So apparently it is no longer compatible with my device(Even though it still works just fine) so if my phone completely crashes I am without CrunchyRoll on mobile. Anyway at all to install back versions.

One way would be to find an archive of an APK of the older version and sideload it.


I take it from the title of this topic that you have Android 2.1, while the current app requires at least 2.3 or later.

You have to admit 2.1 is rather old, and its marketshare is tiny. Versions prior to 2.2 total only about 1% of all android devices (as of a year ago):

However, in August, 2013, versions older than Android 2.2 accounted for about 1% of devices that checked in to Google servers (not those that actually visited Google Play Store).

Normally I agree with 99% of the posts you make but this part totally defeats the purpose of a support forum and is kind of an *bleep*hole comment.

Back to the op, see if this link works for you.

I did give practical advice as to how to resolve the issue first.

At some point CR will change something that breaks the older versions of the app. At that point even sideloading an older version will not work. Anyone running a version of Android that old is on borrowed time not only for the CR app, but many others also.
