In Lith mod there's a choice you can make to include the market hack in a given rom............ what does that do exactly?

It changes the build fingerprint to ESE81 to trick the market into showing apps that may not show with FRG01B fingerprint.

Suppose if I installed it manually (not through ROM Manager) where can I find the hack at? Thanks

its probably built into the rom and not simply an option in settings. i remember just before 2.1 rolled out...i just went into the vendor.apk and changed a few things manually so the market thought i had 2.1 and i could download live wallpapers. it was very very simple...not sure if its still that easy in 2.2 though
