    Alright I Just Downloaded Android 2.3 on my Droid X and all of a sudden Market is no longer there. Is this a problem with anyone else? Is there any way i can get market back WITHOUT HARD RESET OR REPLACING MY PHONE? If anyone knows help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You.

    I am sure you mean Android 2.2

    Let me get this straight, you received the Android 2.2 over the air update, and after the install and reboot your Market does not seem to be installed anymore...correct ?

    I too just updated my rooted Droid-X from 2.1 to 2.3.15 and had the same problem.

    If you have Astro file viewer then I have a solution for you;

    Open astro, then click the up icon (Yellow Folder with green up arrow) till you get to the lowest level.
    Then click the search icon and search for vending.apk, that's the real name for the Market app.
    Click on the file name and you should be presented with the option to install it.

    I had to delete my original shortcut as it no longer properly associated with the file, but it's easy enough
    to make another one.

    Also, if market crashes and "Forces Close" just re-open it and you should be good.

    Frustrating problem, I hope this helps some folks.

    That worked great but....

    keeps popping up "Sorry" message that Market stopped unexpectedly. Or starts the download and then freezes.
