Default Some apps wont download from the market. They stop right away.

Im using a 2.2 nero 3 rom and some apps like dungeon defenders won't download. When I choose download it starts but stops a second later with no errors. I cleared the market cache but still have no luck.

In my experience that happens when the downloading service was killed by the system due to lack of free memory.

Go into Settings / Applications / Running Services and see if there's Downloading Service or soemthing like that.

If it says "restarting" then it was definitely killed by the system.

I never found a resolution for this so I got a refund on the app.

just for grins, pick a free app that's several MB in size, download it, then go into services and see if downloading service is there. Want to see if the system kill it or not.
