    For all of you having problems installing version 3.2.0. This is what I did.
    I backup my Market version 3.1.6 with Titanium Backup. I then removed it.

    I rebooted my phone into recovery with RA Recovery 2.3. I cleared cache and Dalvik cache. Rebooted the phone and I follow Step 1 instructions on page 1.

    I copied Vending.apk using Root Explorer to system/app on the top it reads
    Mount R/W I clicked on it to now read Mount R/O. I then pressed down on Vending.apk I clicked on permissions and selected what page one read
    Owner read and Write
    Group Read and
    Others Read.

    I then click on Mount R/O and switched to Mount R/W and pressed on Vending.apk and clicked on Install.

    Remember my first instructions on top Clear Cache and Dalvik cache.

    I also had the same problems this morning when trying to install Version 3.1.6
    These steps work.
