Question Looking for Dolphine Browser 10.3.1 apk

Do you know of a URL for downloading a valid apk for Dolphin Browser version 10.3.1? Or any release of version 10? Every apk I have found so far is bogus. The developers of Dolphin Browser decided to "improve" the browser and released version 11.0.0. Their improvements have ruined what was an excellent browser. <sigh>

What do you mean by 'bogus'? I found 10.3.0 and it seems to work, but I have no way of knowing how legitimate it is!

I've uploaded it here if it helps:

By "bogus" I mean the apk will not install and the tablet's OS reports it is an invalid file. Thank you for the URL. I will check it out.

Edit: The apk is valid and installed without problem. Again, thank you.

No problem . I installed it for the same reason as you!

Restoring my bookmarks was a bit of a task. Luckily, I had saved a copy of the browser.db file from version 10.3.1. It was not directly useable with 10.3.0; the file caused 10.3.0 to crash. I copied the 10.3.0 and 10.3.1 browser.db files to my PC and then used a SQLite database editor to import bookmarks from the 10.3.1 file into the 10.3.0 file. Then I copied the edited 10.3.0 browser.db file back to my XTZ and voilą, all my bookmarks were in 10.3.0. I would still like to find a 10.3.1 apk, but the 10.3.0 will do for now or at least until the Dolphin developers fix their version 11.

Sounds like a lot of trouble! Luckily I'm trying to keep Dolphin sync-ed to my PC bookmarks so I just imported Chrome bookmarks again. Do you remember what was fixed in 10.3.1?

Not really. The process cost me less than half an hour.

I guess I should begin doing something similar, but I try not to save anything on the grid and syncing sometimes requires interim storage on Google's or whoever's servers. My failure was losing my backup copy of Dolphin 10.3.1 by running Titanium Backup Pro shortly after receiving the version 11 update.

No, however, one of the changes must have been to the browser.db file because the files for 10.3.0 and 10.3.1 are structured slightly different, but different enough to cause 10.3.0 to crash.

I just found that Dolphin V11.1.3 restored to swipe to side bars.That's the feature i use most.
Maybe you can have a try.

Thanks, but I have. I have also signed up as a Dolphin beta tester. Yes, the developers have restored the left and right swipe features, which is a good thing; however, V11.1.3 is still problematic, so the developers have more work to do before Dolphin is once again as stable as v10.3.1 was.
