Desire Z Modaco Rom r2 and protected Market applications.

After installing r2 of Paul's Desire Z ROM, I noticed that I could no longer find or download applications from the Market if they have their Protected flag set

To fix this, you need to use adb to pull the build.prop (a type of ini file for Android, containing information about the ROM) to your PC and change one line.

So in a command line, type the following:
 adb -d remount  
 adb -d pull /system/build.prop   

This will download the build.prop file from your phone to the current directory. Use a text editor (like notepad++) to open the file and change the following line: 

to this:

be careful not to change anything else.

Then push it back to the phone and reboot it, by typing:
 adb -d push build.prop /system/build.prop   
 adb -d reboot   

After this, you should be able to see protected applications in the market.

If you make a mistake while editing build.prop and something gets messed up, simply reflash the ROM.
