    Sorry if this is a repeat forum but haven't had any luck finding any others...

    For about a week and a half I have been unable to update or download any apps from the app catalog successfully. Prior to tonight, all of my attempts had been made in updating so I figured, since I wanted Need For Speed anyway, I would give it a try buying a new app. It 'downloads' the entire thing according to the download bar and then comes up with a screen that says the phone must be restarted to finish download. When I restart, there is a notification at the bottom telling me whatever number of apps I have attempted to update/download have failed. Has anyone run into a similar situation? This is becoming really frustrating and I don't think it's something Sprint will really be able to help me with.

    I've been having the same problem, so I will follow this thread. I thought this was a Bell-only thing, but apparently not....

    Use the Emergency Migration Helper which can be found in the Linux Application section on Preware and it should take care of everything.

    thanks! When searching for that I found this forum which matches my situation almost exactly. Seems to provide good instructions and good explanations.

    let me know if you get anything to work, abid.

    alright, installed the EMH, waited 30 mins, and was able to update (almost) all of my apps from the app catalog and download NFS successfully! For some reason the app BlockDrop wouldn't update still but i don't really play that one anyway haha.
    Thanks for the help gerrymad

    i was still having 3 apps (sudoku, stopwatch/timer, and blockdrop) that still were giving me that message but i found that they had been changed/deleted in the app catalog and that was the issue. for example, i deleted the old sudoku that kept failing and found the new sudoku lite in the app catalog, which now works perfectly. hope that helps!

    Interesting...I had this same issue but I attributed it to the fact that i have homebrew versions and assumed they might be conflicting.
    In the end I deleted the problematic apps.

    As for the rest of the 'purchasable' apps...well they don't work until we get an updated app catalog.

    I had this same issue,
    Preware really digs dead into the system and always breaks something when there is a webos update. You have to remove it before you update, every time.

    I think there is a problem with the app catalog again... TouchPad failed to download an update and both my wife's and my Pre gave the "failed to download" error while trying to download Jogstats... Both paid and free. and we wanted to see how many miles we are about to ride

    We are currently experiencing some difficulties with App Catalog downloads. This is under current investigation and we hope to have it back up soon.

    Thank you for your patience.
