Never Ending Installing of an App
About a week ago I got my Incredible. within the first day or two (last thursday or friday) i installed the Grooveshark app. I tested it out, and I think that's when I decided to uninstall it. Well, currently for the last week it's been stuck. It shows up in the Market as "Installing" and no matter what I tried, it still shows "installing."
I've tried to go to the Market to reinstall, but the installing message shows up.
I've tried to go to the grooveshark website, but it redirects to the market and the installing message shows up.
I've tried removing the grooveshark folder I found when I connected the phone to the PC.
any ideas how to get it to stop this?
I have a feeling that might be part of the reason my battery doesn't work for as long as I think it should (I have read up on the battery info, so I know there's steps to take to get it to perform better, but I still want this app to figure itself out so I can reinstall it.)

can you install other apps say something like angry birds or does that stall as well? If it does stall then it is probably an issue with the android secure file on your SD card and that can be fixed easily enough. Following the steps laid out in this thread.

If you don't want to download astrid to do the deleting then just connect your phone to your computer access the disk drive for your SD card find the . android folder and delete it that way.

I'm having the same issue with an application installation never ending. The difference is, it's installing directly to the phone. Just for grins, I did delete the secure file on my SD card. Of course that didn't fix it. Any ideas how to crash this install?

An easy fox for this problem is to go into manage applications, click the All tab, select Market, then hit clear data. You wont lose anything, it just requires you to agree to the market terms the next time you launch it.
