    Hello all, I was trying to check the market for any available updates and noticed that its not working. It will only show one app in the start up screen and when I go to the download folder it says it is empty. I just used the market earlier today and it worked fine anyone else having this problem?

    Don't know if this is the same problem you are experiencing, but earlier today when I used the market with my wifi connection on and tried to open downloads the only apps that came up were gmail and sky map. I cleared cache and data for the market then but still they were the only apps to come up. Was probably about 20-30 minutes later I turned off wifi and tried again over 3G and all my apps were there, and its been fine since... might have been a problem on their end.

    ^^This.

    I had the same problem after loading BB v0.5. As Lt. Commander Riker stated the problem fixed immediately after:

    (in case you don't know how to find)---settings > manage applications > all > scroll and select Market > I cleared data and cache and then force stop. Bingo

    I didn't have to reset wifi as I wasn't connected to a network and wifi was off anyway.

    I don't know if it has been an issue with market itself, or something on our phones, but I have seen a few complaints about it here lately.

    Anyway, I had this issue on my UD8 install, and clearing data/cache didn't help. I ran the fix permissions script in Rom Manager (and UD8 settings extras) and that seemed to fix it. If you're not rooted/ROM'd however, I don't think you can do a permissions fix. But then, if you are running an OTA install, that would just lead me more to believe it is the market itself having problems.

    Thanks for the help. This worked perfect for me. I had installed bb v0.5 but the market had worked for a whole day on wifi and 3g but just stopped working. Thanks again for the help and the instructions.

    I had been having trouble downloading an update for Dropbox for about three days through the market. I just cleared data/cache and it updated for me. The rest of my updates have been working fine.
