    My father has a rooted EVO and for months when trying to download or update certain apps, for example IRIS, he gets the message "unable to download -- error code (-101)." I've walked him through some troubleshooting, but nothing has helped to fix this.

    I'm sure there's something I haven't yet tried. Does anyone have any suggestions? And why is it only affecting certain apps like IRIS?

    Also, speaking of IRIS, he gets no speech from that. He can talk into the phone and get written responses from IRIS, but no returned speech answers.

    Try wiping the google play cache and data ... then try it. If that doesnt work uninstall google play and re download the google play apk. That will fix it.

    I thought that one is unable to actually uninstall Google Play, that it's a system app? Similarly, where is the actual apk to re-download? If it's a system app that can't be uninstalled, it's not going to be on the Google Market site to download, is it?

    Dustwun gave you the link but remember your rooted you can unistall system apps now. No you can't do it the traditional way you either a) need to go through Titanium Backup and uninstall from there or B) Use A File Manager like Root Explorer and navigate to the /system/app folder and find the google play.apk package file and delete it.

    If using method number 2 or b in this case its best to reboot into recovery wipe cache and dalvic and then reboot into the ROM before side loading the new Google play store apk

    So far this hasn't worked at all. Same error code. He's trying the uninstall/reinstall.

    BTW, his Market is listed as Market and not Google Play.

    actually it should be Vender.apk for the new Google play store
