This absolutely does not show up in market for me. Even from links on squareup.com.
Who is rooted prior to searching for this and had succeeded to install?
I did obtain an APK, I can't remember from where, but when I click on install button it simply states "not installed"

Where are you located, geographically speaking?

As for root vs not rooted, I am rooted and was able to install and use it, my father is not rooted and he was also able to install and use it as well.

I have confirmed it is because I'm rooted.
It does not reject all rooted phones..
I happen to be using leaked 2.2 stock rom with hydrakernel v0.5.
What rom and kernel are you using?
Thanks.

Square sent me two of the readers by accident.

Works without issue on CM Nightly 203.

Cheers,
Kermee

I got two readers as well, so I gave one to my Dad, and he installed and set up the app on his phone, and then he was told that his reader was on the way, so now he's going to have two, maybe three if they double up on him as well.

I received two readers also.
I rooted my Nexus 1 months before I knew about Square, no problems in downloading and installing app. Running CM roms.

DONATE TO ME
Default Finally got my Square reader

Although it doesn't work.

I downloaded the latest app from the Market so it gets updated and downloaded when I switch roms. I'm using CM6.1. The Program starts up and detects the reader inserted, although when I touch or swivel or look at the reader the wrong way, it vibrates... and on the main screen it says, "Please Swipe Again"

Looks like it kinda goes in and out. The headset icon in the taskbar is steady.

I haven't once gotten it to read my card. I don't know if the reader is bad or if my headset jack is flaky? This is my second N1 due to my first headphone jack freaking out and always thinking it was in headset mode (making calling difficult). This one seems fine. It switches back and forth out of headset mode.

I do have a weird problem with the headset jack in my car keeps freaking out just like this but it is a cheap cable. I just blamed it on the cable being poorly designed. Maybe I have another funky headset jack.

[UPDATE]
I think its my phone
My neighbor has a N1 and it works perfectly. I finally got mine to read if I kinda wrap my finger around it and push it forward so it gets a good connection. I also have mine tilted slightly. Once I find the right angle/grip, I can swipe it flawlessly.

I guess I'll be giving Google a call.

Today i accidentally found square in the market and it installed!
I changed nothing... Did they just release an update?
