I own a MIUI-powered HD2 and a Chinese tablet on which I would like to install a couple of free apps that are intended for Italian market. I can see these apps from an A500 tablet but not from these two devices.
I tried Market Enabler (all are already rooted) on both the devices but it seems that it doesn't work. I can still see Chinese apps on the tablet and I'm still on an unknown market from the phone. I would actually like to install Skype on the tablet.
Does somebody know if Android Market now prevents Market enabler to do the trick? I also tried a couple of other enabler apps, but one said that operator change failed.
I understand that my question may look duplicate because lots of people ask how to install other-countries apps, but I'm asking if Google implemented some countermeasures.
[Update] I tried the following
- Clear Market data from Settings\Applications\Manage\All\Market
- Ran Market Enabler, set current market to Italy - TIM (should be 22201), said NO to prompt to switch to market at once. Checked that status bar reported "Current market: Italy"
- Checked that ME ran on startup by
- Started ME, noticed that current market is
- Switched again to Italy from list, chose YES to boot market
- Accepted Android Market license, still saw Chinese apps and no trace of Skype or other apps that I need
