Hello. I had switched phones with my sister and decided to reset the Samsung GT-i5700R to factory settings as well as format the SD card. When I inputted my Gmail account and password, I went to download an app in the Market. It began to download until a notification came up: "Download was unsuccessful, please try again."
I read up on the other topics about this, and I tried the following already:
- Tested downloading Google apps to see if it was just that app, and it didn't work
- Cleared the cache of the Market application
- Cleared the data of the Download Manager application
- Force stop the app then cleared the cache/data of the above apps
- Factory reset the phone
- Signed in another Gmail account and password
If anyone has an idea, I'll be willing to try.
I have Android 1.5 as my firmware.
I don't know how or when exactly it started working, but it's fixed. I'll list what I had done in case it helps anyone.
I went to Settings > Applications
and made sure that checked Unknown Sources
. I went to slideme.org
on my phone's Browser and downloaded Fast App Installer
. Then I executed it, and it worked perfectly. I proceeded to downloading more apps from SlideME, this time onto my SD card, so that I can install them using Fast App Installer.
A couple hours later, I tried to download an app using Market and it was successful. I was able to install use it, and it was the same for all apps following it.
In the end, I believe that the phone just needed to sync completely with my account, and then Android Market. Hope this helps.
