    For some reason i can not install angry birds and this other puzzle game. I've cleared the market data several times but for some reason i cannot install them. Any ideas of what is wrong?

    Let's start with the dumb questions first. :)

    Have you rebooted? What kind of issues are you having with the install? It wont' start? Hangs? Stalls?

    rebooted several times i've tried over a few days. It downloads then when it goes to install it says "Install unsuccessful". And it is just these two applications. I can install other applications but for some reason these two just choose not to install.

    ok so i just used that site and then downloaded the apk to my computer then uploaded it to dropbox then i used dropbox to install the apk and it still won't install. I think my Droid hates birds because the other app that wont install is a penguins of madagascar puzzle game :icon_eek:

    LOL. Prejudiced phone. That's a first one for me. :)

    It kinda sounds like you have something lingering from a previous install. Are you rooted?

    Stupid question on my part. You're posting in the Koush section, so you're probably running CM6. Right?

    I am on cm6 and I can't install angry birds either. I wish I knew why I really want to try this game.

    It downloads all the way then says install unsuccessful. I read that it needs a lot of room to install so I freed up 62mb and it still wont install. Any ideas as how to get it to work?

    Try booting into recovery and clearing your cache(s). Do not wipe system. See if that helps.

    I'm currently out of ideas. I'll see if I can brainstorm some others. Sorry!

    This is a very baffling problem. If we can't even sideload the app then there must be something about the app and the rom that don't like each other. This is so confusing o_O

    I know you guys are super loyal to your ROMs, but have you tried a different ROM?

    I have barley been loyal to ROMs latley. I have tried quite a few roms over the past months and the ones i have probably stuck to the longest were BB .04 and Sapphire 1.0, I was just trying out cyanogen because i have always heard such good things about it and wanted to give it a shot. If anyone has a good ROM recommendation i will check it out.

    What makes the nightlies different? Are they just non fully tested builds that have the newest features?
