Market and Auto App Updates
So, here is one for you guys...
My wife and I got 2 fascinates. I rooted them both using the provided instructions on this site. Everything is cool so far, lag fix is kicking butt.
One thing that annoys me is that my wife has a diff version of the market app, so she gets the option to auto update and update all buttons, while I don't.
My three questions are:
Can you manually update the market app?
Can I copy a market app from my wife's root directory and install it on my phone, since they both are rooted? If so, what is the name of the app and where is it?
I cannot find Mobile IM app so I can rename it and get rid of it in my menu, any ideas where to find it on root? (Slightly unrelated, I know...heh)
Thanks in advance.

All of this is fine and good, you are free to do whatever you would like on your phone and I don't mean to judge you for it. What I think stinks is that apparently the old version of the market I am stuck with won't let me log in and according to the community the only solution i have is to either wait with a broken app on my phone, or install an app whose authenticity is unverified.

The Market it self has a lot of apps that take information from your phone and shows a red flag ... it is just up to the person downloading those apps or file if they are willing to take those risks. No different from rooting your phone and taking the word of the community that such kernel or rom is worth installing on your phone.
I've had this unit for a month and I rooted, debloated, installed JT's ROM and so far i am pretty satisfied. One thing i learned from owning cellphone's is never store valuable information such as birthday's, Social security number, addresses, credit card/ or bank account numbers/ pin numbers or even your height/weight/age.
