F-droid release thread?

Looking for version info for older f-droid releases.

Long story short, I’m trying to get some older devices working. The CAcert store in older android devices doesn’t update. So, The Guardian Project points here. …but F-droid.org doesn’t open on older devices. The current version of F-droid either won’t download or downloads corrupt… possibly due to CAcert issues??

I dunno, I’m about to try to figure out how to sideload, but I don’t really want to jump down that rabbit hole on various devices which don’t generally have a file manager installed anyway. :stuck_out_tongue:

The specific devices I’m working with right now are Android 2.3.4 and 2.3.6, but I have a bag full of my old Android phones, basically at least one of every version that ever existed… except the dev droid. That one walked away. :’(

Ok, so I found this on the wayback machine:


Shows that the last version compatible with Android 2.3.3 was F-droid 1.2.2. I THINK I got a successful download off of my laptop, but the Android browser fails to grab the download from the https://web.archive.org/web/20180807001948/https://f-droid.org/repo/org.fdroid.fdroid_1002051.apk link or the https://f-droid.org/repo/org.fdroid.fdroid_1002051.apk link.


I wish I was knowledgeable enough to help but rest assured the responses will come. Cheers.

Old F-Droid versions are in the archive repo. Its base URL is https://f-droid.org/archive/ instead of https://f-droid.org/repo/.

You can install an APK without a file manager by enabling USB debugging on the device and then running adb install foo.apk on your PC.
