    Like the title says i downloaded the apk from xda for the 3.4.7 market and i can download it but it wont install.
    Im running a vortex rom and i wouldnt think stops it. Anyone have any ideas to make it install.
    Also i did clear data and cache from the original market

    Go to your manage apps screen. One of the choices should be to allow non-market apps. Make sure that box is checked.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    Not the zip just the apk. Don't install it. Just move it to /system/apps.
