access to your contacts list. Pandora says they only use it if you let them. However, most people don't believe this. Regardless of if/when they use it, odds are you dont want your grandmother getting emails telling her what radio stations you are listening to. Here is how you can get around Pandora getting access to your contact data and still listen to your free/paid Pandora radio stations on your Android device. NOTE: Steps 1 and 2 below are not needed of you have the 2.2 OTA update. 1. Root your device 2. Install a 2.2 based ROM 3. Uninstall the Pandora app on your device (if installed) 4. Install Flash 10.1 ( from Market or here ) 5. Open the stock browser and in the address block type "about:debug" (nothing will happen). Do not close the browser! 6. Hit the menu button then go to "More" and then "Settings" 7. Scroll all the way to the bottom and tap on "UAString" 8. Choose "Desktop" 9. Hit the "Back" button to get back to the browser. 10. Go to Pandora.com and sign in. 11. Enjoy! The only problem that I have found is that if you navigate away from that browser window or turn the screen off, then Pandora stops playing.
