Fixing the New Google Market

Borrowed from XDA user arda99: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1218974

If the recent update to Google Market has stopped some of your apps from updating and restricted your access to some market apps, changing your LCD density seems to correct the problem. If, when you go to the Market home, you see Apps, Games, and Books listed at the right, but not Movies (just a gap under Books), then your access is restricted.

These seem like the fewest number of steps to resolve the problem:

5) Reboot
6) Run Market

If Market is still limited, repeat step 1 and open it again.
Density of 160 has been known to cause the Market to stop working in the past (that's why CM7 and Nooter default to 161), so you may have to repeat this process, changing the density back to 161, in the future, and then change it back to 160 again to get full access back :P So far, no one has had that issue after applying this fix.

If you were using a custom LCD density (I like 187), you can change it back after you get Market working--as long as you don't clear Market data again, and the app doesn't perform another check (which it doesn't appear to do often), it will still think your density is 160. You can make a back-up of Market data in Titanium Back-up to restore in case it does re-check your density, as a shortcut to the process above.
