Can't install apps/ sd apps don't load
I can not install apps anymore. It was working yesterday. For example I go do an update from market and it would not install. Also my apps loaded an sd will not load up. I did a titanium back up yesterday, but the titanium back up app does the show up. I rooted using unrevoked.

I am having the same issue here.
I have a completely stock HTC Thunderbolt.
I can access my music saved on the SD card.
But I cannot even connect it to my laptop via USB disk drive. It shows a CD drive? I cannot install/update apps at all or access my Apps to SD.
For a while when I'd reboot the phone, it'd fix the issue. Then it became every other reboot would be successful..Then less and less to no longer.
I've tried formatting the SD card, and reinstalling using USB connection...I can't seem to find anything else in the forums about what to do...HELP?!
Don't fail me now, Android folks!

You may have a problem with a file in the ".android_secure" folder on the root of your SD card.
Make sure your apps are all moved to the phone and then either with a file explorer on your phone (or windows explorer on a PC) delete the contents of the ".android_secure" folder. You may even want to delete that folder. The phone should re-create it if it is missing.
Now you should be able to move your apps back to the SD card and go back to installing / updating apps.

Then try moving the apps once the phone has restarted. You may want to delete a few that you aren't using if you are running low on memory, you could always do a Titanium Backup of those apps and then delete them so long as you have the SD card space.
