Hi,

Do you have this problem? I just can't download anything which is bigger than 25 mb on the Android Market.

Silly question maybe but how much space do you have on your internal and external storage?

the new market uses /cache partition to store downloads, so if your cache is full you can't dl large files anymore!

try to clean up the cache

if your using a lagfix which changed the fs of the /cache partition to ext4, thats probably the cause of your problem, you can fix this changing the /cache partition back to rfs, or install hardcore's kernel, from xda-developers, but before you do that, you should remove the lagfix you installed. try this link and i suggest you read the topic. http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=822756 , im currently use his k12Q begmem version, its stable, and fast. you might not need the lagfix after you install this kernel, but you have to be in Froyo firmware. hope this helps.

no need to format anything
/cache is limited to 30Mo on SGS, which was the previous android application limitation
now android allows 50Mo application size
market downloads the apk 1st in /cache partition then installs it into the system
pocket legend is a big one, recently, was above 30Mo
sent them some mails and they were nice enough to reduce the size below 30Mo. my latest update went fine

in short, do :
adb shell , su , cd /cache , rm *apk
then install your app
if still fails, there are chances the app is above 30Mo

hope this helps ...
