Default Installing Android on Duo - 07-02-2011, 09:21 PM

I have successfully installed Android on my Duo as a dual boot option. While installing android the set-up had me create a fake SD card so I can install applications. However, when I attempt to download and install new apps, the system says I have no SD card. I see an SD card in the file manager program and android says I have 2gb available for internal storage. Do I need to do something else to ensure the sd card is mounted?

I don't remember I had to do anything. I think the easiest way to fix it is to reinstalll it. It only takes u 15 mins.

did you create the sd on the flash drive or harddrive? if you did it on the flash drive, pull the drive out and reinsert it. i had to do it every time i booted into android. anything new on the release? i havent done anything with it since around feb, and it barely worked

I created the sd card on the computer. I was hoping not to have to insert an actual sc card. Everything else works great, but I can't install apps without android thinking there's an sd card for storage.

Install a app called "button savior" it creates virtual keys on your screen.
