    Open it up. If it has a file named Pandora.apk, the extract Pandora .apk, put on your sd card, install with astro. If it doesn't have that file, rename the .zip portion to .apk and install it with astro.

    so i followed the instructions to the T. then i went into command prompt and typed in the stuff and nothing happens. i know i'm doing something wrong but don't know what because i've read the thing like 20x.

    I have astro, root explorer, mm, terminal emulator, rom manager. can i use any of these to install this?

    so i've been reading some random posts and ran into someone talking about using root explorer to push the apk file. so i loaded it into my sd card moved it to system/app then renamed it to apk changed permission to 644 and hit install. after all said and done it said could not install.

    am i doing this correct?
