There is.. but we're not allowed to say it's name. All I can say is think of the "smiley face" app. I've been able to disable signature verification on Pie & 10; so it is possible.. I'm just not entirely sure how he managed to do that. I'll try to get in contact with that mysterious fella & see what he can tell me.

I don't know, I guess it's my tablets fault then

edit: anyway, I've done it with lucky patcher

This thread is not about bypassing Google Play signature verification for in-app purchases, bypassing APK signature verification for app upgrades (among other features).

I realize that, but that notorious app isn't only for bypassing license verification. It's also for installing downgraded versions over installed ones & installing different signatures (useful when translating apps, as it becomes signed with a new test certificate).


Another option comes to mind, an LSposed module; although this is limited in functionality & only does downgrading.


Lastly, a third option is Core Patch. Alot of anti-piracy nuts will have a cow, but it does have legal & appropriate purposes, listed above.

By the way, any news on finding maintained alternatives to InstallerOpt and XInstaller ?

I'll take a look at those two projects (hopefully they still have active accessible GitHub repositories. If it's just a matter of updating the template from old Xposed to LSPosed & zygist; I could do it myself. I remember InstallerOpt being released for a very old framework (like 6 or 7), and that would put a fork in the process by having to change all the hooking process & basically the entire way the module works. If anyone knows the GitHub source to either or both of those modules, that'd help me greatly

L.P.'s Rebuild & Install feature fails on my device with the following error :

Where's the setting to bypass it ?
I just re-read the error & a second process to do is Settings->Toolbox->Patch to Android. the alternative route is using the xposed module, but that has been highly regarded against, as it only works on very specific devices & bootloops the rest.

    XInstaller seems to be having issues with MM but it had two features that I really missed:
    • Show version information when installing an application, current and new version numbers
    • Automatically closing the installer when installation was successful so you don't have to click "Done" or "Open"
    So I took the relevant methods from XInstaller and removed everything else. Other features from XInstaller are being added upon request with the following features currently implemented:
    • Auto hide install and uninstall
    • Auto install and uninstall
    • Backup any currently installed application
    • Backup APK files during install
    • Manage all backups including restore from backups
    • Delete APK files after install
    • Disable application Force Close dialog
    • Disable application verification and signature checking
    • Disable system apps
    • Disable user applications
    • Display package name in app info
    • Downgrade apps
    • Enable clear data and cache buttons
    • Launch app from icon in app info
    • Open playstore link from icon in app info
    • Show version info on installation window and/or as toast
    Original code credit:
    Pyler for XInstaller github
    hamzahrmalik for initial preference code and layout
    hamsterksu over on github for an awesome content provider that wraps sharedpreferences
    Matsca09 over on github for unknown source prompt in DirectApkInstall

    Grab it from Xposed Installer or from http://fypm.net/xposed/net.fypm.InstallerOpt1.0.10 (53)-release.apk
