Regarding this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1196417

Thanks for pointing out and after some more tests, seems that its all about DPI.

To fix, edit build.prop and change
Code:
qemu.sf.lcd_density=161
to
Code:
qemu.sf.lcd_density=160
then reboot.

this will change lcd density from 161 to 160. CM7 uses 161 for some reason but seems 160 will get all the blocked apps back.

After rebooting, clear market data and run market again. If you've removed/frozen the market updater app, enable it to get the new market. Those blocked apps should be available then.

Note:
160 will break market at some point per Dalingrin. I'm not sure but it works fine after several reboots so far(n154 on emmc).

I thought Market didn't work at 160?

Didn't know that, so thats why CM7 uses 161? Anyway, 160 seems to work fine for me(so far), I also read several ppl report 160 is good on new market. If its broken I'll back to 161, no big deal

The market will stop working with 160 in time. But if you force stop market and clear data, it will work for a while longer.

Thanks. After some more tests I can confirm that its all about lcd density. If clearing data can fix the broken market(on 160) I might still take that route--even its temporarily--instead of 161+old market.

Nice catch, hopefully this new information will lead to a permanent fix, with the lcd density at 160 the movies category now shows up for me too..

This shows that there is some really crappy coding going on over at Google...

Tried switching my lcd density to 160. It did not help at all. Facebook app still won't let me download and several apps do not show updates. Dissent seem like this is a fix.

Nice! Worked for me. Edited the file in root explorer, rebooted. Go to applications in setting to clear cache, and then clear data for the Market application.

after the market stops working do you just redo it or switch it back to get market again?
