Merry christmas
hoping some android guru can help. I keep getting this message

installation error unknown reason -18

When trying to install aps. Now it doesn't happen with every app, most recent is fruit ninja.
Any idea what's causing it?

Thanks.

Try browsing to .android_secure and deleted the file 'smdl2tmp1.asec'. Hopefully problem solved.

Thanks Percy, only folder I found was located on the sdcard. And it was empty.

I did a bit of googleing.

Try unmounting your sd card and then installing app again. Remount once finished.

Hope this helps.

Some apps update/install, some don't. This trick fixed the ones that wouldn't that were not on the SD, but after remounting the SD, apps that were on the SD still won't update. I guess I have to move them back to "phone", update with the SD unmounted, and then moved them back to SD. LAME!

Anyway, thanks for the workaround. I wish someone could fix this for good.





EDIT: This solved it for me, yay!
'rm /mnt/secure/asec/smdl2tmp1.asec'

...or delete "/mnt/secure/asec/smdl2tmp1.asec" via root explorer / other.
