    Really looking at the Galaxy S. Or do ya'll think another Android phone will be coming to Cellular South in the next few months that'll be worth the wait?
    It isn't difficult to root at all. I forget what method I used, but it was one of the many one-click methods that are out there. As for flashing, it is significantly different than HTC and Motorola android phones. Samsung decided to do things a bit differently, which is probably why development is slower. I definitely don't recommend flashing stuff for other phones yet, although I am pretty sure that the Mesmerize that U.S. Cellular got is the same phone as ours. I was able to get Clockworkmod recovery working using the mesmerize recovery image. I have dd images of every block device that I could find on my phone, otherwise I wouldn't be touching it at all.

    The Showcase is a great phone. If you have a hero you will be blown away. I know I was.

    Gameloft is giving away Dungeon Hunter HD through their Advent Calendar promotion, I believe. Google their blog. People are experiencing difficulties getting it, but I think they're working on it. And, since I haven't been able to download it yet, I'm not sure if it's a Demo or the whole game. I've received whole free games from them before when they celebrated their 10th anniversary earlier this year, so I'm pretty sure it will be the whole game. This is the first time they're including Android in a promotion. It's a 24 hr. window, and I received a tweet about 8:24 cst.

    I'm assuming that this would have been posted, had it been dealt with, but I just wanted to double: any progress on downloading protected apps on the Showcase?

    Now that I have a backup of my Samsung Galaxy S I am more willing to edit my build.prop file. As a result I now have protected apps working. I replaced our fingerprint with the fingerprint for verizon and after a reboot and a couple of market cache clearings I am now seeing protected apps. Just use root explorer or adb to make a copy of your build.prop located in /system. Then use a text editor to replace this line:ro.build.fingerprint=cs/SCH-I500/SCH-I500/SCH-I500:2.1-update1/ECLAIR/DJ20:user/release-keys with this line:ro.build.fingerprint=verizon/SCH-I500/SCH-I500/SCH-I500:2.1-update1/ECLAIR/DI01:user/release-keys Next replace the build.prop file on the phone with the edited one and reboot your phone. It took me 3 market cache clearings upon reboot to see mobile banking and slingplayer among others but it did eventually work. This will at least keep us going till it is fixed officially. This does the same thing as the previous mentioned post about the eris market fix but this allows us to still be seen as same model phone. Also as a side note ROOT IS REQUIRED that should go without saying but just in case it is there for good measure. You will not be able to access the build.prop without root permissions. Also for good measure it is best to attempt this after you have clockwordmod running and a working backup just in case something were to randomly go wrong, should be fine though.

    I hope it is fixed. I am interested in galaxy but not if it has data issues. Wife & I have iphones atm. Contract up in 10 days! It is great that you are able to work with CS to try and fix it.
