    Ok so everytime I use the market it updates to the new crap one.
    The slow, laggy one that FCs everytime I try to update an app :(

    When it first updated a few weeks ago I was able to uninstall it and it stayed as the old one till last night.
    Now everytime I uninstall the update and try to go into it within a few minutes it's back to the new version again.

    Any ideas?


    Ohhh post 666 - awesome! :)

    Well fixed it... in a roundabout way.
    Flashed the new Redux test and it's fine now, well as fine as that crap market can be.

    Just need to recook my theme now - forgot how gash Redux looks as stock ;)

    It's simply a case of deleting marketupdater.apk

    Would that require S-Off?

    delete marketupdater.apk, either adb or root explorer if s-off. Or reflash redux, but remove it from the rom first.
