How can I install a file manager without the Android market?

Bernard October 21, 2011

My Android market is bugged and all proposed “solutions” start by downloading a file manager. How can I do that when the Market does not work? Is there another way to intall a file manager?

    you can download astro file manager apk file form here :
     how to install apk from pc.

    Settings>> Application Settings>> uncheck Unknown Sources .

    Settings > SD Card and Phone Storage > Enable Disable Use for USB Storage.

    install follwing :
    Google Android SDK program:
    and the Android USB drivers.

    Open Command Prompt and type:
    adb install >path of apk<

    (path : if abc.apk file is on e drive you will have to type "abd install E:/abc.apk")
    so it will be location+filename+extension.

    Done !

    This is how to install astro file manger without market.

    Either install using astro file maneger or app installer,
    or install from pc using sdk.

        If it's difficult for you to follow the instructions to download apps using SDK,then you can download apps from most popular third party sites like only thing is that you have to allow installation of third party apps into your phone.
