    You don't try to install system apps by running the .apk file, you use something like Root Explorer and copy them to the /system/app folder, then reboot your phone.

    easy, you only can save 16gb to it.

    sorry you didn't know that dub, but you can only use half the actual space of the card. :(

    I also deleted my market app, but factory restoring it didn't work.
    Can someone explain what is meant by "use something like Root Explorer"?

    Thanks,

    Get the app root explorer or es file explorer long press the market apk make system r/w and move into system/app then reboot. Either that or just flash gapps in cwm.

    I have the SuperUser app. Is that considered a root explorer?

    If I understand correctly, I would put the market apk into system/app then reboot? Or is there another file/extension I should put in?

    No, Root Explorer is a root explorer... Basically a file manager with access to the "root" of your phone.

    Other than that, I think you got it.

    Thanks Johnny Crapple & Can0Dope.

    One more question and I think we'll get it working. How do I move the .apk to the root folder?
    So far I've put the .apk on my sd card. I went on the phone and tried to move it, but I couldn't find the root folder from move. I also tried copy & paste, but after I copy I couldn't find an option to paste in the root folder.

    I used to use an app called Super Manager which I believe would allow me to use it, but I can't get that app now since market isn't working, and I can't find the apk for it online.

    Any recommendation?
