    Worked like a charm, thanks. Amazon app store app installed, Angry Birds Rio installed in my Inspire 4G. Just one question now- is there a way to install from the .apk file on the phone or must I copy it to the PC and let SWM resend it over? It seems that while the store app .apk was downloadable to the PC, anything purchased (or free) from the app store must be downloaded using the phone, whether purchased using Amazon on the PC or phone.

    Worked wonderfully with an AT&T HTC Aria / Android 2.2 Froyo.

    However, speaking about the the Amazon App Store, purchased/free app install is still blocked by AT&T.... SIGH. I just tried Angry Birds Rio... Oh, well!

    Edit:
    But... connect your phone as a drive and look in \Android\data\com.amazon.venezia\cache - you will see the APK you just downloaded but failed to install.... copy it to the PC, and sideload it!

    SideLoad is a great tool.

    I was easily able to install Amazon Appstore and the free Angry Bird Rio game on my HTC Inspire 4G.

    The free game didn't get installed from Amazon Appstore app directly. I had to:
    1. Find the game's .apk in "cache" subdirectory of my sdcard.
    2. Copy this .apk to SWM folder on my PC.
    2. Install this copied .apk using SWM.

    Serial number not showing up on Att Atrix using Side Loader Wonder Machine. Would be nice if they included the device drivers so their software would actually work without spending 4 hours pulling and matching drivers from the SDK. The 'wonder machine' is glorified vaporware.

    This definitely works to download the Amazon Appstore on my Atrix 46 with AT&T, however, I am unable to install the apps I download from the Appstore. I still get the error message saying that due to security..... I have been searching for a way to install the app directly to my computer so that I can use this program to get it on my phone, but I have been unsuccessful. Any help would be awesome!!

    Just plug the phone into the computer and use as a disk drive. From the computer search the phone for ".apk" that should list all the apk files on the phone. Move those to the computer.
    Amazon market apps have funny names that you can't determine what it is. I am going to try to rename an apk file and try to sideload it. Might work or might not.

    Then unplug phone from computer, then plug phone into computer and use "charge only" setting. Then use the sideloading wonder machine to install the app.

    You are
    welcome.
    I did rename todays free poker app and it did load the program. However be aware that the app will need to download a huge file in order to work and that file is around 250megs.

    Worked for me on an AT&T HTC inspire.

    I did have to install the HTC Inspire Sync crap to make it work due to their USB drivers being proprietary. Just make Sure you close the app and kill it from the system tray before you run this or it fails.

    It worked for me when the HTC sync app was up, there was a "failure" message, but it still worked. Something about the adb server was out of date.

    So I closed out the HTC sync on the puter and the failure message is gone so thanks for the tip!

    That free app from amazon market today sucks, don't waste your time dl a 250meg file!

    Just google "htc sync" and it will give a link to the file at htc.com
    It should have installed the usb drivers when you plugged in the phone for the first time however.

    Well I used the large 250meg "world series of poker" files I downloaded into my phone and used those same files on another phone and it worked so I didn't have to dl it again. Still don't like the app but now I know I don't have to dl large files to each phone separately.

    Once you install the .APK file through Sideload Wonder Machine I assume you can then delete the .APK from your phones cache, right? What about the directory?

    i.e.

    Directory of E:\Android\data\com.amazon.venezia\cache

    03/22/2011 07:18 PM <DIR> .
    03/22/2011 07:18 PM <DIR> ..

    other than it taking forever and a day to download the HTC Sync package from HTC's website, this worked flawlessly.
