    I have CCTV cameras and via my BT router with port forwarding I used to be able to view my cameras using an android app (VS500). Unfortunatley my BT router was upgraded and now it does not allow me easily to view my cameras by using the app. Basically I have to put in a different ip address if I am using the router wireless internally.

    My solution was to install two different versions of the app and put the different ip address etc in each one.

    However as soon as I try to install the app (using application installer on HTC ) it just overwrites the one already there.

    So is there any way I can install and run version 1 and ALSO version 2 of the same app on my HTC Wildfire (or Sensation)

    It can be done but it requires permission of the author of the app since it involves reverse engineering .I would suggest contacting the author and explaining your situation .

    Thanks for that, I will try but I have little hope as I believe the app is done by the Chinese.

    It's a great shame with the loads of CCTV apps I cannot get any of them to work :mad:

    Yeah ,well there are legal issues involved .It's actually a pretty simple hack but it absolutely requires permission of author .Sorry about that .

    As explained previously, physically altering an app or its code requires permission to avoid copyright issues.
