Sometimes android users will get the “ app could not be downloaded due to an error 492 ” error while trying to update or install an app from the Google Play Store aka Android market. This market error seems to affect only few apps while other apps download or install just fine. Here are the steps you can take to solve this problem: In my case, I experienced this error while trying to update the Rockmelt App. I solved this by a simple uninstall and reinstall in the Google Play Store. But mostly the problem error 492 can be fixed by these steps:
Note: This problem is common in case of Custom ROMs like Cyanogenmod. All customs ROMs have Clockworkmod so wiping cache shouldn’t be a problem.
It was also mentioned in XDA Forum that that sometimes the 492 error occurs when you have a corrupted SD card. So if the problem still persists after following the above measures, you could try formatting your SD card and then installing apps.
The error 492 occuring on your Android device might have been solved by now. If not, you can leave a comment below, with your device name. You can leave your opinion if it’s solved too. If you have a problem of persisting error 495 instead, you can see our guide on how to solve it.

After clearing data and cache of my Google Play it has stopped working. never connects…. help!
Arghhh the Google Play errors..
Did you try turning your wifi off and on? Also, restart and run Google Play and see if that works. Open Play Store and press menu and then add a different gmail acccount. Try downloading apps with the new account selected. If that worked again switch back to original account and try it.
If nothing works Uninstall updates for Google play and retry. Last option, download & [force stop play store from apps list]install the Google Play APK .
Here is the Androidpolice‘s link to the apk file: Download Google Play Store 4.2.3
Hope that worked for ya..
i’m having the same prblm even after following all steps firstly my google play stopped work n whn it recovers i could not download apps “error 492”
Same here and some of my apps that I have download already will kick me out in the middle of playing them.
I keep getting a 492 error
worked for me. thank you mikedeamigo
“All customs ROMs have Clockworkmod”
The statement above is patently false. The Recovery is completely separate from the ROM. In fact, it’s not a good practice to overwrite the device’s Recovery when installing a ROM. Some users, myself included, prefer other recoveries such as Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP).
it’s your custom rom fault
thankx man…..I’m Damn happy ..
Alright i’ll try it.. Hope this will work

Cleared everything this said to clear but now when i try to go into the Google Play Store it just says “check your connection and try again” when there is nothing wrong with my connection as this is the first time this has happened. Anyone know what is up?
This app verry good, thanks
I just made some room on my drive and followed some of the advise above, Thank you very much. I cleared cache Force stopping anything needing it and moved programs to SD card, uninstalled what I don’t use. Made sure Nothing else was running in the backround and it worked. the big thing I think is clearing all cache and allowing room on disk. I played this on the PC and hope its like that. Will run it after work. I did get the successfully installed message and it looks there but no time to run it. Took a long time to install. Hope it works for you guys. Oh, Im using a Galaxy tablet newer version purchased about 4-5 months ago.
Tap on Google Play Service and repeat the same process of Clearing Data and Cache 🙂 Thanks

Hi – I have an Azpen tablet for my daughter, and it suddenly gives me the “cannot download due to error 492” message. I have done all the tricks, cleared the cache, everything! I then tried to download the Error Code Fixer app (which is apparently amazing), and I get the same error code! This tablet does not have an SD card, so am not sure what to do. Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much
I’m using Samsung Galaxy S7562, i’m having an error during downloading from play store (app cannot download due to an error (492) ) help required, any suggestion or solution please.
also mentioned in XDA Forum that that sometimes the 492 error occurs when you have a corrupted SD card. So if the problem still persists after following the above measures, you could try formatting your SD card and then installing apps

Attractive element of content. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and in accession capital to say
that I get actually loved account your weblog posts.
Anyway I’ll be subscribing on your augment and even I success you get admission to constantly quickly.
Hello. I assume you are still accepting comments about this problem. I seem to have had this problem a lot, and I would clear the apps cache if the app was installed and not updating. If the app simply wouldn’t download, I have went in and cleared the cache for Google Play Store and the Google App Framework you spoke of in this article. At some point none of this was helping. So I found an article that said to go into Settings-Date & Time- Uncheck the Auto System Time and uncheck your Standard Time Zone. Then change your date and time to the wrong numbers. Restart your phone. Go back into Settings – Date and Time, and recheck the two boxes. You can see the phone system automatically reset the time and date correctly. This is suppose to sync the Google Play Store with the phones time… I don’t recall exactly. That has worked for me. Obviously it isn’t now because I’m reading your article. Unfortunately, none of the above is helping me.
