I do not like the new Google play store. I deleted it and reinstalled the previous version but somehow it just auto updates itself. Anyone know a way to stop it from auto updating?

I think there is a market updater app that you can freeze with Titanium. I am fairly sure that I did that on Gingerbread

Thanks for the answer! Unfortunately I forgot why I didn't want the app to auto update itself. I must have had a reason, lol!

Because if you have a style theme running, (TBO BlackKat or Infamous dark theme donate version) the new Play Store will crash when you open it.

Thanks! I'm glad you posted this. I've been having trouble with the recent Play Store updates (v5.10.30, the one before it, and the one after it I got from APK mirror), so I created the folder, and uninstalled all the updates, and so far it hasn't reinstalled the recent version.
