I'm trying to install an apk. It has worked before but now not at all. Trying to open it with different other apps. In "Files" selecting "Open With" gives me the error None of your apps can open this file.

How do I fix this?

Previously I could use Total Commander, but that gives an error about "Can't find /folder".

I had an app installed called Cozmo, which is for a little robot toy, and that somehow hijacked the "open apk" default, even though it did not have any defaults according to app info.

Uninstalling that app brought me to where I am now. It's pretty frustrating.

I would prefer not to do factory reset. It takes forever setting up 2fa apps and such.

I can install via adb, but it's just annoying.

Hope someone can help.

Cheers /Jonas

  • 3rd party app installations are handled by Package Installer system app, maybe the app you install messed with it or something. Could you try installing the app from Play Store and see if it works. – Beveloper Nov 15 '19 at 17:13
