    Latest Froyo Build made my Marketplace practically unusable

    Installed the latest stock Froyo build the other day, works fantastic except for this one issue.

    I installed the fix update.zip which made my premium apps appear such as TapaTalk Pro etc and I've also tried clearing my cache.

    The Marketplace is so damned unbearably slow that it is practically useless and if anyone has any ideas I would love to get some help. Doing a search brings up the above fixes from the older builds but they aren't fixing this horrific speed issue. Every time I try to go into something I am presented with a white 'loading' screen that sits for about 1-2 minutes, from selecting, to installing to OK'ing the install this happens. It's excruciating.

    Thanks.

    Mine was very slow when I installed the rooted "more froyo".

    It was still slow when I installed the market fix.

    It was still slow when I installed SS4.1 and then the market didn't work for a bunch of people one evening for 30 minutes or so. The next morning it was as fast as it was before. I assumed they fixed something in the market. It wasn't slow until I moved from sg6.0 to froyo. It is not slow now but I did nothing on my end to fix it.

    You have a backup? Make one now, roll back, see if its still slow. Flash back to what you are using now and see if it is still slow. Try a couple other roms. Wish I had something more specific for you other than "it shouldn't be that way for you"

    When I went to ss4.12 I did not install any market update/fix, btw.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I noticed this too on the FRF84B release, I flashed petes BBv0.4 two days ago and it wouldnt install anything! I let it sync over night and when I woke up 5 apps had been synced and another 5 were in the "installing" state for hours, I didnt have time to mess with it so I flashed my Kangerade backup

    I didn't have this problem with BB 0.1 however I have been on this new stock Froyo for a couple days now and I don't know what the factor is between the two causing the difference of working and not.

    Market works perfectly with Pete's BB 0.4 Froyo FRF84B. Using CM Recovery I formatted system, data, cache, and boot 3 times each and installed the rom. I let the phone sit about 30 minutes after booting and all my paid and free apps restored automatically. Set up my screens and made LauncherPro the default and all is perfect.

    I also had the slow/unusable market with both BB 0.4 and the latest clean froyo build. And it wasn't from syncing - it was slow days later after all syncing was completed. I'm back on 1.1 for now.

    Yeah, see everything synced fine...The phone has sat and sat, nothing helps. It is really weird that even 3 days later the Marketplace is still acting this way for me.

    I may pop BB 0.4 on later.

    My plan was to go to stock in preparation for handing my Droid over to my wife since I'll be getting a Droid X on the 15th and I just wanted a stable working Froyo ROM on it. I really didn't want to shove a custom ROM on there and have her find any issues - I don't feel like having to 'fix' any problems daily especially since she is coming from a Berry. :P

    If the Marketplace is going to be pulling this BS though it isn't going to fly. heh.
