Default [SOLUTION] Show hidden apps on the Market

From this Source i've found this guide:

Quote:
[Hack] Unlblocking Market Apps (Market 2.3.6) The following hack DOES NOT unlock paid apps.
The following instructions are for phones which apps don't show up in the market due to.
1) No flash or auto-focus on camera
2) Apps are protected and do not show up on unrecognized phones
3) Screen size is too small (mostly for QVGA users)

(If your missing apps due to country restrictions use market enabler)

Thanks go to Atl4ntis for the patched Vending.apk

This has been tested for android 2.2.1 and 2.3.4 on IDEOS U1850. It should work for any phone I believe, however I don't have anything else to test this on.

WARNING: I am not responsible if anything happens to your phone. Whilst the procedure should be safe, always do a backup before editing system files.

You will need a file explorer with root access, these instructions assume you are using root explorer (this could also be done through ADB)

Dowload the Market fix files.zip and extract vending.apk and android.hardware.camera.flash-autofocus.xml onto your sd-card

1. Go to manage applications, all tab.
2. Go to market, clear cache, data and force stop
3. Go to Google Services framework, clear data and force stop
4. Copy vending.apk over file in \system\app\ (make sure you mount r/w if it's not letting you copy)
5. Longpress vending.apk and change permissions to be rw-r--r-- (read + write for owner, just read for group and user)
6. Copy android.hardware.camera.flash-autofocus.xml to \System\etc\permissions\ (you don't need to copy this if it already exists in that folder)
7. If copied change permissions to be rw-r--r-- (read + write for owner, just read for group and user)
8. Edit the following build.prop lines to be the following (Some of these lines may already be correct)
Froyo:
ro.build.id=FRG83
ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion/mahimahi:2.2.1/FRG83/60505:user/release-keys
ro.build.description=passion-user 2.2.1 FRG83 60505 release-keys

Gingerbread:
ro.build.id=GRJ22
ro.build.display.id=GRJ22
ro.product.name=soju
ro.product.device=crespo
ro.build.description=soju-user 2.3.4 GRJ22 121341 release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=google/soju/crespo:2.3.4/GRJ22/121341:user/release-keys

(if you edit the build.prop on the pc then copy it back over, please don't forget to fix permissions to be rw-r--r--)

9. Reboot phone, and give it a bit of extra time to startup before opening the market.
10. Open market, agree to TOS.
11. Go to manage applications, all tab.
12. Go to market, clear cache and force stop (DO NOT CLEAR DATA)
13. Go to Google Services framework, clear data and force stop
14. Open market, and you should get an error. (This is good)
15. Restart phone again.

And tad-ah, you should be able to access pretty much anything.
Please let me know if this works or doesn't work for you, what phone you are using, what ROM and what app you can't access (if that's the problem).
The first comment on the Thread is:

Works perfectly on my chinese Flytouch 3 tab! A lot of apps were not in the market... But now, they are

Thanks! (I will test it with my HTC Wildfire tomorrow!)
For the file check on the original XDA link.

A BIG BIG thanks to the user "Smith" that saved many of Us.

I wouldn't have thought so. Firstly because vending.xml needs modding to show the Paid Apps category and secondly because it says to use Market Enabler if you're not in an authorised country, so it won't change the 310995 to something sensible.

Has anyone tried this on the ft3? I can't install Skype because it says I have incompatible hardware.

Now MS have bought Skype they will, most probably, cripple the Android version so don't expect video any time now...

Have you tried fring?

It looks like it might be the answer to your prayers and, best of all, it ain't owned by Uncle Bill and his evil empire...

It is missing from Android Market, but their website has a direct download option. I tried to download it, but it says "Your device is unsupported" and refuses the download.

I have had a look at Fring but it seems pointless as I want to be able to use a VOIP type application to a PC. Now that Skype have pulled the plug on that and you don't seem to be able to get a PC version of Skype, I have no real need for it.

Neither this solution, nor the Market Enabler app allows me to see market apps like LiveJournal, Opera Mobile, GasBuddy, SSHDroid, winamp, etc. I'm using a rather obscure Chinese tablet, the HeroTab MID 816. Oddly, I *could* see most of those apps when I was running 2.2 on it; when I upgraded the firmware to 2.3, they changed some setting, and now I can only see a subset of what I previously could.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can diagnose this further? Something (carrier? country? hardware?) is blocking access to a bunch of apps. Neither the build.prop changes, nor Enabler makes much of a difference.
