I'm glad to present my first xposed module: DirectAPKInstall
[What it is]
DirectAPKInstall is a PackageInstaller mod which avoid enabling and disabling "Unknown sources" every single time you need to manually install an APK.
Usually, when you try to install an apk without having "Unknown sources" enabled, an alert stops the installation; this mod replace that alert showing you an alternative pop-up which permits you to install anyway the package without enabling "Unknown sources".
It's an alternative to the "Get in the settings, enable unknown sources, install the package and disable unknown sources" procedure
The module was tested on a Galaxy S3 with CM11; I'm pretty sure it will work on any device with Android OS 4.0+.
If it does not work on your device or it works on a version of Android prior to 4.0 let me know in the comments!
Ehm... OK, good work,
but, is it not better to enable unknow sources by default?
why use it instead?
Sure you can enable "Unknown sources", but there are some people (like me) who don't like leaving it always enabled for various reasons (it's a possible security issue in my opinion).
So I've developed this mod in order to avoid the "Get in the settings, enable unknown sources, install the package and disable unknown sources" procedure I had to do every time I installed an apk.
-> Samsung Galaxy S3 - CM11
-> Asus Nexus 7 (2012) - Stock 4.4 + Multirom (CM11, Ubuntu)
-> Google Nexus S - Died (hardbricked - gone)
-> DirectAPKInstall (Xposed Mod) -> Here
-> Ubuntu Touch on Nexus S - Discontinued (lack of time - phone unusable )
For Xposed installations I have set up a tasker profile allowing me to install modules and updates right away, and switching off when I leave the xposed installer. But if I install them from my browser,I get the"nag screen"
