Hi,

have been using CM7 for a while now, and decided to do a complete reset of my phone yesterday. I was able to reinstall every app from the Market afterwards, except for Google Maps. Trying to install it, it starts downloading for a second or so and then stops. I downloaded the maps 5,0 apk from some website, but now i can't update it.

Any answers?

Thanks,

Bernard

This seems to be the problem, but it's bullshit since i have over 100MB of free space on internal...

What do?

After experimenting with Simple2ext I figured out a solution:

You have to check the "Download cache" option, then do a reboot (I also checked the "Applications" option). Try installing, it worked for me.

I also can't install Google Maps after updating to RC2 a few hours ago from CM6.1.1.

I also couldn't install Rockplayer Lite from the market (same effect - starts download and stops after 1 sec) but was able to install it once I downloaded it via PC and copied to my sdcard and installed the .apk directly from there.

regards

Simon

Hey, i'm having the same problem. I tried to install the s2e app but it says i need to reboot the device but even if i do it keeps saying i need to reboot it. I think the problem is that i don't have enough space in the cache. It says there is only 4MB left which is why the larger apps like Maps and Cardio trainer won't install. Can anyone help me pls? I run RC4 of v7. Thanks!

Hi,

I had the same issue but it's now solved ! B)

Below a little explanation :
Problem is that, to download an app, android market use a cache.This cache folder is located in /cache partition (it's called /cache/download).
But this partition (with a size of about 40Mb on HTC Desire) contains also others caches, notably the dalvik-cache(used to accelerate the boot of android) which has a size of...35Mb !
That why "big" apps(more than 5Mb) can't be downloaded using the market but small ones can be downloaded without any issues.µ
This also explain the "not enough space" message in logs which does not refer to the internal or external memory but to the space of /cache/download folder.

Concerning S2E, it's only works if your sdcard is mounted under /sd-ext(for me,it's mounted on /sdcard so.. :( ).
An other solution is to create a symlink of /cache/download which point to a folder in your sdcard(.It has worked(and still working... ;) ) perfectly for me !

I will open a bug in the bug tracker in order to ask to extend the size of /cache partition (perhaps 60Mb ?? ) in the next release.

Hopes it will help some of you !

Same problem here.

Did a clean install of CM6-RC4 with google aps but it just starts downloading form marked and does not want to install.
Used a backup from titanium backup and managed to install the package but now it would not update to Google Maps 5.3.0

I can confirm that this method to upgrade from RC2 to RC4 works (use the recovery menu to install instead of using RomManager). I think it was caused due to files from the previous installation in the /cache partition. As of now, my phone is running great and I don't seem to have any of the problems with GPS that other people have mentioned (I used MyTracks to plot a route yesterday, worked great). Slightly OT, but I'm still a little concerned as my /data partition seems to be quite tiny. I have just about 5 or 6 apps installed and it's already 62% full (data holds the dalvik-cache too, which seems weird). I know I can move apps to the SD card but is this expected behaviour for the HTC Desire?

Are these numbers the same for you guys? I got these numbers by running 'adb shell' and then 'df  -h' on my device which was connected with USB debugging enabled.

My partition sizes/used space readout is very similiar to yours and I wouldn't called 150M for data tiny :)

It is normal, if you don't want to work with app2ext solutions you use s-off and install a different hboot with bigger /data
but to be honest I haven't tried it yet since s-off is a bit scary :P

Hopes it will help some of you !

Your symlink solution works like a charm, even through reboots (I thought it wouldn't be persisted through reboots because seldom is something I want *this* simple). So thank you Totor25!

To clarify for anyone who isn't quite sure how to do this, enter these commands in the terminal emulator:
mkdir /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache
su
cd /cache
mv download download.bak
ln -s /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache download
ls -ahl .

the last step (ls -ahl .) is intended to verify that /cache/download points to /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache; there should be an entry that should look somewhat like "lrwxrwxrwx  1  root  root  33  Apr  14  03:35  download -> /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache".
Of course the timestamp (the 03:35 bit) will differ because I assume none of you reading this will be insane enough to do this at 3-thirty in the morning  :D
It's the "download -> /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache"-bit that's important. If it looks like that, then congrats, you can install big apps again!
