Instructions


  1. backup original market vending apk
  2. clear cache of the old market (Go /Settings/applications/(remove filter and select all) select market application and press clear cache)
  3. install this application like any other apk using file browser

Note:

  1. My phone is rooted but im not sure rooting is required.
  2. This is only for android 2.1 or above
  3. Once installed open market and press menu/settings/ customized content filtering and notifications as preferred.
  4. Some users have reported that at the time of clearing cache, market was automatically update to 2.2.7. if your one of those lucky users,:D this installation is not required
  5. Even this is posted on X10 forum, any 2.1 android can have this update.:p

If you face any errors or fc after installation follow this method and see if its resolved. (only for the 2.1 version which already market available)


  1. Go /Settings/applications/(remove filter and select all) select market application/ select clear cache
  2. Go /Settings/applications/(remove filter and select all) select market application/ select uninstall update
  3. Open Market and see if its auto updated. (because now market update is already rolled out to all the 2.1 users) if not redo the step 1 and go for step 4
  4. install the new version on this post
  5. Sign in to talk and open market.



Update:20.02.2011
New version 2.3.2 for Custom Rom users......


Install this via Xrecovery for the latest 2.3.2 version

Download: LINK

Note: before installation login to the market at least once from the original rom of the developer and update this. read the instuctions from the custom rom developer well otherwise you will get endless FC of the market app.


currently tested and working on 2.2.1 beta4, CM mod roms all 6.1.xxx



Cheers

Guys,

I like to check if I do it the below method, will there be any problem?

1) I search for market.apk in System/Apps folder and remove it by using Root Explorer

2) I copy and paste the New Market file into System/Apps folder

3) I reboot the phone but the New Market did not install and still load the old Market

4) I went into System/Apps using Root Explorer and click to install

5) I click on the Market Icon and it manage to load the New Market


Anyone can advise me accordingly, thanks.

You dont need to play with root system directory. this will install on top of stock market as an update. (if you followed the method I mentioned. when you dont want it simply click uninstall update.

This kind of behavior you will find in google maps, stock facebook application.

hope this is clear for you.

If your not going to be constructive or contribute in a positive manner
It was constructive, it was pointing out that there are numerous threads on the subject, all of which has the apk which someone uploaded.
did it occur to you, you could've reported the thread and let the moderating team deal with it
Like I did with with the others when the 3rd popped up, I guess you've sorted them now you've been on, and as you been on I guess you've also finally got around to making the Z4Root thread a sticky, nope, I guess you'll get to it one day. :rolleyes:
