    I have a z10 running the old 10.1 update and I don't fell like updating the whole os. I wanted to know could I just update the runtime so that I can download and run the new apk files on it without updating the whole o's

    Depends if the runtime you want to update is compatible with your OS version
    I understand from this that you want the 10.2.1. runtime on your 10.1. OS, no?
    As 10.1 is an old OS already it is highly unlikely it will work, but I'll let the experienced ones give you a answer

    The runtime may work, it may not. I really don't think it will because the 1015 runtime wouldn't even work on earlier 10.2.1 OSes. I have not tried that far back, so i doubt it would.
    HOWEVER, even if it worked, you would NOT be able to install apk files, because that is a new component in the 10.2.1 OS, and it's called "app installer" process in or installerui in OSes. I have managed to extract this component, BUT, it will not load on pre- OSes because it requires access to certain parts of memory that is allowed in OSes, and not before. It will give you a memory error if you load it (yes, I've tried on multiple OSes).
    So, long story short, if you want to use the apk installer, you will have to update to OS. I recommend backing up and then using an autoloader just because OTA updating, or using delta update bars to jump 2 major revisions will almost definitely mess things up. Hell, even going from 10.2.0 to 10.2.1 messed things up for people in android runtime, SMS, etc

    There are so many great improvements since 10.1, why in the world wouldn't you want to upgrade to 10.2 or 10.2.1? The os feels so much more mature now, very fluid with many great features that just weren?t there in 10.1. I recommend you try it. And it will solve your apk issue.

    I went ahead and did the update. My z10 runs smoother now.

    Will the runtime of new leak work on 1925?
    And will it fix the "app could not be installed" error? Or do I need other files than "android" and "shell"?

    I just loaded the files and it's working okay, but the stuff with the install error still has it... I think I need that installer bar if anyone can provide it?
