My phone installs modules to 
/sdcard/Android/data/net.bible.android.activity/files/, but you tried 
that already. For what it's worth, I can manually install to that 
directory without a problem. I can even restore my backup of those files 
after reinstalling AndBible (long story), and it detects all of them.
