    Been there a couple of times. Its a pain, but don't worry about it until its like that 3-4 days. The first time it lasted about 2.5 days. Last time it lasted about the same. It is almost like it is struggling to get sync'd up or something but then one morning it was just as fast as ever.

    I have not applied the market fix. I did the previous time. The fix will make your phone appear as a 2.1 android phone to the market instead of a 2.2 phone. That is not causing the slowness. The fix is so certain apps show up again for you. I also know someone who had terrible luck with Pandora on 2.2 so used the fix to get a 2.1 version. This was a week or so ago though so for all I know Pandora has fixed their issue for 2.2 phones.

    I'd recommend sticking with your rom, but reinstalling it without the market fix unless there was some other reason you applied that fix.

    Save this thread, when it gets faster, let us know

    hang in there!

    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.

    For the record, I've also noticed the same thing. Wait it out, and it should fix itself.

    I've done this before and it doesn't make a difference. Also, clearing the market data screws up all of your downloads.

    This happens to me whenever I switch roms, and it always takes a few days to speed up. I have no idea why. My wife also has a droid and she does not have this problem. I have a ton of apps, so I'm guessing that may have something to do with it, but I don't know. It really is strange.

    I've experienced slowness when accessing the market for quite sometime. Two days ago, I cleared the cache and noticed quicker access. Today, however, the slowness has returned.

    I don't believe it - after MONTHS of suffering from this problem after switching roms, I finally found a fix. Here it is:

    xda-developers - View Single Post - [FIX] Slow market on froyo (SocketTimeoutException)

    Just replace your vending file with the one in this post and voila, the market is fast again (at least it is in my case).
