The two that bother me right now are 'Lookout Mobile Security' and 'Firefox for Android'. If I search Google Play, neither show up in search results. If I use the browser and go directly to either Firefox's or Lookout's site to install, I get redirected to Google Play and the Install button in both cases is grayed out and nothing happens.
And I'm very unhappy that I can no longer download the apks using my computer and side load/install it.
I'm on a standard Nook Color, with the newest stable release running in EMMC:
Android version: 2.3.7
Kernel version: 188.8.131.52
Mod version: CyanogenMod 7.1.0-encore
Build No: GWK74
Everything else works fine and I have no other problems or complaints.
Can someone give me some things to try and get this working???
You can download Firefox_10_0_multi.apk
from several sites. The md5 of all downloads I tried is 3c490ee533fae7166fa589aa88ba59f1
. I have not had, or found any reference to, any problems with it. I just downloaded it again from http://fiberupload.com/v1r9xzkzpbr8
I have also downloaded and am now using Firefox v10.0.1.apk
. Its md5 is 59a29173879c040ca781299f7b193197
. I don't have any more info about it at hand and don't have time now to look it up. Should be easy to find, though!
BTW, I don't, as a matter of principle, register my devices with Google
, nor with Barnes and Noble
. I believe in anonymity, where possible, vis-a-vis the government and corporations that cooperate with it.
