In Android Release, Release Note

As you know we released 2.19.0.0 earlier but then got feedback that few Android 8.0/9.0 devices registered crash.

So the team has come up with Hotfix version 2.19.1.0 which will resolve crash occurred in Android 8.0/9.0 devices from the apps which are using the last version 2.19.0.0.

The crash does not occur in all Android mobile models where the crash was reported, but it may occur frequently depending on the characteristics of the app that applied version 2.19.0.0.

We recommended using version 2.19.1.0 to stop the crash.

 

What’s new in the HOTFIX release?

  • Security improved on Xiaomi MIUI’s dual app system
    When AppSealing deployed app is executed in the dual app environment, AppSealing security detects it as a security threat and disables the app from running. So, it prevents cheating apps running under the dual app environment.
  • Crashes occurring on Android device 8.0/9.0 fixed
    Fixes the crash on Android 8.0/9.0 which the end-users are using.
  • Sealing error fixed
    Fixes sealing error which occurred while deployment.
  • Fixed false positive of security
    Fixed false positive error reported from apps where armeabi and armeabi-v7a are present both.
