TC fails to install apk files

Post by *enryfox » 2019-03-27, 21:23 UTC

TC 3.0.3b running on LineageOS 15.1.
I have downloaded a couple of applications as apk files; trying to install the apk through TC results in a "failed verification" error. Using another file browser works with no issue.

thanks
Enrico

On newer Android versions, each app which wants to install apk files needs to be confirmed. If you denied this, then TC will not be able to install apk files.

Hi, i had already granted permissione to TC to install apps but it kept failing ... I have cycled the permission a couple of time and now it works. Weird, but problem solved.

Nothing weird. Depending on apk settings there may be more permissions needed: separately for Internet access, access to file system etc.
