    I am now running the Black Market 2.3.6

    Is there a way to prevent the upcoming market update? I have no interest in the changes they will be making and do not want to loose my current market.

    Yes, rename the MarketUpdater.apk to MarketUpdater.bak in system/app through root explorer. Reboot your phone after the renaming just to make sure it takes effect.

    I just like to use TiBu first because it's a little easier than goin in and renaming files. I will rename if I have to but if TiBu will do the job in seconds then i'm game. Call me lazy....lol

    Renaming in root explorer can be done in seconds too ;)

    I'd rather rename the .apk file, there have been times where "freezing" an app with TiBu didn't keep it from running for me.

    Yeah I know. That's why I said I will rename if I have to cause I know TiBu doesn't always work. Root explorer is a much needed app and everyone should get it even if they don't think they will use it cause sooner or later they will.

    Root Explorer is definitely a must have app.

    If you don't want to purchase Root Explorer, you can use ES File Explorer; it does essentially the same thing and it's free.
