So I went to install an app today through AppBrain's app. When I clicked "market" it says "Sorry, your device doesn't seem to have the Android market installed."

I'm like, no, that can't be right...

Check my list of apps from the home screen and the market app is gone!

What the heck?

I'm not rooted, and I haven't deleted the app. How do I get the market back? I tried rebooting to no avail.

Help? :(

Well it seems to have fixed itself. I googled and tried to download the .apk file for the market, but when I tried to open it (after install) it force closed every time.

I got frustrated and decided it was time to root my phone, so in the process of that I plugged it into my PC to access the bootloader, and when I rebooted it that way, the market reinstalled.

I had tried powering it on/off last night, to no avail. Not sure what happened, but maybe this will help someone in the future.
