you should just be able to sideload those apks even without root or messing with the internal storage.

I found out that the custom lock screen is what was causing on screen navigation buttons to disappear. As far as I can tell it's any lock screen replacement that will cause the problem.

Try uninstalling gmail, then the lockscreen. The nav bar should still be there. I had a similar issue with an odd fix. It seems like most people agree on gmail notifications causing the issue....for some reason. I think somewhere in gmail you can disable notifications and that would work, but I remember having issues getting into gmail. I think re-installing gmail made it work, but I'm not positive. I'd prefer using a new lockscreen, and the browser for gmail though :P

Yeah I deleted the lock screen app I installed and just disabled ads so far I've never been able to get gmail to work at all.

I found another app to make our transformation a step closer to full ICS functionality! Adds back in multitasking similar to stock ICS not quite as pretty but it works.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...skmanager.free I'm probably going to have to ge the pro-version to white list a few apps though..

EDIT: Found this one it has a lot more function out of box. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...icstaskmanager

I then tried to install adt bundle. I clicked the SDK Manager and all I get is a flash on the screen then nothing.
Yes I Enabled ADB and even tried the "Allow installation of applications" under the Device tab. Still nothing. What else should i try?


Do you have the Java JDK(not JRE) installed? You need to install it in order to make Android SDK work.
