    Just got my maxx (from droidx) and found that I am not able to Install non market apps. When I try to press install it does not respond, it will only let me cancel. What am I doing wrong? Yes I have "install from unknown sources" checked.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am guessing you are talking about "Unknown sources" and yes it is checked (green). I am not new to Android and my phone is rooted. I have never had issues with my DroidX

    I have an X, but am planning on getting a Maxx when my upgrade date is here. However, i have that problem all the time, even with market apps. I can download them, but when the install screen comes up, most of the time it wont work. But the cancel button does. I havent figured out any rhyme or reason for it. If I try again a day or so later, it will work, or it wont. Its really frustrating.

    If you find a solution to this, please post it. :)

    What particular app are you trying? I have installed one non-market app (TBH app) and it installed fine...

    I found if I uninstalled the market upgrade and reinstalled it, the problem went away.

    In my case, I had just SBF'd my phone and was reinstalling all my apps. Some I was getting directly from the market or Amazon, others I was getting from 'My Backup Pro.' This has been an ongoing issue for me for a long time. It doesnt always happen, but often enough to be frustrating. I have even tried rebooting the phone, didnt help.

    Its not a huge deal, but its still irritating.

    I had this problem, but had success by using a file manager program (mine came with CodenameDroid 1.2.0). I clicked on the programs in the download folder, and they opened from there.
