Root Problems with license checks..


May 18, 2011
Hi guys,

Wonder if someone could help me out. Ive got a samsung galaxy tab p-1000 sim free/3g. I rooted with superoneclick prog, and then ran the "allow non market place apps". Superuser is in my applicaions so i guess the root went fine. I placed some non market place apps/games on root of the internal memory in a folder i made called "android downloads". I placed around 8 apk's in total which i then installed with astro manager. I think all of them installed fine but when i went to run them, some did i license check and failed, then the app/game shuts down. I have "allow non market place apps" turned on in settings. I have a pay as you go sim card in the device. Do i have to turn wifi off to bypass the license check? Do the apps/games apk files have to be copied & installed onto external sd card instead of internal memory.

If anyone could please tell me were im going wrong i would be very grateful.

Also...some of the games only run in half, or a quarter of a screen. I guess this is due to them being made for a htc handset. Anyway of getting galaxy tab only apks?

Thankyou anyway guys, the main problem is the license check. Well appreciated!!
