Does your phone need to be rooted to install apk?

I was already rooted when I started adding them.

And yes d!ckblowers, I did google it and all I get is about the root of the sd card.

wtf did you google?

Are you on ATT? if not then:

1 - Menu button
2 - settings
3 - applications
4 - check off "unknown sources"

then astro to the directory and click the apk

if youre on ATT you gotta root though...

For those on carriers like ATT which lock down their phones you need a tool like the Android Sidleload Wonder Machine:


This is an app where you can add apps without needing to check off "unknown sources", if you get the app from the web and need to transfer from your PC to your phone......


APK are Andriod Package file, it is the file format that the android OS uses for applications.
