Two Ways to Fix Application Not Installed on Android Phone?

I’ll show you two simple ways to fix this.
=>  Get your phone
rooted (comment below for aid)
=> Download any file explorer app with root access from
playstore or download solid explorer and unlocker  now.
=> Install the app(s) to your phone and launch.
=>For solid explorer, go to settings, click on
files, scroll down and check “Back goes to root” .
=>Click back untill you reach system root and click on
the folder, “data”.
=> Solid explorer will ask for root
permission, please grant it.
=> When the next window opens, look for the folder, data
and open it.
=> Now, you will see a list of folders (system folders of
all the installed apps in your phone).
=> Look for the one that has the name or company name of
your missing app and delete it. For eg. zarchiver is ru.zdevs.zarchiver.
=>You can now re-install the app with no hassle.
NOTE: Please, be careful of how you
access your system folders. You might mistakenly tamper with important folders
which leads to phone malfunction.  It’s advisable not to access it all,
unless you are aware of your intention and actions.
If the first method didn’t work out for you, then factory
reset your phone and everything will be back to normal. Before you factory reset, back up all your files to SD card and remove the SD card from your phone.
If you encounter any problem, don’t hesitate to drop comments below.
