    No. Unfortunately that won't help. That is for enabling paid apps on market
    I don't have market so I can't enable paid apps on it and 2. I don't have root access
    On phone so can't use that app anyway

    Well if the market is entirely missing, why not try copying the method for enabling youtube and copy the market from a dream rom?

    Hi, all...i from malaysian too...I plan to buy the htc tattoo soon...but i reli lack of the knowledge about smart phone because i never use a smart phone before..Therefore, i got some questions need to ask:

    1) what is the real function of android market?? For now, i just know that android market is use for dwnload the applications for android platform...

    2) If the android market is use for dwnload the applications, what is the difference that we use SLideMe website to dwnload the applications?

    3) izit good to buy the htc tattoo in sengheng shop?

    thanks~

    hi

    yes the function of market is to download apps for phone

    the difference is slideme is a third party app and doesnt work nearly as well as market, also it only has a quarter of the amount of apps available

    and sorry dont know the answer to question 3

    Thanks RellikZephyr for your information~

    By the way, now you edi solve for ur problem? You know how to change rom from malaysian to global ?? Is it you use the tattoo phone in malaysia?

    N one more question, i can search android market website by using computer; http://www.android.com/market/

    we can not direct dwnload the applications by computer and install it on tattoo?? we need to direct connect by phone to get the applications?

    In addition to SlideME, you may also want to check out AndAppStore.com (we have a couple apps at both sites, more to follow soon).

    But, best of luck getting Android Market running!

    Cheers,
    Steve

    I also have the Malaysian Tattoo and want to gain access to Android Market. I've followed the instructions listed above, going through 1-19 and then for step 20, I used the above linked ROM, but to no avail. I always receive a User Error 131 that it cannot update the phone. Any suggestions?

    This is my first time working with Android ROMs on a phone that isn't my OpenMoko FreeRunner, which handles operating system installs totally differently, so please, bear with me. Thanks.

    Don't use the ROM that's on the Create A Goldcard page, as that ROM is for the Hero. Use this ROM updater instead of that one:
    RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
    Just run this on your PC while the goldcard you made is in the phone, and it should update just fine.

    I nearly certain that that's the ROM that I used as I know that I didn't use the one from the GoldCard page. I'm downloading the one you linked now and will give it a go.

    When I insert the Gold Card into my tattoo, it says that it is preparing the card and then reports that it's damaged. Is that normal due to the hex edit?

    Thanks again.

    No, it shouldn't say the card is damaged.

    That's probably the problem then. When the instructions say to format the SD card as FAT32, should I do that in the phone or on my PC? I wouldn't think it makes a difference.

    I used my phone, though like you said, it shouldn't matter.

    Awesome. At least now I know where the problem step is. I'll try some different SD cards later today and will report my status.

    Thanks for your assistance.
