    When I try to download angry birds it says download unsuccessful everytime. Anyone else experience this happening or have suggestions on why it could be doing this? All other apps and games download and install just fine.

    Beta for android has been out for a while.

    Update: same thing is happening when I download google sky maps. Continuously says installation installation unsuccessful. Gives no reason or possible fix. Just won't work.

    hey bud I had the same problem although cant remember the error.

    Go into settings/applications/developementand check the usb debugging, even give the mock locations a check, go into samsung apps which is under applications and and try without wifi and with packet data....I played aroudn with these and got it to work. I really cant say if itll work for you but its not going to hurt to try. :)

    Maybe I'm being really thick here, but I can't see this in the market?

    I have a rooted Hero, running a villianrom 12. 2.1.

    *edit* Just noticed this is in the Evo forum - sorry!

    I'm surprised not one person on these forums knows about what causes this error... Seems like there's no questions that go unanswered here. But oh well. First time for everything. I have found a way to workaround the issue and install the apps. I had to unmount my SD card. I have no idea why this would make a difference as I have never installed anything to my SD card. Again, oh well. At least I got the apps working.

    I don't think it is specific to Evo owners as I have also read about it happening with other android phones as well

    1-Unmount SD Card 2-Install 3-After installation completes, Mount SD Card again.

    Was having the same issue. This worked.

    This works! Tried everything after repeatedly getting "Installation Unsuccessful". I did clear the Market cache and data once more for good measure before unmounting the SD Card.
