I'm not sure how well my translator works, but it might be accurate enough.

So, bjballar41, uhh in regard to Sense and to the Market/Play question, is your Girlfriends phone rooted?

If the phone is not rooted, she might want to check for software/firmware updates. Sounds like she is still running froyo, android 2.2.

Uh, ROM version aside, there's a d/l for the play store.apk. Google it. I did that way back, b/c I was still on market 2.5 (I think)

Phone: Inspire 4g    ROM: AOSPX AR29    Kernel: TalonACE kernel for ICS
Radio: AT&T 12.39a.60.19_26.06.06.30_M & matching RIL

I don't ask for much, but a simple thanks is appreciated if you've benefited from my efforts.

But is the play store an improvement? I recently went back to a nandroid of the ROM I found most stable. I have the old market back and am loving it compared to the more recent veal they have foisted upon the unsuspecting masses. Yes, it may be a good idea to have the apk, but I won't install it unless my market stops working. My 2 cents.

Edit: Veal? Really? I typed "crap". Lol, autocorrect.

As it is stock ATT never updated the Inspire to anything past 2.3 with the older sense. It didn't even get the Sense 3.0 update HTC pushed out. This is the reason foe not having the lock screen. Unless you root it and flash a custom from it won't happen. The market maybe OS version dependet

I don't know about better. It looks like the 3.x series of Market. I will say that the 2.x Market I had had started having random times where it wouldn't connect.
