I've made some tiny changes and reuploaded for people who are using really old 32bit android-x86.
It should resolve the following issues
  • Error during installation
  • Errors in PackageManager
Notice: If you're already having a bunch of kernel-packages downloaded before this update, then you must re-download them since those won't be able to properly update kernel unless you're using DarkMatter. (All the kernel-pkgs have been rebuild & re-uploaded)

How to update ?
Do the same thing which you used for installing the old version. I mean you don't need to care about it. Just install over anything and it's done.

This update is mainly focused in stability and as much bug-fixes as possible.
