Own a Motorola Device? Google Play Store Update Probably Just Broke Your Market Links

As the Google Play store rolls out to handsets across the world, those of you with Motorola devices are noticing one thing in particular – it breaks your app drawer market link. Yep, it’s annoying and it won’t be fixed until Moto releases another OTA update. The Blur skin installed on your phone is looking for the old market application, but since it has been renamed, removed, or replaced (however you want to look at it), it won’t ever find it. I’m sure that crafty rooted users can find a way to manipulate Blur code to look for the Play Store, but the majority of you are simply ___ out of luck.

So when your market updates today – unless you did already – and you see this notification leading you to believe that your Android Market is gone for good…actually it is gone for good. Instead, try not to freak out and simply turn a couple of extra pages until you find “Play Store.” Yep, that’s what Google is calling the market these days.

*Note – Since Moto has about 15 different versions of Blur in the wild, this may not affect all of their phones. It’s definitely causing problems on the RAZR and MAXX though.

    My droid x will only update market applications via a wifi connection… the pitiful phone tries to no avail, to update thru 3G, but it can’t. If I’m lucky enough to be able to go somwhere & connect to wifi- what I do, is I sit there & update ALL my apps needing updates, until I’m completely updated.

  • barkway

    Why do I have BOTH “google play store” AND “Market” on my phone, and why can’t I uninstall Play Store? I didnt download it, and dont want it due to all the permissions (invasions of privacy) it demands.

  • lyonc

    there’s a fix for this,go to ‘manage applications’uninstall ‘google play store’market button in the apps menu should be working now but will be directed to old marketplaceclick on market button again, will be asked to install google play againinstall it, and the market button should be working again

    • barkway

      There is no choice there of “uninstall”

  • tbhausen

    Interesting!

    My Market updated to Play Store at version 3.4.7 (I never saw a 3.4.6–it went stright from 3.4.4 to 3.4.7) and the Motorola app drawer icon works fine. Also, the old Market app icon is gone. So it looks like Google and Motorola are cleaning this up. I’ll bet everyone gets upgraded from 3.4.6 to 3.4.7 and the problem is solved without an OTA OS update

  • google play sucks

    Very angry here. This it the way I have been getting to the market since I got this phone. So glad rebranding was more important than functionality. Maybe most of you don’t use this shortcut but if someone changed how you used your phone everyday without telling you, maybe you’d be pissed too. I had to search for like 10 mins before I found this page, thinking my phone was broke. Unprofessional google

  • Udispyn

    I have ADW Launcher and it works fine with the play store.

  • It’s a problem on the Droid Bionic also.

  • Ownedbydroid

    Also not working on ATRIX 2.3.4.

    Market of course is gone from the drawer and now play is there instead, which is no problem, however, it was nice when in an app and wishing to multi-task it was handy to press and hold the home button and when the app drawer opened just hit the bag

  • Ownedbydroid

    Also not working on ATRIX 2.3.4.

    Market of course is gone from the drawer and now play is there instead, which is no problem, however, it was nice when in an app and wishing to multi-task it was handy to press and hold the home button and when the app drawer opened just hit the bag at the top of the screen and market would spring up.

    Not too clever when ATRIX (UK) is going to get ICS inQ4 2012 at the earliest and with no planned update revision of Gingerbread either before that.

    Thing is I quite like the Blur skin but it has turned out to be a burden. ATRIX UK did not get GB till December 2011 some 6+ months after US. The delays to updates are presumed due be to Blur and webtop.

    Looking like the last interferred skinned Android for me EVER. My next Android will be one that runs stock Android like the Nexus or another builder that either is stock / quick to update or just running a visual skin and not deeply implanted skin that is integral to the OS.

    MotoFail. The ATRIX a great idea and a great phone but without the support of a DECENT & committed company to back it up.

    Motorola, a once great company now behind companies that looked up to them.

    Rant over

  • Eazy E Dlf

    People relax its called the play store now just scroll down a few rows n it will be there

  • jroc74

    Yea…its a lil more to this than…”it breaks on Motorola phones”

    In the middle of me trying to update it I didnt have a connection. I
    went to turn on Wifi. When I came back, my Market link was broke and I
    had Play Store on my phone.

    Which is wild cuz I never got Wifi fully established. Unless the updated
    went extremely fast once wifi was fully on. I’m thinking something is
    going wrong in the middle of updating and losing a connection. Might be
    an issue with other phones too.

    EDIT: WOW ….a simple reboot fixed it for me. That or this: I tried to
    uninstall Play Store, got an error about not uninstalled, rebooted my
    phone, clicked the Market link in the app drawer, got prompted again for
    the update..

    NOW my Market link works fine. So there may be a way around thr broken market link that doesnt require selling an arm or a leg…

  • Mike

    Seems to have broken the downloading of skins from Beautiful Widgets as well

  • droidian1441

    It’s broke on my D3 :/

    My OG Droid is working fine, It updated this morning along with play music. love both new Icons.

  • Santiemanuel
  • Gameboybrave

    I have a razr, stock, no other launcher and it installed the play store to mine, removed my market shortcut but I was able to add the play store widget.

  • Unique

    No problems with Razr here.   It’s removed the Market Icon from app drawer and it added Play Store to the app drawer and it works fine.  I did put the new icon in place of the old one of the docker

  • ZombieSteveJobs

    So THIS is why we deodex and deblur…

  • DesiD92

    I got the updates, but my Market still works fine

  • N8shon

    Just spoke with Verizon tech support to let them know about this, and they’re response was exactly what I expected. They said Motorola will have to push a software update to correct the problem. No surprise there. 

  • Works fine on my Droid X – oh, maybe because I have the Liberty ROM and no Blur…….

  • N8shon

    Uninstalled the update to “Google Play Store” and now I am back to just “Market” I do still have the new Play Music, Videos, and Music apps, but Play Store is now MIA. Oh well, at least upper right hand corner app drawer market link is working again. No worries, I don’t care what it’s called as long as it works! (Razr Maxx)

    • jroc74

      Damn…if I woulda read this first… I wouldnt have made my big ass post…lol

      This is EXACTLY what I did to fix the Market link issue. This isnt as big a deal as its being made out to be. Someone called Verizon about this? lol. They might wanna look to this post for the fix.

      • N8shon

        Yeah it’s not a huge deal at all. I definitely emailed VZW, Motorola, and Google about it when I saw it though. The sooner, and the more they all hear about it, the quicker we should get an update to fix it (hopefully–looking at you Moto). 

  • Rahul_dido

    U r rooted.. lauch titanium backup.. search for Google play n integrate update into rom.. shortcut problem will be fixed.

  • No issues to report on my Bionic. All is smooth.

  • cristian donose

    Happened to me with Launcher 7 on my Galaxy S but fixed right away.

  • LiterofCola

    Let the Moto hate begin….(like it ever ended)

  • Ericbeck

    This actually happened on my nexus as well. I had to delete the original link and i am now using the giogle play link instead.

  • My Motorola Droid Razr, Motorola Razr (UK Version), Motorola Razr (Singapore / Asia Version) doesn’t have problem. I just open Android Market and then otomaticly update Android Market to be Google Play. Also my friend have Motorola Droid 2 doesn’t have problem.

  • STiK

    No issues here on my Blurred out Maxx. Icon is retarded though.

  • djspy006

    I got the Play Store update and the Market app/icon was removed and i now have the play store app/icon. I have a Droid RAZR. No problems on my end.

  • Klostehroff

    I have a bionic. Manually updated it to the play store last night, it removed my regular market app and in the app drawer was the Play app. No problems here.

    • Klostehroff

      After the update people need to make sure they are looking for Play Store, that is your new market app. I’ve talked with a few people who didn’t know.

    • scijohn

      Mine auto updated without a problem. I was wondering why it rebooted last night at 10:30PM. The little market icon works fine. Play Books and Play Music also work fine.

  • Zell

    Have droid 4 and only have google play no more market…works fine…

  • Chris

    No problem on my Droid X…..even with the current update…..I still have the “Market” icon but all is updated and good

    • Matthew DeCillis

       Same here.  It’s fine for me, Market link is removed and it added Play Store to the app drawer and it works fine.

  • I jumped into the Blur Train briefly with the DROID3.  Biggest Android related mistake ever!  Me and my Gnex are a happy couple now!  Once you go Nexus, you never go back!

  • Jmcotto78

    I have a Razr and no problem here.

  • @EMAW_29

    I cleared the market data through application management last night and got updates for books, music, and market…working just fine.

  • no issues on wifi xoom (US)

  • Doesn’t affect my Razr maxx. I’ve got the old 2.3.8 market installed and have blocked all folders and update files. Don’t like the new market. New name or not.

  • Tim_Horton

    So who can tell me why it don’t work on my stock Nexus either?  

    • snowblind64

      You don’t have a Nexus.

  • Also, folks, I work for a Sprint Call center…I have been seeing the Market not updating properly due to various reasons.  This causes not only the “Play” not to show, but breaks Market.  To fix, go to your Manage Applications, then “All” tab.  from there, find Market…or Google Play…and “Uninstall Updates”.  This will return you to the default market that came preinstalled.  From there it should fix itself and then try the update again.

    • N8shon

      I’m about to try this on my Maxx to see if it corrects the problem.

  • Gunther

    Works fine on ADW Launcher EX…but on that Blur crap, yeah, link is broken worst than Blur generally is.

  • Larry Mao

    I have a Droid X, and already updated to the new Play Store. It breaks our most recent Blur update market links. Luckily I don’t use that ish anyway, and so long as you use a third party launcher, you probably won’t even notice that it isn’t working. 

  • Works just fine on my Droid Razr (Black). I manually installed the Play Store though.

  • My Droid X doesn’t have Play yet. Just FYI.

  • MAXXimumBlur

    … I’m confused. I’m running stock Blur on my RAZR MAXX and nothing is wrong with my Google Play Marketplace. Maybe it’s a bug for some people but not everyone, but everything on my phone is running fine and I can access Play from the shortcut in the App drawer (even the one in the upper-right corner) no problem 😛

    • huskerhog

      I just hit the accept button for Google play on my RAZR MAXx and the app is running fine.  The icon still says Market and launches as expected.  Is the icon supposed to say Google Play or continue to say Market?

  • Jeffrey Kaplan

    It effects Go Launcher too, but after you get the “not found” error, you can tell GL to hide the icon.  No big deal.

  • ErasedInOneDay

    The Launcher Market link… Did anyone try rebooting after the upgrade from “Market” to “Play?” I don’t have that newer BLUR launcher with the Market button, so I can’t try myself…

  • Tacown

    It actually fixed mine on my rezound!

  • Asuriyan

    The search button has crashed the app drawer on the stock Blur launcher since the D3 was launched. It still happens on my D4. I don’t see the market link issue ever being fixed.

  • fartbubbler

    if you have a Moto devivce, I’d be more burdened by the locked bootloader than a drawer link to the Market…

  • Sam

    The Market link is working fine on the Droid 4, both in the stock launcher and Go Launcher

  • Jack_flash

    O si en Motorola Atrix fuego 2.3.6 tan error

      Yup same here. Stock RAZR uprooted. Mine updated last night and works just fine.

      • Tmenke88

        Yep my razr maxx updated with no problems..clicked the Android market shortcut and it told me it’s changing to play..it then removed the AM icon and replaced it with the play one in the app drawer..very easy

        • jroc74

          I tried it, I didnt have a connection, went to turn on Wif in the middle of it trying to update and when I went back it was broke.

          I think there may be a lil more to this than it just breaks on Moto phones…

  • bakdroid

    Xoom Wifi stock ICS works.  And it updated the icon to now say Store beside it and the icon has a little “play” symbol in it.

  •  Still the Market on my R2D2, could still be waiting for the update though.

  • John P

    I’ve had a similar issue on my Droid 3 since launch. When I long press the Home to bring up Recent Apps, some apps like Words with Friends and FB Messenger give me the same “Application id not installed” message. It’s not just those two apps.

    • PositiveNegative

       Same here. This feels like a whole new level of incompetence, though.

  • jaymonster

    Who the hell uses that Stock Launcher.  I (unlike like so many others) don’t harbor such ill will towards Motorola “skins” but their launchers, have, do and probably will continue to stink.  With Go Launcher, ADW, even the now somewhat long in the tooth LauncherPro, there is just no reason to continue to suffer with the default launcher.

    • kixofmyg0t

      I did for the longest time. Im forced to use Golauncher with Eclipse because that launcher sucks. 

      Im getting used to the stock ICS launcher though. Still hate the icons and the stock SMS app is HORRIBLE.

  • confused why this works

    Bionic running GB based Eclipse 2.2 and Xoom Wifi running CodenameAndroid 1.5, all updated smoothly (market music etc..) and everything has worked flawlessly. I’m skeptical and waiting for either device to explode in my hand.

  • All the more reason to install something like LauncherPro on your Moto device.  It worked on mine like a charm.

  • Mark

    HERE IS THE FIX!  Worked perfectly on my MAXX, but make sure NOT to re-link anything that is from the Amazon App Store, or the system bloatware types of things. Also, you can use Titanium Backup instead of Rom Toolbox if you want, but don’t use the auto update feature in the market doctor.  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1441387
     

    • Mark

       Hold on…. this is the fix for your Market links being broken and no apps showing in the my apps section. The Market being call Play Store is not an issue. Just scroll over a couple of pages….

  • I love how last night my old Droid X2 which has no service and I use for a different Gmail account got the market update but so far my NS4G and my GNex which both have cellular service and an active contract did not. They did make me agree to the new terms but it is still called market.

  • Akowal

    Mine is working just find on my Razr Maxx. However I’m using launcher pro, and there’s a new icon in my app drawer for Play Store. Works just fine.

  • Aardvark99

    I wondered about Blur this since the update broke my dock shortcut in Launcher Pro Plus (easily fixable). I was more thinking about the Razrs, forgetting my DX’s blur home has the same feature (I haven’t used the blur home screens since like 1 month the phone came out). I wonder if some type of proxy “Market” application could be installed that just launched Play to workaround this until Moto patches.

    • hkklife

      Who even thinks that all of those 2010 and 1H 2011 Blur devices will ever even see another official OTA update? The DX GB update was broken for, what, 8 months before they finally fixed it last month. I highly doubt they would issue another OTA just to correct Google’s mistake. I think its safe to say that DX, D2, D2G, D Pro and maybe even X2 and D3 owners are gonna be SOL…and those are just the Blurred VZW devices!

      I think it’s safe to say both Moto and Google are at fault here. Yet another reason for Google to crack down heavily on how far these damn skins are embedded into the OS!

      • Aardvark99

        Who thinks that they’ll patch this? Me for one, I won’t hold my breath, but I think something official will be done. The GB update was not severally broken for everyone. I’m saying there wasn’t problems, but for sure not everyone had the same set of issues and/or were never noticed by typical owners. With that in mind I can see Moto delaying the big GB fixes (there was one or two update between GB and this last one, no?).

        This market thing is broken for everyone, I suspect this will be addressed far more quickly than GB bug fixes were.

  • I had a problem getting to the market after I updated my Toshiba Thrive last night. I found by adding a Market Widget and clicking on that Widget, I could get to the market.

  • TheDude

    Hah, dumb blur hardcoded to a name. GG Moto

  • ಠ_ಠ Oh look, another reason to drop Blur.

    Hopefully they will fix this soon.  

  • Bionic

    It works fine if you delete the shortcut and then put the new play one in its place.  who cares about app drawer links really?  

    • r0lct

      All those people who aren’t tech savy and don’t read blogs who own an affected Moto device and have no idea what Play is will probably care.

      • Exxxxactly. “What the hell, I don’t have a market anymore? What about my daily xXx Hot Girlz xXx fix!!?!?”

          hurry… better message Tato

        • r0lct

          I’m glad you can share something so personal with the rest of us.  😛

      • Mark Ric55

        It’s not people aren’t tech savvy, it’s people who are dumb as a box of rocks who’ll have a problem. For starters you have to actively update to Play(at least I did), and the icon looks almost identical and replaces it pretty much everywhere. So unless they just aren’t looking at all and the app tray link is the only way they’ve ever gotten to the market and ever will, they shouldn’t have a problem.

    • lacokanostra

      They are talking about the link on the top right corner of the blur app drawer, genius.

      • I’ll admit, not noticing the arrow in the pic at first either, that I thought it was breaking *all* links to market downloaded apps, not just that little market icon that I honestly had never even noticed or used! I just have a market link on one of my homescreens that I use. This doesn’t affect me at all, but I’m sure it will annoy some users.

  • Don

    No problem on my bionic, Google Play works almost like the old app!

    • r0lct

      That’s not what the problem is, reread.

      • scijohn

        I re-read and Don is right. The little market icon works on the Bionic. Update went smoothly.

  • Jeff Creemer

    Or they can just use a different launcher, like Launcher Pro or Go Launcher. It works fine on my Razr Maxx with Go Launcher.

             and you cant flash roms on the X? your argument is not holding much water, have fun with your buggy phone that

            Please all those ROM’s are based off of Blur. And the CM7 and CM9 rooms are buggy and have horrible battery.

            The engineering bootloader leaked out when the phone was released.  It was a little tricky to flash it but not impossible.  We had s-off on the thunderbolt pretty much right when it launched, do your research before making claims like you did

            Right…cuz an unlocked bootloader is whats makes a ….phone….a phone.

            Alrighty then.

            I dont know whats worse….stock Android fanboys, unlocked bootloader fanboys, G Nex fanboys.

            Haters in general just suck.

          First of all, calling the Droid X a POS is revisionist history.  It was (2 summers ago) one of the (if not THE) most anticipated device of the year and sold out at launch.  

          Second, the crappy launcher that is in THAT version of Blur is different than what is used on newer phones like the RAZR.

          Is it underpowered by today’s standards?  Of course.  What 2 year old phone isn’t?  But that hardly made it a POS.

          • lacokanostra

            Yup most anticipated phone, and I’m a sucker who bought it on the first day. Constant reboots. Keyboard lag and just lag overall. And worst of all a locked boot loader so people like me couldn’t install a custom from to fix it. With the last update they broke the email sync haha. Please keep the fan boism to a minimal

            If anything needs to be kept to a minimum, it’s the whining, bitching, and hating.

            Wait wait wait….your saying that the DX locked bootloader is stopping you from installing a custom ROM?

            You need a iPhone dude. Android is a bit too much for you.

            Spnce I still have my Droid X1…and it still runs fine to this day, even after it was having reboot issues while listening to music…I would have to disagree with you.

            That was one of the best phones of 2010.

            And seeing as how many ppl have to go thru multiple exchanges to get a decent working G Nex…I think some of us can cut the Droid X1 some slack…

          • Ebon Hand

            I’m using a rooted and rom’ed Droid X right now and having no issues. =)

        • Blueballs

          Hahaha………Because the “Thundershit” is/was such a great phone…not!
