For one project, I need to use the 'data sending via SMS' feature of ODK collect. I remember that it was integrated and worked pretty OK till collect v1.19, but then discontinued due to some google play permissions issue. I have the APK for that version. How/what should I modify in the code so that after installing the APK on the phone, it does not detect the newer/current version of ODK Collect as an upgrade to itself, and try to upgrade it automatically via google store? I know I can ask the user to manually disable updating in google play for this app, but I really need to make sure that the field users may not be able to update it at all, even by mistake (else I will lose the SMS feature, as it is not present in the current version).
In summary, the idea is that I modify the code and distribute+install it as a standalone APK to my project field users, and the app should not be able to update itself.
