Long Journey to Get Pokemon Go Installed on My Phone

Saturday 16 July 2016 | post a comment

LGYes, it’s not easy to install Pokemon Go on my smartphone. My device is LG G Pro Lite which released in November 2013. Yes it’s absolutely old.

After downloading the APK file (Pokemon Go isn’t available in Playstore Indonesia), I tried to execute it. A warning message appear on my device: “There was a problem parsing the package”

Previously I have facing same problem when installing an APK on my Gingerbread devices. The problem is, my Android operating system (OS) software is too old. I think I have same problem on my LG here. So I check the Pokemon GO requirements.

I realize that my device OS does not fit to the requirements. The Pokemon Go require KitKat Android version, meanwhile my device is using Jellybean. That mean, I have to upgrade my device operating system to KitKat.

After doing some research ( googling on bing <-- 😆 ), gladly I found that my device were support Kitkat OS and it's available via OTA update. So, I fully charge my smartphone to prepare it doing OTA update to upgrade my OS. (to be continued)

Ekosistem Android sendiri menurut saya cukup mengerikan, di mana selain Google yang menyediakan aplikasi monitoring yang berjalan di belakang, pabrikan smartphone sendiri juga ternyata tidak mau kalah. ( More … )

Some handset provider give an update to their customer with the latest software. Just do some few click, downloading the update, and finally install it. But, not all handset provider giving update to their users.

Even worst, handset provider it’s also don’t provide any driver for their handset hardware. Meanwhile, upgrading into the latest version sometimes mean using new kernel.

upgrade

If your vendor didn’t give firmware driver for the latest kernel, that mean your handset has been abandoned. It’s because, your hardware can’t function well (or even not work) in new kernel.

Well, it’s time for me to move on. Finaly I’ve got new handset and that mean, my previous Windows Mobile really got dumped and left behind.

My new handset is Android powered devices, based on chinese hardware. Well that’s OK since my device able to run Firefox browser for Android. The minimum requirement to running Firefox is devices with 512MB RAM. Opera still my favourite browse because it has feature to not load the images.
