    Default jelly bean 4.1.1 - apps not compatible

    I just finished updating my Samsung Captivate (i897) to Jelly Bean 4.1.1. All is well and I love it except many of my favorite apps show up as incompatible in the app store.

    amazon
    audible
    autozone
    facebook
    pandora
    iheart radio
    imdb
    textnow
    firefox
    chrome
    opera mini
    pocket cloud
    usaa

    I see references to this problem for other people on other devices, and references to "other sources" to install apps. But, most every place I go is just a new front end for the app store, and the app is still incompatible.

    Please help! I don't want to have to reload the phone or downgrade. But, I the phone is of far less use to me without pandora and a few others.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Try editing your build.prop to that of another device or to your prior firmware. That will tell the store that you have a device you do not. Before updating I normally use Titanium Backup and then restore it so that I know all my apps are back on. I do occasionally encounter apps where it works on one device and not another, at which time I transfer the backup and restore it.
