How to Downgrade android version on Clover Station (production)


My App is not working in Android V4.2.2. (one of my clients reported the same).


I am curious if there is a way to downgrade my Stations android (currently in v10) to v4.2.2?

Also, are there other ways? Like emulator etc.?

I want to replicate the issue on my side.

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.

Each Clover device is on a hardened version of Android that cannot be downgraded. If you're looking to simulate the bug on an End of Lifed device, you will need to use Emulator as we do not sell Clover DevKit devices once they are out of production.

Does it mean we cant even upgrade?

1) What's the minimum Android version clover supports officially?

2) What's the minimum Android version emulator supports officially?

Following clover official SDK documentation, we are unable to create emulator for Android OS 4.2.2. Is there a reason? (The minimum emulator version we can create is 4.4.4).

Are you using the device profiles listed here? https://docs.clover.com/docs/setting-up-an-android-emulator

You should be able to pull the Station profile and set it up with Android 4.2
