Default How to fix Missing Apps on Market?...Read on...

Hi,

I have encountered many cases where people cannot see some apps in the market. Luckily I found a way to tackle this problem. Here try this, it should work, however I only tested this on my x8...

Settings —> Applications —> Manage Applications

Choose All

Choose Market

Force Stop

Back out, choose Google Service Framework

Force Stop

Clear Data

Back out to the homescreen, run the Market (it should fail – that’s what I want!)

Reboot

Wait at least one minute after the system boots up, then retry the Market.


So did it work for you?

Even after a reboot? I will clear cache & data on Market & reboot to solve this issue, though I have never messed with the Google Services Framework.

There's 20 kb of data but the wipe option is greyed out. Cache is empty.

Mate try this 2 or 3 times and then it might work, because It didn't work for me the first time either, but after the third try it works. And remember to switch off your phone straight after it tells you to and remember to wait for a couple of minutes after reboot.

All I ever needed was to clear market data... (And use TB to re-enable autoupdate for everything after that.)
