    I was reading about changing your build.prop settings can increase the number of apps available through google market. So I tried it. The first thing I found was that my phone info listed my phone as a prevail that was running mod: honeycomb 3.0, and the build was listed as honeycomb???? (I flashed MokeeOS and then I used a cm7 restore in CWM so I could run Cm7 with the kato/smartassv2 combo.) not sure where all this honeycomb stuff came from, I am guessing it was in the MokeeOS? but anyways.......

    Stock build was

    ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/full_prevail/prevail:2.3.7/gingerbread/eng.vaccar.20120109.214523:eng/test-keys

    I changed it to

    ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion/mahimahi:2.2/FRF91/43546:user/release-keys

    I have only tested out google goggles so far, but it works fine. I chose that app due to being denied multiple times before I was rooted.

    If anyone has the original ro.build.fingerprint for the precedent please post as I no longer have it. thanks.
