    But you need to have HBO to get any use out of it....

    Yea... I'm being petty. It better be a free app considering you're shelling out $16/month to enjoy it.

    I don't think we're using the right terms here, but I could be wrong. I don't think these apps are 'incompatible', but rather it seems that access to them in the Marketplace is incompatible. For people that have these apps and have EE4, those same apps still work.

    So we just can't access them from the Marketplace.
    You are correct. Samsung/Verizon needs to fix that portion of it, or the app developers need to adjust the compatibility check of their apps.

    I have a rooted Verizon Charge with EE4 installed. I was having the same market problem, no HBO to Go, etc., and applied this suggested fix. I can now see all the apps but when I click on one to download it says "your item will be downloaded", I see the download animated notification begin then it disappears and I don't have the app. repeated attempts to d/l an app give the same result over and over.

    Any advice for a nooooooooob?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    http://jrummy16.com/jrummy/testing/fix.apk

    Thanks for the tip but no change. Another behavior that seems different is aside from it only downloading for about 1-2 seconds, it gives this message on most attempts when I go to "downloads", see it listed and try and install:

    This application has access to the following:

    STORAGE
    Modify or delete SD card contents

    NETWORK COMMUNICATION
    Full Internet Access

    PHONE CALLS
    Read Phone State

    SYSTEM TOOLS
    Prevent Phone From Sleeping

    When I say ok that screen disappears it then shows a status bar and says "starting download", that shows for about 1 second and then I am right back to my list of "downloads". BTW, in the "download" lists, the applications I have tried to download & install since the "fix" say "free" rather than all the others which say "installed".

    Thanks again in advance for any advice,

    Joe

    Howdy all,

    There is a major problem with the update. A lot of apps that could have been downloaded and shown in the App market before are now deemed imcompatible. Trust me, do a example

    TMZ
    HBO TO GO
    MLB ON BAT

    Doesn't download. I am very very angry right now. I've tried clearing caches, force stops, battery pulls, factory resets...nothing.

    Any insight? ** No I am not rooted and don't plan on it :-)
    I had my HBO to go backup it installed that way..Works no problem

    Hey Matt -- I believe the problem happens when you don't backup your apps or the biggie having to do a factory reset for some reason.

    The strange thing that I noticed was that when looking at the compatablility of the apps in the Android Market not logged in, it shows that it isn't compatable with the Droid Charge. Obviously it is as it's currently installed on my Charge with the EE4 update. It seems that to me it's the Android Market that pulled the compatability listing after the EE4 update. Maybe they are still checking whether it affected the functionality of the phone with certain apps.

    It couold be. When I called verizon about it she said she would notify Samsung since they were ones who pushed EE4.

    My market hasn't worked at all since I applied the "fix". I noticed when looking at my SD card that it contains a file called build.prop.bak. I think this is a backup of the altered file? Is there a way to reinstall this bak file and at least get back to my inferior (but working) previous market?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Use something like Root Explorer to rename your build.prop to build.prop.bad, then rename build.prop.bak to build.prop. Then reboot your computer and you should be set.

    I'm a total noob on this phone stuff. I certainly understand exactly what you are saying but since I can't d/l any apps, I have an app called "my files" which is how I found the bak file and it has a rename command. Would I be able to navigate to the position of the new build.prop file to rename it and if so, where would I find it in the directory structure? I also have something called ES File Explorer & something called ROM Manager if those help.

    I paid a guy to root my phone so I apologize in advance for being so clueless.

    Thanks again,

    I don't think root access in ES File Manager works with the Charge. Root Explorer would work for this.

    Just so you guys know, Verizon has washed their hands of this issue and have told posters at the VZW website to bring the issue up with the App developers. They told one poster to get in touch with HBO to get the HBO To Go App working.

    I must be really naive to think that Verizon might just decide that since they are selling a phone that has the access to the Android Marketplace (and a key selling point for VERIZON), THEY would contact the developers to alert them that a problem just developed with the latest EE4 update.

    I'm beginning to see why I spent the last 3 years with AT&T...not that they were any bargain in terms of dropped calls.

    Unreal.

    This is the way Verizon deals with any device issues. They take no blame and want you to take it up with other companys. I have had gps issues and they told me to contact Novatel and Google because my maps could not lock on. I asked if I should contact Microsoft as well because my Bing maps on my Fascinate was not locking either and they said yes. I even left Verizon because of the poor customer service but in the end they were the only company that could give me good enough service. Its Verizons policy to deny any problems and to place blame on everything and anyone. Never tell them you use a third party app because they will place the blame no matter how stupid it sounds on something you have on your phone.
