    I'm having a problem trying to update certain apps after rooting my phone.

    I'm getting a download unsuccessful message.

    I posted this thread in the rooting forum.
    http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid-x/134649-updating-apps-after-root.html

    I'm posting here so that I can rule out a possible market issue.

    Since rooting, 3 of my apps have had updates.
    Super Slot - download unsuccessful
    BatteryTime Lite - download unsuccessful
    Paper Toss - worked fine

    Can someone try to update/download super slot or batterytime lite and see if you can do it successfully?

    I doubt it's a market issue, but I wanted to rule that out.

    I also installed ad free android earlier. I have since uninstalled it, but is it possible it left the host file on the system and that's blocking the download? Do all apps get downloaded from google or do they actually get downloaded from the developer's site through the market? I'd be surprised if it's the 2nd one, so that's probably not the issue either.

    lexluthor,

    I tried to download "Super Slot" and am getting "Download unsuccessful" in the notification area. It starts showing the downloading status and then burps-up the notification.

    I also tried "BatteryTime Lite" with the same result.

    I am not (yet) rooted. :)

    Hope this helps.

    Wow, yes, that helps a lot!

    I can't believe that the 2 apps that updated right after I rooted are having market issues.

    Very weird, but I guess I didn't fubar my phone!

    Thanks for testing.

    Anyone else want to make triple sure?

    Probably not. Doesn't look like a rooting issue now. Looks like a market issue. I only started this thread to rule that in/out.

    Batterytime lite works now. Super slot still doesn't.

    At least it's not my phone.

    I hope they will finish downloading for me, lol! I've got two orphan apps that I can't get rid of...hopefully, a successful install / uninstall will nuke 'em. :D

    edit: BatteryTime Lite gone...probably just have wait a little longer for Super Slot :)
