    I have no idea what the problem is. I have a 2G ipod touch, updated to the lastest firmware. No jailbreak. I downloaded an APP from the appstore and ive been waiting for it to install for almost an HOUR! The icon says "installing" and the progress bar shows it full. Afterwards, the progress bar stays there and "installing" goes away and the name of the app shows up on the bottom of the icon. BUT the progress bar is still there and if i try to launch the app, it resets the install and starts installing AGAIN! what the hell is the problem! i just paid 6 dollars for this and i cant even play it?!?!?!

    Restart your device and then try downloading it again.

    This is why I always download big things (firmware updates, large apps, etc) on my computer, not my iPod.

    Maybe you can also download it on your computer? Like, since you already paid for it maybe you can just download it on your computer for free and install it that way.
