Anyone from the UK Manage to Installed the Natwest, RBS or Bank Control UK Apps on the U8800?

They don't show up on my phones market and on market.android.com they come up as not compatible with U8800, is this happening for all U8800 users?

Downloaded More Locale 2 and it comes back with the following info:

- Language: en
- Country: GB

So thats not a problem.

I then downloaded Market Enabler and it has the following code:

- 23410 (o2 UK)

This is also correct.

I am not sure why these apps wouldn't be compatible with the U8800, anyone got any ideas?

Was also thinking of editing the build.prop to something like the Desire but not sure exactly what needs changing.

Have tried both MIUI and CM7 and get the same results :(

Yup, me too.
Got as far as thinking about build.prop but not sure what needs editing.

Just looking at the build.prop in CM7 and the Market Fingerprint seems to be for the HTC Passion:

# Do not try to parse ro.build.description or .fingerprint
ro.build.description=passion-user 2.3.5 Geno 102588 release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion:2.3.5/Geno/102588:user/release-keys

Not sure what to change it too though?

Ok tried my girlfriends blade and it allows you to install the banking apps just fine so I have a loot at her build.prop file:

# Do not try to parse ro.build.description or .fingerprint
ro.build.description=passion-user 2.3.7 GRj22 121341 release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion:2.3.7/GRj22/121341:user/release-keys

Tried this on the U8800 and still no dice :(

Think I have found the problem, I have got an email back from Bank Control.

I'm guessing CM7 and MIUI use incompatible encryption libs :(

Gutted!


Hi Chris,

Thank you for trying the Bank Control application.

The Android Market must not tell you anything about incompatible application
because it has not upper version limit in the market metadata. The app runs
fine on 3.2 even and will run on 4.0. The only known problem is version
2.3.5, which is related to Market's bug rather than the app itself. 2.3.4
and 2.3.6. are both OK. It could be the same Android Market bug with 2.3.7.
It has been mentioned here: http://www.mobot.net/android-versions.

We'll get in touch with Google.

Also, it is important to get all updates from the operator rather than form
the manufacturer and the app does not run on unofficial mods due to
incompatible encryption libs.

Thanks for reporting and bets regards

Bank Control support


Hope this helps others too.

I find that banking apps are a waste of space, I prefer to just use the bank's mobile website instead
