*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 !


#[email protected]==#


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.


#[email protected]==#


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

Install instructions :
- Download Symp.market.Color.vX.X.zip
- 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


#[email protected]==#


FAQ :
1 - An app not showing ? Check on www.androlib.com 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 Symp.Market.Remover.zip 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 Symp.Color.market.vX.X.zip 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 : Symp.Market.Remover.zip, 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 => CM6-Market.fix.zip (simple permissions fix)

- Edit and flash your Build.prop according to this :

ro.build.description=soju-user 2.3.1 GRH78 85442 release-keys

I got stuck in a bootloop after flashing.
Cyanogenmod RC2

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

- An app not showing ? don't whine... Check on www.androlib.com if the requested app isn't missing from the market ! (ScummVM for ex.)

Be that as it may, the market in wildpuzzlerom eclair 2.1 still shows more apps than this patch applied to gapps-mdpi-20101020 when installed on CyanogenMod RC2? How's that possible? For instance I can't for the love of god find the app called "Appie". In the wildpuzzlerom market it's easy to find...

2 results for ROM Manager and 1000+ for video. Same as before I flashed this. Cyanogen mod RC2 btw.

What have I done wrong?

Best way to check if patched market works:

look for ICQ, the original ICQ app. it's not released for qvga, so if you can see it, the patched market works

I just don't know =/ Both 2.1 & 2.2 market had been patched by me, and that should be the same thing, might have something to do with roms' fingerprint.

What have I done wrong?
Settings => applications => manage applications => Market => Clear Caches.
The .zip should have done this, but it didn't. You should accept ToS again when accessing the market, then it should works.

No. There was no new ToS. That's strange, because I know there should be ToS after patching.
Same as previous answer, i'll post a V3 to fix the said issue.

Ahah, finally someone I can scream on ! Have you read the main page ? It's right under screenshots.


V3 posted : give it a try or purge market's datas & caches yourself, see FAQ Q°4

Hmm... Well I guess it's a mystery then... xD Just to be clear: the "video" search term gives 2072 hits In WPR2.1 and (about)1994 for the patched market in CM6.1rc2 The patch clearly works, but still... Stuff's missing. Weird.

    How I got this to work

    Using newly installed Wildfire v0.7.

    This is how I got the market to work:

    1. Rebooted into Recovery
    2. Applied Symp.Green.market.v6.1.zip
    3. Restarted phone
    4. Started Market
    5. Searched for previously missing app. In this case "smb" for Astro SMB addon
    6. File Still missing

    Returned to 1st post and read some more.

    1. Rebooted into Recovery
    2. Downloaded and installed MarketEnabler_v3.1.1.2.apk
    3. Changed my region to the US
    4. Went into Settings > Applications Manager > Clear Data for Market
    5. Launched Market
    6. Searched for "smb"
    7. Still no results

    Returned to 1st post and read some more.

    1. Rebooted into Recovery
    2. Downloaded and patched Symp.Market.remover.zip
    3. Rebooted
    4. Checked to see if all traces of Market links are gone? Gone.
    5. Rebooted into Recovery

    8. Set region using Market Enabler after reboot (Phone looses region after each restart as per ME's instructions)
    9. Searched for "smb"
    10. 19 Results
    11. Happy happy
