Re: My android market hasnt updated yet
A common fix for a common problem- clear Market application's data:
1. Navigate to your phone's "Settings" via menu button. 2. Scroll down to "Applications" and select it. 3. Next, select "Manage applications." 4. Now, select the "All" tab 5. Scroll to find "Market" and select it. 6. You may now select "Clear data" to reset the Market application to it's original state. Navigate to the Market app to launch it. Wait a minute or a few depending on the number of applications installed. Update notification should appear in navigation bar prompting you to update your market applications.

How do you install apps on Android?
The following applies to any app that you might want to install on your Android tablet.
There are a few ways to go about this. The easiest is, of course, the Android Market itself. But it's quickly finding competition in the likes of the Amazon Appstore. And there are smaller third-party app stores as well, though they haven't necessarily caught on as much as you'd think.
The Android Market
The Android Market is the easiest way to install new Android apps. It should already be installed on your phone or tablet. If it's not, chances are you have one of those (really) cheap Android tablets, and it didn't meet Google's approval. That doesn't mean you can't install new apps, though, and we'll talk more about that in a minute.
Android Market To use the Android Market, you'll need to be signed in with a Google account. Chances are you did this when you first set up the phone. But if not, you can add a Google account to your phone (and even sign up for one at the same time) straight from your phone. Go to Settings>accounts to do so.
Once you're logged in, you'll be able to browser the Android Market, purchase apps, or download free apps. The Android Market also is where you'll update apps you've already loaded. Purchasing apps is done a couple of ways.
One is through Google checkout. You give it a credit card number, and it manages the transactions for you.
Another way is through carrier billing. If you're on Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile you can charge apps to your phone bill.
There are also a couple ways to browse the Android Market. You'll mostly likely do it from your phone. But if you're at a computer, you can browser, purchase and install apps from the Android Market web portal. It's at www.market.android.com.
Fun fact about the Android Market: Once you've purchased an application, you can download it onto as many phones as you have. Need more space on your phone? Uninstall an app and put it back on later if you need it again, at no additional charge. To install from the Android Market on your phone
Choose an app.
To install, tap "Free" (If it's a paid app, you'll tap "Purchase"
You'll be asked to accept permissions -- this shows you what the app can access on your phone. Hit yes, and the app will download and install.
Note: You can cancel a download as it's happening. For paid apps, you can request a refund within 15 minutes. To install apps from the Android Market
Go to market.android.com from a web browser.
Pick an app. Hit the install button.
You'll be asked to accept permissions, and choose which device you want to install on (if you have more than one).
Look over the permissions and hit the install button again. The app will magically be downloaded and installed on your phone.
The Amazon Appstore
A relative newcomer is the Amazon Appstore. It's similar to the Android Market in that you'll have to have an account with Amazon to use it. Unlike the Android Market, the Amazon Appstore likely didn't come pre-installed on your phone, so you'll need to download it.
Once it's on your phone, you can download apps directly from it or, like the Android Market, from a web portal. App downloaded through the Amazon Appstore will be updated through the Amazon Appstore and not through the Android Market.
The following tutorial video will take you through the entire process better than my written words.
well obviously the market app wont work until you have an active wireless connection. But it also sounds like the market app is corrupted. Connect your g1 to a wireless network with internet access and then go into settings and tell it to search for updates. That might fix it
2.2 Froyo is actually the latest update for android. If it isnt downloading automatically if you go to main menu and android market and search for android 2.2 Froyo you can download the upgrade from there.
You should update the 'System' on your phone.
Go to Settings>About Phone
Select 'System Updates' to get your system up to date. This should get you going with Android Market.
You will need some internet connection for this.
