Hi everyone,

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

[Screenshots]
Before:

After:


[Downloads]

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!
Code:
Plugin: http://repo.xposed.info/module/it.ma...rectapkinstall
Source code: it will be available soon
Hope you like it

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.

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"

Thanks, this is exactly what I need

I don't see how its a security issue to just leave unknown sources enabled

hi, on ICS I found it opens the install screen in Xposed installer, but doesn't do anything... stays black but the top row with the application's name ...

Disabled, and installation works again.

Done with "unknown sourced" enabled.

I think the only added security of this module is that by leaving unknown sources on, you will get a prompt every time you try to install such on the device so you know when the source is unknown.

But the source is *always* unknown

Googling and found this... https://securitystreet.jive-mobile.c...2Fposts%2F6219

Dont know how true it is.. but i think this module is great for our own precautions . I've xperienced before on some mtk devices installing chinese apk which i know it's not part of system apk that comes with device's rom nor downloaded/installed by myself (tho it's just contains chinese apps link/ads and once installed it's hard to be removed.

Thanks to @Matsca09 for this module. Works on Zenfone 5.
