5) Reboot your phone
6) Start Play Store and grant the access. You'll be asked to do so
7) Enjoy!

There is no more vending.apk in my /system/app/ after I deleted it the first round.

Edit: there is a com.android.vending-2.apk in my /data/app/ though. Not too sure why it's there, but I reinstalled the original .16 backup I had.

I tried a slightly different approach that worked for me. I moved the Vending.apk to a temp folder using Root Explorer. Tried to install new apk file and it failed. Rebooted device and tried the reinstall. Worked perfect.

EDIT: Worked until I tried to update an app. FC on me so ended up going back to previous version via rom backup :-\

I can't get rid of the vending.apk that's in my system/app folder (rooted G-note) so I can install the new mod version. I want the mod version because my international G-note won't recognize some apps, like omnisketch, that the ATT G-note can get. When I try to install the new mod app, it says "application not installed." So I tried getting rid of the old vending.apk but unable. I tried moving it to another folder... won't move, tried deleting it, won't delete, tried renaming it, won't rename. It's really locked in that folder. Can't find it in Titanium to freeze it or delete it. Can't find it when I connect via USB to computer to try dragging it to trash. Anybody got any suggestions?

glad I wasn't able to install it... it's in the wrong language. I did find Omnisketch on a Taiwan site and it installs and runs fine on my G-note, but won't find it in the playstore on the phone, but does on the computer and says it's incompatible with all my devices. But at least I have it now.
