    Ok, so my wife went on her market on her Incredible, and she has the new market. Her phone is stock. My OG Droid, rooted with BB v05, still has the old market. Was there an update? Anyone else have the new or old market?

    Just wondering.....

    It's not a document. After you download, change the .doc extension to .apk and use a file explorer like Astro to install it.

    Ok, downloaded it, renamed it to android_market.apk and used Astro to install it. It says : uninstall, upgrade, launch.....ht upgrade, install......then says application not installed. Should it just install or do I need to do anything else?

    Try using root explorer to install it.

    I've also tried several methods such as update.zip, root explorer, upgrade. All gave me force close :S

    Here's a great thread for some themed markets that work well
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/te...05022-who-going-re-revisited-vending-apk.html

    Now how to get it working. I tried a couple ways first and ended up with force closes all the time, the bad thing is if you've tried ways besides the way I'm going to tell you you may have to restore a backup you've made because after I got the fc's I could not get my market back to normal no matter what, however give this a try. First clear data and cache from market, next uninstall whatever market you're using with titanium backup. Finally boot into recovery and install whichever market.zip you downloaded with the zip installer. I had to restore a backup, then when I followed this method it worked fine, I've followed that order and installed a couple different market themes and it's worked fine each time.

    Did you use this to install a market theme or install the updated market itself? I'm trying to install the updated market.
