Could be that your location does not have access to paid apps. Do you see any other paid apps in the Market?
Now that you mention it. No, i dont see any paid applications in the Market.
Could it be because I am in China?
That would be the problem!
What phone are you using? If you have one that has been rooted, you can root it and install Market Enabler. That should give you access to paid apps, regardless of location.
Well, i am pretty new to android so i'll try to be as precise as possible.
I bought this HTC Dream at a local phone shop and it came packed in an Italian box of TIM which is an Italian provider.
A friend of mine also bought it, 1 week before did, and he got a Dutch one...
Seeing as i am in China and chinese dont really care much about copyrights etc. it could pretty well be they have installed their own version of the operating system. The guys at the phone shop installed the phone so i dont really know what they have done to it:
Firmware version: 1.6
Kernel version: 184.108.40.206 android@hiapk
Build nr: dream-user 1.6 DRC83 14721 ota-rel-keys
Production-team: www.HIAPK.com ver 3.121_g1_ionS
How can i see if they have rooted it for me?
Oh rad, you're an original gangster with your Dream. That guy has had the bloody hell rooted out of it.
Start here, only if you are comfortable with modifying your phone:
How to Root your G1 - GetYourDroidOn
I see. But if it is rooted already, cant i just start installing roms? Or do i have to root it again myself? Because i dont think my SD card is partitioned yet etc. etc.
Thanks btw, for your fast answers. Im doing my best to read up on everything this forum has to offer but it is a LOT of info
Yeah, you know you may already have a rooted phone which is rad.
market-enabler - Project Hosting on Google Code
Install that, and see if you can enable the paid apps.
Let us know!
Hmm, installed this app and told it to fake US T-Mobile. But still i can only see Free Apps (Top Free and Just In, all display only free apps).
** edit **
I activated Super User rights by typing "su" in the app Super Terminal. And since now the Market Enabler works! I can view paid apps in Market!
