Android :: Apps Never Finish Downloading / Resolve This?

Nov 4, 2010

I'm using "AppBrain App Market". I have installed a bunch of apps, but some get stuck and just stay in "Downloading" state. They just never finish downloading. I see the progress bar "barbershop pole" style but there is no sign of progress. Some are new installations, some are updates.

This is despite the fact that some apps HAVE successfully downloaded and installed. What could the problem be? How do I resolve this?

Cancelling the download and restarting the download resolved the problem once. (Downloads / click on neverending download item, Cancel Download)

But if the button series is (Downloads / click on neverending download item, *Installing*). Then the Installing button is greyed out then I'm stuck.

This thread did not provide any solutions: Market Apps Finish Downloading but Won't Install

Motorola Droid X :: Market Apps Finish Downloading But Unable To Install

Oct 3, 2010

I've had this issue since the 2.2 leaks (2.2.9-2.3.15 and now with RubiX) and have finally gotten tired of it. When downloading apps or updates from the market, 1/2 the time it'll finish downloading but then won't install. It just hangs there at 100% and nothing happens no matter how long I leave it there. I have to cancel download and then re-download, sometimes multiple times, before it'll install it automatically. This happens with every app, and while I do eventually get everything install, it will still very annoying. Does anyone else have this issue?

Android :: Make SAX Parser Wait For File To Finish Downloading Before Parsing?

Sep 20, 2010

I am having a problem where my XML files are slow to load and don't finish downloading before they start to be parsed which throws an xml not well formatted exception from my parser showing that the file downloaded incompletely. The complete error from logcat is "ERROR/Error(323): errororg.apache.harmony.xml.ExpatParser$ParseException: At line 10, column 46: not well-formed (invalid token)" I know the xml file is correct because sometimes it will work and I can also pull it up in my browser and look at it.

What would be the best way to make the parser wait for the InputSource before continuing on and parsing the xml data? The code below is the code I use to get the file and parse it.

SAXParserFactory spf = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
SAXParser sp = spf.newSAXParser();
XMLReader xr = sp.getXMLReader();
GradeHandler gradeHandler = new GradeHandler();
xr.setContentHandler(gradeHandler);
URL url = new URL("https://url/to/xml/file");
HttpsURLConnection ucon = (HttpsURLConnection)url.openConnection();
ucon.setHostnameVerifier(new AllowAllHostnameVerifier());
xr.parse(new InputSource(new BufferedInputStream(ucon.getInputStream())));

Android :: Activity Finish Method Waits To Finish?

Aug 14, 2010

With this sample code, the activity is told to finish, but continues execution afterwards and displays the message. I'm trying to understand why this happens. The only fix I can think of is to place 'return' after finish.

public void someMethod() {
if( valueIsTrue) {
startActivity(new Intent(this, NewActivity.class));
CurrentActitivy.this.finish();

// return; // if uncommented, Toast doesn't show
}
Toast.maketext(this, "Some message", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();}

HTC EVO 4G :: Downloading Apps Issue

Jul 31, 2010

All of a sudden, yesterday, my apps won't download or update! I hit the update button (or download) and it exits me back into the home of the market place, and I wait. I wait. And I wait. Nothing. I look back on the page and it is stuck on "Starting download..." Also, the "Google Talk" solution won't work for me - Talk just exits back to the home screens when I touch the icon.

HTC EVO 4G :: Market Is Not Downloading Apps

Aug 29, 2010

Just like the topic says. I had Froyo Android 2.2 and did do a successful download to android 2.1 and everything works but the market. Occasionally it will download a app or two but then it just gets stuck and never will download anything. I'm guessing this has something to do with being on 2.2 then downgrading to 2.1. It is a google server issue or something on my phone?

HTC Desire :: Downloading Apps To The SD Card

Nov 5, 2010

I just got my Desire on Monday at US Cellular and I will admit I didn't do much research I just took the word of some friends that have been droid guys for a while. I am pretty disappointed that I have run out of internal space and I don't even have a tenth of the apps I was hoping to get. Is there a way I can download them to the SD card without rooting my phone or waiting for the froyo update?

HTC Hero :: Android Market Not Downloading Apps

Feb 21, 2010

I'm a new HTC Hero owner - just bought the phone yesterday. I have downloaded apps from the Android Market, but last night and today, my phone will get into a state where I will select an app to download, it will tell me to watch the notification bar for download status, and nothing will happen. If I select the app in the store to look at the download progress, it just says: "downloading...." with the animated bar, but never downloads. I tried turning off the phone and turning it back on, and that seemed to correct the problem for one download, but then subsequent downloads won't start up. I have barely installed any apps on it, and I'm not really sure what the problem is. Is this a known issue with the Android Market, or do I have something wrong with my phone? Has anyone else encountered this and know why it's happening?

Motorola Droid :: Downloading Apps Safe Or Not

Nov 6, 2009

I am new to downloading apps on a smartphone, but I see that many of them are made by what appears to be individual people, and are free, does this mean there is any kind of concern for any virus, or others (or the app maker) to get into my info. I know it tells you the app will have access to all of your phone data.. should I be at all concerned with the possibility of anything happening from getting free apps made by individuals?

Motorola Droid :: 2 Market Apps Always Downloading

Nov 1, 2010

I'm running BB v.05 w/ Chevy no 1 ulowV 1.0Ghz Whenever I switch batteries or restart my phone, a lot of my apps need updating (updates that have already been downloaded). Also, Beautiful Widgets and the southpark photohunter (something a friend tried to download for a reason unknown) are in a constant state of downloading. When I try to cancel the downloads, market simply offers the "Sorry! the application market (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. please try again." pop up.Along with those problems, I tend to get a security update change notification at least 2 or 3 times for the email application (not the google one) every time I restart my phone.After searching forums the first day I encountered these problems (when I got the bb update) I decided to just ignore the problems until people had time on their own with their new setup.

HTC EVO 4G :: Temp Go Up Quickly While Web Browsing Downloading Apps Etc

Oct 2, 2010

I am coming up on my 30 day return deadline and want to see if my phone might have a hardware problem (hoping it doesn't) or if it's normal that i've got temps of up to 118 degrees. While idle or sleeping, the temp is of course low but once I start to fiddle with the phone, I see the temp go up and up quickly. Right now it's at 104.4F after about 5-10 minutes on my phone (web browsing, downloading apps, etc.) It is usually between 100F and 110F and sometimes the kickstand is hot to the touch. I feel like it gets abnormally hot in a short amount of time. Hottest it ever got was about 118F while playing home run battle 3D and my LED alternated which meant it was overheating. There isn't a day that the phone does not get hot. Also, I do have a case on it which might contribute to the heat a bit. What are your normal temps while using the phone?

Android :: Way To Get Extensible Apps With Scripting / Bytecode Downloading?

Sep 29, 2009

I'm looking into a solution that needs apps to be dynamically extensible. One way could be an extension language or scripting engine. I've seen the Android Scripting Environment, but this needs the actual C scripting engine (Python or Lua) running as a separate process. I would like the runtime to be a Java app itself, like JavaScript using Rhino (and not using a WebView). Another way is to download Java code dynamically. But, Android does not support jar downloading and dynamic classloading, since these bytecode class files are not used directly.

Android :: Nandroid Restore / Apps Downloading From Market?

Jun 17, 2010

I am under the impression that Nandroid backup & restore completely wipes the system data and overwrites with a saved image of the Android OS with whatever was on the phone at the time of backup. I created a backup to my SD Card, installed an app (ROM Manager)--couldn't get it to work so I uninstalled it. I then did a restore on my previously saved backup and right after booting up, I see a notification, open it, and catch ROM Manager downloading again to, eventually, install itself.How does the market, or my phone, know that this app was previously installed? Is it saved to my Google account somewhere? Is the data stored on my SD Card? My Nandroid backup that was created without the app being installed shouldn't have this information still on it should it?
