    With the recent release of the Android Market Web Store, I have seen a few articles cropping up saying that some rooted and/or custom ROM handsets are not being recognized: Does Google's new Android Market website ignore custom ROMs? -- Engadget . Have you been able to use the Android Market Web Store successfully with your rooted Sprint HTC Hero? It seems to be working on mine.

    EDIT: It looks like it is working with Android 2.1 builds as well. I originally only thought it worked for Android 2.2 and up. That is cool.

    I read online that it might be the version of the Android Market that is on your handset. The older version was 2.2.7 and now it is 2.2.11.

    Hopefully, the GApps will be updated with the new Android Market soon. The other thing to try was to sign out of GTalk and sign back in.
