    Issue: Apps fail to install from Google Market and Amazon App Store. Installation Error: Package File is invalid file. I have plenty internal memory (110 MB) and SD storage space available (17 GB). I have searched Google many times and tried the following and keep getting this error.

    · Goto Settings, Applications, App (Market or Amazaon store), clear cache. Then try download.

    · Use My Backup Pro, MyToolBox – Wipe Cache

    · Use App Organizer, Clear App Cache

    · Reboot to RECOVERY, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache, reboot and try download again

    · Use Root Explorer, goto the /Cache/Dalvik Cache folder and delete the files related to application. Then delete the apk file from /system/app folder. Then try download and installation again.

    · Restore to factory settings and reinstalled all applications and eventually get the same error again.

    Can you please help me fix this issue my Android phone?
    Phone Specs: Rooted (Spring Lovers ROM) HTC EVO 4G. Remaining Internal ROM: 110 MB. Most apps moved to SD card via APPS2SD application.

    I don't use the same ROM as you, but Google Market doesn't work with my ROM either. (Don't think it works with any alternate ROM...) I had to install GAPPS with mine. Available on ROM Manager...

    Just wanted to mention that I have installed 100+ apps from Google Market and Amazon App Store, it eventually stops working and throws the error mentioned earlier. Does something need to be reset to get this working again?

    So the market works, but only occasionally?

    Are you running google and amazon market from the SD card? Move them back on to the phone, clear their app cache and then try.

    I love that phones are now going to 1GB+ of internal app RAM and 512MB+ of run RAM.
