1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    This is really just a little story, and if you have any ideas to help me out let me know, please... haha.

    So I woke up early this morning and decided to port my Luna Theme over to the new Sapphire ROM. I finished JUST in time to go to work so I tossed the Theme zip, Sapphire zip, and Google Apps zip on my SD card and renamed the ROM to update.zip...

    Right when I got to work I went into recovery and wiped my Droid clean and installed Sapphire. Now I am booted up and everything works great, but I need to change the Google Apps to 'update.zip' to install it, but I can't get into my card at all. I have no file explorer and no market (hence no google apps yet) and I don't know what to do.

    I had the idea to bluetooth my Droid to my one office computer to change it. It paired, but then after opening 'my computer' the computer just flat out died. It's a real old crappy PC here. But it just flat lined and is on the blank desktop now (been for about 15 mins). So I then thought I will just put the micro SD in the card reader we have here! Well I tried on one PC and it wouldn't find my card?! Then I put it in the last 3/3 computer and nothing... It must be broken?

    Damn you technology! What else?.... Any ideas?

    Nothing like going into the office and starting the day off with a couple hours of not working. Your manager would be proud.

    Haha well it's me and my boss that work here, thats it. Plus I surely HAVE been working the whole time while also trying to find out how to just change my SD file. Yes though, I am being sneaky trying not to let him know I am multitasking...

    Just curious. How does your employer react to spending your day working on your phone? :)

    Edit: I see someone else had the same question.

    Cakes, you never fail to rescue. Still if I download the APK, could I then just click it to install since I don't have a file manager?

    jsh1120 - Haha as I have said, I am working a lot and doing this at the same time. It's a really chill job here so nothing crazy. I have done worse at work... Haha.

    I was thinking that you wouldn't be able to install it since you don't have a file manager, but maybe if she sends it to your Gmail, it'll work.

    Naa, I am at work so I don't have my USB cord. I wish. I am looking in the browser now for a Astro APK download, however the one said in permissions while installing that it needs full internet access and I wasn't sure if the real app does, so I got paranoid and quit... haha.
