    I have searched and cannot find the issue that I am experiencing that others have been having issues with.

    The problem that I am having is that my apps will all download, but they will not install. I have had them sit there saying they are installing for ever i.e. 5 hours. When I just give up and cancel the install.

    It seems like the apps download properly, but they do not want to install. Sometimes I can get them to install after 3 or 4 attempts but other times it just wont work.

    This is happening to free apps and also paid apps that I purchased.

    I am not sure what the issue is at all but hopefully someone knows of a fix that can help me out here.

    Apps (free and purchased) will download, but they will not install. Contiously installs and does not progress.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think I am having a similar problem. I can install the live wallpaper but it isn't applied and when I search for it under wallpapers it isn't there either. Maybe I am doing something wrong?

    I have, I have done that 3 times so far. The issue is that when I do that, it works but then some how I end up getting back to the same state I was in before. Where it will download and try to install and just sits there trying to install.

    So not sure what is going on, and having to reinstall the ROM every time I want to install an app is just a big PITA.

    I am trying to figure out if this is a LM ROM issue or Froyo problem.
    I think I may end up trying to go to BB, Chevy, or CM just to try it out and see if I get the same problems. I love LM and well hope I can figure this out.

    So any other tips or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

    Appears to be an issue with FroYo.
    I've had similar probs with other ROMs too.
    All the apps show they are downloading..but the progress bar never moves.
    I just cancel the download and re-install from the market right away.
    Definitely not a proper fix, but it works.
    Another thing that works for me is I simply reboot the phone after flashing the ROM..upon rebooting the downloads begin automatically again and this time they actually successfully install.

    I had these problems, then I wiped data/cache and installed the rom again and all my issues were fixed. Well except for permission errors, older superuser fixed that tho. Also be careful with titanium, you dont want it restoring the problem

    My problem is that it wont install. It downloads no problem but wont install. Even if I cancel the DL and try installing again still wont work at all.

    I am not sure what it could be at all but I have reflashed and wiped and hope this time it works and last a little bit longer this time around.

    If you are just restoring old apps using titanium that should not bring back the problem, or will it?

    reinstalling rom and wiping data/cache works initially but it eventually reverts back to the same problem again unfortunately.

    I am also having this problem where the apps download but get stuck when installing. I have even tried to go into the Downloads folder on the SD card and installl the APK file from there, but it gets stuck installing the app that way as well.
    My apps were installing just fine for several days and now this problem has come up. Not sure why.

    I am trying to reinstall the ROM to see if that fixes anything.

    Got it fixed on my Droid

    Just posting my results for anyone else that is having this problem.

    I finally got my Market install problem fixed!!

    I had tried several fixes that I've seen various places online:
    1) *#*#2432546#*#*
    - This did not fix the problem
    2) Reinstalling the vending_preferences.xml
    - This did not fix the problem
    3) Removing payment & address from Google Checkout and setting it up again
    - This did not fix the problem.

    I had success with rebooting into Recovery and wiping the /cache partition.
    This seems to have fixed the issue as my downloads/installs are working. It's possible that there was a combination of some of the other fixes above that also needed to be done along with the cache wipe, but I don't know for sure.

    I think I can concur with this. I cannot remember what I did with my last setup other than I wiped everything via the recovery and then also when i installed I wiped as well.

    Knock on wood.....everything is downloading and installing fine.

    If I can remember which exactly I did I will post. However I believe silverhack and I did pretty much the samething in his step with recovery.

    I've had this problem too, but it seems to only occur when I use titanium to restore my apps. If I let Froyo's auto-restore feature do its thing, every download after that goes by smoothly--downloads and installs the apps nicely. But when I use titanium and download another app I run into problems.

    the problem is most likely because the app is themed and installed in a different place than where the market installs apps. use titainum backup to uninstall the app then get it off the market
