    Is there a way to copy apk files on the sd card into the phone memory?

    I'm having an odd install issue, and found today I can get around it by installing without the sd card in.

    I'm sure one of the file managers must be able to copy apk files to the phones own memory, but wouldn't know where to store them for installation.

    Ideas?

    i know for some apps, you use root explorer to copy the apk into /system/app. then long press on the apk, select permissions and change them to look like this:



    reboot and it should be in your app drawer

    It looks like when you do that it does not need to be installed. Is that correct?

    once it is in /system/app with those permissions, it does not need to be installed, it should show up after reboot.

    Very cool. I'll try this workaround for now. Hopefully somone will pop in and come up with a solution to actually fix the issue.

    The new aldiko 2.0. I can't install from marketplace because of the error.
    I even tried downloading it on my wifes phone, backing it up, move it to my sd card and then install it, but that also fails.

    And this is just the most recent issue. I can't buy and install any large games, or many, MANY larger apps, paid or ad supported. Heck I even tried one of the more realistic voice replacements, and while the original driver would install, none of the voice pack add ons would.

    There aren't a ton of really big things I need to install, but it would be nice to have pocket legends, dungeon defenders, and the some of the other advanced games as time killers.

    I figured since big games were out, a good ebook reader would be nice, but of course, can't install em.

    Error #18-unknown error. It started happening with froyo about Nov., and continued even after the soak update.

    I reformatted my sd card thinking that could be the issue, but that had no affect. (Other than annoying me reinstalling 8 gig of music.)

    And its only larger apps-smaller ones all install and uninstall fine. The phone had more than 4 gig free, and the sd card has no less than 5 gig free currently, so available space isn't an issue. I'm almost to the point of stopping in the verizon store with it, but I hate like hell to have to set everything back up all over again.
