    I know I'm going to regret this jaily :D

    Do this to get the old Market back...

    Go to Settings > Applications > Manage applications > All > Market when you open Market there should be a button that says... "Uninstall updates".. press it.

    You may need to reboot your phone after this to get your old Market back.

    Hope this helps. :D

    Go into settings, applications, manage applications. Go into the market app and you should see a button on there to uninstall updates

    I updated to 3.1.3 a while back via .apk file and I was getting errors trying to update any app.
    I tried clearing data but the problem persisted.
    So I reverted back to the previous version using the steps already described.
    I then had version 2.x of the Market (ie. the version that came with the firmware)
    This version stayed on there until I decided to try and update it again.
    What version of firmware are you on? I'm not sure if the latest builds come pre-installed with version 3.
    If you get an "unistall update" button, then it would have come with version 2, so you should be able to go back to this without a problem

    Thats because I tried putting it back to version 2 just now to see what happens in an attempt to try to help you out, only to discover it now auto-updates itself to version 3, which is a very recent thing.
    I dont know why I bother sometimes.

    That's uncalled for and ungrateful. It's already been explained that previously uninstalled updates did not automatically reinstall themselves, hence hawker's confusion.

    Again, an uncalled-for comment.

    Let's get something crystal clear, Jaliy. Nobody here owes you an answer, especially when much of the advice that has been offered was either ignored or questioned. This is a free-to-access user-to-user forum, not a 24/7 support service. Members visit and post in their own time, for no reward other than the feelgood factor of helping others. Please remember that.

    i'm not saying i'm not grateful for the answers i got
    but i spend 1 hour repeating myself for the fact that was there but nobody cared to actually try it out themselves
    all i wanted was a confirmation from anyone who took 30 sec to try it on their phone

    if they don't want to help, that is fine
    but plz don't give wrong advice
    that will just make things worse

    I think it is pretty obvious that both Ironass and Hawker wanted to help, but that their previously-accurate advice had been superceded thanks to a change by Google. That was unfortunate, but you can hardly expect users to double-check something that they've previously experienced. However I'm pretty sure that most will now think twice before offering advice in future.

    i don't know how they thought that market app will stay at old version once i uninstall update
    because if that's the case how do i update back to the new version?
    there's nothing on the phone that allows manual market app update

    I do have to agree with jaliy ,This new market is slow it seems that at night I cant get around the market but I can during the day. Think they must be doing updates during the night or something. I do like the layout just wish it was faster.

    And I do have to DISAGREE with jaily. Since I installed 3.1.3 from .apk it works way faster than previous version. It might depend from connection u have atm. On H+ and H it works very well and fast. But on E or below it is a bit slow... I have H most of the time so can`t complain :)
