  1. Maybe I put this in the wrong place, I thought this section was for new feature requests, if incorrect I apologize. But, if you looked around you'd see this particular email unlocking feature isn't available to those of us running older Android versions, "before 3.0" and it mentions that on the page you linked. Anyway, request deleted because Poweramp said they were incorporating request into v 551. Do some reading yourself Timmy.
  2. Request you add support for Non-Google email account unlocking on pre-3.0 Android devices. (esp. Motorola Droid X2) A number of prepaid providers in the U.S. are offering Android smart phone service with low end phones or bring-your-own-phone programs. Tracfone, for one, limits Android service to 3G equipment only so phones like the Motorola X2 are seeing new life as BYOP devices on Tracfone. Unfortunately these previous generation phones are stuck on Gingerbread. Would be good to use Poweramp, my preferred player, on my Droid X2 without adding a Google account. Thanks
  3. woofit Thanks for the details. Yes, for Androids below 3, there is no Android default email app and accounts, thus it won't work. I'll update the info on purchase page. Here's where I got the idea it worked...from the non-Google account download section of your website, it says: APK file, 6.5mb, non-Google Play distribution version NOTE: Please ensure you have Unknown sources check box checked in Android Settings => Applications (prior Android 4.0); or Android Settings => Security (Android 4.0+). If you don’t have this checked or if you don’t have such checkbox, you won’t be able to install Poweramp this way." My Android version was part of every email I sent you and 2.3.5 does show an email and account section on my phone that I referred to several times. I imagine others have been wasting time on this also. I know you're busy but please read the details in user correspondence before generating a download link and insisting something works. I'll watch for the Gingerbread revision. Gingerbread and Froyo may be around a while yet since a number of prepaid providers in the U.S. are offering Android smart phone service with low end phones or bring-your-own-phone programs. Tracfone, for one, limits Android service to 3G equipment only so phones like the Motorola X2 are seeing new life as BYOP devices on Tracfone. Unfortunately these previous generation phones are stuck on Gingerbread, at least for those who don't flash a new ROM. Look forward to getting Poweramp back without using a Google email.
  4. I'm using the stock ROM, nothing exotic or hacked, and have followed your instructions to the letter on both rooted and unrooted phones, Poweramp will not unlock without Google. I've tried 2 different examples of the same Droid X2 model running 2.3.5. a common older phone and android version that unlocks fine with google. Using the Poweramp build from my website purchase link (February '14 purchase) - v550 with a fresh unlocker install on factory reset phones and I've advised all this repeatedly in separate emails. I've been communicating with you from the start and your solution was always to reload from the link you provide in your reply, no help. Opened this thread to see how others were faring. I understand the challenges you must face with models and android versions but my configuration seems pretty basic. Poweramp has great features and sound quality but your procedure does not work for me so I'll move on to something else 'til someone can point to a method that actually works.
  5. No, unfortunately. Poweramp says it should work but it will not unlock without Google for me.
  6. Using same unlocker I received 2 weeks ago but tried your link all the same, never has worked. I've contacted support repeatedly over last couple weeks through device and your replies appeared to be automated in that they were identical and offered the same solution...reload from this link followed by locking. Then replies stopped. I'll try again through the phone but too much effort already invested. Finally opened forum thread to see if others were having success and how they did it. 500 views and no details yet.
  7. "There is a difference between "someperson@yahoo.com" registered on device as Yahoo account and as Email account. Email account icon (on Stock android) looks like this:" Thanks for your reply. This would explain the problem if I were entering the Yahoo email as a Yahoo Account . I'm not doing that. I am entering the same yahoo email I registered with on your web site and I'm entering it as an email account using the Email heading. The yahoo email shows up as an email in the account section of the phone. 1. I install Poweramp and unlocker from the email links you sent when I purchased from your website. 2. I launch the app and I believe it thanks me for purchase but that window flashes by quickly so I'm not sure. It then says "Thanks for updating Poweramp" When I open Poweramp settings it launches a license check and says "Failed to verify license" and "APM response No Valid Google Accounts" I've generated a couple of emails to you through the program itself. I thought these would contain a report on the specifics. In any event I've given you these same details in separate emails. The phone is rooted but that shouldn't matter since it did the same thing on an unrooted phone. Using stock rom 2.3.5. I believe I'm following the correct procedure but Poweramp still searches for a Google account and won't unlock.
  8. I bought it twice from the Google Play store but decided to leave a Google account off this phone. Based on Poweramp's own guidance I bought it a third time directly from them but can't use it. It would be nice if they'd come up with a way to purchase legitimately and unlock without Google. It's done in other apps, e.g., Titanium Backup, Fancy Widgets, etc.
  9. I'm not hearing from Poweramp anymore. For those checking this thread to see if you can purchase from the Poweramp website and unlock WITHOUT using a Google account or email...Based on my experience I would say NO you cannot despite what Poweramp appears to occasionally say. If anyone is successful please post what you did.
  10. I used the Yahoo account in the box when I purchased the web unlocker and I entered it as an email on the phone, it's the only email account listed on the phone. The entry is accurate, no transpositions or errors. I have installed and reinstalled 8-10 times on two different examples of the same model phone that's running Gingerbread 2.3.5. I still receive an "unable to verify license" window and Poweramp locks. I should also say that these phones did unlock Poweramp using a Play Store purchase version before they were factory reset. "We don't support Yahoo accounts or any sorts of other accounts for website Unlocker. If you can add that Yahoo account email as Email Account to your device, Poweramp Unlocker will do the activation (you can then remove that Email account and Unlocker if you wish)." I have to say that the above seems contradictory. It appears that you're saying now that you don't support non-google accounts then you say that a Yahoo email will work for unlocking. If it won't unlock with a Yahoo or Hotmail registration then please state that unequivocally on the purchase page or better yet prevent the purchase if a non Google account is entered in the registration box. If it works it would be good to hear from support about the specifics of my case. I like your app and appreciate the work you've put in but I'd sure like to have functionality without Google, something you indicated (again?) was possible.
  11. Yep, it's frustrating. I finally rephrased my question to Poweramp like this: "Must the account be a GOOGLE account or GOOGLE email account? I put a Yahoo email account on the phone and registered it when I bought the unlocker from your website. It won't unlock.Will Poweramp work using a Non-Google email account from the account section of my phone?Your FAQ and emails sure make it sound like it will, that's why I bought it a third time." And got this answer from Poweramp: "When you buy from Poweramp site you may use any account, it doesn't have to be Google." So Poweramp confirms what I thought earlier and should be unlocking with only a single non-google account on phone. On my phone it appears to unlock in that it thanks me for purchase but when I go into settings it immediately launches a license check, says it can't find a Google account and then license not verified. It's a fine app or I wouldn't go to this trouble but I wish their own website version would license the way it's supposed to.
  12. Been using the unlocked Poweramp player for a few years now but always tied to a play store purchase. Chose not to enter a Google account on latest phone and saw this in FAQ: Posted 17 May 2013 - 12:00 PM Q. I have device (tablet, phone) without Google Accounts, can I use Poweramp Full Version? Q. I don't want to use Google Account (e.g. due to the privacy reasons). Can I use Poweramp Full Version? Starting from May 2013 we also support ordinary Email account as Poweramp Full Version account for purchases made on website. This is implemented in Poweramp-(alt)-Full-Version-Unlocker-2.0-build-22 and above, if you have old version of Unlocker, contact us and we will provide with the new version. Google account can be used as previously. Just enter your device email account in Poweramp purchase form and Unlocker will work with it. Also, we can change your account by your email sent to Poweramp.maxmpz gmail.com (please provide your order id and desired new email). I repurchased the unlocker through the Poweramp website registering a yahoo account listed on the phone's account settings and Installed as per order instructions but Poweramp fails to unlock. I get a message saying it contacted Google and could not find a Google account. Been through multiple full reinstallations, in the correct order, but program continues to search for a Google account and not finding it stays locked. Did I misinterpret the FAQ above? Anyone have luck unlocking with a non-Google account following the procedure I followed?
