    There is another way to install applications (.apk files) via the SD card.
    1. Connect the i1 phone to your computer.
    2. Be sure the phone is in USB mode "Memory Card": Settings -> USB -> Memory Card
    3. Copy the .apk file into the "apps" folder.
    4. Disconnect from your computer.
    5. Run the Setup wizard (found in your applications tray).
    6. The Setup wizard has a step to install applications.
    You should be able to install any .apk this way.

    Over IDEN...of course!

    Oh...Wifi? How is your connection speed/strength?
    How is it that we give up houses, businesses and bank accounts when we want a divorce but can't part with a couple of hundred bucks to find cellphone bliss?

    the video is downloading fine the progress bar is way ahead of where I'm watching. Just seems like the phone doesn't have enough power and drops frames. Not to big of a deal it's by no means unwatchable.

    Is there an original source for the package? I don't trust anything from rapidshare.

    Ok I hooked up my phone to my computer. I opened up my phones folder. I do not see a folder called sd card or an apps folder. So where exactly do I go to save the youtube download?

    When you hook up an Android phone to a PC it shows up as a removable disk which is the SD card. Drop the .apk anywhere on that disk, root will make it easy to find. Then follow the OP's instructions.

    Unhappy

    This didn't work for me. Anyone know why I cant mount or format my SD card on my phone. But I can see all the folder of it when I plug my phone in my computer. I don't wanna have to go back to the store for help. Can someone help me please?

    I was able to locate the file I downloaded on the SD card on my phone to get the YouTube app to work.

    yeah I wish that would happen to but I think it's easier said then done. Moto says it took them a great while to bake iden into the device i don't know how easy it would be to get those components working on another ROM.
