    Be aware folks.. Rooting your Evo makes copy-protected apps "disappear" from the Market.

    I never had this problem on my rooted N1, however once I rooted Evo - it cannot see apps like NYTimes, bTunes, and basically any other app that's copy protected.

    I have read on XDA-forums that this has something to do with Market being affiliated with 'build.prop', but unclear as to what the fix for this will be, if any.

    Right now, I am thinking of going back to stock because of this.. :(

    Using unrevoked and have no problem with the apps you listed but I can't see PAPERTOSS which I downloaded on my MT3G and that's free.

    Can someone check and see if they can see PAPERTOSS in the market (not sure if it's 1 or 2 words). Maybe it was removed?

    Fortunately I was able to extract it from a Titanium Backup I saved from a while back.

    I used Toast method.. But I am going to restore my Evo back to Stock and apply Unrevoked method.

    What's the best way to restore rooted Evo to stock?
