Hi,

I am unable to install unknown sources apk. My settings are already enabled for unknown sources in the security section. May I know how I can resolve this? It is the same for all apks that I have downloaded. I am not rooted.

Thanks

Ok I subsequently found the problem. It's due a software screen filter that I have on. Once I disabled it everything works fine. Weird but it works

Hahah, I know exactly what you're talking about. I had the same issue on my Galaxy Note. I noticed that it wouldn't install unknown APK every time I lay in bed at night, until I switched off the filter and then it worked.

Just imagine how many people have had or are having issues with this right now
