[Q] N00b here: rooted my NT, installed Market, etc., but can't run 3rd party apps
I just bought a Nook Tablet, and I'm already in love with the price and speed (I've loaded games like Shine Runner, and they run perfectly - I honestly didn't expect it!). I've spent quite a bit of time researching my issues and have not been able to fix some of them.
Anyway, my tablet came with 1.4.1 installed. I used this guide (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...466583&page=11
) to root my Nook. I had no problems. I then installed Market, have the Google apps running, added Go Launcher EX, and everything runs fine.
Except for third party apps and other things. Here are my issues.
1) Can't run NTHiddenSettings.apk or similar apps - when I use the Package Installer I get an error message about not being able to run the application (For security reasons, your phone is set to block installation of applications not obtained from Android Market), then I'm dumped to the hidden settings. I try to change the 3rd party app setting, but nothing happens. I've read a bit about it and it seems it has to do with 1.4.1.
2) Can't set Go Launcher EX as the default launcher. Actually, I can, but nothing happens. The Nook launcher is always the default. I've tried to clear the settings on the application manager, and I do get the prompt regarding which launcher I want to use - but it always uses the Nook one. I read the Newbie FAQ and it seems the usual way to get to the launcher is by using "Search" and running the app manually - that works. I only want to know if I can use the "N" button to run Go Launcher automatically.
I'm about to downgrade my NT to 1.4.0, since I can't find any other way to fix my issues. Or is there a way to keep 1.4.1 and run 3rd party apps and change my launcher?
Thanks for any help!
