    Can someone tell me how update the market without using the released apk? I remember being able to force update the market on my Hero. I want to try deleting the market to force the update using the app manager but I don't want to mess anything up. Plus I don't know if that will work on the 3D.

    I believe the Market will update on its own. I know the last time it was updated it did. So if you don't want to use the released apk then you will have to wait I believe. I'm in no hurry for the updated version. I tried it and don't really like it.

    yes you must wait for the market to update on its own or you must use the apk thats being released.

    Read yesterday that they're ready to start rolling it out.

    So - it's coming soon.

    I've been using it for a while now, so I'm not sure if you could do this in the earlier version or not...But, one thing that annoys me is not being able to rate an app that you have payed for unless it is installed.

    It is definitely rolling out right now. My old Sprint HTC Hero running CyanogenMod 7.1 got it already even though I did not install the updated Android Market .apk file. I sort of chuckled at the fact that my old handset got it before my shiny new Sprint HTC EVO 3D. Oh well.

    A friend of mine with a Verizon Samsung Fascinate that is running Android 2.2 got it yesterday evening. I am sure you will see it soon.

    Somebody told me if you Clear the Market Cache and Force Close that it would update itself. I tried this and mine did not update. Not sure if anyone else wants to try this... Looking forward to getting the new market myself! =)

    I still have 2.3.4

    The market on my WiFi only hero stopped working yesterday, says it has server and network errors. Maybe it needs to update

    Hands On: New Android Market and Google Videos [Video]

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roGGgsEJUZU&feature=player_embedded

    by Chris Chavez on July 12th, 2011 at 11:38 pm
    Alright, so the new Android Market was announced by Google earlier today featuring an all new UI, widget, integration with Google Videos and multiple Gmail accounts. A few hours later, we actually got our hands on the new Market v3.0.26 (signed by Google) and I quickly uploaded it for everyone to enjoy and test out for yourselves.
    Given the sketchiness of downloading apps anywhere but from the Android Market, a few of you were (understandably so) apprehensive about trying out the new Market and installing in your phone. Even more of you didn’t even have a phone equipped with Android 2.2 or higher (one of Google’s prerequisites for the app).
    So, it’s for you guys that I’ve gone ahead and shot a quick (read: rough) video showing off the new Market and its Google Video rental service, simply to give you guys a better idea of what to expect in the coming weeks.
    Oh- and if you change your mind about downloading the new Market, well — DownloadHere is still waiting for you. You can always go back to the old Market following this simple steps:

    • Go into your phone’s Settings
    • Select "Manage Applications"
    • Select the "All" tab at the top
    • Scroll down to Market app and select it
    • Select "Uninstall Updates"
    • Now have your old Market back!

    LOL, ok. The easiest thing for you to do is use your phone to download the file thats linked a few posts up. Once downloaded just click on it and you will see the option to install it.

    just one other thing - after downloading it, go to you settings, application and check "unknown sources". Then, click on the downloaded apk (assuming you have downloaded it to your phone or the microSD on your phone) and you will see the option to install it.

    This helps if there is an update available, but if the update hasent been pushed to your phone yet then theres nothing for it to update.

    Like the title says, why hasn't it rolled out to the 3VO, yet?

    I personally already installed it on my phone, but my girlfriend still has the old market. Wasn't it due out weeks ago?

    Not sure why the 3VO does not have it yet, but I'm not really looking forward to it. The Photon has it. Not sure if any other Sprint have it.

    I'm secretly praying we don't get it. My gf has it on her TBolt and I think it is cluttered too much.
