android-market

We have recently shared a post on how to install new android market manually on your Android devices. However, if you have already installed it on your Android phone and feeling uneasy with its new looks plus it also lags a lot especially on lower end phones then no problem you can still go back to older market application.

Once again thanks to XDA member Omnichron who has found a way to bring the older market back on your Android Phone and makes your life once again easy and comfortable. Omnichron has managed to do it by replacing some files on your Android device´s directory. All you have to do is to uninstall and re install some APK files. Your kind feedback will be required if it’s successful or not.

IMPORTANT

THIS METHOD IS BIT RICKY ON ROOTED STOCK ROM BUT IT WORKS GREAT ON ROOTED CUSTOM ROM. THEREFORE PROCEDURE I AM GOING TO WRITE NOW IS ALL AT YOUR OWN RISK. KOOLMOBILE.NET WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF IT GETS FAILED OR CAUSED ANY DATA LOSS!!!!!
