I am getting a message (This application comes from an unknown source, and for your security only applications from trusted sources can be installed) phone = Motorola Atrix on AT&T.

 

If you are unable to install the application, go to Settings -> Applications and unsure "Unknown sources" is checked.

Is not shown in my menus

I got this off of the XDA dev forum

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK....!!!!!

Download Root Explorer and SQLight Editor (both on the market)

1. Use "RootExplorer" take you to
/data/data/com.motorola.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db/settings

2. click on the "Value" column of "force_only_market_apps"
3. Press "menu" button and select "Edit Field"
4. Change "1" to "0", then save.

Without even doing a factory reset or just a regular reboot you should have an unknown sources box available in your settings>applications.

Thanks Robert

   I have found another option (side load wonder machine) no rooting of the phone needed. I'll post my results.

Why do these guys (AT&T) want to be like Apple? After all, these phones belong to us.
