INSTALL_FILE_ALREADY_EXISTS on factory reset phone

Postby sazabo » Tue Mar 03, 2009 6:13 pm

:(
I am having problems uploading new versions of
my App. the app runs on the emulator. I signed and verified the app before attempted uploading.

Tried and failed:

Load from website
load from USB using adb install
reset G1 to factory setting

After reset of phone the error message for ADB is Failure
[INSTALL_FAILED_ALREADY_EXISTS]

Any thoughts?

thanks,

Jeff

You could have tried changing the version number, it could have helped.

I forgot to try that, Where is android storing the info about the Package, even when a factory reset was performed?

thanks again

I don't know. Did you do a 'hard reset' (as it's called on Windows Mobile) or just restore to factory settings. Because the latter only should change the settings of the system, and not the data.

I performed a Hard reset which did noting to help. Changing the package name did the trick.
