Does anyone know what the default/native pixel density should be for the U8800 X5?

I've been having issues with Market apps not being compatible ever since I have been playing around with both CM7.1 and Oxygen 2.3.2. Those same apps were working/compatible when I had Oxygen 2.2.1 running, but have not been able to load them from the market after installing both CM7.1 and Oxygen 2.3.2. After a bit off googling it sounds like it could be a pixel density issue. Although, to be honest, it sounds like the newer (v3.1.11) market versions are just being a lot pickier with resolutions, and won't even let you download an app if it detects even a hint of incompatibility. Argghh!!!

Anyway, I wonder if some kind person with a stock X5 U8800 ROM could do me a favour and have a look at their build.prop file (system/bulid.prop) using root explorer and tell me what their LCD density is set at.

lines:
ro.sf.lcd_density=???
qemu.sf.lcd_density=???

Any help would be much appreciated! :)
TIA

Ok, after a fair bit more googling, I have solved my own problem.
It turns out it is the ro.build.fingerprint line in the build.prop file that stops certain apps being downloaded.

I changed it to the info that was in the Oxygen 2.2.1 build.prop file and I was able to download the apps in question again. Yay! It seems that if the fingerprint line isn't on Google's list of approved fingerprint versions, it will cause certain apps to be incompatible. Although, it could be something on the developer manifest side as well, because it only affects certain apps.
