I have a problem, I have copied an apk from my Star B943 (rooted) android phone and when I try to install it on my Nexus 7 2013 (rooted) it says apk not installed!! I am a noob and this is my first thread but I really like the holo design of this apk but I think it won't install because my tablet is not a mediatek device or because it was a system app? Could I possibly change my build.prop or does it read something else?? I honestly have no idea but any help would be appreciated, thanks.
If it's having problems installing the APK due to a parsing issue it's likely either corrupt, built from an incompatible version of Android, or is otherwise incompatible with the hardware provided. It could also not be properly crypto signed, I reckon.
I think it might be not compatible with the hardware as is doesn't work on my brothers S3 running 4.2.2, and what is crypto-signing? I am quite new!
Could this apk be recompliled (Changing target sdk in manifest and then recompiling?) to be compatible or is it not possible without completely rewriting the app? Thanks
