Default Can't Stop Download

Please help!!!! I have a HTC Evo 4G, and yesterday I tried to update an application in the market. The download hung up. I have that arrow showing in the notification area, and when I bring it down, it shows the progress bar, which has the lines running through it indicating it it thinking. This has been happening for a full day now. I can't stop it. If I turn off the phone, or even do a battery pull, it resumes when the phone boots up. I have forced closed market, and still the same thing. When I click on the file, it links me to the market entry for that app, but the only choices are update and uninstall. There is no cancel download button. If I try to un-install the app, I go into a perpetual un-install loop. Is there something else I can force close that will make this horrid download go away? I am rooted, if that helps.

If you go to settings, applications, manager applications and then clear data and cache for the market it should sort it out.

I've had that happen. I'm not sure about Shotgun84's suggestion but I am sure it will work, that usually fixes most market issues.

I have solved the problem by going to the app in the Market (My Apps). When you click on the app you should have an option to cancel the download. You can then proceed to stay with the version you have, wait for it to autoupdate again, or what I do, manually update it so I know it doesn't get stuck again.

Good luck!

Thanks guys. Unfortunately, there is no option to cancel the download anymore. That button has been removed. For the record, I am still using Market v. 2, and instead of the cancel button, it says either install or update, depending on whether it is a new application, or one I am updating of course. So basically, I tried to update an app yesterday. When it hung up, I pulled down the notification area, and clicked on the download "in progress". It brought me to the market section of that app, but like I said, the cancel button was gone. Even though it was supposedly downloading the update to that app, the only choices given to me was Update and Uninstall. I even tried to uninstall the app, but that just caused the Market to hang even more, and restarting the phone only causes the download to restart. Here I am on day two, and the download is still hanging. I will try clearing Market data, and see if that helps. Thanks again!

Let us know how you make out. If it doesn't work, we'll dig around some more. BTW, this week is Guide Appreciation Week. Head on over to A N D R O I D - F O R U M : GUIDE APPRECIATION WEEK (Feb 1-7) and give a shout out to Shotgun84.

Glad your all set. Can you post which method fixed it so another user that stumbles into this thread can find the right answer.

I have Samsung galaxy S2 Android version 4.0.4. Facing similar problem. I tried downloading a .png file from gmail. The download has got stuck since 2 days .. I have tried restarting, reinserting battery..doens't work. The notification area still has the moving lines. Reading the thread, I went to Settings-->Applications--All--> Gmail..and clicked Clear cache and clear data. Then too the problem persists. Please help me.

Was able to solve it!!!! This thread has helped me...

How to end an ongoing download notification in Samsung galaxy P3100? - I have an ongoing download in the notification status that never goes away, have do you remove that notification? :: Ask Me Fast

Go to settings>applications>manage applications. then switch to the "all" tab. find download manager and force stop it.

For me, it worked with clear cache and clear data. I didn't do a force stop.
