Not my phone but what would cause API not to install downloaded fine but won't install no apk at all
What exactly happens? Does it go through the motions as if it installed okay, but then is not actually installed? Or are you getting an error message of some sort?
It goes to the screen that usely says installed but instead of saying installed it says not installed (one of the apk is root browser)
Crap, I've had that happen before... I'm now wracking my brain to try to remember what the issue was. #developerfrustration
What ROM and such are you on?
Lol its not on a warp
( LG Optimus v rooted running backside from no gapps )
Ohh, ok. I was assuming it was a Warp, just not yours lol
Lol I just don't know what would cause apk not to install
It sounds like you are trying to install a system app
Oh crap, that reminds me of the Office paperclip lol
Silly question maybe but have you set your phone to allow install from other sources? If not that's exactly what will happen. Also some system apks won't install without root or without disabling and clearing the cache and data of what they're replacing.
Also some modded/themed apks wont install unless placed in system/app
The apk are 1.root browser 2.camera ics 3.API installer all from downloaded to my phone(all but apk installer)and uploaded to my dropbox
This is what usually happens if you try to install an unsigned app.
Have you tried placing them in /system/app and rebooting?
Can't don't have a app to do what can be done?
I could be wrong here but I believe those system apps will only install if your phone is rooted.
I have these apk down loaded and installed on my phone itself crazy
Any file browser like es or xplore can do it also you can do it with a terminal emulator or adb
Hmmm ill try to get smthing going
If the issue is that they're not signed...you may be able to run them thru apktool or apkmultitool and resign them
That's it tho I have the same apk downloaded and installed on my phone which are the same apks I uploaded to my drop box and downloaded to the LG would uploading to drop box unsign them?
I wouldn't think so
There's no file explore at all on the phone and Google play store is missing (no gapps which are flashed after the rom all links for gapps are broken should I just put a different port of cm7 on the phone?
Do you have a PC with adb on it?
