    Is this possible? I unlocked my phone's bootloader with HTCDev which reset the phone and it's gone back to having Android Market (not Play store) and keeps timing out when I open it so I can't download any apps.

    I want to manually install the Google Play apk from the SD card. But I can't root a Sensation with the ICS upgrade so I can't push it with adb. And there's no file browser installed by default.

    Ideas?
