    If so, please extract the .apk from your phone's data/app directory. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Open Terminal or an ADB Shell
    2. Type 'su'
    3. Type 'chmod 777 data'
    4. Type 'chmod 777 data/app'
    5. Use your favorite file manager to copy the 'Vending.apk' file over to your SD card for easy retrieval
    6. Upload it!

    Thanks!

    :D

    It allows automatic updating and the ability to update all apps with the press of a single button.

    Go to your downloads list, choose an app (that's already installed), and then check "Allow Automatic Updating."

    So it's safe to install this Market update manually using the file listed above?

    "The file you are trying to access is temporarily unavailable." on the link from above. Anyone else have it to download because the commands didn't do anything for me.

    Thanks
