[Q] Preventing Market from detecting newer version of app

Search This thread


Jun 30, 2010
Is it possible to exclude an application from the Market update list?
I've installed the last "good" last.fm client (a patched 1.6x) that allows streaming, and intend to keep this version since newer versions from market have removed the ability to stream music in sweden (however it's not blocking the servers, so older versions work).
So is it possible to fool Market to not get info on newer versions of an app?
The main reason I want this is to be able to still use the Update all button, and not have to worry about accidently upgrading the last.fm app.

Thanks for any pointers!

Titanium Backup can do this, long press on the app name and select "Detach From Market". Eventually the app seems to come back though and you have to do it again but I haven't seen it happen often.

Being unrooted I don't think there's a way you can do it. Perhaps you can do a temp root and run Titanium Backup and just temp root on boot.

Other then that, I don't think you can. Sorry.
