Application Manager (AppMgr) administers the user applications on the device. It can be used to programmatically install, uninstall, upgrade and turn on (or off) the ability to launch an application, all with no need for user interaction. Read More>>

2. Under Settings tab, select FileMgr then AppMgr

5. Click on the (...) to browse for the location of the Velocity Client .APK file -- Velocity_Android_ARM_2.0.9.apk




6. Hit [Continue] then for AppMgr, set 'Action' to 'Upgrade'
7. And 'APK Path and Name' to /sdcard/Velocity_Android_ARM_2.0.9.apk (same target path in step 5)




8. Hit [Continue], review if needed then hit [Complete Profile>]
9. Test the completed profile.




10. After the device has been successfully stage, the Velocity Client version is now updated. For example 2.0.9.
