Cannot download .apk from G1 Browser

Postby andreleitao » Thu Jun 25, 2009 10:14 pm

Hi, folks.

I've tried to download an .apk file via OTA, and all the device does is to show the binary characters instead to download file.
But I tried to download apk files from this forum, for example, and it worked perfectly. E.g. links present on this post: are downloaded perfectly and runs normally. But if I take one of these apk files and put it in a personal server G1 device does not open the file, it shows binary characters. Why that? :cry:

If you want I can give you a link to test it.

Thanks :)

The reason is probably that your server doesn't send out the appropriate Content-Type.
