    YES!!!! I am going insane. I can use the online market, but no matter what I try (and I have tried everything) the market keeps saying "download unsuccessful."

    I've already tried clearing the caches, SBFing, etc. And now even when I flash back to Liberty 2.0.1, it still will not work.

    Does anyone know what we can do to solve this? PLEASE advise....will a factory reset make a change? Is there anything I can do in Root Explorer to solve this?

    Thank you so much to anyone that can help.

    It's a new version of Market with a more strict "filtering" settings menu. My wife has the D1 not rooted, I am D2 Liberty. Her market "settings" menu as 5 choices, Everyone, Low maturity, Medium maturity, High maturity, and Show all apps. Mine only has Mature, Teen, Preteen, and All.

    I have looked for the new version but can't find it.:icon_evil:

    I can't download some apps that are rated at a level that doesn't fall into any of the 4 ratings on the version of the Market that is on my phone. One example is Tune In Radio. It's not even in the search results for me, but came up fine on her phone.

    FIXED!!!

    Go to Market, then click on the menu button. Next, click "Settings". Once there, click on the LOCK (top left corner). It will ask you to set a 4-digit pin. Make sure you set one YOU WILL NOT FORGET!!! If you forget it, you'll never be able to change the filters.

    Once you've set the pin, back completely out of Market. You have to back out to shut it down - don't just hit the Home key.

    Once out of Market, go back in and it should load like it wasn't running before. Now go back into menu, settings again.

    This time, click the drop down arrow. It should prompt you for your 4-digit pin (the one you DIDN'T FORGET!)

    After entering your pin, you will have to hit the drop down arrow again and this time it will let you in.

    Now select "Mature" and hit the OK button.

    Again, back completely out of market, and go back in.

    All should be good and the missing apps will reappear in searches.

    Try the solution in my earlier post. I am not sure if your issue is related, but it's worth a shot. I couldn't download certain apps due to the new "filter" feature.

    This is not working for me. I'm trying to set it to "All Apps" and it keeps resetting to "Mature", which isn't giving me all apps. I did it just like to said. It doesn't appear to be actually shutting down when I back out, so maybe that's it....

    I contacted Andriod Market Support directly about my marketplace issues, (FC's and failed downloads every time, since upgrading to GB) and their answer worked for me, so I'll copypasta part of it here in case it helps:

    If you have any apps with a rating not supported by the previous version you might have to wait until Market re-updates itself, but it worked for me for all my apps.
