    I'm not sure, I did some reading. I am a complete illiterate when it comes to these android phones. I'm aware of what rooting is, and flashing roms and stuff..

    But i wouldn't know how to do it. haha. I've tried just about everything I could.
    I downloaded an APK vending file, That didnt work. I tried installing APP BRAIN, that obviously didn't work.

    I don't want to root my phone or install a 2.1 rom on it, because I'd void the warranty.

    I am going to speak to Motorola tomorrow, and hopefully they can help.

    Sorry.

    :(

    And yes, if anyone knows how to fix this, or has any better ideas. I'd(we) would appreciate it a lot.

    I'm not saying it was done on purpose, but does anyone know if it's possible to actually accidentally uninstall the marketplace?

    Either way, I'm not sure how to replace specific apps/files without a factory reset.

    I just spoke with tech support from Motorola. They told me to do a factory reset, which i'm doing now. I will let you know if I get the market back.

    Same here! I actually did it earlier and saved our conversation and was about to attach it. TO ANY FUTURE READERS FACTOY RESET WILL RESOLVE THIS ISSUE!

    It usually fixes most anything. Except dead pixels. And low ring tone volume.

    So my father's dX also lost the market app when he upgraded to 2.2 - he didn't want to deal with a factory reset and I'm traveling so I can't stop by and put the file in. What to do?

    Write a script that does the work for him - which appears to have worked just fine.

    If anyone else is interested, I'll put an instruction file in the package and upload it to a file-server.

    (For the geeks - I just put all the required items in one place, then wrote a quick script that does the adb push so all the user needs to do is press enter).

    Put this together into a little package, hopefully this helps someone else who has the same problem - worked for my fathers device which had the same problem.

    Download, unzip, read the instructions, run the little script.

    I used your script and it successfully loaded the Market back on the phone... but now... when trying to update apps, the market either crashes, or just doesn't download anything (stuck on "starting download")

    Hello all,

    First post here but needed to let those having issues know what worked for me (DROID X recently over the air update to Froyo 2.2, which killed my android market). I will say I am phone newbie and was still able to do this in <15 minutes. I found the fix here:
    (Android Market app disappeared on Samsung Galaxy S 2.2 update - Android Market Help)

    I will copy and paste for ease, and all credit goes to tomarppe. IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure to follow the directions, regardless, on clearing old data at the bottom of this step-by-step guide to prevent force quits. Also I needed to POWER PHONE OFF AND THEN BACK ON after clearing data for new downloads and updates to work.

    "To get the Marked app back, without doing a hard reset.

    Install a file manager like.Estrongs or Astro
    To make it less complicated load the Estrongs from here: Downloading the file 1284764910_EStrongs_File_Explorer_1.4.5.apk ...
    transfer it with e.g. bluetooth or USB to your phone and install.

    After installing the FIle manager.

    1. Go to internal memory root
    2. navigate to /system/app
    3. Locate Vending.apk
    4. push on it to install it

    It may force close the first time you run it but the second time it should work

    If you still encounter Force Close or download issues. Do the following ( you might want to do it anyway as it is sometimes better to start with a clean slate)

    1. Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications
    2. Chose All
    3. Find Market
    4. Push on it and select Clear data

    Now it should work as advertised"

    WOW thanks for this post. I just fixed this on my Evo 4g which had the exact same symptom of the market icon just going missing. Small note is that my initial launching of "Market" after clearing of data was giving me the Terms of Service and then crashing. I went back to step 4 and selected Clear data and then turned phone off and on again. Launched Market, oked Terms and it all loaded GREAT.

    used ASTRO file manager

    1. Opened ASTRO, clicked Up
    2. navigate to /system/app
    3. Locate Vending.apk
    4. push on it to install it, clicked ok etc

    Now back on home screen, follow what is suggested about a clean slate ...

    1. Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications
    2. Chose All
    3. Find Market
    4. Push on it and select Clear data
    5. go back to main home screen, turn your phone off and back on

    Now it should work as advertised

    thanks!

    Evo 4G on 2.2 w/ sprint 3.26.651.6
