Re: Unable to install the Theme

Hi,

 

can you inform which test option you have used to get to this problem? Link: https://developer.sony.com/develop/smartphones-and-tablets/theme-creator/test-and-verify/

 

Did you have your Xperia device connected to your computer and use the "Build > Build and Install" option?

 

Or did you use the "Export test APK" option, store the APK locally on your file system and transfer it to your Xperia device in the file explorer?

Can you provide step-by-step instructions on what you did, and what you saw at each step?

Re: Unable to install the Theme

It was quite complicated to find the APK files on my Mac, but this is what I did, followed the step to create the APK as on the above link 

 

Transferred the APK to my phone > change the security settings to allow me to "Side load" apps > use the file commander to find the APK > clicked on install > I got an error that it couldn't be installed. 

 

I also tried to send it through my email and still the same error.

Hmm, this is news to me. Can you find a way to provide me with this APK file?

Re: Unable to install the Theme

The current version of Theme Creator only supports Android 4.4 (KitKat) devices.  If you don't have a compatible Xperia device to test with, please try using the Remote Device Lab.

Re: Unable to install the Theme

Can you please provide your device model and the SW build number?

 

Just to rule out that this issue has something to do with the device configurations, have you tried uploading the APK to the device lab?  Suggest to try it on the Z1 device if it's available.
