    Gaining full market access

    Hi,

    Is anyone aware of any way to access the market to its full capability outside the US?

    This whole blocking apps from certain countries is a huge backwards step for the great android OS.

    On my Desire I managed to get round it by rooting and using market access. Unfortunately that does no work on the EEE pad. Its a bit fraustrating having to google for apks and sideload them all.

    I can barely get access to any decent apps on the tablet.

    Have any of you managed to successfully use VPNs to gain full access?

    Hi neoghio, really sorry to hear about you situation. That could definitely be frustrating...

    Is your country in this list by chance?

    Was this the method you used for your Desire?

    Nah, I am in Gibraltar. I know its not on the list of supported countries but I managed to get round it on my Desire by using the market access app which is essentially the same as market enabler which you posted in your link.

    Have you successfully used market enabler/access on your EEE Pad?

    My last resort is to try VPN, I managed to set one up the other day but I still wasn't able to download apps, so I might need some trial and error to see if I can get it working.

    So frustrating not been able to get apps from the market. I know its easy to sideload apps but even then thats besides the point. Google have a great OS which is gaining huge market share across the world and they are still blocking out countries from accessing the market. I think android is now "globally" recognised around the world so I hope Google step up their game.

    Its a shame because they are alienating so many potential customers...

    I have no problems I love my EEE pad but I wouldn't recommend an android tablet to anyone in my country at the moment due to the simple fact that its a huge headache to do something which an iPad has no issues in doing.

    After trying just about all that my "skills" can do, I cannot find any way round to get the "full" android market.

    I have tried both market access and market enabler and seeing as they both spoof the GSM numeric number on the android device, its no use on the EEE pad as it only uses wifi or it just doesn't work on honeycomb it could be either or.

    I have also tried editing the build.prop file but again to no avail. I can get the market to show up as the US market and I can see all the apps etc... but when I click download/purchase it just sits on "waiting to install".

    I have also tried using a VPN but again, I can't download the apps.

    Any talented modder/developer know how to trick the EEE Pad too gain full access? Or has anyone successfully accomplished it?

    Already done that.

    Have you successfully tethered it and been able to see the full market?
