    Default Why can't I find Overclocker and Satellite Flybys in the Market?

    I'm running the original leaked 2.2 and rooted. I've got 2 apps that I want to buy, DX/D2 Overclocker and Satellite Flybys, but neither show up on my phone when I search for them in the Market. Anyone know why? Both of them say "no matches found" but I can find them fine on my PC.

    You need your build props fixed. Using rom manager dl rom then click beesley then the first build prop. Search in market for us bank. If you only have about 4 your not getting the whole market.

    I don't really want to run a rom. I like my phone the way it's set up right now. Is there any other way I can get an app to download or maybe another way to purchase, download the apk and sideload the app?

    Can I get this beasly build props fix without otherwise changing my setup?

    Build props is not a rom. Just fixes your props since your running a leak 2.2

    Rom manager is an app that allows you to download and install roms, but you don't have to. When used with the dx bootstrap, you can make nandroid backups that are useful for restoring your phone to a previous state if something goes awry. You can only use rom manager if you are rooted, however.

    It's easy enough to use if you are rooted. Go into download rom and find beesley's build.props. (These are just files that affect your current rom without changing it. Truthfully, the changes are mostly noticeable if you are looking for something, like the market fix.) Download and install the one that applies to your set up, i.e. leaked froyo or OTA froyo. There is more info on them if you just search around online.

    OK, I did this, downloaded Rom manager, then the build props, elected to not perform any of the backups or extras (just did a nandroid backup yesterday), just install it. Now I'm sitting at the screen with the little android, and a triangle with an exclamation point in it. What do I do from here...as specifically as possible please.

    Never mind. I rebooted 2 more times (seems pretty fu cked up to me) and got back to my normal home screen. I searched the market for us banks and now have 10 results, but I still can NOT find/download either of the 2 apps I started this thread about.

    Can anyone tell me how I can determine if the build.props was actually updated?

    Tried to reflash the build.props (starting from re-downloading from Rom Manager) and got the exact same error result. Is putting the build.props on supposed to end in an error and you have to force a reboot, or does it normally install and reboot itself?

    I did. That's why I said you need the build prop update. Both apps were found. Use the us bank search. Or search tmz. If tmz does not show up the build props need to be done. Might need to run bootstrapper to.

    grey darrah , you first need to download and run the droid x bootstrapper , by koushik . you bootsrap the recovery (top button) then run the build prop edits, then you will be right as rain. and yes the unstable apps are there , i checked.

    OK, I guess I need more detailed instruction. I'm missing something. I already have Koush's bootstrap. Here's what I do:

    1. run the top button of bootstrap (Bootstrap Recovery). It says Success. I click OK and then close Bootstrap.
    2. Launch the free version of Rom Manager
    3. Select Download ROM
    4. Select Beesley's Build.Props
    5. Select Build.prop mods (the top item on this screen)
    6. Select Download
    7. Select OK (without checking the Swype box)
    8. Select OK (without checking either backup existing ROM or Wipe Data and Cache)
    9. Select OK onthe Reboot and Install dialog
    10. Then stuck on the little android and exclamation point page.
    11. After being stuck here for a few minutes, I click menu, then see the errors that I posted earlier in this post.
    12. Select Advanced, then reboot rocovery
    13. Stuck on little android page again, and hit search button, then select reboot sytem now (should I maybe select apply sdcard:update.zip instead???) and it reboots me to my home screen but I still can't find the apps (because I'm pretty sure the Build.props install failed).

    What am I doing wrong?

    your running the first leak of 2.2 , right ? did you not purchase the ROM manager app after installing the the free version . I beleive you need both versions.
    After buying the RoM manager , push the top button "flash clockwork mod recovery"
    then go to bootstrapper and hit top button , click ok after"sucess"
    now go to download rom from birdman. in that section you will click the middle button "build.prop.mods"
    Download then install with no wipe , if you want to back up current phone options do it . I suggest make backup.
    Then install . should work just fine . do not push install from sdcard , there is nothing there to install.

    In bootstrapper after you click bootstrap recover and get success click ok. Then click reboot recovery. It will reboot. If it goes into recovery then select reboot. Then do all u did before. If you never flashed a rom it would never completed the bootstrap. Try that out.

    When you flash something (like the Build.props), after downloading the ROM and selecting OK on the Reboot and Install dialog, is it supposed to reboot the phone and then completely restart, back to your home screen (all by itself), or is it normal for it to hang for a minute or two on the android/exclamation point screen?

    &%!!!!!*&***!!! This is not how I wanted to be spending my Sunday! Thanks for all the help so far, but it's still not working. I did what you said first, then what gator said (buying the paid version of ROM Manager) and neither method did anything (and yes, I'm running the original version of the 2.2 leak). I still get stuck at after Reboot and Install and I still cannot find those two apps.

    Any other ideas?

    I'd appreciate it if anyone could take another look at the steps I'm going through (above) to see if I'm screwing something up.

    Bummer dude... but I know what you're doing wrong. We'll get you running no worries.
    So the ONLY issue you're having is that you're choosing the wrong package from beesley's build.prop mods. The first option ("Build.prop mods") is just a menu header. You actually have to choose one of the lower options. My opinion, use "OTA Market Fix - w/ Mods". So this is what you'll do:
    Open ROM manager
    Select Download ROM
    Select Beesleys etc....
    Scroll down and select "OTA Market Fix - w/ Mods"
    Don't check backup, don't check wipe
    Select ok to restart.
    Done.

    I have to say though, I'm a bit nervous about the whole process. Not that any of this is fairly dangerous, but maybe the leaked ROM isn't where you should be. The way I look at it, the only benefit to running an unofficial ROM these days is to get the benefits of de-blurring, or zip aligning, etc. If you don't want to run a cooked ROM, the OTA is going to be better for you. I can tell you for sure that the original leak had MANY issues which were either resolved with the OTA, or (as with many of us here) with successive leaks or cooked ROMs. If you need help returning to stock or updating your leak, I'd love to help; but I think you need to reconsider where you're at.

    First, an important question...You're say that I should download the OTA Market Fix - w/ Mods even though I'm not on the OTA 2.2, but running the original leak 2.2. It should still be OK to install the OTA Market Fix - w/ Mods?

    Now to your other suggestions (but don't forget to answer the first question). Until trying to find these two apps in the market today, I've not had a single problem with the 2.2 leak. I believe it has bugs, but for the things I do on my phone, I don't see them. I don't have any objections to bloatware...I never use it, but it causes me no pain being there. If I were to install an actual ROM (not just the build.props), what would you recommend that would also be the easiest for me to install. I don't have another day to screw around rebooting my phones 17 times while searching the net for solutions to my idiocy. If there was something that ran great, and could be installed pretty quick without requiring me to rebuild my phone from scratch, I'd be interested.

    Thanks.

    Thinking more about it all (but anxious for the answer to that first question in the previous post), I'm very interested in updating my leak, but like I said, I'm really not wanting to get stuck ****ing around with my phone again for another day. Sometimes, quick and easy can't be had, but that's what I want if it's available. An update sounds nice to me, but I'm really not wanting to have to re-root, re-install all my apps, and reconfigure all my home screens and settings.
    Any semi-simple solutions for me?

    OK El Poblano, if you come back to this thread and you have the time, tell me what I should upgrade to, and the easiest way to do it. Step by step if possible and don't assume I know too much.

    Right now I'm running the original 2.2 leak with no mods/ROMS. I'm rooted with Unstable Apps Easy Root (because I like the simple things) and have Koush's Bootstrap (just made a nandroid backup yesterday), Root Explorer, Titanium backup (fresh backup of that as well) and now I also have the premium version of ROM Manager.

    If u want a easy plain 2.2 that I have no problems with use flyX. Others skin and theme them up. flyX is not. It just deletes some junk like blockbuster. Then u can build prop and theme as you like. Or just check for the update ota 2.2

    Haha no worries, however, you'll have to sit painfully and listen to me blabber about this and that.

    1. You'll be fine with the OTA 2.2 build.prop. So Android is based on Linux (still uses the Linux kernel). The great thing about Linux is that nearly all the innerworkings are stored in text documents. The build.prop is one of these text documents. You can actually open it yourself and adjust different settings (the system ID, VVM, Dalvik heap size etc...). The reason why you can't see the entire market is that your device's fingerprint ID is that of the leaked ROM which was never allowed access to protected apps on the market. So, Beesley's mods have fixed this issue by replacing the leaked fingerprint with another, allowed fingerprint. The other mods are a bit more technical, but will increase battery life and performance modestly.

    2. ROM selection can be difficult, as each have their pros and cons. Personally, I have found Rubix 1.0 Focused to be the best fit for me. I have tried all the current nonblur ROMS, but haven't used any Blurred ROMs since the leak.
    If you give me an idea more on what you're looking for in a ROM (level of customization, etc), we'd have a point to jump from to get you into the perfect ROM for you.
