How do you download them, and what do you use to install?

Can you give an example of an app that won't install and a link to where you are downloading it from?

im thinking hes maybe downloading direct links to ipk's and likely getting the usual weird download names, sometimes you get weird download files with a jumble of letters/numbers such as J7a1f88ca1F, which can be remedied by just renaming that file (likely in /media/internal/downloads) to something like validfilename.ipk and clicking it in internalZ, or maybe hes downloading them in a browser other than stock and getting a mime type error.

or yeah also maybe several other reasons, hard to tell as you said without exact info.

ah right im just a tad confused as he does mention this site and failing to get preware running, then confused me a bit more mentioning pcsuite which i think is for a totally different model/line of phones altogether?
