Miss the old Android Market? Wish to keep you're old shortcut to the market, the one you've grown to know and love? Look no further, replace that newfangled "Play Store" shortcut icon with the original Android "Market" shortcut icon in protest of Google's move to take away the market we love. Long live the Android Market! =)
1. Download and Install.
2. Launch "Market"
3. Check the "default" box and then tap Play Store. (Sometimes Unnecessary.)
4. Drag your "Market" shortcut icon to your home screen.
*This will not actually bring back the original android market, it is only a shortcut that looks like the original android market. It was created just to give the new market the old icon and bring back a little bit of its old familiarity.
*It will still say "Google Play" up to when you click the "Market" shortcut icon that you install after following these instructions. Though I am looking for a work around I am doubtful that it can be done, for now at least.
*I made this because I don't like Google's transition towards "Google Play" and wish Google would switch back to the old market. Download, comment, and rate if you feel the same.
One way to fix many problems with this application is to go into your "Manage Applications" menu, navigate to this application, press "clear defaults", and try running this application again.
