    All the time I spent learning how to theme the market; had I known about this I would have just passed on it and used these.....lol........then again I probably would have spent that time anyway :D

    Thanks very much for the heads up. Neon Honeycomb was perfect for what I'm doing. Installed thru Root Explorer since I read some people with X's were having trouble with the flashing thru clockwork.

    Now just need a nice swype keyboard that looks the same and I think I will be done for today :)

    This worked for me also running Apex, I just extracted the vending.apk from the zip on my computer and put it to a directory on my sdcard then did the rest in root explorer

    Installing via bootstrap did not work for me either, I had to extract the vending.apk file, move it and change the permissions with Root Explorer.

    It looks good with the rest of my blue/black theme.

    Where did you get this info. from? It sucks if it's true because everyone's market is going to update to the old ugly green again.

    It will eventually if indeed the new market really is 2.3.3 and has been released.

    I'm still at 2.3.2, let's see how long it lasts.

    Ahhh, nice find and thanks for sharing!

    Will these hold if the Market updates or will we have to install a newer version of these?

    Unzip the file and grab the vending.apk file from the system/app folder, then place it on your SDcard, then use root explorer to move it into the system/app folder on your phone. Then long press on the apk file and select "permissions" then change them to: User: Read, Write; Group: Read; and Others: Read. Then just restart your phone.

    My market is still 2.3.2. I don't think 2.3.3 is out yet.
    Perhaps someone is confusing this with the 2.3.3 OTA update coming out for Nexus S?

    Looks like its nandroid time.

    Before you do that go to the menu button, settings, applications, manage applications, all applications tab , find market and clear the cache , that has helped me in the past.

    I tried to do that, but the market was not even showing up under there. Weird. Guess that's what I get for trying to install the new market. Guess I will stick with the old one for now until Team Defuse updates Fission.

    Thanks though.

    I lost the black market two days ago while others lost it a few days prior to me. This would suggest that my phone updated two days ago and my market is currently 2.3.2
