    Hi,

    does anyone know how to identify which region your Market app is looking at ?

    I ask because there are apps that others have that i can't see (in the market). these people have phones from the same carrier, in the same country.
    Also, if i use QR codes for certain apps i get a message telling me that the nothing was found. I have tested this with an app i had before updating the ROM, which is now not available.

    thanks in advance.

    If you install MarketEnabler you can set your Market region to a bunch of predefined regions that cover pretty much the whole lot. You'll need to be using a rooted ROM though. I'm pretty sure even if you don't have a rooted phone it'll tell you what region you're in (mine just advises 'au', though unsure if we share the same Market as Europe - probably not).
