    That wont work. Seems there is no way currently to clear that history unless you root the device and use a cache cleaner for rooted devices.

    At this time, there is no way to clear your market search results. The market dev team is aware of it and it is being addressed, however when it gets corrected is anyones guess.

    Happy to report that there is a way to clear market history
    Download "cashemate" from the market install hit the menue button go to settings. Last option is Data click on it, select market history, go back and hit the circle clear, and tada you just cleared the invincible market history.
    One note, you have to be rooted and have SU permissions.
    Enjoy

    Wow you would think this feature would have been built in... I hate searching for apps and all of my previous app searches pop up as if I am trying to search for one of those, which I never am lol.

    yeah I did this last night and it didn't work, yes I am rooted via DroidMod 1.0. I did have the demo though not sure if that matters. It says all cache cleared and market was selected but its all still there, any help? Do I have to buy the full version?

    On the bottom of the phone, tap the bars for the Search/notifications/add/wallpaper/SETTINGS .... click on the SETTINGS.... Then scroll down to SEARCH... Then, CLEAR SEARCH SHORTCUTS.

    That worked for me.... (after working for hours trying to figure it out).

    I'm still having trouble with the HI YAHOO... I just don't like not being able to stay on messenger when you receive a call. (I'm using the meebo app, which disconnects you every time you get a call). Anyone having luck with using the HI YAHOO?

    You would think they would give you a bigger book with the droid, to show you how to do things. I know we use to get them with other phones. Mine came with a little pamphlet that only shows the basics... STILL Not enough to figure it out..LOL

    Go to the market and download "History Eraser". It works great and you don't have to root.
