Can’t install Google Play Books and Google Play Video (Parse error)Google Play Books and Google Play Video do not install on some devices and give a Parse error
The reason of the problem is related to the Android version, Android 3.2 Honeycomb (API Level 13) minimum is required. Arnova G2 devices for instance run Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Platform API Level 9)
Here is ADB logcat output on an Arnova 10G2:
W/PackageParser( 844): /mnt/storage/com.google.android.videos-1.apk (at Binary XML file line #33): Requires newer sdk version #13 (current version is #9)
W/PackageInstaller( 844): Parse error when parsing manifest. Discontinuing installation
We will be soon packaging these updates in our custom firmwares.
