    I did a revert back to stock android from droidmod and now when I go into the market and click on an app, it takes at least 45 seconds to load the app info and then another 45 sections before the screen where it shows you what the app accesses. Also when I click apps and go to a certain category. At the top only top free and just in show up, no top paid. Does anyone know anything I can do to fix this?

    mine just started doing this i figured maybe because it is self updating itself. i know there is a market update and it just runs itself without any permission im not saying this is why but maybe its why???

    sometimes the market itself is just slow. I have noticed when flashing different ROM that I would have trouble with the market for 45 minutes or so. It would take forever for the market to open and if I clicked on any app it would take forever for the info to open up. But like I said it would usually clear up after 45 minutes or so.

    Yes! Same issue here

    I thought it was the "I drum naked" rom from chaos cause it just started slowing down when I installed it. Then I tried a UD rom and still had the problem so I thought it was my wifi. But now I'm on cyan on a different wifi/internet connection and its still slow! Been going on for about a week now and its extremely irritating.

    I think its an issue on googles side

    Might be worth noting I'm in poland on business at the moment

    It happens on a fairly frequent but unpredictable basis. Nothing to worry about. My assumption has been maintenance or demand on the servers.

    Maintanance, maybe. Server load, definitely not. Not for google.

    Maybe a database issue

    whatever it is, A week of this is pretty redic. And 45 seconds to load each screen can be an under estimate at times.

    Anyways google, please fix. Ive been slacking on app updates because its become a chore with the wait times

    I'm wondering if it is as simple as that. Are any of you still having this problem. It seems like ever since I dropped my phone the other day it has been doing this on the market. I didn't really take notice until yesterday though because I updated to cm 5.0.6.2. Thing is though I don't ever remember having this problem before I dropped my phone on the sidewalk.

    When I got my new phone it was running very slow once again, I restarted my phone, battery pull and when I went back into the market it was working good. So I would recommend trying a battery pull.

    Just because breakfast comes before lunch, it doesn't mean breakfast causes lunch. The Market has slowed down more frequently in recent weeks. Considering that Verizon sold 100,000 Incredibles in the first two days of sales and that the only factor limiting sales at the moment is supply, I strongly suspect that the behavior is related to demands on the Google servers.

    When I wait for five minutes or more waiting for a download/update, I usually just cancel the download and try again. Often it helps; sometimes not. Hard to say if I simply waited I'd get the app at about the same time.

    Simple solution that helped for me on several phones.

    • Exit all applications.
    • Go to Settings => Accounts & Sync => Uncheck Background Data and confirm
    • Quit all screens with back button
    • Start Market => You will receive a message that Market can't run without Background Data => click Activate => Enable Background Data and click the back button
    • Now test Market again
    Enjoy!

    I notice this every day with the new market, it takes atleast 15-45 seconds to load. I dont notice it that much with the old market.

    Maybe you can try "Market History Manager" from "Azrael".
    Can be found on "Market".
    This gives a difference.
