Forum Thread: How to Enable "Unknown Sources" in Android to Install Apps Outside the Play Store

A critical aspect of being a softModder is the ability to install apps from outside the Play Store. Whether you want to install something that Google doesn't allow, like the CyanogenMod installer, or something that requires root privileges, like Xposed, you'll want to remember this handy little trick.
