seriously... did you look at any of the other threads? I know i've personnally answered this question at least twice...http://www.slatedroid.com/vbulletin...ome-Replacement-Root-Install-APK-instructionsheh... there's a mistype in there - should say"Install APK: same as "Home Replacement"ADB install <apk you want to install>.apk "instead of "apk install..."you need to be in the dos prompt. Type: adb install [dir][name]where [dir] is the directory the apk is in (c:novel if you're using "novel" folder on the c drive) and [name] is the name of the file [file.apk]if that doesn't work, tell us in detail what you're doing and what output you're getting.

[quote name='edit_text;18919]If you are in windows' date=' you can type "adb install " (yes, that is a space) and then drag you file onto the cmd window. It will apply the full path to that file. Saves a ton of typing.e_t[/QUOTE'] Awesome tip! Wish I would have know that two days ago! Adds the full path in quotes, so the apk file doesn't even need to be in the adb folder....very cool for us OCD folks that want to keep everything in separate folders.

You windows people... with your shortcuts and efficiency. Back in MY day, we didn't have MICE and FOLDERS, and we had to type with both arms chained to the DESK!!!

[quote name='lgrady;19190]ok I can copy th file path an paste it but even when I do cd first' date=' i still get the same message "adb" in not recognized as an internal or external cmd[/QUOTE'] And you're sure you are in the correct folder where the abd.exe file resides? For example, if you got the zip file from the post on this forum, there should be a "Hack-the-novel" folder that has the adb.exe file in it. So if you extracted that zip file directly to your C: drive (for example) then you would need to be at a command prompt as follows:C:Hack-the-novel>and your install command would look like:C:Hack-the-novel>adb install appName.apk (where "appName" is the name of the file you wish to install or the full path to said file)Sorry if you already know all this, but some people don't, so maybe this will help?

Thank you everyone for the continous information to improve using the novel. I have downloaded quite a few aps and decided some are no good. I have tried 2 commands to delete. abd uninstall "file name" and shell pm uninstall and both come up failure. What am I doing wrong, also what is the correct steps if a aps is a zip file. I am pretty sure this information is on the site, but not finding with searchesthank you in advance

install an uninstaller. There are at least two around. You might consider looking at the apps sticky.
