Version 18.0 Beta (UnClone/Original)


Khobana! They did not expect?

Meet the public beta version of Instander 18. A lot of time has passed since the last update. I had to do much work for you to see it now. During all this time, almost everything was redone. The structure and logic have been changed, and the modification code has been completely rewritten. But it’s still not perfect. And I know this; that’s why the beta version is needed. It may contain errors/shortcomings/bugs.

If you don’t want to deal with all this, don’t install it and wait for the release.

Read before you start using:

  1. This is a beta version, and errors may occur. Use the “Instander Issues” section in the settings if you find an error. There, you need to fill out a form to report errors. Do not write about errors in chats or private messages to me. Only the form!
    So here is a list of already found and known errors (https://telegra.ph/Instander-known-errors-12-24).
  2. In Instander settings and features only English. I updated many lines, so the old translations are no longer valid. If you want to help with translation, go to settings; there is a “Translate” tab.
  3. There will be no clone version. Don’t ask, don’t whine, don’t beg. Clone only on release!
  4. There will be no list of changes because if you compile it by commit, there will not be enough characters in the message. A lot has been done. Explore.
  5. Only Android 9 and higher. And the processor architecture is Arm64-v8.

For now, I’m taking a two-week break for the holidays. After that, I will fix bugs and finish them before release.

Happy holidays, everyone!

Update:

I want to explain a little why there has been no update for so long

More than 26 days have passed since the public announcement of the start of work on the new version, but there is still no update. And judging by the last update, more than 10 months have passed, and that’s a lot. But why does this happen?

I experienced a bit of burnout at the beginning of the year and lost interest in developing Instander. And I switched to my other projects. Over time, I regained the desire to work on Instander, not just to release another update but to make it high-quality, using new knowledge and experience. This leads to the second reason for the delay: I’m rewriting all the code from scratch. I remove unused code, adapt it to the new 28th SDK (previously, there was SDK 25 and higher) and optimize it. This will make the application more stable and allow me to add new features.

At the moment, I have only 25% of all functionality ready. Unfortunately, my perfectionism and desire to optimize everything and everyone constantly return me to ready-made code, with the desire to remake it even better. And therefore, the process is very slow.

At the moment, it is ready:

  • New, more flexible and structured application architecture.
  • Updated media downloader.
  • Updated settings menu.
  • Improved Insider Verify.
  • Lots of small changes that are difficult to group into one category, but that make a big difference to me in terms of development.

At the moment, I’m working on a new version of In-App Update, and this is quite important because in the future, if I do everything right, updates should be much more frequent and updated through the application should be convenient, fast and stable.

What’s not ready:

  • Advertising cutout function.
  • Additional gestures.
  • Ghost Mode.
  • Quality improvement.
  • Material You theme.
  • Add. menu for comments.

Unfortunately, I cannot say the exact or even approximate release date of the update. There’s a lot of work to be done.

However, the work is ongoing, and there will be an update.
