For those of you who got the Market working, there is a Market update that is getting released. I installed it on my HTC HD2, but the same file would not work on the Nook. I did some searching and found one that works on the Galaxy Tab w/stock Eclair. It works on the NC!!

Requirement: You MUST have a working market. Follow this thread or this thread for more excellent info (and work) on enabling the Market.

Simply replace the Vending.apk in /system/app/ with this file (rename it Vending.apk first), reboot, and you are good to go! I would recommend backing up the original Vending.apk so that you can replace it if anything should go wrong for you.

You can use Root Explorer with /system/app in r/w mode, but it is simple to do via adb as well:

adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb shell mv /system/app/Vending.apk /system/app/oldVending.apk
adb push Vending.apk /system/app
adb reboot

**If you have problems, simply delete the Vending.apk, and replace it with the oldVending.apk

There is a newer version of the Market posted by devis and Xhorder in this post. Please use it instead. It fixes the weird star artifacts of this version. Instructions are exactly the same.

DO NOT simply click it to install. If it happened to work for you that way, you were lucky. You really should replace the Vending.apk with this file. Also, I saw one user report that the search function didn't allow Market searches. I believe they are the only one with that issue, and I'm not sure how they installed this. I assume they did not follow instructions, as my guide backs up the original file, and the person with the issue is asking for the orig apk. So, YMMV, but follow this instructions, and you should be fine.

Very nice!
I actually found that the new market apk you provided installs fine as an update (no replacement of /system/app/Vending.apk needed). I opted for that as the safer option.

Thanks again!

Thumbs up
Works very well! Very nice interface.

One issue: The "OK" and "Update" buttons are sometimes just slivers at the top of the screen. Doesn't prevent it from working though. You just have to be careful with your clicking.

Adding: This version doesn't have the problem of not listing all of the apps when you're in portrait mode. It simply works. And when you tell it to install/update an app, it does it RIGHT FRIGGIN' NOW and I mean Fassssst!

Thanks! Works great.

One question - Is there any way to get the fingerprint from the tab w/eclair? This would potentially give us access to some tablet-specific apps, like WSJ...

Awesome! I was hoping the script would get updated to include this.

FYI: Those considering updating to this version, it puts buttons up top where you can barely press them for confirmations.


EDIT: as mentioned by johnopsec above post

I just did a search for Zeam in the Market and it came up fine for me. So does pinball.
