Android :: Installing Astro File Manager Without Market
Sep 16, 2010
Is there a way to install apps without service to my Motorola Droid. See I have currently suspended my contract due to a deployment overseas. Obviously my Droid only works in the states, but I was wondering is there a way to install apps on my phone via usb and the inet connection on my laptop?
I have the HTC Incredible and my phone started saving photos to phone memory, instead of the SD card. I want to move the photos with Astro File Manager from emmc/DCIM/100MEDIA to the SD card. Is there a way (with Astro or anything else) where I can move all the photos from phone memory to the SD card?
My lil brother has a Samsung epic and it has a built in task killer. I was wondering do I need one for my HTC Evo. If I search google and then go back to home page google is still running in the background right? I saw somewhere that the astro file manager has a built in task killer.
ok so i was playing around with trying to get the stoick mms to install over the twmms.apk and i finally got it working.First of all, if you don't have astro file manager, go download from the market cause you will need it. next go to this link and download the Modified Mms.apk and put it on your sdcard.
Modified Mms.apk-Turn-off debug mode, stop application from lagging [Updated: 08/21] - xda-developers.Now travel to the saved mms.apk on your sdcard and click in it to install and click upgrade.that's it. Now you should have the stock mms.apk.
I'm at a loss trying to get Astro to communicate with my Windows XP home computer. I downloaded the SMB module for my MotoDroid, but am not really clear on how to configure my Windows Networking settings and what exactly needs to be entered in Astro's configuration settings. Is there a guide on how to do this on the web?.. if so, I haven't been able to find it.
Now I am slightly new to the android game. Had a D1 that I traded for and I loved it. Used Astro File manager on there to get swype when it was available. I hear about this app and how it is great and you need it. I have downloaded it and I am not really 100% positive on its purpose. Is it just an easy way to delete files? Are there files I shouldn't delete?
I just noticed that Astro has a built-in task killer. (Please no more about if we NEED a task killer) What I like about the killer on astro is that it lets me see how much memory and cpu a task or process is actually using before I kill it. I rarely use a task killer. Only when a task seems to be hanging up. It looks like Astro has the functionality I need, so I will remove Advanced Task Killer.
I want to make sure that I backed up everything before I upgrade. Mybackup Pro trial edition backed up my contacts, call logs, text logs, bookmarks, home screens, SMS, MMS, settings, calendar.Astro File Manager backed up my apps.Do I need to back-up anything else?
This is for all of you who are having troubles getting your application "Wireless Tether for Root Users" to work. I personally kept getting an error on which would say "Initializing WiFi Interface: Failed." I have since been able to get it to work. Here's how.
Disclaimer: Obviously you need a rooted phone for this to work, We're in Root forums for a reason. You will also need the Amon Recovery Partition. Steps: 1. Boot phone into Recovery by holding Volume Up + Power (End Button). 2. Wipe phone of all data. 3. Flash to the 0_3 rom, install Astro File Manager from the Market 4. Download and install file from below and place into phones SD card. 5. Install from Astro by opening it in App Manger, Open up application and enjoy! Wireless Tether!
Instead of installing another program I would rather just use Astro's process manager, it works plenty well for what I want now.I know you can use Anycut to rename and create shortcuts to most things, but is there a way to create a shortcut to a function within a program? If not with Anycut, maybe a different program?
I am not able to send any files through bluetooth using astro file manager.whenever i try to send the file its just show below error:--"cannot sent :Unknown file 0 bytes".i am using HTC legend (non rooted). Although i can send music or video files through default app.But i want to send other type of files also using astro.I have tried googling bt didnt find any solution.
I have tried to update the default youtube app on my nexus one (Froyo) numerous times. I get the message "Error Installing - Package file was not signed correctly". I am trying to upgrade from 1.6.21 to 2.0.26.I have tried unmounting my SD card, clearing the cache for the android market, the download manager and the original youtube app.
Not sure if anyone has noticed or if its just my phone.Im running the OTA2.1 rooted with the Aloysius Rom(has happened with other roms also) and it seems like every app that i have installed through Astro Manager doesnt show/update in the market.is anyone else having this problem whether your phone is stock or rooted?
New Moto Droid X here. I was having trouble updating my " my verizon " app today and kept getting the message installation error package was not signed correctly. i read to delete the app and reinstall, but after i found out that the ota update coming out tomorrow supposed to fix this but i already went in the sys file with astro and deleted the verizon apk and astro said it was successful. is this possible to delete factory apps with astro did i screw my phone up
How come this is the only file manager on the market (that I've found... I went through quite a few) that can open an HTML file from your SD card? I was a loyal user of Estrogen until I found that it couldn't.
I have connected my HTC Desire to a samba share where I have my music, movies, etc, but I cannot make Desire play any of the mp3, movies, and I cannot see any photos either? I am using Astro File Manager.
I get no kind of error messages just a black screen with a little icon (which I don't remember right now.) Anyone got an idea of what could be wrong?
Just plucked up the courage to root my Desire. And now want to have a go at installing Froyo and looking for the easiest way. I've looked at ROM Manager and was wondering if its worth getting the paid version as it says you can get all the popular ROMs downloaded to your phone. Was wondering how good this app is and if anyone has had problems with getting the ROMs.
I tried to install a theme in ROM manager but I installed it as a ROM. I don't know if this is the problem but honestly everything is force closing now. I have the Sm0KeD FroZeN YoGurT theme right now.
So I have been hearing/reading about File Managers, and I am just not sure if this is really a necessary thing? Am relatively new to the smartphone scene, but so far am enjoying my HTC Desire immensely.What are the pro's and con's of a File Manager? As a noob, is this something I even need? My phone is not rooted.I assume a file manager is to look at the contents of the SD card and move things around, but since my phone is so smart doesn't it do this already, putting things where they should be? Maybe I misunderstand the File Manager application? How many users have a File Manager?
There are a great many file managers available for android, and new ones appear frequently. For instance, a real innovative one (with drag-and-drop, continuous zoom in all view, advanced multi-touch support and much more unique features) is ScaliCommander.If you have tried some file managers, which do you like most and why?
I have a technical issue which means I can't install from the market.If there's an app I need, is there a way I get hold of the .apk file another way, and then install it after sending it to my email account?
