    Got this from another thread from Williamyip:

    Thanks for the solution. That works for me. Here are the steps in case someone else needs the detail.

    1. Connect using USB
    2. Donwload motorola backflip driver and install. (AT&T Motorola Backflip USB Drivers Download | AT&T Cell Phones | Blog about att phones.)
    3. Install Android SDK.
    4. Go to "tools" in the SDK folder in command prompt.
    5. Type "adb devices" to make sure the phone is connected properly.
    6. Type "adb install some_file.apk" to install. (assuming the .apk file is under the same "tools" folder. )

    Would this also work for Motorola Bravo?

    I hope this one gets someone's attention. lol

    If you don't want to go through that work, and have a rooted phone you can search the Android Market for this.

    "non-market enabler". It will return an app by Bandroidx that costs $1.69 and will do all the work for you to enable apps from other sources.
