I was able to successfully upgrade my SE W8 from 2.1 Eclair to 2.3.7 Gingerbread using Ginger DX custom ROM. Its fully functional and looks awesome. Now i am able to install all the apps directly to SD card which was a drawback in 2.1 but i cannot find the market application in my updated mobile.

Please help me to instal the market application in my mobile.
