Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

Hey everyone. I`m getting a similar problem to other people here as well, in terms of not being able to install it. I`ve tried downloading it on my computer and transferring it to my SD card, then installing it with the OI app, but it always seems to say "Application Not Installed". Is there anything I can do to fix this? The .apk file I downloaded was about 2.28 in size...

Thank you!

Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

I installed this on my phone without using a computer or file manager. It was a while ago, but very straightforward. I just allowed the installation of non-market applications and downloaded the file from one of uliwooly's links. When it had finished loading on to the phone, it asked if I wished to install it. I said yes, and the app is more happily installed on my phone.

Have you and others tried this? It is by far the easiest way to do so if it works for you. I haven't rooted my phone or anything else unusual.
