    So I randomly noticed today that Gmail 2.3 is available in the market, which is the highest version I've seen anywhere. It shows up in my list of downloads, but doesn't show as 'Installed.' I'm currently running 2.2.1 on rooted Inc.

    When I click install, it says that it is unsuccessful. Do I need to remove 2.2.1 first, and then try to install? It doesn't give the "update" option. Just want to make sure uninstalling 2.2.1 won't cause any issues.

    I'm running Virtuous 2.7. Tried uninstalling 2.2.1 through Titanium then installing through Market.. didn't work.

    More importantly than updating the version, I'd just like to have the access through the market instead of having to find the .apks.

    I am 100% stock (with Gmail 2.2.1 previously installed, via .apk)

    Gmail 2.3 installed directly from the Market without a hitch!

    I deleted it with titanium, restarted the phone, then installed from market and it worked perfectly.

    Running Virtuous.

    Good call.. I didn't try restarting.. I'm also in the middle of trying out the Redemption Rom, so this will take a back seat for the time being:)

    yep, the deletion of the .apk and then restarting and installing the new one from the market seems to be the fix. i used titanium to delete it as stated by benson304. i am also using virtuous rom

    ok so the article linked above says that it supports priority inbox, but I don't see it anywhere. Am I blind?

    edit: nevermind. "Important" is one of the labels. I was expecting a similar layout to the desktop priority inbox. Ah well.
