Hey Guys good news
I found a solution to enable copy protected apps for the new firmwares in market.
But you need to root your phone! You can root the new firmwares with this method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=112
THIS ROOTING METHOD ONLY SEEMS TO WORK WITH XXJI2 AND NOT WITH XWJI4

Unzip and copy the following file(file is attached) "build.prop" with "Root Explorer" into "system" folder on your phone memory and overwrite the old build.prop.
After that Restart your phone and try to search copy protected apps. You have to start market 2 or 3 times to make changes work.

Within the build.prop file i changed following line
"ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/GT-I5800/GT-I5800/GT-I5800:2.1-update1/ECLAIR/XXJI2:user/release-keys"
to
"ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/GT-I5800/GT-I5800/GT-I5800:2.1-update1/ECLAIR/XXJG7:user/release-keys"

As you can see i only changed fingerprint firmware version for market to a version that worked for me.
This Fix is something like MarketFix for GalaxyS

Try it out ;)
