    I've found pushing many of the core apps and g-apps results in a bunch of FC's.
    I think you got it right, thebowers. Using as update.zip works best. Data won't be erased or overwritten.

    Found that out the hardway myself.

    Can someone post this up as an update.zip for those of us on the go?

    I was finally to put this into an update.zip and run it through CW recovery, installed clean but still got two force closes after installing/updating a new app, or moving an app to the SD card

    It looks great though, I uninstalled until the force close is fixed :(

    Did you use SPR or CW to install?

    Can you can post your update.zip, it might be my zip file that is causing the problems

    I used CW and put the apk in with a custom theme zip I can give you the whole theme link if you want.

    Side note.... only thing I've noticed is when posting a comment the txt doesn't show up unless selected. Might be my theme might not be lol

    Ya I used tapatalk...

    I did basically the same thing, used CW and put the .apk in a update.zip I have used successfully for other .apk's and I got the FC thing, I appreciate the offer but I guess I will just wait it out.

    The last ROM I was on did that FC thing and I dealt with it for weeks, if I was trying to update multiple apps from the Market I would have to hurry up and choose update on one before the other got done installing and the whole thing Force Closed and I had to start over again

    Just moved to SS 4.7 and that issue has disappeared, and I don't want to see it again anytime soon.

    It does look amazing though

    BlackMarket.zip

    tparker here is the file in an update.zip. I used this in CW just fine. Check your data part in market under manage applications. Make sure there is something there. If you pushed any version of vending to your phone before it may not work. I did that and had to reflash the rom, let the market do it's install of my apps. Then I did the update.zip.

    Alright, I tried flashing my update.zip, and thebowers, your update.zip, I even took the .apk and put it in the ROM.zip and reflashed the entire ROM (without wiping) and I still get force closes...the next thing will be to wipe and flash the entire ROM again, I will try that later today and post back with the results

    You can't put the .apk in a rom to flash (at least from what I have gathered). Load the rom from scratch, let the default market get your apps and install them. Then boot into recovery and flash the blackmarket. This is the way it worked for me.

    I'm still having problems as well with the FC's. I've loaded a new ROM with the old Vending.apk and then I installed the BlackMarket using CW. Still receiving FC errors. I think I'm going to give up for the time being... HA!

    Bowers - One note, the buttons on your second screen shot in the first post don't look like the buttons in the actual app. I like the ones in the screen shot better. :)

    Here is what I did...and it worked (thanks B) I booted into recovery, wiped data and cache, loaded SS 4.7 (untouched) and let it boot up, went right back into recovery and flashed blackmarket.zip and rebooted...it worked beautifully, untill I NinjaMorphed a few.png's, (the launcher and bag icons to be specific) then I got the F/C again, so I restored my backup

    So it does work and here is my plan for the weekend, since I have made so many changes to the SS framework-res and the system/app.apk's already (mostly.png's)...I bring my theme with me everywhere I go ;)

    I am going to take the original SS update.zip and remove the framework-res.apk and put in my themed SS framework-res then do the same with the system/app folder in the SS update.zip, and leave the original Vending.apk untouched, wipe data/cache and install my modified SS, then on my computer change the .png's within the blackmarket (using 7zip) and then flash it as an update.zip

    In my mind this is foolproof, I will post back with the results
