N8 System Error when installing apps

I'm continously getting a 'System error' message whenever I try to install some apps, such as Nokia Battery Monitor, Youtube Downloader and fMobi. This occurence only began recently after updating to Symbian Anna. I've installed many other apps and can still install other apps but I seem to have a problem with a select few. I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall the apps and also done a delete and restore after backup but still no change.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions 

 

Nokia N8 - Symbian Anna  - 059C5Q8 - Unbranded - UK

Re: N8 System Error when installing apps

Now whenever I turn on the phone it says system error, I've tried hard resetting and that didn't help either

Re: N8 System Error when installing apps

I did the update yesterday via OVI.........

 

I get a "system error" message every time the phone starts

Can't get into my contacts at all, the timer pops up and then goes away! (There are 260 in memory and SPB Shell has access!!!)

Conversations won't run, says not available feature

Can't install the beta labs sleeping screen

Took multiple attempts to install OVI chat

 

All I want is a working phone!  It was working better before the damn update!

 

It looks like there's something missing after the update :smileymad:


Tried *#7370# for return to factory defaults, no change

Tried re-installing Anna, no change


Anyone else having these issues too? Any solutions you can think of?


This is a UK UNBRANDED N8 bought directly from Nokia in Finland

Software version 022.014

Custom version 022.014.226.06

N8 (059C5Q5) now running Belle V111.030.0609
N8 (059C5Q5) previously running Anna V25.007
Previous [N97, N95 8Gb, N95, N82]

If in doubt, RTFM! (Read The F***ing Manual)

Re: N8 System Error when installing apps

In my case, it helped uninstalling Swype, maybe you have it installed too?

Don't worry, however, even after uninstalling Swype I now get system errors from time to time...

Good luck!

Re: N8 System Error when installing apps

Hi there,

I have a Nokia Astound and after performing a hard reset on it started having the problem of "System Error" when installing certain applications from Beta Labs or the OVI Store.

 

After looking around for a solution for quite a while , the thing that solved my problem was this: I went to Applications Manager/Installed Apps and uninstalled the Smartinstaller (also known as Nokia Smartinstaller). Then restarted the phone, tried again the installation of the applications I was having problems with (in my case it was Nokia Bubbles and You Tube Downloader) and they installed without problems.

 

Hope that this helps resolve your problem.
