    So I want to have all the apps available in Android Market and I cannot get Market Enabler to install. When I launch the MarketEnabler_3.0.8.apk - I get an error saying "Install Blocked - bla bla since application not sourced in Android Market". What do I do? I downloaded command line app called Android Shell Emulator and I'm supposed to enter adb install MarketEnabler_v3.0.8.apk

    But it does not work - it just says erroroutput[adb; not found. I placed the MarketEnable file in the root phone directory. My Samsung Captivate is properly rooted. So how the hell am I supposed to get that command and the damn Market to work properly???????????????????????????????????????

    Also, I accidentally uninstalled the Where program that came with my phne and I cannot find it on Android Market to reinstall it....Do I need unlocked Android market for that?

    The error message you talk about is probably regarding allowing non-market software to run. Go to Settings > Applications and check "Unknown sources". I'm not sure how to fix theother issues you're having, but maybe this will solve it all.

    Unless you have a custom ROM, the "unknown sources" option shouldn't be there.

    The only way I've heard is to do it using the computer. You can either use the SDK or the Sideload Wonder Machine.

    Depends on your phone. You have an Aria, so I'm guessing you have that AT&T anti-sideloading bs to deal with. On my Evo, that option has always been available, stock or custom ROM.

    Yeah, it's like that on every ATT phone, such as the Captivate.
