    For the past few weeks I have been trying to get updates on some of my games like angry birds, angry birds seasons, and a few others. Everytime I try it will download but then it fails to install because of an unknown failure. I did root my phone a short time back but only a few of my game updates are failing, don't know if the root is the reason. If anyone has come across this problem any help if greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem. My phone have never been rooted! So I don't think that's the problem. If any body knows what the problem is I would appreciate some help. Only solution right now is to unistall the app and reinstall.

    Was looking around for the file, but don't know where to search for it. I looked in the files program but then I couldn't figure out where it would be in there. Is there a way to search it, what am I missing?

    Try deleting it using your computer with your phone connected using USB.
