    So I downloaded blockbuster.apk, and when I go to install it, it won't let me, it says application not installed. Is there anything I can do to make it work like change the device info in build.prop or something? Anything is helpful!

    Well how would I go about installing .exes on my phone? Cause I don't think you can. Android OS is only capable of installing .APK files. Unless you found a way to do so? Lol

    In that case it will only be licensed for use on those handsets, so obtaining it elsewhere and/or installing it on another device is a breach of copyright.

    On a general note, downloading anything from known warez distribution sites is probably a bad idea due to the possibility of malware or exploits being introduced. Discussing them here on Android Forums is certainly not something we encourage.
