    Lately Ive been having problems installing apps from the market, it will download them fine but will hang at the "installing..." phase indefinitely. At first I thought it was a problem with CM6 since thats when it first occured, I kept messing with it (reflashes, installed the market fix, etc) and decided to go back to my Kangerade backup which worked fine for a day or so then it started happening there too.

    I flashed back to 2.0.1 via sbf and downloaded to apps just fine (rom manager and license), then it started to act up again and hang when I downloaded root explorer. Although it just (slowly) downloaded and installed astro file manager.

    Is anyone else having these problems?

    While it's "hung", go back to the product page in the market. Tap Cancel Download. If the button changes to Install, tap it. It should then install. Once in a while I've had to do it three times. Usually it installs on the second attempt.

    You can safely assume it will be fixed when CM6 is officially released.

    Half the time im unable to cancel it, and the odd thing is its happened on other roms and versions also. Now it seems to work for the moment.

    Ditto

    Same exact problem going on with me. I've tried every ROM and it just got so bad it won't restore any of my apps, recognize apps on my SD, OR download from the Market - so I'm absolutely stuck! UNrooting seems to be my only option, as much as I'd hate doing that! Nothing works, though!

    it downloaded 2 apps when i was on 2.0.1 then started to stall again. I kept trying CM6 and flashed back to my kangerade recovery and it did it there too then a few hours later i flashed the CM6 recovery and now everything installs fine but some apps are missing in the market even after installing the market fix :-/

    I lied, nothing wants to install again. This is extremely annoying, clearing the cache via settings > apps > market or via cachecleaner doesnt seem to fix the problem at all.

    Market wont update/download apps

    I have the exact same problems. Tried all suggestions. Happening regardless of the ROM that I am on. Looking for a fix.
