Run New Android Market Let Your device lag ?

Run New Android Market Let Cannot purchase by MarketEnabler ?

Run New Android Market Driving You CRAZY ??

You know, New Market is Really Awesome, but...

We have some reason to use the old Market,
because :

1. Some countries can't purchase app/game.(That's sxcks)
2. Fast loading speed.(New Market=Laggy stuff)
3. Simple User Interface.
4. Have 'Just In' area.(Get new item)
5. No update purchased apps issue.

In some country's Market, If you slide down at 'Just In'
cause the 'process' error, there also fix.

Easy to use :

Just click button new/old market, and Reboot to get effect.

If you want to buy apps but can not see any purchase item in Market,
Remeber after reboot, you need run Market Enabler first and go Setting
->long press T-Mobile(us)->Set fake provider now, then run the Market,
and you could see/buy the purchase item.(only working on Market version 2.3.6)

>>> Download link 1)
>>> Download link 2

>>> Or you might download OldMarket from YAAM market.

Running app and press Old Market button :

After reboot going to your application list and run Android Market :

Your Old Market v2.3.6 is back !

PS : Some device need to uninstall Market first. If OldMarket app didn't work on your device,
try uninstall Market.

SMS Send/Receive : Process in app upgrade, if you worry about that, or SMS upgrade not support in your country, please press "Donate to me" button under

Worked great here, the manual way ( gave me a force close but now I finally have the old market back...

Feels good to have a market that actually responds (though I liked the new looks more). And to think that the new one lagged like hell on my sgs2... unbelievable.

Some guys said he meet rare FC after runing OldMarket...

If your NewMarket already opened in memory, don't worry that's normal.

Just Reboot and get the Market you want.

This didn't work for me. I did reboot after clicking the Old Market button. The instructions are a little difficult to follow. How do you 'Run MarketEnabler first and set fake provider now'? I can't find 'MarketEnabler'??

I still have the new market, and I really hate it, so any help would be appreciated.
