“Parse Error” on Android/CyanogenMod – just enable Package Installer “Storage” permission

November 28, 2016

You’ve probably Googled this to death, as I also have, and got mostly dumb answers like to reboot your phone, enable unknown sources, or even as far as to reflash/factory-reset your phone.

Nope. Just go to Settings -> Apps, tap the Menu button, then tap “Show System”. Scroll down to “Package Installer”, tap it. Check the “Permissions” line – “No permissions granted”? Right. Tap that.

In that menu, you’ll find the golden setting. Storage permission denied? Right, that’s a problem. Slide that beautiful little switch “on”. Then, back out, go back to your APK, and try again.

Thank me in the comments. 🙂
