To sideload the Android Market app, download the Android Market APK file from a website such as Android.sc, and transfer it to the Android device after connecting it to your computer. Locate the file, tap it, and tap Yes to confirm the installation. To ensure that the installation works, check the box next to the Unknown Sources option in the Security settings on the Android device.
