    since i installed cm 7.1 rc liberty and upgraded to 2.3.4, i am unable to install any apps from the official android market that are larger than a couple of mb's. i dont have this problem when downloading apps from the amazon app store. i get the error stating i have insufficient space. i have over 60mb free on the phone and 3gb free on its sd card. any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Look for S2E in the Market. It is made for CM7 to move and store apps on the SD cards and works great. I had over 30 apps downloaded and still had around 85MB free of internal storage. It will solve your problem.

    i have the same issue with a 2.2 froyo rooted captivate.

    i am not going to list my memory capacities as i have murdered all bloatware, and trust me, i have plenty of memory, internal, internal sd card, and the external sd card i have installed. i do not have a large amount of installed apps from market; maybe 10.

    i am using busybox donate, titanium backup * root, titanium pro key * root, superuser and superuser elite.

    bottom line, the INSUFFICIENT SPACE error, for me, was and is false. for me, it was a false error, and yet i still get it everytime i download an app. i have cleaned cache, i have forced closed all apps possible, bla, bla, bla. nothing worked.

    i found, after wasting many hours of useless efforts, if i just turned my phone off, removed my battery, and then on again, every new app i downloaded was and is successful. this has worked every time i got the false error message.

    why? i do not know. as i said, i have very few apps, and all apps (except titanium backup which is not supposed to be on your sd card per the developer who i directly asked) that i do have are on my external sd card.

    the error is a lie, at least for me, as i have plenty of internal memory.

    edit: it just dawned on me - since i close a lot of unused/running apps, and using the samsung stock task manager app, in addition to another cache cleaner, and killing/closing apps, i may be closing an internal app which may tell market if there is enough space available.

    i think this may be why the insufficient space error comes up, since when i turn my phone off, then back on, i do NOT close any apps, i just go directly into market and try to download a new app, and this has always worked... i do not know what app i have closed or killed that causes the insufficient space error.....

    myself - i would rather end needlessly running apps and save my ram, battery and cpu, and the few times i download a new app, i just turn off, then on, and problem solved.

    for me, i don't mind the extra steps since overall i prefer to force close unneeded apps..
