    After sideloading v1.1.0 and overclocking to 1100 mhz, I discovered apps purchased from market would not download - just stayed at "starting download" stage.

    After searching this forum and XDA, I tried clearing cache in Nook tools/market apps/Market and rebooting, but this didn't help me. Tried a couple of reboots to see if that would reset things.

    Finally, just before restoring to last setting with CWR, I read on XDA that umounting and mounting SD might help. I tried this, and suddenly downloads came through. Not sure how SD mounting status is related to market download, but it works for me.

    Thought I'd relay my experience in case in can help out another noob out there.

    Thanks.

    Nook Color Tools > Applications > Market: wipe data may have worked as well.

    I believe sometimes it can get stuck looking at a possible update rather than a new install and some apps will create a folder on sd partition, it can create conflicts.

    Thanks for sharing! I had the same issue but a simple restart fixed it.

    Rico,

    Where is wipe data option? I see clear cache, force close, & a few other options, but nothing called wipe data.

    Thanks.

    Just bought a nook color and rooted it. However I was experiencing the same problem with market apps appearing to initiate download but ultimately stalling....I read the above forum discussion and simply unmounted my SD card, powered off then on and presto! Apps now download. Thanks for the feed.
