I've got a device (HTC Magic) with Android 2.1 (rooted, with CyanogenMod). It has Google Market app v2.23.6 - pretty old. I wonder, what's the latest version of Play that runs on Android 2.1?

In the past, this device once had trouble with updating the Market. I wonder if this is the same trouble all over again, or Market 2.23.6 is the latest I'm going to ever get?

EDIT: more about upgrading Market to Play here.

The app still calls itself Market, not Play. This might be relevant; probably Market->Play transition changes the package ID or something.

Have Froyo here running on Samsung Europa, latest version on this is, 4.1.6.

Perhaps you need to let the old Market run for a bit, then back out of it, it should auto-upgrade itself, provided you have a valid account and signed in.

  • That's Froyo, mine's Eclair, 2.1. Waiting for someone with 2.1... Commented Aug 10, 2013 at 17:02
  • Should not make a difference unless Google blocked updates to Market on the older eclair... give me a while and I'll reflash eclair and see what happens ..

  • I'm not so sure. I've reverted Market to the very original version (1.7 something), then forced an update; I've got 2.23.6 again. The linked XDA thread says you have to upgrade to Play via play.google.com somehow; I couldn't figure out how exactly. Commented Aug 11, 2013 at 19:15
