I'd like to switch off copy protection for my app, too.
I think I have successfully managed to reproduce this issue on an 1.5
emulator _just_once_. What I saw from the logcat was that the process
couldn't access the preferences and the database because it ran under
a different UID than the UID that database was stored with. Is this
the error you are referring to?
I'd like to provide a wrapper that tests this condition and guides the
customer to an uninstall. But I'd have to reproduce this condition to
safely test against it. Any ideas how to get this reproduced
successfully on an emulator?
I tried a lot of combinations of
adb -e install -l <app>
adb -e install -r <app>
But nothing yet ...
