    Hello, I have the Droid 1 and im rooted and running the newest UD 2.3.0. I have had problems with the past 2 roms including this new one with not being able to download certain apps. Those apps are ANGRY BIRDS, ADW LAUNCHER AND FIND DIFFERENCES. I can download them 100 %, but when it tries to install them, everytime it says installation unsuccesful. I have tried downloading the black market to see if that worked and it didnt.

    I went to settings/manage apps/ market and cleared the cache and data, that didnt work. I downloaded a file manager program and went into system/app to delete it from there becasue somebody on this forum told me too, i couldnt find any of of those apps in the system/app folder.

    I just flashed UD 2.3.0 like 10 minutes ago and tried to download these apps and total FAIL. I keep getting installation unsucccesful. So can somebody PLEASE help me resolve this, its getting really annoying not being able to download apps that I want. thanks so much

    To Fix ADW you need to:
    1. Download Launcher Pro
    2. Using Root Explorer (or the like), navigate to System/Apps/Launcher.apk
    3. Deleted Launcher.apk
    4. reboot phone
    5. Using Launcher Pro, go to Market, Download ADW.
    6. Ta-Da.

    For Angry Birds, I had a similar problem. Only way I could fix it was by booting into recovery and wiping data/cache multiple times and re-installing the rom. After I did that Angry Birds installed no problem.

    Good Luck.

    I don't think linda file manager has root rights so it can't be used to delete system apps.

    I just tried to download angry birds and it was successful (running UD 2.3). Unfortunately I don't know how to solve your issue though.

    Like I said... I had to do that to install ADW. But no many how many times I tried to uninstall/reinstall Angry Birds the only thing that fixed it was a boot to recovery and wiping data/cache multiple times before reinstalling. It should be noted that I use Clockwork not SPRecovery.

    Wish I could be more of a help. This was very frustrating for me when it happened.
