HOW TO SIDE-LOAD APPS ONTO THE
NEPTUNE PINE
Side-Loading apps is a term that you will hear quite often, in Android circles.
Side-loading is a method for adding applications to your device, without going
through a store, like Google Play or the Amazon app store. Side-loading is
simple and can be accomplished in one of two ways, downloading an APK
directly to your Pine or downloading the APK to you PC and then moving it to
the Pine via copy/paste or drag-and-drop.
Make sure to only download APK files from sources you trusts as the files may not be scanned, and
guaranteed to be free from malware.
There are two ways to obtain APK files.
1
Search the web using the application name (+ “APK”). You should find a
link to download the app’s APK file.
2
If you are a seasoned veteran with your cell phone and have the app on
there already, you can find the APK in your system files and send it to your
Pine via Bluetooth. However, we only recommend this for those who are
familiar with rooting and working with something like Root Explorer or ES
File Explorer. Before you can side-load APK’s, you will need to make sure
that your device is set to allow you to install apps from unknown sources.
To turn this on, you will need to go into SETTINGS and then scroll down
until you see SECURITY and tap on it.
Preparing the Pine for side-loading
1
Before you can side-load an APK file, you will need to
make sure that your Pine is set to allow you to install
apps from unknown sources. To turn this on, you will
need to go into SETTINGS and then scroll down until
you see SECURITY and tap on it.
2
Once you are in the next screen, scroll down and
check the box for UNKNOWN SOURCES.
3
Once that is checked, escape out, until you are back
at the main screen.
Downloading the APK directly to the Pine
1
If you downloaded the file directly to your Pine,
you need to go to the �downloads’ app in your app
drawer.
2
Tap on the file.
3
Choose install.
Downloading the APK to your PC
1
If you downloaded the file to your PC, you will have to
connect your Pine to your PC and transfer the file into
the download folder, before following the installation
steps above.
Before connecting your Pine, you need to make sure
that it is set correctly. In order to do this, you will
need to go into SETTINGS and tap on USB Connect.
2
On the next screen, click on USB MASS STORAGE
3
Once you do that, you can escape out to the main screen. This setting allows your Pine to
appear like an external hard drive and enables you to move files back and forth between a PC
and your Pine.
You can now connect your Pine to the PC via USB cable. Once it shows in your list of drives (in
Windows Explorer) you can navigate to the APK files on your PC and copy/paste them into the
DOWNLOAD folder of your Pine. Once complete, properly eject the Pine from your PC, then
follow the above steps to install each APK.
