    I'm having an issue with the market. Whenever I download something from the market, it well repeatedly re-download the app over and over and over, even if the installation was successful. I'm tried Data/Factory resets many times and wiped cache completely so I could start from scratch but I get the same problem every time. This happened when switching from the Cyanogenmod /Jrummy to Bugless ROM. I've been searching all over the forums but I'm just about ready to give up.

    From what I've seen, everyone seems to be having the same problem. It started for me earlier today. I think it's something on Google's end.

    I think one of my files may have got messed. I don't know which one or how. I do know that the apps keep downloading themselves and it very irritating. I don't know how to solve this. Could it be the market apk file?

    I'm not sure how to advise. Earlier this morning, the market notified me that I had six updates. Five downloaded without a problem. The maps download was not successful but a second attempt was successful.

    I deleted the market updater apk and that seems to have fixed.

    If you don't mind sharing-- what were you doing that caused you delete the apk and where did you find the replacement?

    I was switching from Cyanogen to Bugless v1. I couldn't make up my mind between the two so I kept switch back and forth about 5x in one day trying out different things on each ROM and comparing the two. I guess there was a market update or something that must have happened as I was switching over later during the day and the phone didn't like it.

    Interesting! Were you using rom manager to switch roms?

    Yea it was pretty goofy. I wasn't using ROM Manager at the time. I had a back-up of a clean slate Cyanogen ROM and then the kernel, ROM, and Theme for for BB v1. I was using Clock Works recovery at the time, so I didn't need to name everything update.zip. I could pick a zip file straight from the sd card. So i would mess with BB for a bit then when I wanted to switch over, I would just recover Cyanogen.

    Grasping at straws -- I wonder if switching between SPR and rom manager caused the issue?

    I highly doubt that because I was using Cyanogen for a while with no market issues at all. Part of the reason for the switch was because of ROM Manager. As much as it was convenient, and simple, I just didn't like. I prefer going into the backups to put in new ROMs and what not. I guess that's because my teacher always stressed that we work in the console whenever we did anything Linux related.

    Agree 100% with doing things yourself!

    The only reason I installed rom manager was to get an understanding so I would be able to respond for the Rescue Squad.

    Like you, I've given serious consideration to removing. When I switch roms, I flash the alternative and revert back to SPR.
