    Do you need to download any app from to your phone or to your computer in order to install it? I am unable to locate the any .apk file from the AC-SWM folder.

    Help!
    This program installs .apk files you have downloaded elsewhere, like SlideME or MiKandi (other app markets).

    It says my phones not connected, or there is no device. My Sony Ericsson Xperia x10 is connected, with windows debugging on, what do i do?
    You need to set up the Windows driver from Sony. I'm not much help here, because they have changed the installation method since I had an X10. Ask for help in the X10 forums with the driver, and they will get you sorted.

    OK. I've done everything. Everything is fine, I'd be able to install the app that I like from a third party following this method. However

    I'am still unable to install from a third party. It said "Security purpose phone is locked from third party"

    Do I have to do this everything I want to install third party apps?

    Thank you!
    Yep. Everytime you want to install a third party app you'll have to use the Sideloader. Here's hoping AT&T changes that in the future!

    I have been trying to figure this out so any help would be welcome. I am a newbe and this is my first droid a captivate. I downloaded and installed swm and received no error messages when I hit the dianostics buttons and my device shows up. ap I am trying to install is flash_for_21.apk. when I select this it runs for a while and then returns with install_failed_insufficent_storage. I dont know if ATT has done something to prevent this software or if I am still missing something... Help Please..
    I had the Install_Failed_Insufficient_Storage problem forever. Then I realized I was putting my Apps in the wrong folder. Dont put them in the payload. just put them in the AC_SWM folder
    THIS ERROR IS DRIVING ME MAD. I know what jelowrie says works, because it works for everyone. But it's impossible. The program can only look where it's told for the apk file, and that's the payload folder. No matter how hard I try, I can't reproduce it.

    So I'm asking for help from you two. Can you zip up the entire AC_SWM folder you have on your computer and mail it to me please?

    jelowrie,Thanks, Your The Man! I thought I had placed the app in the correct folder.. When I did as you instructed ... it worked.. Screen shows app loaded ok. App still did not correct my no adobe flash problem.. guess I have some more research to do for a updated app...

    OK this is what I did to correct the loading problems. I created a file on the root of C: drive, AC_SWM, I moved all of my files there. I removed the app from the loader file and placed it with the ac_swm folder with the program files. I deleted all shortcuts and related files from my desktop. When I opend the program I used the find button to go to my AC_SWM folder and found my app. I clicked on the app and hit open. install button became activated and I installed the app. I found if there were any other copies of the software or an icon for the software on the desktop it would not work. It all has to be done from the file folder on C: drive.

    hope this helps, good luck...

    I tried to read all 21 pages, but can't seem to get through them all. So, I will just ask my question. As this is supposed to work on any android device, will it also work to sideload apps on a non-rooted Nook Color?

    yo, ATT captivate users, i kept getting the same error about 'cannot find payload...'
    (I have stock ATT ROM, rooted)

    i took a hint from one of the first posts. I created a folder inside c:\AC_SWM and called it payload. I put an .apk file in the payload folder.

    from the command prompt browse to c:\AC_SWM
    then type: loader.bat

    bam, now it installs my apps for me.

    thanks to everyone

    I have searched the forum for someone with the same problem but I seem to be the only one.

    I downloaded both versions of the program, the original version twice and the beta version 4 times. Every time I try to unzip the file, I get the error message, "unkown format or damaged".

    I tried to unzip with Winrar and Winzip but neither of them can open the file. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

    Thanks.

    I have a SE Xperia X10. I had previously downloaded and installed the Sony PC Companion program so I could update my OS from 1.6 to 2.2. AT&T BLOCKS this, but it does install the USB Drivers onto your computer.

    I installed the latest SWM per the directions (unzip/extract folder to C Drive) and it works GREAT!!!!

    Thanks Guys.

    Little help please. I've been through the troubleshooting, have the latest version that is supposed to fix the file path issues with xp have but still get the error can't find path to "to_install.apk". When I run the diagnostics it says "payload folder not found".

    Can anyone help with this please? Sorry if I missed it in this thread already. I searched, really I did.

    I do have SWM loaded on another pc running vista and it works fine but I'd really like it to work on my xp machine.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Ok, solved. All I had to do was create the folder "payload" in the AC_SWM foler in the root of C. That was it. Maybe leaving my dumb post here will help someone else. :P

    I've searched most of this Thread, and I think I'm the only one with this problem.
    Once I have my HTC Aria connected in Charge Mode, and USB Debugging on, I click the .apk I would like, and then click install. The following message appears.

    "ECOD Found, not zip
    File C:\AC_SWM\payload\to_install.apk is not a valid zip file"

    I really don't know what happened, it was working one morning, but in the afternoon it wasn't.

    Thanks in advance, Matt

    Thanks. I'm not sure why the payload folder doesn't get unzipped for some folks, yet does for others. Next revamp of the app creates the folder when first run.

    Sounds like the .apk you're trying to install is corrupt, or needs signed correctly. Try a different file and see if that helps

    Noob here, just wanted to say thank you! This worked perfect for my htc Aria. Im not too computer savvy and this was actually a lot easier than it looks.

    --p.s. I can not believe ATT would blatantly disable their phones from being able to install non-market apps. I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM ATT AGAIN. Once my bull**** contract is up, Im definitely moving on.

    Thanx Again!!

    Hi:
    I got the app for Windows and it installs fine under Windows 7 64 bit, the only problem is that I still get the message that says Apps not sourced in the Android Market are blocked. My phone carrier is AT&T. How can I get around this ?

    I got the correct driver but I cannot get around this restriction.
    Thanks,

    Does the sideload wonder work on Sony Ericsson Xperia (X10). I've tried everything, but the loader.bat can't see my device. My driver said "Sony Ericsson sa0101 ADB Interface Driver". Is this the correct type of driver to use. I've look on the Sony Website to find another driver but i haven't seen one. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    USB cable plugged in. Debugger turned on. Not mounted.

    Used the Sideload Wonder to install Tether on my HTC Aria. Have a Windows 7 Pro laptop, so .NET was already there. Just followed the simple instructions, installed that .APK file, and BAM! works like a charm. Will be cancelling my USB Wireless Broadband plan from AT&T costing $60/month. THANK YOU!!!

    Hello,

    I have Windows Vista and my phone is a Motorola Backflip MB300.
    I have unzipped the files (AC-SWM) on the Local Drive C:/
    I have installed both Microsoft.NET 4 and my respective USB Driver.

    But once I try to open the program it says I'm missing the .NET program, does anyone know what the problem is, I confirmed that I installed the program.
