I have a samsung galaxy tab 4. A few days ago wickr me brought out an update which only works on android 5 and above. So I'm locked out. I' ve tried downloading with aptoide but it's not worked. Anybody any advice/solution?

Can you uninstall the update and reinstall the previous version?

Thank you for your help.Unfortunately the download didn't work. I should have made clear that the os on my samsung galaxy tablet is 4.4.4

So, you need to get Lollipop or higher on your Tablet for it to work.

I wouldn't rate your chances to highly and if you succeeded it would probably be so slow as to be unplayable

Thank you for your help anyway. It was kind of you to take the time

Have I misunderstood? Did you try using an earlier version as, according to wickr me, the old version should still work on your tablet.

This is a diabolical capitalist trick to get you to buy a new Tablet.

They do it roughly every 3 (to 4) years

Did you follow these instructions when you downloaded and installed the earlier version?
