    Same here. I do not like the new market at all.

    I did a factory reset, and nine is back to the old market. Not sure how long before it comes back.

    Its not that I dont like it... but it keeps force closing on me... plus the old one was easier to use.. less content. So now I am just looking for a way to get it back but there is nothing I can find about getting it done.

    A factory reset should do the trick, but it'll eventually just update itself again unless you can find some way to block it from updating (perhaps if you root they'll be a solution for you?).

    Yeah I think there's a bloat process you can freeze to stop all updating. I know it stops OTA updates, so I can only assume it or another process is capable of freezing market updates. However I don't know if it freezes ALL updates, even for apps.

    I'm not sure if this will work, but you could try going into manage applications and use the uninstall updates option for the market.

    I don't think you can uninstall the new market in applications. But if you are rooted and have the old market rename it to MarketUpdater.apk.bak and it should keep it from changing to the new one.

    Lol! Sure you can, unless the new market app was pre-loaded on your phone.

    Mine went back to 2.3.6, but I've since reinstalled the new Market. No sense in not getting used to it.

    I hate the new market too. I just uninstalled updates in manage applications. I hope they (Droid) realize how many people don't like the new version and go back to the old one.
