Some Failed Methods

This section lists some methods that were tried during development but cannot be used to install ghost to Nanidroid.

  • Attaching .nar file in e-mail does not work because most e-mail client does not understand how to deal with .nar file as attachment.
  • E-mail URL of nar to your account and open link on the phone.  This will fail because Android default browser does not download .nar files correctly
