    Wondering if anyone else is having the same problem. Anything larger then about 25 mb does not install for me. I tried to install pocket legends first and it downloads but gives me an error that i do not have enough space. I also tried third blade just to make sure it wasn't just pocket legends. Is anyone else noticing the same thing, everything else seems to work perfectly, i don't know if i should exchange or not

    Probably should note im not rooted, have tried to pull the battery, and performed a factory reset and confirmed that i have more then 8gb of free space on the internal storage and 12gb on the SD card

    I've had this type of problem with my D1 occasionally and was able to fix the problem by deleting the ".android.secure" file from the sdcard.

    Successfully installed for me. Also, I just rooted a little earlier. I don't know if that matters or not.

    Yeah, I think I'm having the same issue. Ive tried installing Drift Mania several times and after I play it, its not in my installed apps anymore and I have to re-download/install it. Its just over 25 mb as well.

    No problems here and I have installed 2 apps in excess of 1 GB, via WIFi.

    If it helps anyone else out I found the cause to be all the bloatware running. I killed all the running programs that i didnt need and was able to install.
