    Is anyone else having an issue with the new google marketplace? When I go into the marketplace under "my apps" it tells me that I have a bunch of apps to update even though they have already been updated and are running the latest release. I noticed this started with the new google market....is anyone else having this issue and is there something I can do to fix it?

    When I go to "my apps" it only shows 3 apps, not all of them. So I just hope that my apps are actually updating automatically like I selected.
    This new market sucks, it's slow and not user friendly.

    It shows all my apps, but I have to agree it's a visual mess. It's almost like they're trying to be too clever by half.

    The search function works great you get a list, but the graphic home screen sucks.

    I uninstalled the update to go back to the old market, and within 5 minutes it updated itself again.

    PITA!!!!

    I have to manually go thru my apps and update them, the auto update isn't working.

    You can uninstall the new market, but it will reinstall itself within minutes.

    I installed the new radio fix, so I had to reinstall Liberty 0.9, which has the old market. That issue you're talking about is a problem with the old market too. I did a Titanium backup of all my apps just a few hours before and I know everything was up to date, but the market insisted I didn't have the latest updates for around seven apps.

    Worst part is knowing that it's just updating to be compatible with some new tablet or new phone, and has nothing to do with a Droid X. It's like when iTunes needed to keep updating for no real reason like new features/design, etc.

    Also noticed that some amazon marketplace app downloads aren't fully completing, have to restart the phone to see that they had completed and were ready to install.

    I wonder if the Market uses some CRC/MD5 checksum to determine if an installed app is different from the latest one in the market. Backing up/restoring an app could change the checksum (trailing nulls, etc) that don't affect the app, but may change the CRC of the .apk file.

    I am having the same issue. I go to "my apps" and it says I only have 5 apps installed and 1 not installed, but nothing that says update. I am on a non rooted Droid X running Gingerbread. I wondered about my updates because I got a message the other day telling me I had 12 updates available, so yesterday I started looking through the app page and on everyone that said installed, I clicked into to see if they had "update" at top. Sure enough some did. I ended up doing this and found 21 updates so far. Ridiculous. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. I really don't want to factory reset as a fix unless I have to because I have apps that aren't available anymore, or at least I can't find them anymore, like a paid version of Nesoid and Snesoid. Please help.

    My girlfriend's X (different from my ex-girlfriend) only showed 4 apps in the market. I cleared the system cache partition and the market data. I went to the "My Apps" section and it only had 4 apps but then all of a sudden the others popped in. I had to reset my Market preferences as clearing Market data resets settings.

    Anyway, the problem happened again and the previous solution didn't work so I:
    -killed the market app to stop it from running
    -cleared the market app data & cache
    -uninstalled the market update
    -cleared the system cache partition

    And the apps came back...so basically a shotgun approach/trying every trick in the book.

    As for apps needing an update even though they've just been updated, that's not just a problem on the X. I've seen it on the Droid and Droid 3. New market app needs work.

    How do I clear the system cache partition on the droid X? Nevermind, I found it. Should have remembered this from when I had a rooted droid x before gingerbread. oh well. thanks again and will let you know if this fixes my marketplace issue.

    If you are using Market 3.0.27, you might want to manually update to Market 3.1.3.

    If you Google "Market 3.1.3", you will find a number of Android forums that carry this .apk file.
    I suspect this version will become available to our phones as a regular Market update, but no telling when...
    I'm quite happy with it.
