Play Store apk - Where can I find it?

xxxHolic 31,558 5,566 March 7, 2014 at 04:12 PM
I somehow managed to break my Market App. Whenever I try to click on the Play Store. It just closed.
I used titanium backup pro to freeze:
Play Music
Play Books
Play Newsstand
Play Movies & TV
Where can I find the apk for it?
4.0.4
Thank you.

this [androidfilehost.com] should work for it, although it may be an older version, so you should uninstall what you currently have first, install this, and then let it update

I used my phone browser to download the apk. When I clicked on the apk, it did not do anything. I already enable the "Unknown sources".
Do you think I broke the Installer? How do I fix it?

When you say that you clicked on the APK, were you doing it from your browser or a file program, like File Manager, etc.

Try downloading and installing this one (air hockey) [box.com] to find out if your phone installs APK's properly, or maybe the downloaded Play Store APK is damaged/corrupt.

I just downloaded the Air Hockey Speed.apk.
I can't open or install it.

From where are you trying to launch it.
From your internet browser, or a file program?

I can see why it won't work.
What your viewing is the notification that the file has been downloaded.
All Android machines come with a file browser.
I don't know what it's called on yours, but when you find it, you have to go look for the download folder, and that's where you're going to find that APK to install.
Do you know what I mean?
If not, say so and I'll try to say it another way.

I don't have the File Manager (Explorer) on my phone because I just did factory reset. So I cannot go search for the apk.

It IS included in Android, GUARANTEED!
Check your app collection in the area where they are stored (not on the "desktop" pages.
I don't know what it will be called, but its icon will look like a regular file folder, kinda creamybrown.

When I try to install something. It just says Downloading... like forever. It won't install.

That I don't know about.
I'm certainly not an Android expert.
I happen to have a lot of files for Android, from owning an HP Touchpad, so I learned a bit, but we need a true Android expert to help you with your present problem.
