    Hi!

    I was having apps hang on download from the appbrain market app. This was during an appbrain update. So I uninstalled appbrain. The downloads pending went through, but the appbrain update is now hanging in the downloads from the Android Marketplace. It just says "downloading." I can't kill the process. I have rebooted the phone, manually killed the process. I get this message: "Sorry! The application Market (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." Then "Force Close." I want appbrain back, I love the service, but I don't know what to do.

    I have a Droid 2.

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem on HTC HERO running FroydVillain 1.5.

    Managed to stop Appbrain downloading process by going into settings>applications>manage applications, then select Market and clear data. When i went back to market, Appbrain downloading had stopped. My problem is tha now nothing downloads or updates.

    Same message as metadog from a failed update to two apps. By trial and error I did a long press on each app that was hanging. A pop up gave two options, the second being cancel download (not the cancel at the bottom of screen). It worked as advertised. Then I just re selected the app in the market and re downloaded it.

    Your mileage may vary, but worth a try! (hope it works for you)
