Missing Apps from Marketplace post patch

    I did a hard reset and then upgraded my firmware. I then went to re-install all of my previous applications and noticed that some were missing from "My Downloads". I then went and did a search to locate them in the marketplace and got no return, as if the application doesn't exist any more.

    This happened for the following applications...

    NBA Lite

    I then soft reset (restarted) my phone but got the same result. Anyone else have this issue?

    Posting this to the Hero forum I see that both the Droid Eris and Moment forums have similar threads.

    Good glad I'm not the only one. I can't find SU File Manager & Terminal 3.06 that I just bought yesterday and I didn't have it backed up yet. :mad:

    I've restarted, I've re-installed the market app, I don't know what else to try. I've tried the barcode for the app itself and the market tells me it's not there. Lame.

    Add Military Madness to the list. I hadn't bought it yet - waiting for the MR so I could update as necessary - But it's gone. Even tried the barcode on Androlib, game there but not in market:mad:

    Seabreeze: I just did a search for "TV", and no tv.com here... Anyone else?

    Update: I just did a test scanning androlib and 7 out of 10 of the first paid apps I tried were not found. SOMETHING is going on...and it's not cool.

    It would be cool if HTC got rid of programs that were reported to keep the phone awake and those programs were removed until the developer fixes them.

    One can dream right?

    Seems to only affect the protected apps.

    People freaking out, just calm down a bit. Have you tried calling Sprint or HTC to see they have any further information?

    I had purchases Spades for Android by bytesequencing.com. It is still installed, but in the marketplace app it doesn't show up in My Downloads. When I search for "Spades" it shows up in the list, but when I click it the app says "The requested item could not be found."

    This may not be related to the Hero update however, something weird going on with the Android Marketplace in general has already been reported today:

    I have missing apps in my Market MyDownload section, but all of them are available for download again.

    Seems to be the Pro versions of free apps (ones that cost money) that are missing from Android Market???

    EDIT: Just read on another forum that a guy played with a Verizon Eris (Hero) and it was missing some of the same apps as his Sprint Hero in Market. So may be more of a Google issue for Android 1.5? He also played with the Droid, it wasn't missing the apps though.

    Weird, I have done the update, searched about 10 of the apps that everyone says is missing, and they are there for me. Makes me wonder if this is a location specific issue? I am in North Carolina and have no probs.

    I'm having the same issue. NBA Gametime, Picsay Pro are a few. It doesn't appear to be remembering any of my prev downloads, even some of the free one

    I called HTC, but the person I spoke with was a complete idiot! He didn't know anything and his only concern was to see if I had an email address so he could send a survey.

    Jonnythan @ Sprint forums did a factory reset to pre-update status and reports missing apps are now available. So *something* has changed. Not just an Android 1.5 thing new to the market. It's VERY :thinking:odd that Droid Eris users are reporting the same problem since as far as I know, they did not get any kind of updates, hence nothing should have changed, yet has. Just wtf is going on here???

    Picsay Pro, Remote Desktop and SU File Manager are all missing for me. All three I paid for.

    Also, I used Nandroid to revert to before the update, and these apps are still missing for me. Therefore, I dont think its a post-update issue. However, I was rooted on that backup, so pehaps that has something to do with it.

    this is the constant problem with android maket and new firmware upgrades. when you upgrade you lose your favorites apps for some reason then magically when the publisher or google gets off their lazy butt to fix the code the firmware broke they show back up. this is a pain in the ass for those who dare not tread in the root access waters where you can make backups of your apps before flashing new firmware.

    generally when an update to the firmware is made they test to make sure the problems they adressed are fixed or semi patched till a fix can be implemented. they also make sure connection is not lost with the maket. the one thing that is not checked is weather all the availible apps are still there or if they even still work that's the responsibility of google and the app designer. so start flaming the app dev to fix his code i forgert where but there is a webpage you can go to and post remarks on the market for any availible app just like you would from the market on your phone it's acctually the same comments page as market only web based but you can not download the app from this page.

    my favorite apps backup programs are astro file manager which is free and root browser for the ones astro won't do this app you have to pay for but well worth the money both require root level access to backup apps.

    Pure Calendar (the agenda view one) is missing too oh no! (Pure Grid Calendar is there.) The author says that Pure Calendar is the only one that was "protected by Google" of his apps, whatever that means, and it's the only one developed by him that doesn't show.

    Sigh. I know I'm missing others but that's the main one.

    This is very frustrating! I just had to get my phone swapped out so I thought it would be a great idea to update to the latest firmware right out of the box! The update went great but now I can't download a lot of apps all of a sudden. Hope this gets fixed soon.
