Android Men - Help Needed

Postby Zee » July 15th, 2020, 10:55 am

I got an A71, wanted to get Android Auto but all attempts to sideload it has ended in a "fail to install" error.
Any advice?

Even with a APK file?? Have you enabled 3rd party app installations?

use any free VPN app.....connect the VPN, clear all data from the play store then relaunch the play store....u should be greeted with the US version of the play store.....install android auto from there.

Did you enable "Install unknown apps" in the settings and "Allow from this source" first?
If you didn't, the phone would reject everything that doesn't come direct from the Play Store.

You can also sideload the app through Android Debug Bridge. Use command "adb install app_name.apk"

But first, Android Auto is officially on the Play Store for Android 10. Gsmarena says that the Samsung A71 runs Android 10.

Wen to APK Mirror. I got it there for all of my past androids.

Yup - 3rd party app installations is set to "allow"

I enabled it.
Can that sideload be done on the phone itself?
I checked the Play Store - nothing. And I am on Andriod 10

Make sure the APK version matches your hardware, might have different versions

Here are some things i also found with a few searches on this problem:
Wipe all data from the Play Store App. So when you restart your phone it has to log in with credentials from fresh.
Then disable "Play Protect" within the settings in the Play Store so it won't scan the device.

Find the apk from a different reputable source. We don't know if it was compiled wrong. Make sure it matches your Android version. Remember it's a risk you're taking by disabling security and installing unknown apps. These days Samsung has many extra layers of security on their devices that is a pain in the ass to bypass.

Sounds really tedious and risky as you said.
Is there anything you can recommend for me to use in place to connect the device to the car?
I saw a mirror mode or something of the sort

Use the VPN method, search for a video on YouTube showing you what to do. You have to force close play store etc. It's the safest method, all you got to do is fool the play store to connect to the us store. When you disconnect from the VPN it'll work fine.

I sideloaded android auto on a samsung j7 prime shitphone without issues.
It's ok, rarely use it.

I use mostly spotify, which was also sideloaded.

Both from APKmirror, no issues to install. not sure what your issue may be

Update:
I did not get around to doing anything, then yesterday I saw Android Auto get integrated into Google Maps. So now I have it straight from Google.
Thanks to everyone who tried to help!
