    i take it you're not rooted.

    try Manage Applications/ Market /Uninstall update.

    but tbh it will just update itself again.

    as Tyseyh said if you uninstall the market it will sadly update itself again at some point...maybe a few minutes, maybe a few hours..

    advice is basically, if your not rooted, then to root...then use a terminal emulator and kill the market updater file...you'll have to search for the right command to use as I don't remember it off the top of my head.

    Black Market is not immune to updates - disabling market updater is still needed.

    I cant believe Google cannot tailor its updates to apply to some phones and not others. Is Android Market just going to get bigger and bigger until my poor Desire is completely choked?

    the thing we have to remember is while the 'new' market was released awhile ago as a side load download...the official release of it was only in the last month...and so I don't think Google has really had the time (amongst ALL it does do with its ever growing platform and projects) to devote a large portion to maybe streamlining it...or maybe they have a cut off period where they look at complaints and then decide what to do...I dunno..

    But I don't think they will keep making it bigger and more slower (at least for older devices) as a core staple of Android devices are cheap/slower devices..I mean what will google do, just let the phone maker themselves put out a terrible 'their version' of the market like we see on some of the cheap tablets? heaven forbid if that happens more...
