    Hi guys. I have tried to download facebook app on my samsung s4 but keeps coming up with an error. I cant do system restore as I can not lose what I hv on here as I cant move them to my sd card. Is there anything else I can do?

    Go to Settings, Application Manager, "All" tab, and find Google Play Store. Just remember! Clearing Data will force a re-logging to Google Play, meaning it will take a while for the list of installed apps to re-populate. Don't panic (Sometimes re-booting the phone makes it faster)

    Hmmm, try to install from the play store website (you can use your phone), log in to the account your phone is synced with on your mobile browser and go here:https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...k.katana&hl=en

    Found this on xda I'm hoping it helps

    This is a common error that occurs with the Play Store sometimes after flashing ROMs without wiping data, or with an incomplete un-installation (apk corruption, etc.)

    What is it?

    Basically, there is some app data left behind from a previous installation of the app. The Play Store sees that data when trying to install the app and throws a -24 error, because it doesn't know what to do with it.

    So, how do you solve it?

    Simple to fix:
    (I'm assuming you're rooted, chances are you are if you get this error)
    - YOU'LL LOSE YOUR DATA FOR THAT APP (You would have done anyway, if it was uninstalled properly) -
    1.) Using a root file manager, go to /data/data
    2.) Find the package name of the app you're wanting to install
    (Don't know the package name? Find the app you're wanting to install on the Play Store online and it's in the URL)
    3.) Delete that folder. All of it.
    4.) Try to install your app again, it should work now
    5.) If you like, hit the thanks button

    If you're unrooted, you can try this:
    [hide]
    Run this in adb
    Code:
    adb shell rm -R -f /data/data/
    Replace with the package name of your app (if you don't know it, see above)
    [/hide]
    If that doesn't work, a factory reset is your only option, sorry
