    What causes an unsuccessful installation when you download something from the market? I have been trying to download and install several apps from the market. They download okay but immediately fail installation with no reason. I am using a droid x with up to date verizon os with no root. Any help appreciated.

    No idea why it happens, but clear the market's data/cache and reattempt to install. It should work at that point.

    Do all apps fail? If not which ones did. I have the same phone and service as you so I can take a look for you

    I did try clearing the cache but still no luck. Off the top of my head, two of the apps were slice it and rocket bunnies. Some apps have installed with no problems.
