    I purchased ROM Manager from the market for $4.99, the premium version shows up in the app drawer, but it opens as an unpaid version. I've written to the author via Google and have received no response. What recourse do I have??

    I've had it happen once or twice before I started using Titanium Backup, but an uninstall/reinstall fixed it for me.

    I can't reinstall the paid version - without paying again! :rolleyes: I always pay for the software, but it looks as though this time I got burned :mad:

    How? I've got the free one, but to get the paid Premium I'm brought to the pay screen.

    If you paid for the premium version, it should forever be linked to your google account. No matter if you data wipe, after you've signed into your google account, the paid version should be there

    If you bought it on the MArket you can ALWAYS reinstall it from the Downloads section. If from the dev you must have a code that will activate it.

    There is no code. In the Market it says I've purchased it (it's in AppBrain that I'm brought to the purchase screen, I've just discovered, so now I'm just using the market), and there's a button to 'install' it, but nothing happens - both versions are listed in my apps on my phone, but the Premium version doesn't activate. I'm always prompted within ROM Manager to upgrade to the Premium version.

    Ok, this seems to have been an AppBrain problem. In the Market I was able to reinstall the Premium key (there are still two icons in my app drawer, but that seems to be the way the program handles the Premium key). All is well now.

    It should disappear after a few reboots, did for me at least. If you're using launcher pro you can just hide the premium key

    For me when I clicked on the key, it told me that it was just the premium key and after that it no longer shows in the app list. Just the main rom manager app.

    I think it was an AppBrain issue, because when I went to the Market, the Premium version was available to install, (remember, it was already on my phone), I installed it, and now it's running properly - although both icons are still in my app drawer. I don't care, as long as it knows I paid for it! ;)
