    Sup everyone,

    I have a rooted MB502.

    Starting around a few days ago, my phone will not install ANY apk files. I tried using File Explorer and clicked on the apk files (it is stored on my sd) and it did not even respond. Furthermore, I used File Manager and I tried to open the apk files and it said "file is not supported". This problem has never happened to me before!

    Also, I backed up one of my programs and I tried to re-run the apk files and it does not even work! This means that my apk files are not corrupted.

    Yes, I already restarted my phone, with the sd card removed, battery removed, and SIM card removed.

    I also made sure that install from unknown sources box is ticked in the settings.

    In addition to all of these problems, I do not even think I can install apps from the market! Each time I tried to install something, the download just abruptly ends and I just go back to the first page on the market.

    Anyone have any idea of what is going on?

    What, exactly, is an MB502?

    It is a Motorola Charm: Motorola Charm (MB502) Phone (T-Mobile) - Mobiledia

    The SD card works perfectly. My friend's phone easily open and install the APK files from my SD card. So, the problem lies within my phone. I do not want to factory reset it (last resort). Anyone have any ideas?

    I have the same problem on my Motorola Defy Plus.
    Has happened since updating from 2.3.4 to 2.3.5.

    When clicking the install button it does not even show the press.

    The only thing I can think of is to try and reformat the sd card then try and back up some more files then try and reinstall them.
