How to Update the Velocity APK on a VTP-1000VL

Summary: How to update the Velocity APK on the VTP-1000VL

1. Preparation

  • Download and install Platform Tools for your OS (Windows, Mac, or Linux)
  • Download the APK from soon to be provided link
  • Ensure your computer and the Velocity Touch Panel are on the same network

Note: The instructions below should work for both Windows and macOS.

2. Connect with ADB

  • For Windows users, I would recommend extracting the Platform Tools folder to the root C: drive. 
  • Move the APK into the Platform Tools folder as well. This will make locating the file easier.

3. Connect with ADB

  • Windows: In a terminal window (Command Prompt on Windows), navigate to the Platform Tools folder you have extracted:
    • cd c:\platform-tools
      • Hint: You can right-click the folder location and click copy to make this faster
      • mceclip0.png
  • Type the following command:
    • adb connect [touch panel IP address]:5555
    • Example:
      • adb connect

4. Install the APK

  • In the terminal window, type the command
    • adb install -r --user 0 "path to file"
      • Replace the "path to file" with the actual path to the file. You can use the above-mentioned Hint to copy the file path. 
    •  Windows - If you have placed the APK in the platform-tools folder:
      adb install -r --user 0 c:\platform-tools\velocity.apk
    • macOS:
      adb install -r --user 0 /users/username/Downloads/velocity.apk

5. Notes

  • You do not need to uninstall the APK first.
  • Installing the new APK will over-write the old APK.
  • No programming/custom UI's will be lost. All settings are stored in a separate file.
