Default [How To] Fix Your Device Is Not Compatible With This Item In Android App Market

So, you got the skyrocket right...? I got the white one and some of the programs are not compatible in the market?

Well there are two methods that are a guaranteed fix on most people's phone but there is another 3rd method.

Method 1. Go to your Menu button > Settings > Applications > Manage applications > Press All > and then scroll down to Market. Press clear cache first and then clear data second. If you clear data it will clear cache but the first way is my method. Reopen the market.

Method 2. Try LCD Density and set it back to the regular density if you have custom rom.

Method 3. A Godsend which is marketEnabler in the market. Download it and fake your provider as Verizon and reopen the market. I've provided more in-depth instructions below...

You should just tell people to not.mess with the densiy because that always causes this problem. Not just on the skyrocket.

Does any one know where there is a list of screen densities.
Might be nice to get a repository or a simple how to find the default for your device.
I am woefully running CM7 on a Wildfire, woeful only because my HTC One X was knicked and it's all I can afford at the mo...
But I can't figure out what resolution Groupon needs to install..

There must be either an easy way to figure this out, or if this continues to be a problem, a way to get developers to publish what they want / need on the Market Place - oh yeah Google Play, or is that now not Market / No Play / Or Use / Or Not Use / Not Play..........
