[Q] Sideload apps: is root needed?
Okay, so I'm getting a NST on Monday as a gift.
However, I'm HEAVILY vested into the Amazon/Kindle environment, and would like to install the Kindle app without having to root the device.
I've only rooted ONE device in my entire life, and the method I used was drag and drop the zip file onto the device's main directory, then reboot the device. It worked beautifully, and I was able to put Google Apps/Services onto a Coby MID7048 tablet. I would have NO clue about ADB and/or NookManager.
Would it be possible to download the Kindle APK file and install it from either a SD card or directly on the NST itself without rooting it?
Thanks for any help.
