So I'm new here, just received a PDP for Xmas, firmware version PR72_A_BN_W_A_C_12022011. I take it that's the latest?If you did apply the Market Fix for Missing Apps, but have issues with it, (as I did with my PDP) (you should only have issues if you have the PDP with 2.3.4) check out my post, Missing Apps Fix Broke It. You can find a full fix there.
What is the Market Fix for Missing Apps anyway? I'm fairly new to the whole rooting and flashing new FW thing, though I did successfully root my original droid phone as well as installed a cyanomodfix ROM. Was pretty easy, though it's hard to get simple, concrete info on how to ensure that you have a recovery ROM sitting in your memory somewhere so if you mess up your new ROM flash, you can go back.
Anyway, I'd like to try the FW that spz0 has come up with. It's already rooted, etc, so I think I can follow the instructions.
