help with "Live Search or Bing"

I have looked for the answer or even a similar question but have been unsuccessful. I have used live search for several years on my Sprint TP but now I continue to get the following pop up when I open the application
"Sorry, the Bing application isn't supported on this device. Go to m.bing.com in your browser instead"
I prefer live search over Bing even though they are similar. Now LS will not work at all. I have tried multiple different ROMS but still get the same pop up. What has changed or is it my device. If its my device what the hell happened. I have been running Mighty Rom for a long time. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You JC

Re: help with "Live Search or Bing"

Scott Rudy described this issue in his HP blog
http://h30507.www3.hp.com/t5/The-Watering-Can-of-Enterprise/Lack-of-Backward-Compatibility-Lost-Market-Share-bing-for/ba-p/81712
and suggests a workaround. It isn't the best scenario, but at least you can use it.
