Hi all,

I got the new Galaxy I9000. The Android Market icon is not there! I tried to get the applications from the Android.com, but it didn't help...

Any idea please?

Is your phone from a middle eastern country ? I have seen some reports about those phones not having android market. Try a 3rd party app like appbrain or download your apps to a PC first and then transfer them to your mobile.

Yes..It is from the UAE. I just came to know that the android market is not yet allowed here by law!!!What a disappointment!!

They installed another software calle SliteME, but it is very slow and everytime I use it, it freezes.

I seriously don't understand what those countries have against having Google App market on a phone.

I think appbrain only works if you have android market
One more thing I think the law has nothing to do with it motorola has the market and HTC.

actually , only the UAE doesn't have the market
all other middle eastern versions got the market, and the UAE version can get the market if you told the dealer that you want a market , seems like there is a code or something that reflashes the phone and get you a market (this info is from arabian forums)

2- Set the watch to 24 hours mode

hi , i have just tryed it that way and it didnt work, my phone was purchased in saudi arabia , and i had to do it this way i.e :
*#272*HHMM#
then you choose XSG as mentioned, after this the phone will restart to factory setting, and after it reboot's, you should be able to see MARKET.
hope this works for you all

for people who can read arabic, this is the website where i got it from :-

I think the codes don't work on Foryo.
Does anybody know if the ROMS here have the market enabled?

Default a solution that works on Froyo 2.2 on a Galaxy S

*#272*[IMEI number]#

then chose "XSG". WARNING: be sure to back up your data as this will wipe the phone clean.

hi all
i have same problem. when i bought galaxy s, i expected to find android market. i feel like i have been deceived. why HTC mobiles in Saudi Arabic have android markert? i mean there is no real ban on android market. i tried the appbrain but it requires some process called "rooting" which will void the warrenty of device.

can anyone know other safe way to download android market into my galaxy s?

Best Regards,

Khuluod

Salam everyone Again!!!


I have just found it out how to download the ANDROID MARKET without wrecking a havoc whether using *#272*HHMM" or "#272*IMEInumber" Besides you are risking with losing the connection of your SIM Card or losing your personal data & files.. and God knows what else.

All you need is to download the ANDROID MARKET (it's a genuine version as they said) in your PC from this link:

Market 1.665.apk - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

then send it via bluetooth into your Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. It is a piece of cake. I tried it and it turned out to success !!!!

It is a sure-fire way to download the market without frustration. It is a free-stress way!

Best Regards,

Khuluod

No, but for phones to come with Android Market, they have to be specifically approved by Google, 'With Google', e.g. genuine Samsung Galaxy Ss intended for mainland China do NOT have Android Market, whereas my UK purchased Galaxy S does.

well i downloaded the android market from the link above, but i could not run any downloads of the apps there. And every time i try to download apps from the official website;it always pops out " there is no market account associated with this phone''. I guess u r right my phone must be approved by google.

I try to see the point of buying an android phone without android market?!!!! it is just a farce !

I am sure if i go to the supplier of my device, they won't do anything (not assuming responsibility is the best thing they can do).

sorry i was drifting away when i saw the link for the android market. The past two months i have been looking for a solution for installing the long-anticipated ANDROID MARKET!

Thanks

In mainland China, applications and games are distributed by the carriers rather than Google. Chinese Android phone are not likely to get the Market for the foreseeable future, probably on account of Google's knife-edge situation here. Also the Market would be quite limited for Chinese people, because the majority of applications are currently in English and European languages.

Presumably it's a similar situation in Saudi Arabia, as regards distribution of content.

Android itself of course has no restrictions on distribution, because it's F/OSS.

Although my UK 'With Google' phone has the Market, I'm only seeing free NOT paid content here.

You can try downloading appbrain by pc and installing it on the phone.
Go to AppBrain App Market.apk - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

if it doesnt work you can still get apps by searching them in google

for example:

angry birds .apk

Dear Mikedt

Well.. i did what many suggested, transferring the regional settings into global ones: dial #*272*HHMM*. A list pops out, choose XSG. It works very well. I got the android market as same any other android phones can have (e.g. HTC Desire HD).

By doing this, i lost the previous settings for 3G and MMS ( still we have no 4G). and i cannot do it by my self every time i tried to resort them. As SMS sent to me from STC (Saudi Telecommunications Co.)" the setting is not available for your phone. Please call customer care for information". I only rely on Wi-Fi. Anyways i must give them a call .

Thanks


Anyone who bought recently Galaxy S must update his/her firmware (from 1.2 update 1 into 2.2). Don't wait, download kies and update it. The experience is much better! Flash 10.1 can never be downloaded with 1.2 update 1.

Must-have apps: Flash 10.1 to view online videos
Yahoo Messenger Plug-in ( it has VIDEO CALLS and it is FREE unlike other android messengers)

Hey there

Did u try to transform your regional settings into international ones by changing the hours set into 24 (HH:MM) and then dial *#272*HHMM#? A list will appear to you. Choose XSG, and wait for your phone to restart.

Good Luck

Thanks,

From Toronto I am responding you

yes all your SMS and contacts will be gone ( the ones saved in your phone) but if they are saved in your sim card, they won't gone. and yes some of your pervious settings will go too (MMS OR 3G) because installing the android market will simply return your phone to Manufacturing settings ( it is like you just bought you phone).

Best Regards

Is there any way to re-install the international version of Android system for the Chinese Samsung Galaxy ACE trash?
Not only for the missing market issue, after Skype privacy breach Im very worried about security in preinstalled chinese software.

Any help would be appreciated.

possible solution (got the CSC changed on mine with it, market is still an issue though, need to solve that one still, maybe one of you can figure it out and let me know)

1. you need your phone rooted (superoneclick 1.7 works)
2. get Titanium Backup and back up all your files
3. save your contacts or use titanium backup to back them up
4. get root explorer
5. follow these steps: http://www.emoiz.com/how-to-change-restore-your-csc-on-samsung-galaxy-s-i9000


Remarks: the link allows you to add CSC's to your phone, installs them and with it hard resets your phone


EDIT: i GUESS the problem i face with still not being able to access market is that even though the CSC was changed, the PDA n PHONE files have not been adjusted to the new CSC and therefore market doesnt start...
check by dialing *#1234#
got now:
PDA: I9003ZCKA7
PHONE: I9003ZCKA7
CSC: I9000ZSJH1

do these have to be the same to make market usable? if so... where can i find fitting files and how to change them/add them to my phone?

or is it probably enough to just copy and paste the market app in the CSC app folder to have it preinstalled?

can any1 confirm that please?


EDIT: can't get market to run with this method, no matter what
suggesting to load/flash new firmware instead

speak: root the phone, back up your data, load new firmware, update firmware using Kies, root your phone again since new firmware means hard reset and restore backed up files

I firmly think it is not our responsibility that we don't have the android market. The fault stems from the providers/distributors of such a device. For me, if I could not install the android market, I would come back to the place I purchased from. I know the costumers care is really bad, but as a consumer I have every right to claim!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S doing rooting will void your warranty.

if it doesnt work you can still get apps by searching them in google

for example:

angry birds .apk


I've tried to install appbrain in my Galaxy S but when running the app the phone is getting hanged and being force close...and later got the message that it's very old version of app brain and for newer version check at android market...we have to rely on market for anything...this is Insane..

I was thinking to follow the same procedure what you have done but now am scared to do it as you have stated that network is gone. However I have Froyo 2.2 so i too have to follow the same instruction what you have mentioned for your eclair...

All you need is to download the ANDROID MARKET (it's a genuine version as they said) in your PC from this link:

Market 1.665.apk - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

then send it via bluetooth into your Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. It is a piece of cake. I tried it and it turned out to success !!!!

It is a sure-fire way to download the market without frustration. It is a free-stress way!

Best Regards,

Khuluod

Walekum Salaam Bro..

I tried to download the market app from the said link but it's not installing on my galaxy S...plzz help...

This worked like a charm.. I also tested this on my SGS 2.2 in KSA and its working..

Technically it seems like the market app is blocked according to the region the handset is being sold.

but thanks anyways..

I am in the UAE, after I do this... Will the etisalat settings be resent to me? and will they work? I kinda really need the data package!

I bought mine with Eclair 2.1 and though it had the market icon, I could not download any app because I kept getting the message that "no registered Android phone for this account". After upgrading to Foyo 2.2 via KIES Market become normal and I have since been able to download both free and bought content.

Disclaimer: My 2 cent opinion; Most of those with this issue in this post, seem to be centered around Middle East, but I am in a different region so their issue could be related to their region or the distributing Carriers and my solution may not work there

Long time woow!!!

I know that ur problem is solved now. But I want to make sure that you have read the other posts that I stated I was wrong and installing the android marketing can be done through dialing this code *#272*HHMM* (HH for the current Hour MM for the current min). Don't fear that you will lose some services because you can restore them again by calling your phone service provider. Doing this Method simply returns ur phone to the manufacture statute ( it is like your just brought your phone) you start over and import your contacts from your sim card or activate AGAIN the 3G or MMS services. The link I have provided previously didn't work well for me coz I got the android market but it did not work. Anyways don't fear of losing your services because you can always retain them back by activating again!!!

By the way I'm not bro I'm sis
Now I rarely use my galaxy s...all the times I'm using my I pad2 ( i brought it when i was in Toronto) To be honest I was surprised of my elaborate posts and how I was so informative about the problem ...now it is all gone loool I'm not as before so skilled loool. I have been studying to do some exams for a government job. And I'm still waiting for the result so plz wish me good luck (oyd3li)

Salam to everyone

First of all you're in the wrong forum...

The Galaxy Mini S5570 forum is over here ----->> Samsung Galaxy Mini (S5570) - Android Forums

That should have information specific to your phone.

I don't think Saudi Arabia has actually 'banned' the market, more of Google's decision to only have the market in certain countries. Google doesn't operate the Market here in the PRC. No phones in mainland China come with the Market. I have the Market on my phone, because I bought it in the UK.
