    Greetings everyone, I rooted my moment today. After that i tired to load the market and I am getting an error msgs that says A sever error has occurred. Retry or cancel and return to the previous screen.

    Any ideas? I have seen some posts on a google site saying this might be related to google checkout, however everything there is current.


    Thank you


    David

    Here's a fix:

    1. Create a dummy gmail account on your phone. This is in addition to the current gmail account that you are syncing with.

    2. Once dummy account creation is done, fire up the market. If it doesn't crash, the fix is working.

    3. Make sure you can see your paid apps. If they are visible and says "Purchased", market fix is complete.

    4. You may delete the dummy account now.

    I had the exact issue and the above fix took care of it.

    Try going to MENU-Settings-Applications-Manage applications. MENU-Filter-All. Find Market and delete data.
