Default How to install apps from unknown sources (easy after root)

Now I can install .apk files from Chrome/Dropbox /es file explorer!!!!.................So I did this by accident I was trying to mess with the keyboard setting in the root folders and I got a setting popup.

1. You must have root

2. Es File explorer / turn on Root Explorer

3. navigate to /Device/System/app/

4. all I did was click on BuellerIME.apk and a pop up settings menu came up, from there a settings menu with unknown sources in it appeared. I checked unknown sources and that was that

Just tried it an it didn't work for me. When I launcher the app it only gave me the option to "Install" and said "Would you like to update this system application..." so I backed out. I'll stick to the other method.

It didn't work for me either. After I clicked the settings, no further menu appeared so that I can't check unknown.
