Question [Android] CC Manual Update Error

To chaley or whom it may concern:

As per this post, I used this link to the files on chaley personal server to download V5.4.4.1-full.apk and so update my Google Play full version of CC installed on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (SM-P350) running Android 6.01.

However, with the V5.4.4.1-full.apk already installed (and working fine to browse my on-device library) when I tried to connect to the content server of my Calibre Library on my PC, the app said the license was invalid and that the app was going to close (and so it did).

I re openeded the app, backed up the app data (through the app options) uninstalled the app, re installed the Google Play full version and restored the app data: nothing lost, mind you, it's working again with no problems neither with the content server conection nor local library browsing.

However, my question is: how am I supposed to update the app now?

Awaiting your kind reply,

[INCANUS]

FWIW , I used that same version and have used my content server OK, several times
I think I just installed the linked one as an update: I did not remove the google store version beforehand. maybe you did that and it removed the license ?

I don't know what is happening. The content server connection does not check the license so you should never get that error. The fact that you are getting it implies that you are using the wireless device connection, not the content server. It is also worth noting that many others have upgraded and no one else has had this problem.

The only thing I can suggest is to upgrade again, run CC and get the error, then send me a CC debug log as described in this FAQ.

One thought: be sure that CC has access to the internet when you do your first wireless device connection.
