Comment 5 Atin 2011-12-02 11:43:41 UTC
We RUN JniDemo application on Google API 7 in Emulator on Debug/Release mode and got the  "Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK]"  error. 

We set the Target framework to 2.1 and again got the same error.

Environments:

Mac Lion 10.7
Mono for Android 10.7
Mono Develop 2.8.4-1
Comment 6 Atin 2011-12-22 09:36:30 UTC
Now this issue has been fixed. New issue occurs when we run the app on API7. Please refer to bug id
Bug 2219 -Error occurs when user start the application "JetBoy" on Emulator.
Bug 2209 -Error appears when build the application after setting Target Framework dropdown to Mono for Android 2.1 

Hence closing this issue.
