    I'm trying to finish an app but it's stuck on an old version. I've tried the following:

    • Updating Android Studio and updates in the SDK manager

    • uninstalling the app off my phone and reinstalling

    • cleaning

    • make sure "Gradle-aware Make" is in run configurations

    • File - invalidate caches

    • make sure "Skip installation" is unticked.

    • delete the build folder of the project and rebuilt

    • adb shell pm clear com.packagename.app - "Success" but not fixed

    • adb shell uninstall com.packagename.app - "Success" but not fixed

    • Increase versionCode and versionName in build.gradle

    • Change build variant

    • Making a new project and copying the files
    I'm pretty sure that the two phones that are having this problem are keeping an old version of the app that just won't go away. Can anyone explain this?

    What do you mean by "stuck" (what are you seeing that tells you this)?

    Is the app in a "Disabled" state on your phone?
