    if you put the apk file in a folder on your sdcard then when you go to the folder and file in astro it lets you browse file or open app manager. open app manager and hit install. if it doesnt work you did something wrong.

    First off let's clear somethings up. Are u simply trying to install the apps? If so facebook is already there and u can dl pandora from market. Now if u are trying to push the smoked glass versions, u need to be rooted and have terminal installed or use adb. Let me know what's going on and we'll go from there.

    I installed both using adb: (adb shell or terminal emulator, and then)

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp -R /sdcard/Pandora.apk /system/app
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    and

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp -R /sdcard/Facebook.apk /system/app
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    credit and source for both are in this thread. Make sure the filenames (including capitalization) are correct, and that they are placed in the root of the sdcard and remaked to .apk files.

    Good luck!

    Are you running beautiful beast? I had that same problem initially, and it went away when I reinstalled busybox. I wasn't sure if it was specific to me or general to the rom though.

    (I couldn't find a working link to busybox so just used droidroothelper, but someone around here may have it.)
