Getting installation error

Looking to build a team or have a job to offer?

I compiled my game for Android using cocoonjs, and then I signed the release package with a key created, according to the instructions on

Now I don't have an Android phone, and so I don't know if this problem persists on devices. I have given the APK file to my friends who own Android devices, they haven't responded yet. So instead of bugging them, I went on to install the game on the emulator. I do have an Android development environment setup.

I put the game in the same directory as adb.exe, then I ran the adb install command, in 2 ways:

1)adb install <mygame>.apk
2)adb install -s <mygame>.apk

The 2nd one forcible tries to install the app onto the sdcard.

Problem is, I'm getting this error after I execute the command:

pkg: /data/local/tmp/<mygame>.apk

For the 2nd command, the first line of the error is

pkg: /sdcard/tmp/<mygame>.apk

if that's any help.

What can I do? I searched on StackOverflow, seems like doing this will solve it:

Change the install location from




in you AndroidManifest.xml.

But I don't have access to the xml file! Atleast in readable form! When I extract the AndroidManifest.xml file from the signed release version of my app, and open it, I get to see mostly garbage I can't edit.

Now cocoonjs directly compiles into APK. What can I do?
