I have a device that I cant get the software to install. Its not available in the play store, and when I try to side load it, I get invalid package.

Anyone have any ideas? this is a brand new 'Media Tek' brand. Model ZL10. It has Android 8.1 on it.

I am confused!

A tablet that's less than $50? If it were me, I'd steer clear of it. The reason the app isn't installing is probably because the tablet lacks some required hardware.

Unfortunately its not mine... I am trying to help a friend set up. He is on a fixed budget, and trying to help track a local jammer. We were hoping to have 2 units out in the field instead of just mine.

If it's not showing up on Google Play then that probably means something is not compatible with your tablet. A bit weird though as that model seems to support everything needed.

If you browse to https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... imebearing on the device it should tell you why it's not compatible with your device.

No indication at all, just says it is not compatible.

What I find strange, is if I attempt to put the APK direct (as a side load) it says its unable to parse the file.... as in doesnt even attempt to install....

I'm afraid I just don't know sorry. I've tried it on many devices but never one of those.
