Good day,

I'm trying to upload new version of applications Locus Free/Locus Pro.

Both APK files are correctly uploaded and published over Google Play. But every attempt with upload on your server, ends with message in title - APK files is invalid: 5

May you please explain to me, what means this error message and what may I do to fix this problem? Because many users complain on inability to update, this question is really important, so I hope for early response.

Thank you!

Because this is really serious issue, may someone from Android PIT dev team give me explanation what error 5 means?

We are receiving many complains, from users that want's updated Locus application and due to this, we are unable to upload new version!!

Thank you

Good day,

is there any progress? Since I posted this question, we already published version with critical fixes and again same - same apk file uploaded on Google Play without problems, here error :5.

So may you tell me what is wrong? What means error 5 because I'm unable to find any explanation.

Thank you and please, make your response faster, because it's not just my problem. It gives bad shine also on you.

Good day,

I'm worried that you are serious.

Is there possibility to get information, what means "Error 5"? Thank you!

I'll also have one more question/task on you. Because app Locus Pro already purchased quite a lot of people (over AppCenter) we don't want to completely remove it from AndroidPIT. But because we are not very satisfied with your services for last year, we want to completely stop sell over AndroidPIT, but wants remain publishing updates (if it will be ever possible again!!!).

Is this possible? Thank you

I'm really disappointed about the service of AndroidPit. Two weeks without any valuable answer (thinking)...
I'm also thinking about leaving this store and buying Locus again at Google PlayStore.

Please solve this issue. I have to update my Locus Pro and do not like to buy it again on Google PlayStore.

@Alexander, @Elmar, @A.P, @Asamm Software, I am aware that you are having problems with :( but we are working hard on it !
Please keep patience by the time our developers fix this one out !

Hi Guys,

The developer who is respobsible for the store had a look at this. The problem is an exception in a third party library. To be specific:

At the moment the dev is working on another project which will occupy him for at least another 3-4 weeks. So I' very sorry to report that this is not going to be fixed within the next 4 weeks. I know this is frustating, but our dev-time is very thinly streched at the moment.

Sorry again :-(

Good day Caspar,

thanks for answer, but I'll need a few more answers now.

  1. why you need APKTool? Final apk files you publish are signed by same code, so you (AndroidPIT) do not do any modifications in app code before publishing.

  2. If update 1.5.2 break the code, then this affect all apps on AndroidPIT? If no, then why Locus?

  3. If update broke your system, why not to revert back to 1.5.0?

Thanks

Menion

  • We use version 1.5.0
  • Updating to 1.5.2 breaks the code.
  • Version 2.0 is in beta state.
  • Fixing this may take 3-5 days

Is this a joke? 4 weeks? I don´t belive, 4weeks, maybe 3 months, or never... like your very fast answer.
Can you give me my money back? You can´t i know...
