Talking Market fix for Insufficient Space Error

When trying to download apps off the android market i got the error "Insufficient Space" even thought i had over 250mb internal and 3GB external.

I have tried all the guides to get this working, from force closing market and clearing data/cache etc to using the adb command method to move it to SD Card but nothing worked.

I came accross a FREE app on the android market. I simply installed and ran the app and pressed the button. Then tried the market again and it fixed the error!


I did not create this app, i simply want to share it with others because i know it was a complete pain. Make sure you give the app good feedback in the market.

let me know how it goes. i literally tried everything and it is soo much hassle.

If you cant even download this app let me know and i will put the APK on dropbox for you.

Its so simple. press one button and a second later you can download any apps from the market.

Thanks for posting this... I had to wipe and reflash CM7 several time over the last week because this kept happening to me. I think this fixed it. YAY!!!!!

easier way: clear cache in clockworkmod, you cache is full and so the app cannot be downloaded to the cache...
