EDIT: I've put the new gapps.zip to update all ur gapps . This has to work : ) Just flash this from the recovery . It'll overwrite your old gapps , giving you the latest of all the basic gapps (incl.the new Market )
You can then go to the new market and install the updated Gmail,Voice Search,Google Search,Maps,Youtube app etc.




New Android Market (version 2.2.6) features include:

1.Refund window changing to 15 minutes
2.New carousel with featured apps on main page
3.Widgets and Live Wallpapers categories added
4.Related content added to app page
5.Single page app viewing, all info in one place
6.Max size for apk files increased from 25 MB to 50 MB

Also the Downloads now get paused instead of getting cancelled if there is a network/data interruption
I am not making a flashable update since it might clash with the original Vending.apk . So here are the steps to remove the old market and install the new one.


1) Use adb to remove and install the new market.
a) adb remount
b)Backup your current Market by
adb pull /system/app/Vending.apk Vending.apk

c) adb shell rm /system/app/Vending.apk

Rename the apk you downloaded (MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE RIGHT APK FOR ECLAIRS OR FROYO) to Market.apk and put the apk in the Android SDK/tools folder then
adb push Market.apk /system/app


OR
Simply use your favourite Root File Manager (Root Explorer ,SU explorer , Android Commander etc.) and go to /system/app and delete Vending.apk .
Then put the New Market apk in /system/app



Restart your phone and you're good to go

I have SparksMOD . It should work on all CM 6.1 (Android 2.2.1) and all Froyo ROMS.

Make sure you restart your phone and follow my instructions carefully.
Also try running fix permissions from recovery incase it doesnt help.

You cannot replace or manage Android phone system files through normal File managers like Astro,Linda etc.

Best way I recommend is to Use Android Commander and follow the steps for installing without adb commands.

Hey..

Pity, it doesn't work for me.

I did it with the Root Explorer. Installation suceeded but i get a "force close" error message, when i try to select a program from the list or to go to "my downloads".

Changing back to the old one without problems.

my device:
G1 white
Android FroYo (CM 6.1)

Country: Austria

Cheers!
