Howto: Install non-authorized apk files on AT&T android phones

I don’t know why this has to be so difficult, but these are the steps I took to install my development apk file to a test droid phone:

  1. Make sure I have the Android SDK installed on my PC (Required for Droid Explorer)
  2. Download and install HTC Sync – If the htc site search is broken, Google to the rescue
  3. Connect the phone to your PC via USB and select HTC Sync as the connection type
  4. Download and install Droid Explorer from
  5. Right click the apk file and select install
Hope this helps someone…
