    Hi people!

    I'm running the emulator using the dev phone system images of 1.6 to download paid apps from the market to use on my htc desire in sweden. Why? because the market for paid apps isn't available here. The apps in question aren't available on slideme etc either so this is my last resort.

    One problem arised: An app I downloaded works for 2.1 and desire, but when I download it from the market with the emulator with 1.6 I get an older "legacy" version of the app that isn't compatible with 2.1.

    Due to this I wonder if there is any hackie crackie crazy way of getting a 2.1 system image onto the emulator or in any other way fooling the android market app or whatever to download apps as if the emulator phone was 2.1?

    The 2.1 SDk doesn't let you make 2.1 AVDs?

    Oh sure it does, but it won't include android market that I need. The only way, that I know of, to get the Android market is to use a system image of the dev phone from HTC. This system image only goes up to 1.6 and not above this. A new devphone is probably coming, some day, but not now. Installing android market on the emulator itself should not be possible as far as I've been told.

    Ah. I knew there was a way to get the market up on the SDK, but it uses the HTC image you already mentioned so I can see where you are stuck. :(

    Yeap so I am stuck. The developer is apparently not interested in adding it to slideme either so I am screwed and stuck. I'm still wondering if there is some kind of hacked rom thing I could use to get 2.1 AND market on the emulator though.

    Anyone?
