    I have a weird problem. I can't install any apps from the app catalog because there is a ghost app that is paused, and it won't delete when I choose delete paused apps. I really have no clue what the problem could be, I just did a fresh webOS doctor install about a week or two ago. Screenshot included.

    same thing happened to me and the only way I was able to get rid of it and download apps ok was to doctor the phone.Once I doctored it and signed back into my Palm profile all my apps were restored except that one. I'm not certain what caused it but tit happened to me after I doctored the phone for another reason and Palm profile replaced them and one got stuck for some reason

    The same thing has happened to me, and I can't figure it out. I can dl apps fine using preware but every app from the app catalog is paused b/c of the ghost app.

    Anyone got an idea on how to remove it without using webOS doctor?

    I had this same problem and did a partial erase, and it seemed to get rid of it. I also deleted App Scoop.

    Solution:

    From a terminal window, type the following commands:

    cd /var
    cd palm
    cd data
    cd com.palm.appInstallService
    rm installHistory.db
    press orange + SYM + R to reboot

    Does this leave all the data in SMS and pics, videos, music etc? And does it ONLY erase application data?
