Hey all!

So I have a Sensation 4G, and before i was rooted, i had an app called Cell Biology Study Guide (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lbiology&hl=en)

I'm taking biology in University and this app was a life saver. When i got rooted, this app was incompatible with my phone... So later on, today, i downloaded LCD Density Modder Pro, which had a new market apk and whatnot.

I was able to go to the link of the app and click download, but it would give me the error code instead.

Any fix? Is there an alternate way to get the app? I would REALLY appreciate it. This app is a simplified, detailed textbook on your phone, i could really use it

Using Ordroid

Thanks!

Try clearing data from download manager (settings-apps-all) and play store, then remove your google account, then go to play store and it will ask you to link your account after that try downloading the app. (That worked for me).

Hi I'm using Ordroid 8.6.5, just download a couple days ago. Well I noticed what happened at the playstore was for some reason it ERASED my google wallet! This giving me the error when purchasing applications! So it was a easy fix. I went to google wallet you can access your wallet in a drop down menu at check out, and I Re entered my card information. This did the trick, no more error during download! Not sure if it's your error also but I did some searching and I think the code does have something to do with billing. I can't figure out why my information was ERASED but I only know it WAS! Maybe this will help you too ? Check you're google wallet and see if your info is still available. This could be what's happening to you also. Is worth a try . Good luck!

Info 2 GAPPS Version
According to this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1750759 you may be using an incorrect version of GAPPS.

The aforementioned post links to GAPPS downloads but also check your ROM's thread and it may have a custom modified version as well.

I was plagued with 942's and inability to install APKs [that worked before] until I finally found that post.

My situation may be a little bit diff cause I was spoofing the market to download a certain app... first I tried the instructions above with no luck. Finally, what I did was cleared Play Store data one more time and uninstalled updates to go back to an older version of Play. Worked like a charm. Then just go back and update your Play.
