    this isnt the same as all the others, i rooted my phone and was able to download apps for a few minutes, after that all my apps would sit at "starting Download" i would wait hours for it to work but nothing ever changed. i paniked and reset factory settings on my phone so i only have stock apps and SU, the catch is it wont let me delete SU so my warrantee is void. also when i try to reboot recovery it looks like it will then goes black and starts normally. is there a way to remove SU or reboot recovery another way? i would be fine if the market started working again please help.

    Maybe this is internal server issue, wait a few hours to a day and see if it starts working again, i had this issue

    No there is no easier way to flash the official stock rom. the guide is step by step. if you follow it to a T you shouldn't have issues. but if you do. post in that thread what the problem is and such and i will get back to you.

    You say you have root and just stock apps and superuser so I am guessing you wanted to delete some default applications? Deleting talk.apk and talkprovider.apk has been known to cause the market to stop working.

    Hi there... first post, long time lurker.

    I know this may sound odd, but I found this on another forum. Today I reflashed Velocity .3, as I no longer wanted apps2sd, so decided to start fresh.

    Once flashed and logged in, my market was doing the same thing... I could browse it. Pick an app, and it would just sit there saying "Downloading..." Nothing at all would happen.

    What i found that worked was starting Google Talk. After coming across a post in the Droid forums, I started Talk and noted that I was not logged in. Once I did log into it, all my apps that were queued up started downloading immediately. A big relief.

    Try it.. you never know.

    Well, if you were going to go that far you could just restore to stock...

    Really, you shouldn't be making Verizon and LG foot the bill when you mess something up like that (just my opinion)...

    they will fix it and sell to someone else as pre-owned :p so they will not loose money since the phone is free for new customers

    I've noticed with Market, regarless of the ROM being used, that much of the time I have to turn my Wifi off to get anything to download and install. Also, some things will continue to say they are installing in the notification bar, but if I look at my downloads in Market again, there will be a button to open the app. If it's really still downloading or installing, there is a cancel button instead. Odd, annoying, but at least it's doable. I really think this is an issue with Android Market and not the custom roms.

    Its probably a small bug in the 2.1 OS. not to big of a deal so probably one of the smaller bugs fixed by 2.2
