Was able to download great, but installing the file failed three times in a row on my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant.  It said simply failed to install.  When I found the file later on my External SD card I tried an install.  got no message, but it looked for a while like it bricked my phone.  Phone came out of it with no install.  Now when I try to install again it tells me: "there is a problem parsing the package." 

I guess I will wait for more info or the full releaseCrying

Hey Patrick:

You probably already tried this, but did you allow non-Market apps to install? (Settings, Applications, Unknown Sources.)

I have a Galaxy S 4G (similar I think to the Vibrant) and it installed OK.

Yes, Robert, it is allowed.  I double checked just to make sure.  but the box is checked. Thanks for the response, I have learned long ago that sometimes the most unlikely solutions can solve the problem. 

thanks

I also have a Galaxy S but under Settings>Appilcations there is nothing about 3rd party applications, not on that menu or any of the 4 submenus. Any ideas?

Hi Kent:

right at the top mine has "unknown sources"  that has to be checked to allow non android market apps into your phone. 

By the way, I got mine to install.  I deleted the file from my phone, re downloaded and installed with "Installer" an app installer from the market place.  installed perfectly then.

thanks all

I also have a galaxy s w/ 2.2.  If there is a "unknown source" option I can't find it either.  I will try an installer app.

I forgot...Is there an installer app that works better than others?

Al:

I'm kind of new to the smart phone thing, but apparently some carriers are more tyrannical than others. i guess some of them aspire to be like the Mother of All Smart Phone Tyrants (begins with an "A").

I have the T-Mobile (US) variation of the Galaxy S 4G and the "Unknown sources" option is at the top of the list when Settings-->Applications is run. But don't tell Tmob, they might have left it open by mistake Wink

My "unknown sources" is right at the top after settings - applications.  I am runnig in Sasktel which is basically a Bell system with 2.2.

to install mine I used an installer named simply "Installer"  from the marketplace it has a gear logo similar to our settings logo and is made by rythm software.  It worked well for me. Big Smile

Thanks. Logos would not install to my Droid 2 Global either, but it would with the app installer.

ATT phones won't allow any apps not from the ATT marketplace to install.  I have not found a work around for this.  Anybody know how to get it to work?
