This afternoon, my phone started to act really strange, it started to show options that are usually only present on the Gnex browser..

but when I wanted to install an app made by my friend, the phone told me my memory was full and directed me to the 'manage apps' settings, where I noticed that there was another Gnex button..

I tried wiping cache+dalvik cache and I even fixed permissions, but neither of these things worked. So please help me!!

But I still can't install my friends app... tried it with an other 3rd party app, but that one doesn't work either

Without an error message or the name of the app, we can't help you.

Edit: Nevermind, seen your message. Are you trying to pirate an app per chance? If you have any .odex files, in /data/app with the same name as the app, which could get created if you're trying to pirate an app, that could pose a problem with the install.

Make sure you have enough space on your "external" memory too, not just internal. Some apps will need to install additional data to the SDcard and show you that warning.

Nope, its not a pirated app, still thanks, think I'm going to flash a new rom, as it also is getting buggier and laggier. But still I would like to thanks you!

    Using a CM10 based ROM maybe?
    Go to Settings > System > Physical buttons > Show app button (or something similar, uncheck it)

    Then reboot.
