  • This happened to my mobile from one day to the other. Suddenly all apk which I copy to my mobile (on the sdcard) do not get installed. All others which are already on the card do get installed. Copying the apk to root does not help neither. Copying them to google drive does work – but is too much work and I do not like google. Downloading them to the mobiel directly (same link – same apk)
