I've installed a fresh stock ROM from Google site on my Galaxy Nexus.
At the time I've opened the Google Play and started installing the 157 apps... the problem is that I needed to stop downloading in the middle as I needed to move to an area without wifi coverage, so I pressed stop.
Now I don't see any option to resume that installation.
Is it really a one shot? How could I have paused it to avoid downloading it on 3G?
adb shell. See this answer for a complete explanation of backup sets.
Root access is not required.
shell@maguro:/ $ bmgr list sets 1234567890abcdef : droid48 34567890abcdef12 : galaxy49 ... shell@maguro:/ $ bmgr restore 1234567890abcdef Scheduling restore: droid48 done
This triggered a full restore of all the previously installed apps on my device instantly.
There's no option to resume. If you stop you can only manual download later.
If you didn't pressed stop, you could just disable data transfer and, when connected again, download will continue.
If you stop, the current sync state will be sent to the server and it will be (without the apps that weren't installed) stored as the device final state after restore.
And by the way, clear market data will not help (Tested >5 times on reflash my Desire)
If you had turned off 3G, or even the device altogether, the downloads would have 'paused' so to say, and would have been resumed as soon as a data connection became available.
Apart from that, there is no way to pause an app download from Google Play, to resume later.
I had this same problem. Don't know exactly what I did but I removed the Google account from my phone and re-signed in. Then I opened the Play Store and all my previous apps began downloading. Hope this helps
A similar problem happened with me and I try to factor reset a few times. It did not work. What worked was as follows:
