    I have a few apps on my Micro SD, and I cannot seem to install any of them because an error comes up saying it's not from a trusted source. I am useing a MOTOROLA FLIPSIDE, there are no setting in the phone itself. I have read somewhere in the forums that I can install the apps using the SDK somehow. Can anyone provide me with a step-by-step for this? Thanks!

    You can't check "Unknown sources" on Settings, Applications ... ?

    Unfortunately no. There is no such option.

    I will have to pass you over to the control of the Root experts here on the forums karmaidiot:
    Flipside - All Things Root - Android Forums

    They should be able to assist you in all your rooting needs. :)
