Is there a way to download older SQLite AAR files for Android? I need to download v3.7.11, KitKat's version of SQLite.

There's nothing that old unfortunately. 3.7.11 is from 2012, but we didn't start building Android packages until 2014.

Not sure exactly what you're trying to do, but I'd say if you get amalgamation files for 3.7.11 and then build then into a custom aar file following method (2) here:


it will probably work.

If you're targeting a particular build of Android, then surely the required libraries are part of the Android 4.4 NDK?

Also, SQLite is upward compatible, so if you link to a newer version of SQLite, it will still read the old files written by SQLite 3.7.11. Using certain new features can modify the DB in a way that older versions won't cope, but this is usually manageable with an upgrade path on your application's side.

There are many, many good reasons to upgrade.

Does anyone know if this version is available as an aar? 2015-05-21 17:24:32 b3bb660af9472e2c511d1fe87b5193256f74c0db

I couldn't find it in the tree history.
