    Welcome to AF Eazy (no relation to the late Mr. Eazy E., right? :p). When you say *tried* to restore to the ROM you were running prior, did you restore a nandroid?...or flash the previous ROM you were running? Was the ROM you were running before AOSP?

    I used the recovery option that is given after holding down the power button and the volume button. If I use any other ROM it is fine but if i use the one i created the back up of market place is gone

    Odd. Is that the only app missing? What ROM is it that you're trying to restore?

    Have you tried reflashing a stock rooted ROM? I'm sure if you did that the Market would reappear for you.

    You can find rooted stock ROM's here, just be sure to choose the appropriate ROM for your build (ie: 3.70xxxx). If you're looking for a stock ROM w/ bloatware removed and optimizations, I also recommend the following:

    Sprint Lover's
    Mikfroyo
    Fresh (the one you're currently running)

    You can find them here along w/ other ROM's to try.

    I'm assuming you have Android Market intact and present now, correct?

    Search your phone for the marketplace app. A lot of times it is hiding and a search will correct it. Also check your app settings to see if it's on the list. Then get Titanium Backup Pro. Backup all your apps so you can restore your glitched apps.
