    The status bar has a download notification that won't go away. I know the download is done but yet no option to clear it. I even turned the phone on and off and still doesnt go away. Anybody else have the same issue? Im thinking the only way now to clear it is to hard reset.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    That's bizarre .. Are you sure it's not one of those new Air Ads that show up in the Notification bar?

    Have you also tried a battery pull yet? Was it an app that is showing as downloaded? Perhaps uninstall and reinstall that one, if so, see if it clears it?

    In addition to the battery pull suggestion, you might also try clearing cache and data in the Market app (I'm assuming you downloaded an app from Android Market ;)), then reboot the device.

    You'll have to say yes again to the Market agreement next time you use it, of course.

    Try clearing the cache in the gmail app.

    It seemed to have cleared up by itself. Wasn't sure if it was because wifi kicked in as soon as I finally got home but wifi was the only thing that was different. Phew!

    Now I'm having this problem -- downloaded a picture in the browser and it was an unsuccessful download (don't know why). Tried it three times, so now they're queued up to download.

    The notification just stays there. I've powered down several times. Upon startup, it reappears, even with no apps running.

    Any hints?

    Update -- it looks like it's scored the first download "Unsuccessful," and so that notification I could swipe away.

    Looks like I must have tried three times (stupid), because the stuck notification now indicates two attempts to download "Untitled" are in progress.

    I suppose it will time out as unsuccessful with each of them in succession. But it should have had a way for me to override it.

    I had the same problem. Only resolved once I connected to wifi
