    use your pc mate

    first on your phone

    firs go to settings->
    and turn on UNKNOWN SOURCES


    go to settings->applications->development
    turn usb debugging on

    now connect your phone to your pc
    copy the astro file anywhere you want

    download the attachment
    extract all three files to your windows/system32
    open CMD

    adb install /path/name.apk

    for example if your apk name is ASTRO.apk and is in C:/ DRIVE

    do this

    adb install c:\astro.apk

    make sure the path or file name have no spaces

    @ suhel28: it says adb is not recognize as an external or internal command and some other errors I include the image on my first post.

    @lupazj: does my PC OS made the conflict or the Anti Virus? im using windows 7 64- bit and kaspersky for my AV.

    Did you rebooted it ? :)
    Download SuperOneClick software (you can find it here in some topic) and try to copy those 3 files from this soft. they are included in the root of the programme as you unzip it ;)

    uhmm,,, why don't you download it from the market???
    why don't you use your browser, google it and install it?
    if you are using WIN7 than make a new folder, put those three files, cd the path and than try the command.

    Hi suhel,It just happen that the x8 that i've purchased here in middle east don't have the android market, what I mean when I said i'm confused that evry time I googled it, some other websites giving links to other websites after you go to that websites they will give you link to another one, and some saying to install sdk , some says about rooting which really I dont understand. I'm sorry for the bother.:(

    what do you mean by cd the path?

    googling is an art.....

    ok here am I first search on google and I got the direct link (well I can post it up, its a freeware software)

    astro 2.5.2.apk

    ok in order to run android market in middle east you can try this...

    1. market

    2. market enabler

    enable market enabler and your market will work

    think u are using the incorrect filepath

    when running the code

    use the location of the .apk file on ur phone, not on ur PC
