Until recently I have developed an Android App in Eclipse that runs stable on my Nexus 7 (2013).

I now switched to Android Studio 2.1 and want to do further development of the app (transferred the project to AS more or less successfully)

What I want to have is the old Eclipse-made app remaining on my Nexus as a stable use for production environment and debug/run the new AS-based project on my Nexus without having to deinstall the old app.

My Nexus is running stock Android 6.0.1 without any "hacks/jailbreaks". The project consists of 2 modules.

What exact steps are necessary to achieve this?
Thanks in advance!

It seems that I always googled for the wrong terms ...
Had to change Application Id under Module Settings / Flavors and rename packages.
