    HELP, Cannot install apps!

    So, this is really frustrating me. I even redid the entire process of using the 2.3.20 SBF file, downloading the official OTA update, rooting the phone, installing ROM Manager and the boostrap, then installing the September 8 build of CyanogenMod 7. I then booted it, rebooted ClockworkMod Recovery and installed the Google apps.

    However, it seems like the majority of apps don't want to download. Some of them will, the ones that phone just automatically re-installs from my purchase history. But other ones, rather IMPORTANT ones like Titanium Backup Pro Key (you know, so I can skip the massive redownloading of 200 apps and just restore my backup with one-click?), it gives me a message saying "[Name of app] could not be downloaded due to an error". I've wiped the data and cache plenty of times, this stupid thing keeps happening. Google apps like YouTube say they're starting download and just sit there for hours.

    I really have no idea what's going on here, but this is a fairly serious problem. I need to be able to install apps that I previously paid for!! Anybody had this happen to them or know of a possible fix?

    Also, on a slightly unrelated note, the ALT Lock key on the slide-out keyboard doesn't work. Not sure if this has been reported or not.

    1) have you installed Gapps? The latest version can be found here: http://goo-inside.me/gapps/gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip
    2) the ALT-lock key is an issue that cannot be fixed, because it is part of the blur framework. Since all of the blur framework has been removed, it cannot be mapped anymore.

    Of course I've installed Google apps, how else would I have even gotten the Market app?

    Hey, I'm just trying to think of different things that could be happening here.

    I know it probably sounds like it won't help, but try backing up everything on your SD card, formatting the card, then transfer everything back. Maybe it's an issue with the SD card. (I know, most apps install onto the phone not the SD card, but I've heard of this working in weirder situations.)

    Also, do you have the market fix installed? If not, Google "Gingerbread Market fix". It's an apk file that you can install. run the app once, then you can delete it. You may need to also wipe data from the market after the fix.

    I ran that, still nothing. I can't even install FREE apps. Literally nothing works. Oh, and it's not the SD card. I've tried unmounting the card and then attempting to download, same error. And yes, I also ran the Market Fix. Nothing is working!!! Things like this make me want to go back to the stock ROM

    Have you tried running Fix Permissions?

    Hmm, it appears to be related to my account. If I add another gmail account that I haven't purchased any apps from, it works fine to download free apps... the problem is, what about the ones I bought? Plus, I'd like to be able to use my primary account without having to keep switching them..

    Time to talk with the big G I think. I'd send Google's support team an email or something. (If you can figure out how to... I've never had to do so.) If it's an account issue, idk how else you could remedy that.
