    I've got a Captivate I got last weekend running 2.2 Froyo (Designgears) and rooted using z4root.

    I did apply OCLF but I undid and uninstalled it yesterday.

    Today: Downloaded several apps, all good.

    Tonight: Can't download any apps, says downloading, I get the small download icon flash up top screen but app never downloads.


    If I go to systems/application settings/market and uninstall the 2.12 update I can download apps until I close the marketplace for the first time.


    What have I broken? BTW: I have NOT removed any ATT software or Google software

    They download if I clear the Market back to 1.82 I believe, but once on first run it auto updates to 2.12

    So I can download all the apps I want right after I revert to 1.82, but if I close the marketplace and reopen it doesn't download anything.

    I get the "downloading" icon at the top left for a split second then nothing. No message, no nothing.

    Worked less than 4 hours ago

    Looking around a lot of people are having issues with market; I'm running Cog 2.3b6 (froyo 2.2), and my wife is running the leaked froyo and both of our markets work perfectly. I wonder if this is an issue with 2.1? Also have you guys tried connecting over wifi?

    I'm on WiFi, tried 3G too.

    I'm just running the leaked Froyo that's been rooted with z4, installed some apps from the official marketplace not 4 or 5 hours ago.

    Like I said, I can only download if I revert the Market back to the old version, and then only can download apps during that 1 session in Market unless I revert again.

    Can I stop Market from updating in any way

    I had an update to AppBrain Market today and I noticed in the comments that a LOT of people are complaining that the Market isn't working, especially after this update. I decided not to update, but I haven't tried to download anything since then. I don't know if the two are related, but it seems that it is more of a problem with the Market itself. The new version of the Market was mentioned as being suspect.

    Someone broke something. :eek:

    Seems to be working again. Rebooted phone a couple of times, cleared Market a few times.

    Verified it's at 2.12, killed Market, reopened it and had a successful download so I think I'm OKAY.

    *whew*
