*we love wine, not whine*

* Supported roms :
- Sense roms (Wildpuzzle / Leaf / SunaAbh / DK etc..)
- Aosp roms (OpenFire / GingerFire)
- CyanogenMod roms (CM 6.1.0 / CM 7 )
- Theoretically every 2.2 & 2.3 roms for Wildfire

/!\ Quick Info /!\
G-apps MDPI (tiny or not) REQUIRED on CM6.1 / CM 7
- Depending on countries (and possibly fingerprints) you might get different results !
- If you can't download, blame google and their servers !
- If you feel like doing a Nandroid backup, do it !


What it does :
- shows non-Qvga (up to 800*480=WVGA) apps in market (ex. Rom-Manager)
- show protected apps (ex. Paypal(?) / Dr. droid )
What it does NOT :
- doesn't show paid apps in countries which... don't show them, use Market Enabler for that.


Requirements :
- A custom rom (or at least a rooted phone with custom recovery)
- Cyanogen only : Pre-installed G-apps

Install instructions :
- Download
- Put in on your SD-card root
- Reboot under Recovery
- Flash as usual (select a zip from sdcard => naviguate to .zip => select "yes" and wait it's done)
- Reboot under your rom, tap on the market icon
- Accept ToS (if not, see the FAQ, Q°4) and enjoy


1 - An app not showing ? Check on if the requested app isn't missing from the market ! (ex : ScummVM)

2 - Can't download from the market ? The patching method I used is a known process and it's 99.9% impossible that it causes problems. If downloading apps fails, it's a google-sided problem.

3 - Don't know what it does ? Look at screenshots, XXX results for a "video" search Search for "video" to see the difference (or compare before and after patching) !

4 - After flashing the market, you still can't see more apps ? You'll need to go to "Settings", from there go to Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> find the Market app ==> Purge its datas & caches : Accept ToS again.

5 - Can't reboot / bootloops right after flashing this patch ?!??! Well, I'm not going to open an Aftersales service, but first : You did something wrong !
=> This patch only do things related to Vending.apk (market app) & its cache, nothing more ! Therefore, having a PHONE issue (like not rebooting / needing to flash a previous nandroid backup) ISN'T MY RESPONSABILITY NOR THIS PATCH'S FAULT. This being stated, I still can point out some of those WRONG BEHAVIOR and what it does :
*removing Vending.apk from G-apps* => perfectly stupid !
*not installing G-apps before flashing* => YOU NEED THEM !
*flashing this patch to a stock rom* => I never tried, but if it works, it's kewl.

6 - New v2.2.x gives you FCs ? Use the to purge the market :
1- Put the file on your SDcard
2- Flash it under Clockwork Recovery
3- Reboot, let your rom boot (WITHOUT directly flashing a patched market)
4- once your rom booted, check market disapeared and can't be launched by any leftover shortcut.
5- Reboot under recovery and flash as normal

*another wierd problem not listed below?* => No, this isn't stupid to ask if you did everything GOOD, if no matter what you still have ****s, just post a Logcat and/or the maximum infos about what's going wrong.


Changelog :
- V7.2.1 : Skoobly-Oobly-Doobob - normaly properly functional (we're better off not using gingerbread's G-apps Vending.apk)
- V7.1 :
- v2.2.11 / still the same / gingerbread's apk used
- RM Premium is normally back
- Forgot to purge caches in updater-script
- Nice / With uber-leet comment updater-script remake for Market&Permissions&Remover package.
- removed v5.2 / oldest "changelogs", if needed PM me, i'll post it back

- v7 : v2.2.11 / similar as before / Separated permissions fix (only needed on CM6.1) UpdateR-script back
- v6.1 : v2.2.7 / similar as before / Separated permissions fix (only needed on CM6.1) / Now stable / New Package :, see FAQ n°6
- v6 : v2.2.6 / shows apps up to 800*480 / Added some /etc/permissions missing in CyanogenMod releases.

*everyone's amazed by Gingerbread... GINGER? FFS!?*

CM6.1 & CM7 users need to flash an additional file :
CM6.1.0 / FROYO => (simple permissions fix)
CM7 / GINGERBREAD => You might need to fake your fingerprint to latest Nexus S fingerprint :
- Edit and flash your Build.prop according to this :
[/code] 2.3.1 GRH78 85442 release-keys
Only for CyanogenMod

I got stuck in a bootloop after flashing.
Cyanogenmod RC2

E: Yep. Endless bootloop. Flashing CM over it wont help. Trying nandroid backup now.

It won't show payed apps if your country doesn't support them. I'm pretty sure Serbia doesn't.

Did you have to accept ToS when you run market again ? You might need to fake your fingerprint, i'll post something about that.
