Dear @exodus community,

As your saw, seen now 5 days, submission of new applications on the platform is disabled.

In fact Google reject all our download APK download request.
We change the password of our accounts, we made several Google verification but nothing seems to work more than one hour.

We are looking for a solution or a workaround, but as you know we are all volunteers and our free time is not expandable to infinite. We need to take care of us, our family and friends.

@exodus Don't worry, take your time! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the problems can be solved!
But above all, take care of yourselves ❤️ !

@exodus Google being just Google... Sorry to hear that, I hope that your problems got resolved. Best regards.

@neo @exodus I'm surprised f-droid isn't the default place to upload apps.

@critical @neo

In fact @fdroidorg already use @exodus tools in there process.

Downloading apks from them and retest them is not our first goal.

We recently add the ability to analyze applications from F-Droid.

Sorry for them and for us, but F-droid is not the first store for many many people. We have to act as "ordinary people" and grab apk form the same source.

@exodus@framapiaf.org @critical@blob.cat @fdroidorg@mastodon.technology im not saying you have to be on them only, but not having an apk available there is asking for exactly the situation you're in right now

@neo : Do you understand that @exodus is talking about *others applications* they analyze?

If they want to analyze whatsapp, for example, they have to download the apk from PlayStore...

@critical @fdroidorg

@Artanux @neo @exodus @fdroidorg I thought that, apart from the website, they also had an app you can download.

@exodus
I hope everything will be OK. Anyway thanks a lot for your works, it's really important to me and to the community

@exodus If you find a solution, I’d be glad if you could share it. We’ve been holding off on plans to put Freenet Mobile¹ into the appstore because we fear that Google will just reject it.

¹: github.com/freenet-mobile/app

@exodus if this is related to the captcha, see github.com/NoMore201/googlepla . No time to patch currently, I'm sorry. Or maybe just wait for upstream gpapi to be patched.

@Matlink

We use gpapi now and we will try those patches.

Stay tune.

@Fritange

We will try to share in infos with them…

Let see… 🙂

@exodus @aral users could upload titanium backup exports of apps?

@claudius @aral

Could be an idea but… In fact no.

We need to have a single way to grab apks. And the most used is Google Play. With this method, we can guaranty that we download exactly the same apk as every body.

@exodus The Aurorastore still works, how do they fetch .apk's from Google?

@exodus Do you think that a valid workaround to avoid these download rejects could be to allow users to download the app to analyse and send it to exodus server, which verify and analyse it then publish tracking results?
Just a suggestion. Take care of you and take time as long as you need. 😘

@exodus That is extremely concerning. @exodus has become an indispensable service for the privacy conscious community!

Thanks for your great work, btw.!

If this persists, it has to be regarded as yet another act of sabotage and abuse of monopoly-powers by Google.

@exodus try the aurora store?
It's an alternative client for the google play store, with anonymous logins.
Should get you the right apks.
