Running on old Android versions

F-Droid repos generally maintain support for old F-Droid releases for a long time. That means that old F-Droid releases will continue to work for years. That provides a path to run F-Droid on very old Android releases. Here are the download links for installing the newest release that runs on a given Android release:

Please note that many apps on F-Droid may no longer support such old Android versions. It is recommended to enable the “F-Droid Archive” repository in the F-Droid app. Enabling the archive lets F-Droid show you older versions of apps, which may include versions that still work on your device.
