    Works fine, installed it last night and is even showing the apps I need updated. No issues at all.

    The best part is that it now works with a screen density set to 160 which is what you need in order for Google Reader to be full screen! I give that two thumbs up!

    Totally off topic noob question, but how do I change my screen density to 160? I hate how google reader displays so small.

    Download screen density app. The one I had I think was simply called screen density. Either way a market search should get u there

    Im pretty sure You can't get movies if you're on a rooted device

    I think movies for now are a no-go for all tabs regardless of if they are rooted or not. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    I'm running the new market on the latest stable build of CM7 and there is no option for movies.

    I downloaded the new maket onto my MIUI Nook Color. When I first used it, the applications would not show the install button. I did a "Clear Data" under manage applications and the market worked fine after that. Like others, I don't have the Movies option on my Nook Color, but I do have it on my Dell Streak 5" running DJ Steve's Streakdroid 1.9.1 (rooted).

    Can someone help? I moved "Vending.apk" onto the root of my NC sd card. Then, I found the apk file in Root Explorer on my Nook and tried to install it. No go...it gives me a error message reading "There is a problem parsing the package." What can I do different to get it to install?

    I get the new market installed on my nookie froyo on a micro sd card, but then it doesn't work. It force closes when I open it. The market before hand worked and I can uninstall the updates and it works fine. I tried a couple of market updates, including the one's posted in xda and here and they didn't work. Any ideas AC community ?

    I had a problem with this on my Droid X as well and this seemed to fix it perfectly. Use Root Explorer or es file explorer (with root enabled and system mounted etc) then copied the market download file, and pasted it in /system/app. I then renamed the original file "vending.apk" to "vending.bak" then renamed the new downloaded market file to "vending.apk". You may have to restart the tablet if you get a FC and/or make sure the permissions are the same as the original market file.

    Here is the file: (Sorry about the length, just copy paste into browser)

    Had new market installed on CM7 emmc. Ran into issue of not being able to get a couple of apps from the market which I could before. This new market app does some checking and may decide that your device does has the proper support. Especially things like no GPS. The one app I wanted to install and had before a Nook CM7 rebuild is Net Swiss Tool. Great for network related PD. Does not make use of anything not on the Nook but would not allow install with the new market. I opened up the gapps zip file and got the vending.apk from it and installed it. Now the older market allows install of apps that the new market would not. Apps work just fine by the way.

    Just a word of warning based on my experience.
