Fix Playstore Error 492
Due To Cache Not Being Mountable

Iv seen many people saying they cant install apps on cm7 due to error 492 as their cache partition is not mountable so here is how to fix it

For those who get the following error in cwm which will stop you downloading from the playstore (error 492)

E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/lastlog

Once you have installed and booted the rom

Go into cwm
Make a nandroid backup

Once the backup has been made
Reboot to recovery

Goto backup and restore
Advanced restore
Select your nandroid backup
Restore cache

You can now download from the playstore as the cache has been fixed

i found another solution to this. you will create a new account on google then patiently wait for google play to respond then hola. you can download apps afterwards.. i just discovered it recently
