i don't mind to be honest. but the mentioned hack will do that for you.

Hey there French colleague ;)

On my non-rooted N1, market is so slow it is unusable as it stands... Cannot undertand it, it's just a real pain in the ass... The FRF50 leaked Froyo build IS buggy on that but will the upcoming OTA update fix that??

I don't want to root my phone jus for that !

I also tried your *#*#2432546#*#* prompt, but nothing happend, except "checkin succeeded" in the notif bar...

Any other clue ?

i'm not sure /data is writable in non rooted devices, but on rooted ones the following command has to be executed:

Quote:

adb push vending_preferences.xml /data/data/com.android.vending/shared_prefs/

in the directory where you have the correct vending_preferences.xml
i used the attached file from the first page ant tweaked a little bit to make market database refresh after next start (remove .txt from the end of filename).

please note that market shall be closed before this new file is pushed. no phone restart needed.

xml content:
Quote:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes' ?>
<map>
<boolean name="local_db_sync_required" value="true" />
<int name="SERVER_VERSION" value="1000" />

btw i am pretty sure it will fix itself in 1-5 (maybe more) days automatically, but i didn't want to wait...

Thanks for the vending_preferences.xml fix.

A slow market was my only problem with Froyo.

I have the same problem. Seems to be related to my google account. Market works fine when using a different account, only bad thing is that all my paid apps are on my other (slow) account.

Thanks, for the *#*#2432546#*#* code. I made my market loading speed go from 30 seconds plus to now less than 10 seconds load time.

I used titanium backup to move the apps.
