    I still can't use the Market. When I clicked the Market there is a second white screen and then straight go to the menu. What should I do? I got my phone with 2.1 on it. Anyone? I've cleared cache too. :rolleyes:

    1) Sorry if it is an obvious question, but where do I get the Vending.apk for X10i (not mini) for 2.0.2.A.0.24 ?

    2) As I said on (1) I made the mistake of upgrade to 2.0.2.A.0.24 on the hope that it would install Android Market on upgrade. It happened before I read this tread. Will the procedure work if I use SuperOneClick to root the device ? Other forum said that this aplication can root the 2.0.2.A.0.24

    3) Any special care I need to take now that I am with 2.0.2.A.0.24 ?

    Hi It worked for me too... Thanks.
    But, I got stucked in step 5, I cannot download the file. Then I downloaded it to my PC and copied to SD card,
    Then downloaded SlideMe market place and installed file manager from that. then browse SD card and installed UniversalAndroot.

    i have xperia x10 mini pro android version 2.1.1.A.0.6
    z4root didnt work so i used superoneclick and it said it was rooted but AndRootFile always lags after i say ok to use su command .
    i dont think it is really rooted cuz i still cant copy vending to system.
    any ideas??
    EDIT : problem solved :D
    if u have build 2.1.1.A.0.6
    just use superoneclick instead of z4root which can be found here

    and use root explorer instead of AndRootFile which can be found here

    and thanks for crazydip for his incredible guide

    I had already installed the latest 2.1 update, so was having a heck of a time rooting... I know, I know... but I saw your warning way too late! :(

    HOWEVER! I found one that works!
    I used SuperOneClick here, and it worked like a charm: [APP]SuperOneClick v1.6.5 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers
    Watch the video tutorial - the instructions make more sense after that.

    Good luck, everyone! :)

    Thanks Crazydip. I have to say that after all the tries from different resources only your post I have had success with. Have a X10Mini with latest Android version. Below are the steps I did to finally get android market working.

    1) Backup data (Using restore or backup app)
    2) Download EZ file manager from Slideme (You need a file copier to copy Vending.apk to the Root folder)
    3) Download and run Superoneclick (I used v1.6.5) in administrator mode
    4) Connect the phone with USB Debugging mode
    5) Copy vending.apk to Phone card
    6) Use Superoneclick to root Phone
    7) Using File manager move Vending.apk to /system/app/ (Here where they will ask for root permission.)
    8) Run the vending.apk from /system/app/. Should install without any problems
    9) Use Superoneclick again to unroot your phone.
    10) Remove cable and uncheck USB debugging mode
    11) Turn of phone and turn it on again.
    At this point when you check in apps you should see the AM. But I had a problem here where android market starts but then closes with an error. I did a hard reset, which involved using companion suite to repair/update the phone. This unfortunalty deletes everything and you will have restore from the back up in step 1. Waiting for the update to finish and crossing my fingers it worked. Now a happy camper with android market. :)

    Thanks again
