    Hi, if I get a newer version of an IPK,
    do I have to instal lthe old version - potentially loseing all the setups, or can I just install over the top or what?

    bit scared to dive in!

    Thanks
    Jeff

    I would think it is an APK the OP means.

    No need to uninstall the old version, it will install fine and update.

    Yes, an APK, no idea where IPK came from.
