    Default Can't install apk on my N7

    So, I have a 4.2.2-32gb N7 WiFi only, running Paranoid Android 3.56, with a 3.1.10 franco-kernel. I downloaded an apk, f-droid to be exact onto my N7. I open it and try to install and the install button won't let me push it. The cancel button will let me push it,but no joy on the install button. I rebooted, wiped my cache, I have 3rd party apps allowed. I have tried installing by directly opening the apk and also by using some install apps from the play store. Any ideas?

    Since you have a custom ROM installed, I'd suggest posting in the Rooting, ROM and Hacking subforum.

    The issue you're experiencing is due to apps that have permission to draw over other apps. Specifically for PA ROMs, it's because of the HALO feature. Disable it, and you'll be able to press the "Install" button when sideloading.

    Sounds like an easy fix. Looked through the settings and I can't find a way to disable Halo. Any ideas?
