Default I was able to install astro filemanager through downloaded apk

I was able to install astro file manager via apk. I had to allow outside sites. I usd the package manager when prompted and open after install. I was able to see the system files but i tried to copy them to my sd card with no luck. This does not create a link on the shelf and i dont know how to launch it unless i reinstall from the downloads in the browser. I also attempted other apk some worked others did not. Not sure if this helps anyone I m not a developer just fooling around at Mc donalds playing with my new nook tablet. Maybe this info is already out their if so im sorry.

How about trying to install a launcher like Go Launcher? The Kindle Fire people have some type of success with Go Launcher.

Have you tried rebooting after installing to see if icons appear?

you'll need a launcher to be able to see your apps. The nook hasn't shown the BN installed apps and the user installed apps in the same place since 1.1.

Very interesting if Zeam or Go are installable. My memory is that the old BN app installer would not install non-BN apps.

I tried a reboot no luck. I Also tried to install the apps from the download location after reboot. I get a problem parsing the file. This could be because temporary internet cache is cleared after reboot not sure.

I have Go running right now on mine and it rebooted into it automatically. If I home button, it goes back to the Nook default UI and I haven't found a way to get back to Go yet.

I have File Expert, Market, G Books all installed as well as the Google services APK. Can't log into market yet. I'm a total n00b on this so if more experienced people have advice, let me know.
