After doing some research to fix the troubles I had with the market in this thread.. I have found that I was using WiFi most of the time to download from the market.
Perhaps something else fixed it... or maybe it will break again soon, but for now, I have fixed the issue by opening port 5228 - TCP only.
I honestly believe the real fix is something else, because I was having trouble downloading apps as 3G as well. But things are going smooth since I did that.
Port forwarding is not hard to do but it isn't for the novice computer user.
If you know what you're doing, it will only take a minute!
Within your router settings make these changes:
Single port forward port 5228 - 5228 TCP Only (UDP unnecessary) to your internal IP.
Incase you've never had to find your Android's internal IP before,,, single port forwarding will require your phones local (internal) IP address (as opposed to the external IP. To find it on a Motorola Droid simply:
HOME > MENU > SETTINGS > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi Settings > MENU AGAIN > Advanced (right button) >
You rinternal IP address will be listed right underneath MAC address.
Even if this isn't a fix.. it might be useful to someone else having market issues.
No links provided, although the port number was found on another site.
The port number and other information can be found on Google's Android market help forums (somewhere) among other Droid resources. Possibly even this site, although I missed it if it's on this site.
It has been brought to my attention that I don't meet the requirements to post my dropbox referral link in my signature. Also it's against our forum rules...
So if you're interested, ask me about my Dropbox referral link.
Either way posting it up for people to use is a good idea. In my experience it doesnt work flawlessly frozen or not.
MarketUpdater.apk needed to be disabled (I renamed it to MarketUpdater.apk.bak) on my droid before the market would stop updating. I put the 2.x market in the ROM, replacing the 3.x one Chevy put there, but it kept updating until I disabled MarketUpdater. (So I guess that Chevy didn't freeze it in this version). Billy
