    So I have this fast and furious app and would like to keep the 1.0.5 version . I have disable the settings in Google Play menu and etc. But when I open the game it says:

    New Version Available- A new version is available! Download from the App store now.


    Anyway to continue using the older version without updating?

    TY in advance.

    Internet firewall may do the trick. Or it may not let u play. Lol. Droidwall is my favorite internet firewall app

    droid wall is outdated there are other apps based on droidwall that are more up to date. ive heard that DroidWall doesnt play well with ics or jb.

    I've had great success with it myself but yes there are alternatives. Point being: block the data access of your app and see if that bypasses the update and let's you play.

    unless said game needs a live internet connection to be used.

    True droid wall is old. However, it plays fine with ICS and JB. I have had no problems using it.

    no it doesn't work.. and internet connection is needed to play the game...so turning the WiFi off doesn't work either

    Well unless there is a setting in the game to tell it not to look for an update, then I guess you may be stuck.

    is there any particular reason you don't want to update it?

    I can think of lots of reasons to not update an app. Several time I have found the newer version of an app sucks when compared to the version you had before, or a feature was removed and you liked that feature, etc...

    Ya titanium backup is ur friend here. If ever I update and don't like it, I restore the old backup instead of renewing it
