    It will update on its own. As I've seen so far it will update automatically without the need of you having to do anything but just simply using the phone.

    My SE Xperia 8 also has usual android market instead of that play store. The problem is I cannot download or update any apps at the moment. Have no idea what to do. Please, help!

    Try this:

    Main menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Menu Button > Filter > All > Market > Uninstall Updates > Open the Market Application.

    Thanks! Ok, I've done that. Android Market looks slightly different but still cannot download or update apps. Is there any chance I turned off updates/automatic updates for my phone somewhere?

    Don't worry, the Market will update itself to the Play Store.

    Hello there im having a problem on my xperia x8 and it wont update to the play store, its stuck on the factory version of the android market,

    And it wont update any of my android apps but it will install new ones.

    Ive tried downloading the play store online, but when I open the download it sais problem parsing the package.

    I dont want to flash or custom the operating system

    Or brick the phone.

    Thanks in advance
