Found 25th Nov 2014
I have downloaded the showbox pack, but when I tap the downloaded file, it tells me "Can't open file" every time.

Can someone help?

I have kept doing this over and over. I keep soft resetting my device too. But still getting the same thing.

Have you allowed unknown sources in settings?

I have changed the settings to allow 3rd part downloads. It's for android.

I have got round the download/install problem by downloading app to my PC, then emailing it to my email address. Then open using my device.

BUT new problem I have having is when I view the movie I want to download, all I am getting is "Waiting for downloading" on every download I want. Is there a problem with showbox service?

No. Like I said though, I have got round the installing part. Now I am having download issues with movies. I can't download Star Trek Into Darkness... All I'm getting is the "waiting for downloading".
I've just tried lucy off the front page and that's working fine.
May have to wait for it to buffer depending on which version eg (low, med, high)

Have you got play with internal player clicked? Should have the swirling arrow rather than text when waiting.

It won't even let me watch Star Trek Into Darkness. I always use MX Player too. But I have had the same issues with loads of movies. Same for Expendables 3. It won't download and just says "waiting for download". I was waiting all day for something to happen but nothing ever did.

Could someone try downloading ST Into Darkness and see if it works on your device? Thanks.

When I try and watch now for ST I get a media error can not play file.
have u thought about downloading it from another source . showbox is good but sometimes it easier to download films in other ways and stream them from PC to android or put the films on a SD card.
Or you could do the correct and legal thing and buy the film? You clearly don't seem bright enough to get it any other way so maybe legally obtaining it might be easier?

Fair point. It's in our nature to want things for free. Especially in these hard times when we work all hours for peanuts to support families, keep roofs over our heads and constantly being screwed over by the men in power...

So personally, I don't care if I am downloading a movie to entertain myself for a few hours over a lifetime of constant ****.

Happy?
