Detection found the Market fix !

Postby Detection » February 6th, 2011, 4:36 am

TESTED ON MY OWN BROKEN MARKET SCROLL AND WORKS 100%

Ok so I did a little investigating last-night, and came across this guide.
http://www.slatedroid.com/wiki/index.ph ... For_Slates

It was designed to repair the market hanging / not downloading problem we are all facing by replacing the Android ID

-------


At the end of this, your scroll will be recognised by the market, as the Android SDK emulator and allow downloading again.



I have now got a fully working Market back on my FW1.01



Follow the guide to the letter > download the full SDK and system.img > make a new VM > and run the emulator

(I chose Android 2.1 update 1 in the emulator setup, as the guide was written for 1.6)

Copy the AndroidID from the emulator using the commands in the guide
Code: Select all
adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/accounts.db "select * from meta";


Push the ID from the emulator to the scroll also using the commands in the guide
Code: Select all
adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/gls.db "update meta set intvalue='number_from_previous_commands' where name='androidId'";


Install this market.zip through CWM (Dont know if this part is necessary but my old market wouldn't work without this update)
Market 2.2.11

Reboot and download from the market :D

(This does take a little time, but well worth it in the end)



Enjoy!

(This will probably also work if you take the Android ID from any other device with a working market rather than going through the whole Emulator part)

would this work if, for example, a clean backup was made by yourself, and then distributed for other users?

Yeah, I got that, it's just that, as far as I know, there is no such animal as a 'clean backup'. Could be I'm wrong (it had been known to happen :P), but doesn't one have to put in user information on initial startup?

Its possible (If I could make a clean backup, which I cant really without wiping the scroll)

But the market "may" block the device ID if it noticed it was being accessed by multiple devices at once


It not a difficult fix really, and once you do it, you have a unique ID, as does everyone else :D

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Clearly something I have not downloaded any help appreciated

Massive thanks to Detection! After a nightmare getting the adb app to recognise my scroll I got the new ID applied, and the market does indeed appear to be working! :D I've updated one of my paid for apps no problems. Long may it continue!
