Under settings> applications do you have unknown sources checked? If not, that is most likely your problem.

Some apps need to be installed via Root Explorer by placing it to some folder.

So why after so many attempts did it work? ??
Also why do some apps insist on only working from the phone memory and not external sd card, is my 64gb card going to be useless?
