I wanted to use the Hue Essentials app on my Xiaomi Mi 10 phone (running xiaomi.eu 12.2.2 ROM) because it offers the “Smart Home Control” capabilities, which were introduced with Android 11. Since this is a premium feature and I don’t use a Google account on my phone, I had to download it over the Amazon appstore. Unfortunatly, the installation of the APK fails without a detailed message. The appstore itself doesn’t show anything and ‘intercepting’ the APK and installing it directly just prints “There was a problem parsing the package”.
Installing it on a different device (OnePlus X with Android 10 custom ROM) works without problems.
So my questions are:
Does anyone know if there is a known problem with Xiaomi devices / xiaomi.eu Roms?
Is there a good way to get further information from the device in order to debug such a problem?
Is there a way to buy premium without an app store (directly from developer to receive code which can be redeemed)?
Thanks for any help or tips!
EDIT: Installing the regular (non-amazon) APK works just fine.
