    I've been rooted with Droid Mod forever and have never had any issues or never tried other roms it worked so I've stayed with it. Anyway I was screwing around trying to fix a problem and did a nandroid back up and and restore ( i'm clueless) Did not wipe info (that scares me) and I reflashed the rom a couple times because I kept selecting or deselecting the wrong things. Finally got everything perfect. The phone seemed to like the mini overhaul. But when I rebooted the market apk is gone. No where to be found. All my apps are there but no icon for market. Its just gone. Can I get that, download it desktop, mount, and drag to phone somewhere????. I.m a nob and lost. Any help would be nice. Thanks.

    Its probably good that you ****ed up. DroidMod is old and obsolete. You may not want to switch ROMs but when you do i know you'll be wondering why you hadn't changed earlier.

    I happen to have the old DroidMod update.zip file stored on my PC hard drive. Here's the Vending.apk (which is the Market) from that ROM. I don't know for sure whether this will work, so please make a backup before you try this!

    This file will need to be in /system/app. Do you know how to move it there?
