General :: How To Install APK Files Without Package Installer

Jan 21, 2014

installing an Android app without using the package installer.

Is there any way of installing an app through any other means than clicking on the .apk file in the folder?

Would it be possible to manually extract the apk archive and move the files to appropriate folders somewhere in /root/?

HTC Hero :: Package Installer - Allows To Install Apps

Sep 29, 2010

I believe the 'Package Installer' is the thing that allows me to install apps?

I've only just noticed it in my 'manage applications' - I'm sure it never used to appear at the top of the list - and I'm tight on memory - so when it takes up 13mb as it does now I'm a bit stuck.

Can I click 'clear data' on it - or will that remove apps? There is no option to clear cache - all 13mb is listed in the Data.

Android :: Failed To Install Apk File By Package Installer

Nov 24, 2010

I have some problem installing my apk file in code. Wondering if anyone could find out what I did wrong.
What I was trying to do is put a Check Upgrade function in our program. When user clicks it, it will send request to our web server and find out what is the latest version. I use app versionName to stamp a version, something like 2010.11.23. I don't use the version code in Manifest.xml file. So our program sees the latest VersionName is later than itself, it will download the latest one, and then use the following code to install the new apk file:


Now looks like, everytime when I changed the VersionName, it will fail to install the apk file. It downloads the file fine. I don't know exactly why. Sometimes, in Eclips, when I hit debug, I got error saying "Re-installation failed due to different application signatures". I don't know if this is the same error caused the installation failed.

So, looks like my questions are:

Should that upgrade logic work? I am wondering if it has something to do with the VersoinName.
What could cause the application signature change? (I did sign our program before I put it on our server, but I always use the same key file for different versionName. )

Android :: Free Space Required For Package Installer

Sep 7, 2009

The package installer looks to take up a good amount of space when installing applications. We've published a very large game (ProjectINF - 6mb). And it looks to be taking up a good amount of space during the install process, to the point that we have a lot of users emailing us with complaints/requests to "fix it".

From what we've seen, it looks to take about 22mb of free space to install a 6mb apk. While I can imagine taking double or so for unpacking and temp locations, almost 4x the size seems a bit high. After an install with 22mb free, the device has 16mb free (which makes perfect sense). Users also seem to be getting errors on the market when trying to install with less than that amount of space (with no real clear error message, just "Install Failed".

Android :: How To Access Other Package's Private Files?

May 24, 2009

I'm trying to find a way to access private files created by other packages.According to the dev site (plz see the following), I can read/write files of other packages if some flags are set on the create of those files, but I don't know how. Can I just open those files with Context.openFileInput(or Context.openFileOutput)? Do I need a different way for those three cases? By three cases, I mean getSharedPreferences(String, int), openFileOutput(String, int), openOrCreateDatabase(String, int, SQLiteDatabase.CursorFactory).

General :: Using Find Command To Install APK Files?

Dec 11, 2013

I would like to "deploy" .apk files to a set of tablets for student use in the school. Every now and then I will be required to install new apps across a range of devices. I have sorted out the transfer of the apk files to the tablets using an app called "FolderSync" so that the files will be local on the SD Card. Hopefully this part should not be problematic. Due to the fact that the tablets will be used by students, I want to make the process of installing the apps as automated as possible. Using the command "pm install <app.apk>" command I have achieved this step also. My trouble is that I will require the script to improvise and find all apk files in a folder and install them. So far I have tried the following:

cd /sdcard/FolderSync/
find *.apk -exec "pm install {}" ;

However this returns "find: pm install app.apk: No such file or directory" This may be more of a Linux issue than android, or maybe even just me missing something obvious, however I have tried adjusting the syntax here and there and can't figure out how to successfully install a directory of .apk files.

Android :: Install Error - Parsing The Package - Occurring For One Specific Device

Jan 21, 2010

My .apk file is confirmed working, however for users of the Motorola Milestone (which runs the same android version 2.0 and up) they receive the error upon attempt to install. I've googled and searched through the other questions here. The error seems to normally only appear if you did something wrong in the signing wizard or renamed the file. Is it possible that some kind of software difference on the OS build on these Milestones is preventing the install?

General :: Qmobile A10 Not Working After Using Font Installer

May 28, 2013

I use Qmobile A10. i rooted it long ago and it's working. I used font installer (root required) and used a font.. rebooted then it worked. When i opened my phone, i installed another font after that uninstalling font installer. Then it asked me to reboot.. Then it kept showing this logo for qmobile a10 when opening the phone. Awkwardly, it didn't start for a very very long time.. I left it open for 4 hours, then 1 day. Then a day and a half. I though that i should probably connect the phone to my PC and take out the new font. But it's not showing on "My Computer".

Any cool games that suits qmobile a10?*
