must have gotten to it before the servers were slammed. my phone gets 5 mb/s down on my wifi too, so no way it should have taken that long. whatever! i have it.

my Droid X (2.2 stock) is having an issue. I will use this post to organize what the issues are then try to fix it. Feel free to butt in with your two cents.

Current state:
Cannot install apps (new or already purchased).
Cannot uninstall apps.
Apps on SD card are listed by ROM name in the setting menu.
The same apps show as not installed on my DX when I try to open them. I removed the shortcuts.
Core apps and widgets installed on the phone still run.
This all applies to apps from both the Amazon and Google app stores.

What happened? Last week I checked the Amazon Market app for updates like I have done before. I started queuing updates and eventually selected all 30ish apps that needed it. Later the device told me some apps could not be updated (actually all of them failed). Since then I am able to purchase apps from either outlet.

On the Google Android Market the download does not begin when I hit "Ok." From the Amazon store it seems that the apk files download then the process gets stuck in the installation step. Likewise the uninstall process dead-ends in the same way.

Short of a factory reset, I would like to get my apps running again. It seems the SD card is working as I can read/write files on it. I see photos, downloads, and stored app data where they should be. In the meanwhile I will try to figure out what broke this functionality and try to reverse it. So far I tried unmounting the card then resetting the device. I had to toggle the Verizon connection today because it was not properly connecting (1-2 signal bars when my other phone showed 3G).

Thanks for reading.

http://forums.androidcentral.com/general-help-how/106187-cannot-install-uninstall-apps.html

pulled the SD card; running an update. Let's see what happens next.

re-edit: I now have 2.3.3. Now to re-insert the SD card.

That's really strange. Haven't heard of that issue before. My guess is it has something to do with the SD card but it really is just a guess. Luckily, your contacts, calendar, and whatnot should be backed up in the cloud should you need to reset it.

get apps for 10 cents today


Soundhound, Minecraft, Sketchbook Mobile, and more.

Some of the apps have been free on the Amazon store in the past, but I missed a couple. You might want to check to see if you already have the app before buying it again from a different store.

Here's a link for the OnLive app. I searched on my phone and did not see it, so I had to search in the desktop version.

Exact same situation for me. Be sure to login so you get Lego Batman for free.

I did the trial of Dirt 3 (over 3G) and the onscreen controls weren't absolutely horrible. They were by no means ideal but they worked. I'm sure it'd be sick using a 360 controller if you have one of the tablets with a full sized USB port... and if you had HDMI mirroring turned on, you basically have a portable console.

There's no way I'm going to survive the rest of the 10 billion downloads celebration without having to buy a new SD card.    These are some unbelievable apps they're letting go for only ten cents a piece.  I've noticed the previous day's apps are still available at the sale price, but only for 1 extra day, it seems.

If you haven't played Game Dev Story yet, then get it now.  It's a no-brainer for only a dime!
