So... I have a rooted locked (unlockable) stock XZ 6602 with CWM recovery, and no screen filter, adjuster or similar apps installed.
I am able to click the cancel button but nothing happens when I click the install button for apks...

any ideas apart from doing a data/cahe wipe?

btw does the CWM recovery wipe data option wipes both the SD and external SD cards?

thanks!

Do you have screen filter or an app that changes screen brightness or colour?

If so that can cause it.

Press thanks if I helped.

As indycar stated, just clarifying a bit more, because it is not in an obvious area. Settings, Security, then scoll down to Unknown Sources.

I do not have any screen filters or similar installed, and I have the unknown source ticked.
Also I have tried to use the Astro and ES file managers. None of that worked.

I mean I have googled quite abit before I posted here like always. Thanks very much for all the replies, just wondering if there are any other suggestions?

thanks everyone, i found the cause, it was an app called Glovebox that blocked all apk installations! the newest update solves the problem, or at least it pauses itself.

It is actually stated on their official website http://fbarrosoapps.com/glovebox/

"Q: Am i unable to install other apps while the app is running?
A: For security reasons android automatically blocks the installation of other apps while Glovebox is running, to prevent installations without your consent. You have to disable the app and re-enable it again after the installation."

Found another cause... one of those that overlays a "battery bar" on top of the screen will do the same thing.
