I logged in and downloaded an app just fine, I really like the online market
Yeah I successfully installed one...to a phone that has been deactivated (and has a bad ESN to boot) since October 5th. Something isn't adding up here. I have two phones listed as devices on there, neither of which is the phone that I actually have setting in front of me.
I'm going to do the whole Google account delete from Accounts & Sync, re-sync and say back later if that worked.
Yep. When I log in, I can see the Nook and my phone. Both are rooted. The Nook is running stock rooted and the phone is running a custom rom. That's the only real difference between the two. When I go to install an app, it simply asks me which device to install it to. It says it hasn't talked to my phone since 1/17 though. I have logged into the market on my phone, bought (free) stuff and rebooted my phone. None of it works. Market on my phone has no issues, but I can't push to it from the web. I'm guessing it has to do with my ROM.
I also had the initial invalid request message at the very outset. Tried it about 1/2 hour later and I was able to login. Picked some silly Amex app just to see if it worked and it did. Turned on the phone 2 seconds later and there it was, installing the app. Very cool website, something we really needed. I'm rooted on CM7 #23 Invisiblek's beta kernel, if anyone cares.
Cleared the market cache and reset it on my phone. Made no difference. Still can't push apps.
^Same here - and I'm too work-busy to backup/reset/restore at the moment.
Although you run a custom rom - I had a leaked Froyo then patched it (all rooted). There was some HTC phone-home stuff I didn't like, so I deleted it. So - our roms may be similar in that we're missing some file like that. My Market list is stale since 8/10 - and that would've been about the time I deleted those files.
It's likely I have backups of everything. If I find the missing culprit, I'll shoot you a PM so you can check your /system for it.
The ROM I'm using now is buggy. I'm gonna update it to the new version. Been planning to do it anyway, but I've just been too lazy. It's bitterly cold out and everyone but us is closed for the weather. I may update the ROM today and see if that's the problem. Might save other people some issues.
Running a rooted DInc with stock ROM (bloatware removed) and an updated kernel, I was able to login and install an app with no problem. The market does still show my old phone though, so I set that one to 'hide in menus' so I wouldn't see it.
OK, I've checked at Google.
Rooted and non-rooted users alike are reporting this issue.
I did the same hide-thing for my wife's old phone - she's running just fine with all this.
Mine shows 2 also, the one I have now and a previous one I no longer have. As long as I pick the right phone the app installs just fine
Why is there a price difference between Appbrain and Market? There was a $2 price difference on one book.
Also, does Market have a list where you can store what you are interested in until you buy or install it?
My uneducated guess is that the market is looking under rom version and seeing all sorts of things it doesn't recognize. Mine's Liberty v 1.5. I'd like to see us get that under control and fix it to see if it works. I forget what it's supposed to say.
Having the same issue. Rooted DX, running stock with bloatware removed, though I have tried a custom ROM in the past. I'm wondering if it is worth the trouble of SBFing back to stock, upgrading, seeing if android market push works, and then methodically removing bloatware and customizing to see if the market still works. Meanwhile, chrome to PC works but has a lag as mentioned above.
Alright, you guys won't like this, but I did a data erase and restore and it fixed the issue....on stock. I'll root now, then try another download, then customize some more, then try another download and report back. Bah humbug but at least it's working.
Those are survivable with backups. Glad you nailed it!
I somehow partly fixed it. The Market now says that my phone checked in with it today. Pushing apps does not work though. Oh well. I didn't have this functionality before and never missed it. And it does work on the Nook so it's kind of a wash I guess.
Okay, I'm rooted, removed bloatware and customized to my liking. Market is pushing apps OTA. It was a hassle, but I'm good to go. Was it worth it? Probably not but I hate the idea of functionality not working as it should for my DX.
Tried to install an app and it said that 'this item is not available on your carrier' when I tried to select my phone in the app install pop-up screen. The very same app installed fine the usual way. Rooted with custom rom. Maybe that's why it doesn't work with my 'carrier'
Hmm... tried another app and this one worked fine. I guess there are still some teething problems
Mine shows only about 1/4 of my apps (market on phone now isn't showing everything either!). My phone is showing the right info in settings etc., it's just not pulling everything. (stock Moto Droid)
When I access the site through Chrome I get the "this is not the page you want" message and have to click to go there anyway. Big red line through https. FF just takes me there. You'd almost think Google would let me in! Hello!
So far I'm not impressed, and I haven't even tried to install anything yet!
I have been using the site on my Cr-48 laptop (Chrome OS, no other browser on it) without any problems

Does not work if your phone is registered to your ISP's Google Apps email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If I register my phone to my gmail email account, web market will work. But will I lose all paid apps if I do this.
Google must of changed something because now I can see my device without the solution but it still wont download apps, you just get a message saying "you have not opened the android market recently on this device. Please open it and try again" when you select your device and the install button is grey out on the pop up menu. I used the market today, before and after trying it, so god know what they are talking about. Maybe google shouldn't let their programmers leave the building until they get it sorted.
I get the same error (you have not opened the android market recently on this device. Please open it and try again). It recognizes what apps I've already installed, but won't let me download anything from the web due to this error. I opened market on my phone and downloaded a random app, but this didn't help. I still get the same error from the webstore.
