    My problem is what the header says.
    I just installed Froyo in Kies. Everything went smoothly and the phone seems to work like a charm after installation. The only thing weird but not bad was that all the applications were in different order.
    BUT the first bad thing I noticed was that the Android Market application was gone! Is this normal? Can I get it back somehow?

    To get the Marked app back, without doing a hard reset. You need a filemanager (like Estrongs or Astro)
    Go to /system/app and install Vending.apk
    It may force close the first time you run it, but after that its good to go!

    Awesome idea... I've been searching for a way to fix the missing market app without doing a reset. I have the Linda File Manager app and I found the vending.apk file right where you said in /system/app. I tried installing it through the file manager, it gives the normal install warning then tries to install but gives an error saying "application not installed".

    Any other ideas? I do NOT want to do a hard reset. :thinking:

    Had same problem here. Used AppInstaller (which I found somewhere last week) - and installed /system/vending.apk.
    Market crashed first time, but now it runs gracefully.
