    Default Unknown Error code during application install: "-24" Help?

    Just installed JB, but a bunch of apps didn't restore (including Titanium Backup) and won't let me install from the Play Store. I can watch it download the app, but then it throws the error and won't install.


    Anyone having this issue?

    The problem is you didn't do a factory reset. This will cure the problem. I had the same thing trying to install Kindle app. Now everything works fine.

    I also just flashed a Jelly Bean ROM, and everything seemed to be working fine, except when I tried to restore Pure Calendar Widget from Titanium Backup, it froze. I figured I'd try to install it from the market, then bam, that's when I got the unknown error -24. It was only with that one app, and everything else works fine

    Same deal, I'm on Jelly Belly (3.9) and this is the first time I've attempted to restore using app2zip. It seems to affect my paid apps

    I JUST experienced this problem. I have run ICS (stock, rooted), and then moved to Vicious Jelly Bean (all versions, no issues), and I've even done Vicious CM10 Unofficial V1, no issues; but I just installed Vicious CM10 Unofficial V2 (Jelly Bean 4.1.1) and I just got this issue with trying to reinstall "Pocket - formerly Read It Later" ... but that's the ONLY app I've had this issue from.

    Every other app was fine.

    I got this issue with The Dark Knight Rises by Gameloft. Only difference is when I first bought the game it installed perfect and I played for days with no problems, then all of the sudden the game seemed to uninstall itself and I started getting the error. I am running vanirbean 5 and the game ran fine on the same ROM for a while.

    Have the same issue here when trying to install Google Maps from Google Play. Maybe there's something wrong when flashing JB on a device that has Titanium backup?
    I tried wiping the cache but still get error -24. Any advice will be appreciated!

    simply do a factory restart or completely shut down your device, it works every time

    I was getting this error also and tried the deletion of the problem apps in data/data/com.----------- and it worked great.
    If you have Rom Toolbox it is easy to get to these system files - and because Rom Toolbox has Superuser permission you can delete the files with no problem.

    Yes it is related to the factory reset thing. But if you are in the situation where you do not want to do it, then install a good file manager, give it root permission and browse to the /data/data folder and find the folder for the app. It was previously installed and the installer cannot replace it. Just delete the old folder, and install from the play store. You will be just fine.

    have fun !

    The same is true here on my Galaxy Nexus with version 4.2.1 Seems to only affect the paid versions but especially annoying because can't get it upgraded and the loss of Titanium Backup Pro disabled. The Battery Widget guy said it was probably due to a corrupted data on the phone itself.

    I have a good file manager but cannot find the data/data folder. I only have data folder and inside that is com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup. I figure if I delete that, I loose all mybackup?

    Installing the Rom Toolbox allowed me to see the data/data folder with the deviant codes that didn't allow me to re-install the program with out the error-24. Thanks for the info!
