It looks like Google haven't 'tagged the Liquid live' yet, which is annoying... some of my purchased apps don't appear in the Marketplace!

I got round it by changing the fingerprint in the build.prop to that of the Droid... ;)

We might be better changing it to another Donut device thinking about it rather than the Droid... however, to change it I did...

- adb pull /system/build.prop

Then I edited it to comment out the fingerprint line, and add...

ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/voles/sholes/sholes:2.0/ESD20/17572:user/ota-rel-keys,release-keys

Then I pushed the build.prop back...

- adb remount
- adb push build.prop /system/build.prop

I did all this on a wiped device before I ran market for the first time.

Thx for the info

EDIT: since i couldn't find any general info thread on liquid and coming from a HTC Magic which has physical buttons for answering how does that work on liquid ?

This is cause of the WVGA Donut... Not all apps are compatible.

Xmoo, no it's not, for example Twidroid free appears, but not Twidroid Pro. It's to do with how Google 'approve' shipping devices for protected apps.

Hello:
I just ordered the Liquid, and I am "across the pond".
(Also coming from a Magic).
Isn't it Google that decided on what gets into Market, and isn't that on a country by country basis?

Cant get acc. to private apps atm.
tried changing the build.prop but must have failed or only possible to change it right after a clean install?
Feel like sharing your build.prop file paul?

It can definitely be tricky if not done on a fresh device! Have you cleared the cache from the vending directory?
