    Cannot Press Install Button

    hey guys, need some help. After upgrading to the new 2.3.4 my nexus s has the problem of unable to install apk files. When trying to install the app, i cannot press the install button. However, I can press the cancel button. It is weird. If I restart the phone then I can install one app and the problem occurs again.

    Anyone know what is going on?

    Thanks.

    What method are you using to flash the apk files?

    I tried both astro , linda, and applinstaller. All give the same result. I just restarted my phone and i am still unable to install the apk file.

    I know the apk files are fine, since I tried reinstalling old ones that I already have on the phone and still no luck.

    My phone is not rooted running stock 2.3.4.

    Try this:
    Menu> Settings> Applications> Manage Applications> All tab, then find Google Services Framework and delete data. Find Market and delete cache. Reboot...

    Hey I tried it. But I need a solution which doesn't require reboot. Because usually once I reboot, I can install. It is very weird.

    This solution should only require a single reboot, them your phone should be working normally again...

    I tried your method, but the problem is occurring again today.

    Can you just try unmounting the SD, and see if that makes a difference?

    Just tried. Still no go. I think my last resort will be to do a factory reset, but I don't want to lose all my apps and what not. Huge pain.

    Do you know if I do factory reset, will it go back to 2.3.3? Or stay at 2.3.4..?

    This videochat on googletalk is not worth this much trouble =.=

    Factory reset doesn't wipe the ROM so you will still be on 2.3.4 but it might still fix your problem if it is something in your phones data messing it up but it only might it's not guarantied.
