Question Hi everybody

I am struggling with a newly acquired Huawei u8230 smart phone.
Get failure when I try to install apps using adb similar to these below
tools>adb -d install -r File_System_Explorer.apk
1092 KB/s (17473 bytes in 0.015s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/File_System_Explorer.apk
tools>adb -d install -r z4root.apk
1455 KB/s (978414 bytes in 0.656s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/z4root.apk

I was trying to root the phone but could not get beyond
adb -d install -r z4root.apk
which failed.
If anyone has a possible solution please help. emails welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Ezima Ugwu.

Hey there, Ezima--welcome to our AndroidForums!

My first thought is that your first file (File_System_Explorer.apk) is not whole and/or is corrupted given the "INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED" message you are seeing or, if this is a new or rebuilt .apk file, then see this thread over on stackoverflow.com: manifest - Installation error: INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED? - Stack Overflow.

As for the "INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK" error, see this thread: android - Installation error: INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK - Stack Overflow

Also, I think you'd be better off if I moved your thread over here to the U8230 - All Things Root - Android Forums area since the root folks in that area might have some other feedback for you (I'll do that and send you a PM to make sure you know where it got moved).

Cheers and best of luck!
