Hi, I'm trying to install the latest beta on my Amazon Fire 7 tablet. When I try -- with third party apk side loading enabled -- I get the screen telling me the security permissions the app is going to receive, but the install button doesn't seem to be enabled, only the cancel button.

 

Can you offer any suggestions on how to correct this?

 

Thanks,

Tim

I encountered the same issue, I think it finally resolved when the download actually completed.

I've been having the same problem with my Kindle (not with my Samsung phone). I've downloaded it several times from the forum and once from my Google drive. I'm never able to click the install button (only cancel).

Here's what works for me: when you see the greyed out Install option, tap the square at the bottom of the screen. Then, select the app you're using to do the install. That should highlight the Install button.

 

EDIT: fixed a typo that confused the instructions. Thanks to david.everson for catching it.

Did you mean "push the square" or "tap"? After I did that and went back into the install screen, I could install it. Thanks!

Thanks for the catch, David. Based on my googling, it looks like this is a known issue with side loading apps on the Fire, so it's not an Accordance issue.
