http://androidforums.com – Good evening, I wanted to install an .apk on my phone using a file manager such as Astro, but when i go to install it, it always says not downloaded. I tried using other file managers to install it to no avail. What am i doing wrong? Should i flash the .apk? Sounds silly but not sure what to do here. (General)
