    I am trying to install an .APK file on my phone, and i did everything right. when I go onto the ASTRO app to install it, it says that "For security, your phone is set to block installation of applications not sourced in Android Market." What do I do to stop this

    I'm having the same problem as well. I can't seem to find the "allow unknown apk's" option is. It's not in the same spot as it is on my HTC EVO?? Also looking to root my Samsung and the flash it so i can use it on another simcard network instead of AT&T SO any pointers on this for a new b would help.. send me a link or something so i can figure this out.
