How to install/sideload split APKs/zipped .APKS file (NO root)



At this summer, many developers are using app bundles (split apk) for some reason, more likely reducing size of APK... It seems Google are highly recommending all devs to use bundles right now. Fortunately, it's still installable. Still it does slowing down modding process.
This has bugged me for a while. So I decided to make quick tutorial

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install split APKs and .APKS file extension

First all all, check your device CPU architecture and supported ABIs
Download and install AIDA64 from Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.finalwire.aida64

Open It and go to CPU -> and find Instruction Set and ABI Information


ARMv7 (32-bit) devices support: armeabi, armeabi-v7a
ARM64 (64-bit) devices support: armeabi, armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a
x86 (32-bit) devices support: armeabi, armeabi-v7a, x86
x64 (64-bit) devices support: armeabi, armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a, x86, x86_64

Now you know if splitted APKs is supported for your device

Go to Playstore and download the Split APKs Installer (SAI) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aefyr.sai


Open it. You will be welcomed to this screen. Click Install APKs

 

Navigate to location where you stored Split APKs. Select them all


Or you can select .apks file extension


Click Select

You will be prompted to install. Click Install


Wait…

You will see a message that it has been installed successfully.


If you see an error message, then you may have used wrong split APK, wrong ABI, broken APK, APK with invalid signature…

Open the game and enjoy!
