My Android phone (4.4.2) is stuck in downloading an app. I uninstalled the app and removed the battery and rebooted and when it restarts, it's still trying to download the app!

How can I cancel the sticky download?

  • Wipe the data of the app called Download (or anything alike). If it doesn't suffice, wipe also the Google Play Store data.

Go to Settings->Apps and swipe to display all apps. Find each of the following and Force Stop them THEN clear data for each one:

  • Download Manager

  • Downloads

  • Google Play Store

  • Google Services Framework

Reboot after doing this.
