    Ok, here's my deal...i added the black market update to my DarkSlide and it'll load fine through reboot recovery. When the market comes up its black. Cool!! Then eventually if I leave my phone alone for a short period of time and open the market again.....it's white again!!!! Any ideas what it could be?? Am I not installing it correctly?? Thanks ahead of time!!

    What version does the Market say after you install it. You go into system/applications/manage applications/all and the navigate to market and open. It should be on the top left. If its not 2.2.11, we need to get you that version.

    Don't give up yet. Try one thing for me. Go to the same place I asked you to go

    to check Market version, then clear cache and then data. Don't open Market after

    that. Reinstall the newest version you got again. If that doesn't work I will check

    with JMT and see if he has any suggestions. Are you downloading directly to phone

    or computer?

    Try this file, but still clear Market data/cache>>>

    When I installed mine, I didn't wipe the data or clear cashe ..if you do..that may cause it to reset the market causing an update

    Then you go to settings/applications/manage application san select the "all" tab. Then scroll down to Market and clear the data.

    Try this:
    with Root Explorer go to system/app
    Find vendor.apk
    Rename it to vendor.bak
    Install the zip Chkmate provided

    That should bring back your black market...let me know :)

    When using black market, I always wind up getting updates and free on my apps section. I have removed data and cache several times. It corrects the issue for awhile and then reverts back to my apps getting eliminated or changed back to free. I am tempted to return to the green version. Any suggestions?

    What version is your Market? Needs to be 2.2.11.

    Check it the same way you wipe data/cache, should be at the top left in

    settings/application/manage applications/all tab and Market.

    NB,
    Under my apps in market, the listing doesn't say installed or update-but rather ' free' instead. I also only get a partial listing. When I clear cache & data, it will return to the proper listing for awhile, but then revert back to the above. As noted I have the 2.2.11 version.
