Hi Joel,

Could I ask you - I live and teach English in China :-) I bought my phone in China (a legit and established store), but there are some apps I can't uninstall, like the default internet browser. After turning off 'do not allow unknown apps' (or whatever), I still can't download or uninstall much.

Is rooting one's phone really tampering with it? Could it be a risk? Or no harm really?

I'd appreciate your advice : )

I had the same problem while using Play Store through Firefox, but when I used the Play Store app everything started downloading.

This is what worked for me. On Firefox, in Play Store the app download was interrupted but it still showed "Installed". Tried clearing the cache, rebooting the phone, syncing my Google account, etc. Finally saw Jon Jonsson's post, went to the Play Store app on my phone and the app downloaded and installed just fine.

I went to the play store on my phone instead of PC and it let me install.
