Xoom Market Your Client is out of date. it will be automatically updated shortly.

When I click on the Market icon i get Your Client is out of date. it will be automatically updated shortly. I have had the Xoom since yesterday and registered it right away and it has been connected since then. Anyone have an idea how to solve this or how long "shortly" is?

so here is the solution to my problem. I actually did get an update to the market place (i assume everyone did too?) but that still didn't fix the problem. I had to call again and this time the lady that helped me told me to turn off wifi for a minute and then to delete my gmail acount that was linked. then to put the gmail account back and suddenly it was working. Not sure this will help anyone else but hope it does. lots of stuff to try now. liking the xoom more all the time.

UPDATE:

I talked to VZW tech and was told that there is an update that is being pushed out to all Xoom's. She said that it should be fixed by tomorrow. So i have to wait..... Hope she was right.

That's strange. Mine is still working. I had a similar problem the first few times I went to the market, but after a few tries \ rebooted mine cleared up.

yeah i am a little suspicious too. but possibley it won't work with the original version once a new one is being pushed out for new users. but will continue to work if you already had it up and running. just a guess. but back to the store with it if it isn't fixed by tomorrow. not much fun without apps :smileysad:

FWIW, I have been using the Market app every day since 2/28 with no problems at all. I never saw the message about an update being available. Application info on Market says I have version 1.0.16.  I don't know if that is the current version or not. Didn't find information on Market app software version at Market website or Android developer site. 

 

Now there is one setting that I changed the first day I had the Xoom. I wanted to install the "Help Center" app I Googled up on Motorola's website, but by default the Xoom only allows installation of apps from the Market. So I went into "Settings" | "Applications" and checked "Unknown sources" in order to "Allow installation of non-Market applications".  I do not know if having this setting checked made it easier for some other service to update the Market app or not, but it is a plausible theory, since there may have been a problem with getting Market to update itself "in band" so to speak, since the Xoom was set to only allow installations from Market. Kind of a chicken-or-egg, pull yourself up by your own bootstraps kind of problem.

This solution didn't work for me: it's still showing "Your client is out-of-date."

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Adding to what was stated besides any update, when the icon launches for the Android Market, you will see the Out of Date message and the Client will update within moments/minutes. Customers should be able to see the download and install activity in their notification panel (bottom right of device screen). Once the Client is updated, the customer will reopen Android Market and will be able to see and use market normally.
Thanks,

for some reason i had to change my user name from bigdave to dave_flagg to post here.... anyway did you turn off your wifi and let it connect with 3g? for some reason that seemed to be key to the issue.
