    if the apps you are trying to update are system apps that were included as part of the rom, the updates won't install. that's because the system apps are designated as "read only". you can get the updated apps if you want in one of 3 ways:

    the easiest way is thru root explorer. go into system/app, and then click the "mount r/w" button (to change the system files from read only to read/write). then find the app, long press on it, and then hit "delete". then push the "mount ro" button to change back to read only, exit out of root explorer and then reboot (this is important to get the change in system apps to "take.") when you boot back up, you should be able to install the app from the mkt, with the update.

    the second avenue is thru Terminal Emulator. type in:

    su
    sysrw
    rm /system/app/[name of app].apk
    sysro
    reboot

    again, it's necessary to actually type in "reboot" and enter, to get the change to take.

    finally, you can go into the rom zip file, manually delete/remove the app, and then reflash the newly configured rom zip file w/o the system app. then you should be able to dl the updated app from the market.


    just a word of warning: if you are running a theme, the update will overwrite it, and your app will no longer be themed (until the dev'r or themer updates for the particular app).

    If the apps you're trying to update are not system apps, try going into Settings > Applications > All > Market, then press "Clear Cache" and "Clear Data." Then try again.

    it helped clear the market not working whatso ever but would not allow downloading of applications. thats the only thing holding me back from fully using this ROM

    are you unable to download them at all to your phone, or is it that once they download, they won't install?? if the mkt won't even let you download them, then that sounds like an install issue. did you wipe data and cache before installing the rom? i would reinstall the rom, wiping data and cache, and see if that fixes it.

    if you can download the apps, but then you get an "installation unsuccessful" message, then that is probably because the apps are system apps, and you will have to follow one of the procedures i outlined above.
