MARKET INSTALL / APPS 2 SD / SD CARD FAIL??? PLEASE HELP!!! (No, I'm not rooted.)
I searched this problem out far & wide. I've checked every Droid, Android, and even PHANDROID forum I could find via Google. I now am leaving for work soon and have become frustrated and desperate enough to create my own thread describing the problem and what I've tried.
Let me first say this: I have no greater confidence in any Android community than Android Central's. Represent! Therefore, I know I won't have to go to any other forums presenting this thread for a solution.
That said, some background: Got my Droid at beginning of April after switching from T-Mobile and the N1 (Long story...) I love VZW & the Droid "Prime", though, and had lots of fun with it - especially after rooting it and being introduced to the world of ROM Manager. It became an addiction... a problem... I was clearly a flashaholic, and there wasn't much hope.
However, it got to the point that no matter what 2.2. ROM I was running, the apps in the Market (whether first time install or update) got stuck on "Installing" for eternity! When I tried force stop's, data and cache clear's and whatnot the problem simply laughed at me. I got so frustrated after a while that I just UNrooted and decided to stick with 2.1 till the official OTA.
Well, if I said everything went right back to peachy right away I'd be lying, but to cut to the chase, since then I've received the official OTA for Froyo on my UNrooted Droid, and all has been well. Actually amazing. Flash working great!
HOWEVER, as of this thread it is doing the...same...thing. I'd installed the Apps 2 SD app in the Market and moved at least 10 apps to my SD card - ALL of which have disappeared, along with the Apps 2 SD icon. Nice, huh? What's weirder is for the first week I noticed NO issues. Apps 2 SD worked fine (didn't disappear, anyway) and the apps I'd moved were still in my launcher working well!
My SD card will not 'unmount' in settings. NOTHING updates or installs in my Market. I've removed the battery and SD card and put the phone back together several times to no avail. It's very frustrating, as now I have to figure out what I'm missing and a way to replace them. (I have tons of apps, but no crapps.)
Anyone else have anything similar? Anyone else, dare I say, have an idea of what I can do??? I'm about to throw this thing out a window!
Thanks in advance. I'd love to have it up and running 100% by tonight's podcast. Peace.
