    Hey all, i am running GB CTmod 2.1, and absolutely hate how the new market versions look and how slow it is. I would like to go back to an earlier version of the market(preferably froyo stock). I have another phone with market 2.12, and i found several sites where i can get different older versions, but my question is which one will work and how do i install it? Just go into system/app and remove old and paste new vending.apk or is it more complicated than that?

    Try what you said first if you already havent, if i doesnt work then us my procedure
    Download an earlier version of the market and transfer it to your SD card, and install it.

    If after a while it updates to the current version
    Then download terminal emulator and enter these commands:

    pm disable com.android.vending.updater

    Just replacing the .apk doesnt work, market disapears from the system completely. Installing from SD card doesnt work either, says "application not installed"
    any ideas?

    Uninstall all updates to the market app. Delete all data for the market app.
    Then, copy the older version to /system/app
