[MOD] Fix Protected Apps not Showing on FroYo
This is just a simple build.prop mod to fix the fingerprint back to the working ERE27 one used in CM. Everything in Settings still shows FroYo, but the Market sees you as ERE27 & thus gives you your protected apps back
To install run this from the directory you unzip the file to:
adb shell rm /system/build.prop
adb push froyo.prop /system/build.prop
adb shell reboot
Then, once it reboots, go into the dialer, and type
for those of you who are too lazy to read the letters
A message should pop up into the status bar after a few seconds depending on your connection speed saying checkin succeeded.
Now you're good to go, open Market and download away
EDIT: Since I know some of you will wonder what this does, it just changes the ro.build.fingerprint & ro.build.description settings back to ERE27. This alone would normally be enough, but you're depending on luck to when you next check in. Dialing that code in the Dialer will force a checkin.
EDIT 2: Thanks to Shafty023 here is a method for the shell:
LINUX SHELL METHOD
Copy froyo.zip to /sdcard, then open a Terminal shell on your phone
mount -o remount,rw /system
mv build.prop new.build.prop
mv froyo.prop build.prop
Upon booting back up, open Dialer and type in the following code
Once you see a notification in the notification bar that says checkin succeeded you can now open Market and are done.
