Need help! Can't install anything. Apps not loading correctly.
This is actually the second Atrix I've had this problem on. I'm wondering if someone smarter than me with Android OS has had any experience or knows how to fix this.
It all started when I was moving some apps over the "media area." One of them didn't complete/move and gave me an error. Suddenly nothing that had been moved over to the media area was accessible. None of those programs would load and after a reboot, they didn't show up in the app list. Also almost all of the listed apps kept saying "calculating" under how much memory they used. Plus the option to move any program to the "media area" was no longer available - meaning it was grayed out. Several reboots did not correct the problem.
I factory reset and the result is that I couldn't download/install anything from the market. I would press the install button on any app and it would just sit there and do nothing.
I tried to unmount the "media area" but that hangs too and sometimes gives me an error.
However, I can use a file explorer and actually see files in the "media area" move files around, copy, and delete files. So it doesn't seem to be an issue with the internal storage/media area. I don't know enough about android to figure it out, but seems to be a problem with how the apps are registered. Is there a way to fix it?
I've also already tried to flash the original sbf and that didn't fix the problem. I've also tried the restore android/wipe cache area when you hold the down volume plus power button. I've run out of suggestions and am looking for more before I have to take another Atrix back. Granted I had a LOT of apps loaded, but there shouldn't be a problem with that. Also after the flash the apps in the apps manager keep saying "calculating..." on their size.
