    phone is a box stock ALLY.

    i have Duke Nukem 3D which hasnt had ANY problems. after I got the update yesterday to VB, the Duke icon disappears after i turn the phone off & on.

    i have reinstalled Duke about 10 times, deleted its folder on the SD card, uninstalled Duke from the market & also using the droid uninstall.


    nothing seems to keep the icon on the screen. when i turn the phone off & on, i dont have the Duke icon anymore, its a green droid square with a file name and when i press that to run Duke I get a "force close" message.




    HELP!!! :eek:

    so i did the privacy------> wipe data to factory reset.

    and the problem is still there. so either Duke Nukem 3D is broken at the market level
    or version B upgrade is going to prevent me from storing the app properly.

    I'm not 100% sure how apps work, but if the version # has changed in the latest build (which it has), perhaps the apps need to update to reflect this change.

    Yeah, my free caddie GPS app doesn't seem to work with the update. Oh well, no big loss for me.

    I had the same problem with OrbLive and MLB At Bat. Coincidentally, these are the only two apps that stored themselves in /data/app-private instead of /data/app. I got things working by completely uninstalling both apps, restarting, then reinstalling from scratch. At that point, use Titanium to backup both apps, and uninstall again. Then pull the .apk files from the Titanium backups and install with adb install (which installs to /data/app). Both work fine now ...
