This patch will allow you to see all apps in Android Market - not just QVGA resolution. Most of the apps will work just fine because Android downscales them automatically, it's just some developers are so lazy.

On the screenshots you can see Market search for "video":
1. Original Market -before applying patch
2. Patched Market v1
3. Patched Market v2
4. Patched Market v2 and Market Enabler (set to T-Mobile US)



What does it do?
- fakes resolution 320x480 instead of 240x320 (changed constant)
- fakes camera autofocus support (disabled reading noautofocus workaround)

Installation: Root your Tattoo, copy patched Market to the device and reboot.

Android 1.6 (stock ROM with root)
Code:
adb push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/Vending.apk
Android 2.1 (cooked ROM)
Code:
adb push Vending-Tattoo-patched.apk /system/app/com.android.vending.apk
Android 2.2 - Market for 2.2 has to be signed with the same certificate as other system components. Your chef has to cook it for you...

(Based on reports from users: You may be required to change system language to English before launching the patched Market and re-accepting ToS. I have no idea why...)

You may have to remount /system for rw access.

Code:
adb shell mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
You may consider adding this patch to cooked ROMs (just don't forget credit to moneytoo).



Update Google Goggles and Twidroid now visible! Both apps work flawlessly on Tattoo.
If you don't see these apps, delete Market data ("rm -r /data/data/com.android.vending") and reboot.

Enjoy!

Screen Capture tool that is part of the Android SDK (or the Eclipse plugin).
