Yesterday I upgraded my rooted LG Optimus One (P500) running v20g 2.3.3 to CM10 (unofficial) 4.1.1 through this post.
Since the new ROM is unofficial and is in alpha/beta stage there are few known problems. I am able to live up with those problems just to enjoy the new Jelly Bean. However one undocumented problem about download manager was discovered yesterday, which proved to me nasty.
When I attempt to install any app from Google Play Store, a progress bar appears saying "Downloading..." and the numerical progress indicator 'x/y Kb done' does not come up. At first I thought it should be problem with my WiFi, but other application seems to access Internet correctly. In concurrence to this behavior, the LEDs in my WiFi modem does not blink, which it usually does when there is a WiFi activity. Even small apps in the order of 150 Kb takes long time and eventually ends with error. However, I accidentally noticed that a combination of simultaneous downloads of more than one app, cancelling and starting again etc, made FEW of the downloads to actually progress while other still linger. So, it is clear that the download manager that Google Play Store relies on is trouble some in my case.
My question is how can I replace that download manager? Installing other download manager does not help as Google Play still uses the troublesome native one only.
Any ideas on how I can use some other download manager for Google Play or to mend the troublesome one?
BTW, I had tried: Turbo Download Manager, Download Manager for Android. They do not detect the download when i press "install" button in Google Play Store for an app. Trying other download manager is still a big pain as I have to download APK from other sites and transfer to my SD card to install.
