    I recently Upgraded my captivate to 2.2. all paid apps seemed to work and download just fine, And all the free apps i had i re downloaded without any problems. but when i went to download Reckless Racing again it will not let me install it.

    It downloads fine, And when it tries to download it. it gives me an error saying installation unsuccessful.


    I tried all the fixes relating to that problem like clearing cache on the market app via. settings > applications > etc.. etc....

    if anyone can help me id really appreciate it thanks.

    I had a similar problem and fixed it by not only clearing the data of the market app and download manager (and appbrain since I use that) but also putting my androidID back to what it was supposed to be after changing the ROM. (need to get your androidID prior to upgrading, or flash back to stock to retrieve it)

    There's an androidID changer on the market (assuming you can download it) and you need to be rooted as well.

    If you need to flash back to stock, you can download androidID changer at that point, then back it up with titanium backup. Or if you're using the Cognition ROM, it comes with the ID changer pre-installed. (though you still need to know what your original ID is)

    Also, on the subject of appbrain, also had to go to the website and delete the extra phone lists it created, apparently for the different androidID's I had each time I changed ROM's.

    Thanks Joedv. I not only cleared cache from the download manager and market apps but i had to do a full reset factory reset on 2.2 which sucked because once i upgraded to 2.2 I set up all my facebook contacts on my phonebook and downloaded some new free apps and such. now i have to do it all over. lol

    and on the subject im not running any roms or such i should have pointed that out. I did the one click install of 2.2.. idk if that was a bad idea since everyone thats anyone in this forums has the Cognition Rom?

    It's worth mentioning for the original poster as well as any readers that 2.2 has not actually been released for the Captivate. What the OP installed was, in effect, just another hacked-up custom ROM... this one based upon buggy, leaked developer beta code never meant to be used by end-users in its current state.

    Hi Everyone,
    Most of what ya'll are talking about I don't understand :) I am having the problem of not being able to download anything from the Market. So far I tried to download the free version of Talking Tom Cat. It shows the download icon at the top left of my screen, but that's all that happens. I pull down the screen and it says download unsuccessful or installation unsuccessful. I've not been able to download anything - I just purchased the phone.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Thanks guys

    It works. First I have installed appbrain then I installed Androidid changer. After these two installation all of my application keep installing in SD card which is not happening in earlier case.
