[FIXED] [Android] Can't update / install apps

Postby Nish on Wed May 09, 2012 10:00 pm

Hello!

Been having this issue for a couple of days now.
I can't download or update any of my applications on my Android, it just stands still on the "pre-downloader"

I've gotten the error code #495, which I've also searched up,
Some people recommended that I should clear the Google Play Market, which I've done. Sadly, no effect.
Attempted a reboot aswell - nothing.

I've also got the same issue with youtube, whenever I click on a video on my account list, it will refresh the video until I get the error message: "Could not connect to host".

What do I do?

When ever I had strange issues like this on mine, I just ended up doing a factory reset and removing any recently installed apps to see how that goes first of all.

Aye, factory reset best solution - something's gone wrong and it'll probably only be like half sorted by any fix you find, the underlying errors will probably still be hiding somewhere.
Personally I format/reset my phone(s)/PC/laptop regularly to keep them peak 8)

Allright, I attempted a factory reset yesterday evening.

I didn't lose my music, so I'm happy about that, but, all my contacts went... :/

At first, the factory reset, but then I waited for about 16 hours, and I could finally update my apps and download some new ones.


This case has been resolved.
