Market not loading on Android 2.1


I just got a HTC Hero with 2.1-update-1 and when I click on the 'Market' it tries to load but then crashes out.

I've checked for updates but it doesn't seem to have any. What else can I try to get my Market working again?

Is there a way to get a log of what is crashing?


Did you happen to manually advance your clock in order to force the 2.1 update? If so, you need to either manually change it to the current time or adjust the settings to read date/time from the network. Then the market will work (did for me)

My Market app from time to time does this mostly when I select Downloads. Anyway, I went to Settings/Applications/ManageApplications and selected Market. I then selected Market and cleared cache and uninstalled update. This makes it work correctly for a while, but it eventually it returns to crashing every now and then since it seems the Market app upgrades in the background.
