Recently I have been getting the error “application not installed” when trying to install apps to my sd card. This is just a quick post to share my solution to the problem.

The Solution

Plug your phone into your pc via usb cable or mount the sd card and delete the file smdl2tmp1.asec from the folder .android_secure then mount the sd card back on the phone and all will be good
