    So I watched a video of the new Market on Android and the guy said that you could download the new market now via -

    New Android Market Walkthrough (Video)

    And i went to the APK link they had there but I don't know what to do from there. I went to it on my iMac, should I have gone to it on my phone or just how do I download it? Help, please.

    Hi Kuzdroid. I have an iMac too. Here's what you do: Mount your phone to your imac. Drop the .apk file on the SD card. I'm assuming here that you have a file manager like Astro or Linda. Use that to install the file. It's very easy.

    if you DL the .apk from the computer, just move it to the phones SD card. or you can just DL form the phone and skip that step.

    find the .apk on your phone,
    click on it, and install it.
    and enjoy.
    i thought you may have to get it in the system/app folder but according to Droid-life, you just have to follow the steps above. will be downloading it now and giving it a shot.

    No problems here. I copied it to my download file /Under sdcard because that was where I saw the apk files. Looking at the other posts it doesn't seem to matter where you put it as long as it is on the card which is good to know. Just easier for me to find from Astro....Like the new look..

    I copied it to my SD card and opened it with Astro but it keeps telling me it failed to install. What am I missing? I'm on the original Droid.

    Are you rooted? I read somewhere else that if you're rooted there can be problems.
