I cannot install any non-market apps. I can download the app. When I go to install the app I my Thunderbolt doesn't recognize me pressing "Install". It recognizes me pressing "Cancel"
As best I can tell this started occurring after updating to GB. I am not rooted. I would really like to get Amazon Marketplace. I have checked and re-checked Settings --> Applications --> Allow installation of non-Market applications and I have the check-mark selected. I have deleted and re-downloaded both Amazon Marketplace and swype.
I searched and couldn't find anyone else with this problem or a solution to this problem. Thanks!
Neither swype nor amazon marketplace will install. Those are the only two non-market apps I have tried. What is interesting about both is I used to have them installed.
With Amazon marketplace I found an app I wanted, OfficeSuite, (on one of those amazon special pricing for 24 hours), thus requiring me to install Amazon marketplace. It installed as did the app. A couple weeks later I found another amazon app I wanted, it refused to install. I deleted the download and tried again.(like you, thinking maybe there is an issue). I finally amazon marketplace thinking maybe the entire marketplace was corrupted. marketplace will no re-install.
SWYPE (beta, i think) requires me to update it whenever there is an update to beta, with the last update it refused to install. I deleted the swype installation/downloader thinking maybe it was corrupt. It would not install.
At this point, there is the only pattern I have found. The only big change in my TBolt's life (that I can think of) has been the GB update.
Those are the only two non-Android/Google-Market apps I have tried downloading.
The only thing I can think of is that some has been installed that blocks the eideload option, try installing in safe mode..
Correction for last post to make things clearer..
The only thing I can think of is that something has been installed that blocks the sideload option, try installing application when booted into safe mode..
GB isn't the problen. i can install non-market apps.
I 100% agree, I havent seen any issues on either of my TB devices...
Thank you all for your suggestions. I appreciate your help.
I also have the HTC Thunderbolt and have not had this issue. If you are still unable to install third party application after the suggestions provided by your fellow community members I suggest you performing a hard reset. This should fix the issue you are having.
Please post back if you need further assistance.
