    Market place replaced with play stor

    Quick question. My marketplace app was updated to google play store today. It seems to be the same thing so no big deal until I clicked on the market icon at the top right corner of the menu screen and get a message that says application not installed. Is the any way to get the new play store to work with this or to get the old market place back so it works. I kind of liked that feature. Fyi phone is not rooted. Thanks in advance

    Android Market Icon

    I have been messing with that icon for quite sometime, trying to switch it over to google play & trying to delete it. The last thing I need is another useless app icon that I can't uninstall. Flashing appears to be the only answer.

    Thanks for the reply.I'm new to this stuff does flashing require root? I'm kind of hesitant of that.

    right corner market icon now pulls up google play

    Not sure if you still need help, but here's what I did that works:
    go to settings, then to apps, then app management, then all, scroll to google play, tap it, then hit uninstall, from there just close it out. Now you should have android market back. At some point within 24 hours when you try to get into the market it will prompt you to install google play, once reinstalled the market icon in app drawertakes you to google play

    I'm sort of curious about how they fixed this without Motorola's intervention.

    My guess is they simply renamed the actual app back to what it was when it was still "Market"
