Yes, I just tried it. It works! and it fixes the button problem in 2.2.6.

I first tried one that did not work, but I've attached the one I did get to work. Just copy into /system/app, rename to Vending.apk, and change permissions.

Enjoy!

Would this work ?

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

Or, you can just download and install it like any other apply. It'll install over the old Market no problem. It Indore you that it's a system apply, but works anyway.

Anyone have the old Market (Vending.apk)? I stupidly replaced it with the above and broke it. Much obliged.

Kept getting error message about cp: not found
Skipped the renaming step and it worked perfect, rejected both drives first and it worked like a charm.
