You get this error if the device is "rooted" (meaing you have full root access).  There is an app in the Google Play Store that will temporarily allow you to un-root the device, and when done the registration will work.   I use OTA RootKeeper to temporarily un-root and then re-root.  The device must be un-rooted each time you attempt to use the Verizon Medai Manager app to view content.

Awesome!  OTA RootKeeper worked like a champ.  Too bad it's only 4:3.

If your device is NOT rooted, go to settings > security > UNCHECK allow from unknown sources.  Your device is reading as if it's rooted if you have that checked.  I just spent like an hour trying to figure that out.  XD
