    My x5a tablet shows that market is installed in application manager but it is not showing in the application menu or the home screen. Anybody got any ideas on how to get the icon to show/Market to work?

    The About Device page says the following:
    Android version - 2.3.3(1.6)
    Kernel version - 2.6.35.7-tcc root@ubuntu #245
    Build number - HSHG-X5A

    Thanks

    I have some more information about this. I have looked at the running services and Market is not running. Also, I have looked in Dev tools and Market is disabled. Is there any way to enable Market / fix this problem?

    Thank you

    Maybe if you try to update it will appoint the icon again.

    Goggle "update android market 3.0.27" and look for apk file

    Install with a explorer or app manager

    I hope it will work, actually I own this tablet but in 2.1, it will be good if it work with 2.3

    But before make a backup, it is interesting your rom it could be help to people who is trying to make a decent port to different tablets with same chip.

    For anyone else experiencing this problem - I have managed to get it working now.

    Goto ES File Explorer - system - app - vending.apk

    The icon will then be back. Now immediately sign in to Google/market or the icon will disappear again on the next reboot. Don't ask me why this works but it does.
