    How much free space do you have on the phone and are you installing to the SD card or the phone's internal memory?

    Currently 73 MB. It should be set to auto I'll try setting to internal only

    Update:
    ADW Notifier FINALLY downloaded

    What's still not downloading
    Flash Player 10.1
    Google Voice Callback Free
    Light Grid Wallpaper
    SNesoid
    Gmail
    Google Search

    Now I do understand that CM always seems to run into issues with downloading official Google Apps... however other apps not working confuses me.
    Take SNesoid for example... GBcoid downloaded fine and so did GameBoid (all apps made by same developer).
    Ideas?

    That's a market issue. Try downloading them one-by-one instead of all at once, and sometimes you have to cancel the download and restart it a few times. Google is supposedly working on the issue, but don't hold your breath.

    Angry Birds does the exact same thing to me. Downloads to 100% then fails to install...pisses me off cause i am running CM6 stable...where i installed it on my girlfriends Droid that is not rooted and it worked fine

    Only thing I can think of which is what I'm gonna look into is that certain applications will not install if they are on your SD card. When I go back to Angry Birds in the market it says "manual update required"...but it is not installed on my phone, nor in my applications. So somehow it maybe got downloaded onto my SD card?

    I'm going to look through my card now..

    Sounds like it partially installed and then aborted and that's what's making it stick with the "manual update required". You'd need to know where it installed to and wipe it out with terminal commands, it sounds like.

    Thats a problem as well. I'm looking but cant find anything with Rovio's name or anything. Cant trace it. Can you locate it on your phone and possibly tell us what the file name says?

    I'd need root explorer and I'm probably the only RS member who doesn't have it. :(
