Cannot install APK of the theme

Hi everyone, yesterday I decided to try to make theme for my Z5, since I this is my first time creating theme, I tried to create firstly one basic theme, today I had more time to work with Theme Creator and made it more advanced theme. But I have one problem, i export APK file (unsigned) and I cannot install thath APK on my Xperia Z5. It says ´the package appears to be corrupt´.

Where am I doing it wrong? I have adb drivers installed, java 64bit, could the Nougat be the problem? current build number on my XPeria Z5 is 32.3.A.2.33

I would be thankful if you could help me out with this, and I am new to this, so I really don´t know what the problem is.

Re: Cannot install APK of the theme

Hi,

 

What you actually want to do is go to Build>Export APK>Test APK or Release APK, for now, pick the Test APK, since, chances are you didn't make a keystore and a key for your Themes. So my advice to you is just to select Test APK.

Re: Cannot install APK of the theme

maybe that will work, but at the moment i don´t have .jks file, so i cannot import or generate key.

could this be because i am not registered at the moment as android developer?

 

all I want is to export apk file, and install it on my z5, so i could better what have i done.

sorry, first time doing this, so this is all new for me.

Anyway,  I have found solution, I reinstalled ADB drivers, and I am able to install directly theme via Build and install option.
