      Ah, you should not get serious with this, then. Just leave this hack for now. I’ll get back to you when I find an easy solution, sure.
      BTW, your email address you were born in 1996. Is it correct? Are you just 15 years old or so and playing with hacks like this? Cool!

    Flash the zip in recovery and it will install just fine.

    I just put this on my SGS Captivate with the Cognition 2.3 b8 ROM. Works well so far. We will see once there is an update to an app.

    Which phone and android OS version you are trying this on? It seems this hack works only on android 2.2, although not confirmed or said by the developer.

    Anyway if you’re already on android 2.2, try by first installing the android market v2.2.7 [link given in post above].

    You could also try by flashing through recovery. Just download the either of Black, Blue or Red market file –> rename to update.zip (if necessary) –> and finally flash through your phone’s recovery mode.

    Did not work, copying to /system/app/ produced this. (I had market 1.8.2)

    so if I read this correctly, everything but the market updater and the Vending.apk need deleted…then you flash the zip from recovery?

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      If you got a capital V in vending.apk in /System/App, then you are good to go and I think you do not need to delete any files, nor there is any need to look further.

      By the way, let me know which phone and android version you’re trying this with. I tried it on android 2.2.1.
