    Okay, so I am sure a lot of you are familiar with the fact that the Android Market app was recently updated to a version .2007 that includes some Android 2.2 features. The old version was version .1712 or .1713.

    Well, I was getting tired of waiting for the updated version .2007 Android Market app, and I had read somewhere that if I uninstalled updates to my existing Android Market app, it would force the update to install. So, I went into the Manage Applications, found the Android Market app, cleared the cache, and uninstalled the update from .1713 back to .1712. I have not seen any adverse effects from doing this yet, but I still have not gotten the update to version .2007. I suppose at this point, my only choice is to sideload the updated Android Market .apk file?

    Well, I am bumping this now because I am still stuck on version .1712. I suppose I have no chance to get back to even version .1713, let alone version .2007 now through an OTA update?

    I wonder why my Sprint HTC Hero never received the Android Market app update in the first place. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Okay, so about two weeks ago I uninstalled the updates for my Android Market app like I described in my above posts. It went from version .1713 to version .1712 and stayed that way for a while. :)

    I just noticed today that it is back up to version .1713 again, but still not version .2007. Please, does anyone have any ideas on how to get the latest Android Market app update OTA? :(

    Seriously, no one has any ideas? I would really love the Android 2.2 Android Market features on my stock ROM. :)

    Can someone reply just to make me feel less like I am talking to myself like a crazy person? Haha. :(
