 What kind of current percentage of refunds are developers typically seeing
on the market? More than a 5%?

Thanks,
Shane

For my $0.99 game (which does not have a free demo version available
yet), the current refund rate for orders that are passed the refund
deadline (so they have either been charged or refunded) is 43%.

Obviously there have been major reliability problems with the Market
this weekend and many of those people may have requested a refund
because their download failed, so it's too early to draw any
conclusions.

 For me, maker of "The Gube", a $0.99 app, the cancellation rate is
about 33%. It has been hovering between 25% and 35%.
But my app has been in the market for only a few days. So, i don't
know how reliable this statistic is. :-)

I just wanted to update this thread in case someone reads this old
message in the archives and is scared away from the platform by the
43% figure. In the last week my return rate has been around 11%. I
have added a demo version now, so presumably that accounts for some of
the difference.

 For what is worth I am seeing about 40% cancellation. About 75% of
those cancellations are within 2 mins of the authorization so I assume
those are mainly download issues.

2. How to push a .so file to /system/lib in version beta 0.9???

Even still, if I rebuild the system image the emulator will not
successfully load that new system image.  In my case I am swapping the
default Droid font out for my own font and the emulator just loops
through initialization code but never actually comes up with the
modified beta system image.  I had no problems on the m5 emulator.  I
am using mkfs.yaffs2.
