AppInventor Support Android9

Hello MIT!
Is there a way to continue building your apps with the Android 9 SDK? My phone is still pretty good. It just doesn't get an update to Android 10 anymore.

Yes, you can still building your apps with Android 9 on the MIT AI2

Hi Salman!
Thank you for your prompt reply! But how do I do that? Where do you set the SDK or Android version?

do you mean where to set Minimum SDK and Target SDK Version?

yes, where can i find it in AppInventor?

sorry you can't set it from mit app inventor

How can i do that?

you only need to create your project here :

Info :
Target SDK Version = 29
Minimum SDK Version = 7

"Target Android SDK: 29 (Android 10.0)" ist not the goal!

It's a shame that MIT AppInventor 2 only generates apps in SDK29. So all those who have less than Android10 are excluded ...

we must have had a communication problem, I must have expressed myself incorrectly ...

But I can still run the App made using MIT AI2, even though my cellphone is SDK Version 28

Hello Michael,
It seems that you misunderstood the difference between the min. SDK version and the target SDK version,
Here you can learn more about them:

There was a topic about this too in kodular community:


OK! Then it's probably due to my phone.

Thank you very much for your patience.

You're welcome @Michael_Bernhardt :wink: :+1:
and don't forget to close this topic if your problem is resolved. thank you

What's due to your phone?
Where is the problem?

I sometimes work on my project. Most recently a year ago. If I let MIT AppInventor create the same project, the program crashes. I do not know how to continue. Maybe I have a little time between the holidays to check it out ...

Extensions can be a problem if you have them in your application.

Post the blocks.
See here (β†’ point 3):

in my project there are three extensions. I have to try if it works without it. thanks for the tip!

Maybe one of them has not yet been updated to the AndroidX libs.
