Guys,

I'm so angry , I just rooted the nook glowlight and am unable to install any apk files.

I'm always getting "there is a problem parsing the package", whatever I found on the internet

Is there no file explorer by default on it ? And why this parse error ?

And most websites just crash, grrr

Anyone, anyone please anyone : HELP MEEEE

Do you have ADB working? Can you see a logcat?
Do you know that these APKs are actually good and designed for API level 7?

Also, is installation of apps from unknown sources enabled in nook color tools? Most (all?) of the NST rooting packages include it, but you do have to set the flag to get packages found via the internet (rather than the google store) and copied to the device to install.

I get that error sometimes when downloading .apk files from some sites. Your browser might not be downloading the file with the correct filetype suffix. Can you see if it has the .apk suffix on it? I've found that some browsers do better than others with handling this file-type. If you can get xScope browser or Opera Mobile I think those were better. It's also possible that a retry of the download will work, or that the file itself is just bad.

A logcat will tell you exactly what the problem is.
Use ADB and get a logcat.

Are you sure these apks are compatible with Android 2.1 Eclair? Not everything will work. Which programs are you trying to install specifically?

I haven't thought of that. but you're probably right.
I'm surprised the error message is not more obvious though.

Wrong forum.

Try installing any other package with requirements : 2.1+

In Settings check "Allow Installation of Non-Market Apps" .
Install apk from SDCARD.
I'm 90% sure you are just trying to install a package not compatible with A 2.1.
