    Application install failure

    I was hoping someone could shed some light on this highly annoying issue that I'm having. Starting last week I have been having issues installing/updating apps on my Verizon Droid. They download but get the "Installation unsuccessful" error. I have tried everything I could think of and have searched the forums and nothing seemed to work. If anyone has any ideas please send them my way. I'm getting desperate.


    Below is a list of what I have tried so far so as to not waste anyone's time:
    -Cleared cache and data from market in manage applications
    -Unmounted and remounted SD Card
    -Power down, pulled then reinserted SD card
    -Cleared cache/data of app that I was trying to update
    -for a new app I was trying I had a friend with a MyTouch 3G slide try to install it and it worked fine on his phone

    Thanks,
    Knoxxiv

    First to the forum.

    Second, you said Verizon Droid, can we assume you're talking about the A855? Also, since you posted here in the stock section, we can assume that your phone is not rooted, right?

    Now, which apps exactly are you having trouble with?

    Thanks for replying. That's correct A855 not rooted. A couple apps I was having an issue updating were movies by flixter and alchemy. Angry Birds won't install. Funny thing is I was able to install the updated YouTube app with no issues.

    One last thing, the apps are downloading fine, just failing on the install, right?

    Well, I'm going to kind of shoot into the dark here, because I've been rooted since root was woot, but I've read that you can go through your phone's menu system to settings -> applications -> manage applications select the 'all' tab at the top. Then go to the applications that won't update and clear the data and cache for them.

    As for Angry birds, hmmm. Maybe go ahead and clear data and cache for the market and try that, especially if clearing data and cache for the individual apps above doesn't work to update them.

    good luck

    The apps download fine, I get error on install. I already tried clearing the cache and data with no luck.. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Hmmm, well you could try uninstalling the apps that won't update and then download and install the updated version. Otherwise I guess that's all I have, short of rooting the phone, but you'd still have to get your hands on the .apk files for the apps in question. Sorry. Although there was a widespread market problem yesterday and might still be going on today . .

    good luck

    I uninstalled and reinstalled a few. That seemed to work but it shouldn't be necessary. Oh well. I'm still having an issue installing angry birds though. Never have been able to get that to work. Downloads then says unsuccessful install

    Go into setting: applications: select all up top and go into market and clear data.

    Unfortunately I have tried that several times already with no success. I also just did it again with my fingers crossed this time. Still no luck.

    Does it just do this over 3g or have you tried it with wifi as well?
