Cant download large apps from Android Market

If you are running a rooted Android phone and have problems with downloading large apps from the Android market, one fix can be to move the market download folder over to the SD-card, install a terminal emulator and perform the following (on your own risk of course):

mkdir /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache
su
cd /cache
mv download download.bak
ln -s /mnt/sdcard/market-download-cache download
ls -ahl

Then try again and see if it wont work better to download large apps, like Google Maps 🙂
