I’m looking into it and also posted a question about it on SO. By the way if any of you know something about this crash, please let me know.
This version has not been released to the Play Store so a possible fix for now is to uninstall the app and get it from the Play Store, or install the APK v143, but again you’ll need to uninstall first.
how can we be sure the v174 is installed ?
i'm not sure the installation update the v143, the install of the apk open a windows and close it very quickly
i' check the version of joplin but dont know where/how
ok so, as I said earlier, it does not crashed at all for me (on Android 8), but I got “unknown field” error message
But as I was stucked I wiped my joplin installation and so now it’s syncing since then.
I’d expect it won’t work if you downgrade because the db itself is not going to be downgraded, in fact it should throw an error. I’ll try to replicate your error later and see if I can provide a fix in the next version.
@foxmask, you’re probably not going to like this but I think the best solution is to uninstall and reinstall the app and resync. I’ve just tried upgrading v174 on a device that didn’t have the recent releases and it works fine.
I guess I’m using these “soft” releases to GitHub as a way to test the app on my own devices but I’ll avoid doing this in the future as I see quite a few people are relying on them. Maybe I’ll create a “joplin-beta” GitHub repo where I’ll releases these tests.
