It looks like only Colordict so far. Do you have that one?

Whatever, it seems to work now. Don't know what happened there. Kill this thread.

No I was only trying Colordict and it kept saying "download unsuccessful." I'm just happy it works now. I was getting scared.

i went to an older version of hofo rom and it didn't work at first but then i rebooted and it worked again. so i'm gonna go back to the most recent hofo and see what happens...

tried it again on newest hofo and it won't download again. this time i tried with chris farley soundboard and it said "download unsuccessful"

it seems that anything that shows up as "protected" in the app, appmanager, cannot be downloaded. that's why i thought it was a root thing... but it seems to work on older hofo roms...
