    Just installed the updated market through recovery, and im getting constant FC, any you know of any reason why I would be, or if theres no fixes is there any way to get the old version back appart from re installing cyanogen through fastboot?

    Will a restore from mybackuproot restore the old market, or doesnt it backup system apps?

    That's odd, I'm having no problems with it, and I've been using it for about a week..
    I'm completely guessing, but have you tried wiping cache, and maybe davlik-cache?
    There is a way to get the old Market back, and thats to install the vending.apk through recovery.
    I'll try and create a zip for you now. one second.

    Here you go:
    >Old Market2<
    Install that through clockwork to get the old one back.

    EDIT:
    Im pretty certain MyBackUp doesnt backup system apps.

    EDIT2:
    Fixed link

    The old market installer doesn't seem to instal the old market, in clockwork the bar goes to about 10% then says its installed updated market, but the new one stays on my phone and im still getting constant FC, and i forgot to do a backup through clockwork, i know im stupid lol

    Sorry, I see my mistake.. it was named Vending.apk not vending.apk >_<

    This one should work:
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    EDIT:
    Tested it works for me.

    I reistalled CyanogenMod 7 RC1 through fastboot, then installed the new market and it doesnt FC anymore, but when I try to download apps it just says "starting download" but doesnt download the apps, my phone has internet access, but it just wont download the apps, this is on a clean RC1 install with only system apps installed.

    Problem seems to have sorted now, got mybackuproot downloaded, now, thanks for all your help
