    I have been running Tainted Vanilla and was going to try Ivan's Eris_Official Rom. but when I installed it there are some apps missing from the market that I have paid for ( ie. Age of Conquest Europe, Africa, Asia ). I have installed the market fix and this has made no difference.
    I have looked in /system/app but did not see the apps listed in there
    I have also looked at backing it up with astro but it is listed as private
    So i wanted to see if I could just pull the APK from adb or if there is some thing I have done wrong.

    Any help would be cool Thanks

    Well, if it is not installed on the phone, you won't find it by poking around with a file explorer.

    Unless what you mean is that you have a Nandroid backup of the older ROM, and you are going to restore that ROM in order to find it.

    In that case, the .apk should be in /data/app or /data/app-private. I believe that Astro is not root-aware, so you are going to have to grab it some other way: either use Root Explorer (paid app), or learn how to use adb.

    e.g.

    adb shell ls /data/app
    adb pull /data/app/foobar.apk foobar.apk
    adb install foobar.apk
