Default Unable to see protected apps in market - 08-20-2010, 06:30 AM

I have a beta version of the US streak and I can't see protected apps on the market. Are non-beta US versions also having this problem?

What exactly is a "protected app"? Are you using the stock 1.6 software?

After upgrading to 2.1 I am unable to see certain paid for items on the market place myself.

Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Yes, protected apps are certain paid apps on the market like slingplayer. I am running the stock 1.6 that came with the streak.

See my post here for a workaround to not seeing protected apps. Protected apps are apps that the developer has elected to not make visible to unauthorized phone/builds - these are usually pay apps, but occasionally are free as well.
