Hello, before I rooted my phone's firmware, I was able to always get points from watching videos on Flurry and installing apps.

After I rooted and installed custom firmware on it, I tried getting points the usual way by watching videos on Flurry and installing apps, but now it's not even crediting anything anymore.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening/how I can try to fix it?

I've tried reinstalling and wiping app data and that's no go. I could try again.

I have a feeling that the app may be bound to my old firmware, and thus it won't credit for my current firmware.

If anyone has any idea, that would be great, thanks!

I've always had rooted firmware I don't think it affects anything... but I've never received points for offers completed on the Android app and I have completed multiple download offers and videos (videos not approving cmon?)

The last few apps i downloaded haven't approved for me, maybe there is a problem with them at the moment.

if you had and used the app (and it credited offers fine) but then it stopped crediting after you rooted your phone, I can only surmise that it has something to do with that. It could depend too on the actual ROM that you used, since not all of them are the same nor are any of them guaranteed to work perfectly. Try reinstalling the default ROM back on your phone and then try a 1 point video from Flurry.

If you have noticed that in the last couple days that it has not been crediting you but it worked perfectly fine before that, then there may be something going on with their system. Many of the advertisers have a base of operations on the East Coast which was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy.

That doesn't mean that all of their servers are back working at 100% though. I'm not saying it definitely is effecting their offers crediting, just saying that it is a possible reason for offers not crediting some users :)

Yeah, I've pretty much tried all the usual methods, and that's the same conclusion I've arrived to: it probably has to do with the ROM I have currently.

It's kind of hard to go back to the default ROM after all the nice features in this one, but I suppose if I /really/ need the points, then I can reinstall the default ROM and try it again.


I've had this issue since around the last week of October, so I know it's probably not the servers, so my guess is the ROM I'm on.

I was moreso concerned that the issue was that maybe Points2Shop considered my new ROM a different phone, so it would not work for me. Since Points2Shop has a policy of only allowing you to have only one account per household, I assumed the same for a phone.
