Paid apps

  • Paid app paid outside Play Store: Several users successfully installed Sygic Navigation.
  • Paid app paid inside Play Store: According to @Ozymandias they will download and before installing them, Play Store will crash. Then you can find the temp file in directory /data/app-private. If you rename that temp file to .apk you can install it manually and it will work.

Renaming a file, e.g.:

  • Use Android OI File Manager (from Yandex Store), mark the file and select "Rename" from the menu.
  • Use Terminal (see question above):
    • devel-su
    • cd /data/app-private
    • dir to list the current content of the directory. (Alternatively you may use ls.)
    • mv xxx.tmp xxx.apk (replace "xxx.tmp" by the current name of the file.
    • exit to end root access.

After renaming, use File Browser to install the app as shown with Phonesky.apk in the question above.
