    I rooted (twice thanks Verizon 2.1 upgrade) and upgraded to 1.o ghz Froyo. I tried to download Listen as I had it before the root and now it says I have to set up an account.... My Gmail account is already in the phone. Anyone else have this problem?


    Thanks in advance

    Nope. Did you do a complete wipe?

    I've re-installed Google Listen over many 2.2 ROM installs, and have never had any issues similar to yours...

    Using RSD LIGHT to go back to 2.01 and re-root, re-Froyo

    That's a bit drastic.


    You need to be more specific. When you launch Google Listen does it have your google account down there ready to check? If not, there is obviously a problem.

    I went back to 2.01 and downloaded google listen. Set it up and it worked. rooted to 2.1 it worked. Now under 2.2 it doesn't work. Asks me for a Google account. It is already in the phone.

    I don't know if it is my Froyo or the over clocking. I got the kernel here. The Irony is I use nandroid to go back to rooted 2.1 and not only dies listen work.. I get maps 4.3 back. I couldn't get maps 4.3 under Froyo2

    Have you tried entering your Google account info when it asks you for it? As for maps 4.3 there has been a work around posted in a number of places about that. There is even a thread about it here.

    Got Maps4.3 working

    Listen says.. "Google Accounts
    listen requires a gmail account to sink with reader.google.com.
    Please add a new account in system Preferances"

    no place to add a google account


    You have to put in a google account to have the phone. I have 2 and put both in... still not working

    I'm running NexBeast 0.1 and I installed Google Listen, signed into my account, and I am streaming an NPR Newscast as I type.

    Just thought I'd give my experience. :D

    Maybe you could try uninstalling your first Google Listen through terminal and then re-install.

    Instead of using terminal, did you try going into settings, manage applications, listen, and then clear data?

    Or try uninstalling Google Listen, then in manage applications menu - All - Market - clear cache - clear data and then re-install Google Listen.

    If that doesn't work try using Root Explorer (or Astro File Manager in GOD mode)... mount R/W then search for listen and delete all references to it, then reboot and re-install from the marketplace.

    No solution, but did want to add that I had the same issue on mine and saw postings from others having it as well. I tried a couple of ROM's and both had the same problem. I did try clearing out the settings, but still had no luck. Was hoping that the last patch would have fixed the problem, but I have not had a chance to restore a backup of a froyo install yet and test it.
