    I need some help installing an app...

    Ok, yes, I'm unlocked and rooted. There is an app that I had prior called Omega Personal Assistant that worked on stock 4.0.2. Running a stock 4.0.4 now, and the app isn't listed in the market, not compatible with 4.0.4 yet. I'd like to try to install it anyway.

    I tried using the trick for installing Google Wallet, where you trick the browser into opening a Market link to the app. I got to the correct page, but screen said incompatible with your device.

    Then I tried to find the apk for the app on my OG Droid. I thought I had found it, ended in .apk, but the size was too small.

    I'm out of ideas lol. Is this even possible or am I just wasting my time?

    The app was probably too small on your OG due to app2SD or some variation of it, or at least I am assuming. Try and make sure the app isn't installed on your sd card on your OG Droid.

    You could alternatively make a backup of your current build on your Nexus, reflash a ROM where the app works (restore a nandroid if you made one). Download the app, make a backup of the app, then restore the backup.

    Yeah, it's not partitioned with A2SD. Also, to clarify a bit more, the only apk I could find for the app was in /data/app-private, I believe. Not in /data/app where most of my other apks are. Looks like my best bet is to do what you mentioned. Flash back to compatible rom and titanium backup that piece of **** lol. Thanks.
