    Everything wen't perfect before/after rooting my phone.
    But on a day, when i wanted to install a game from the market, it downloads, but i get the error: Installation failed.

    It works when i unmount my SD card and install, then move it to my SD with apps2sd

    Buti hate it that i constantly have to unmount/mount my sd when i want to install something...

    I've tried to set de default installation location to external, but it doesn't help..

    And i'm not familiar with flashing or upgrading or stuff like that, but any one any help?

    Thx, Bert

    There are folders on your SD Card called android_secure and LOST.DIR. Do they have any data in them?

    If you delete those folders then reboot your phone, you'll lose the data associated with those apps (and the apps as far as I'm aware), but that should resolve the problem.

    Take a backup of them before hand, just to be on the safe side.
