Get Your Old Android Market Back

After all this Touchpad madness and some other hot news, I got back to writing and been reading that a lot of members would want to go back to older Market application; XDA member Omnichron show us a way to revert back to older version by replacing some files on your Android device´s directory. You will have to uninstall and re install some apk´s, Dev does not specify if your device must be rooted or not so let us know how it works for you by leaving your feed back.

*Do a reboot.
