I don't know how to turn off the version checks but all I do to get around version too old error is open the rom zip and open "android-info.txt" and edit the "mainver:" line to a number higher then my current one. Not sure if this is the right thing to do but it works.

It should save, try to pull that file out of the zip archive, edit, save it then put it back in.
