I'm trying to download updated apks for updating sideloaded apps for limited access Android devices. When I go to the page at https://tech.churchofjesuschrist.org/dl/android/ it indicates that I need to sign the ICLA, however I already have signed it as indicated by clicking the link.

I haven't found any help or support references, where should I report this issue?

I am having the same issues for the download links for the projects I am signed up for.

The download pages associated with Tech projects are no longer being maintained or published to. Are you able to install the Google Play Store or Amazon Appstore on your device?

For privacy reasons, I use a custom rom version of Android that does not include the Google Play Store. Is there any official way to get the church apps (Gospel Library, Member Tools, Gospel Living), without having to use the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store?

I found some of the apps out there on the Internet, but I would really prefer to get the apps directly from the church.

Is there any way these apps can be provided again?

Gospel Library is also on the Amazon Appstore. If you're able to install the Amazon Appstore on your device (which you should be able to on most Android devices), you can install Gospel Library and Sacred Music from there.

Member Tools and Gospel Living are not available on the Amazon Appstore.

Thank you for that. Having multiple solutions is definitely important here.

I suppose there is still a barrier there though, as the Amazon App Store is asking for a login. Someone's involvement in and usage of a corporation's services should not determine that person's involvement in the church provided apps.

Is there anything I can do to help resolve this? I may be able to put some sort of mirror site online, if the apps can be provided to me. Or, is there any other privacy respecting solution that is an approved source?

If this page can be fixed:

I think that would solve this. However, when I click the link to sign the ICLA, I see that I have already agreed, but I don't get any download link.
