    Default Install from unknown source: flash

    Is there a way to open this setting without rooting? For some reason, I equated having the play store to having full Android. Silly me. B&N still has third party installs blocked "for my protection." How thoughtful.

    Go to XDA - they've got it well spelled out. Check out [ROOT/GAPPS] HD/HDplus Stock Root and other Mods - via CWM flashable zips - xda-developers and follow steps 1 and 5 to do exactly what you're after WITHOUT ROOTING.

    Thanks! I did not know that you could boot into CWM without root. I now have acorntv working in dolphin and am exceedingly happy.
