You changed build.prop?

I think the trick is to get MyVerizon to work. I have it decompiled and I have been trying to find something, not sure what I am looking for yet.

Yes. I edited the build.prop with no luck.

Can someone tell me how that app works? Do you need a vcast account to use it or will it automatically enroll you into one?

You don't need a vcast account. I don't have one. It just runs on the stock rom, and most 2.1 roms. Not having it now that the "labor dispute" is over is a total party foul!

We shouldnt have to use anything else, Verizon needs to explain to everyone why they are blocking access.

Please visit this thread and Make Our Voices Be Heard!

I responded although not with the response you wanted. I think you should cool your anger a bit until/unless we have proof that they are blocking it.

I believe it's likely that our AOSP-based ROMs simply don't have something in place that's required. And while CM7 is CM7, well, there are a LOT of hacks in place for the TBolt, so perhaps one of those hacks have broken DRM or something like that. Given that nobody but our community can investigate this possibility, well, I think it's our duty to investigate it.

Your post over there was fine, but it's fishy if Verizon pushes an update to the app then it suddenly stops working on asop running Tbolts. Of course there are assholes on the Vzw forum just like most forums that can't simply post a link to the supposed solution. Plus the solution they are talking about unless the Vsso apk was updated isn't working since Verizon pushed the update.

I'm also not angry as much as disappointed once again with the Android community forums, people want to argue instead of help. Slayher is aware now of the issue, not sure he would have the time to dig into it though. I'm not technical enough with Android to get deep into it, I might try pulling apart the last OTA as it has a working My Verizon apk that might be part of the problem.

ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED, I will donate to the developer that figures this out.
