    Default how do I install an app that requires android jelly bean on ICS?

    l want to install an app that requires android 4.1 but my phone is on 4.0.1 is there a way to install the app? I've tried rooting my kyocera event but can't. I've tried installing the app with unknown sources checked but I get the error "trouble parsing package". Can someone please help.

    Rooting doesn't allow that. You can flash a ROM based on a higher version of Android but that's the only recourse you have.

    The developer coded the ROM for 4.1 and above. Aside form flashing a custom ROM that is 4.1 and better, you can't install it.
