    Hello everybody, i recently changed my build.prop file to attempt the netflix work around.

    Changed the model and manufacturer to read the Samsung Nexus S. It worked great and i was able to watch netflix. However i have since reverted to my original build.prop for the Ascend, except that the market still thinks i am running Nexus S.

    I have accessed the market thru my phone, restarted, logged off the browser and all with no luck. Any Ideas?

    I would try changing the build.prop back to the way it was and use the Netflix app with the device check removed. Here's the link to the app:

    The market see your phone as Nexus S and not Huawei Ascend, once you change it back the market should recognize your phone again, example if you flash the chinese version of 2.2 the market will see your phone as c8500 and alot of 2.1 or 2.2 apps will not work...
