  2. Open your Settings > Application Manager > All and select FrostWire, then click the button “Force stop” and “Uninstall” the app.
  3. Open your internet browser – Firefox or any browser other than Chrome – on your device and go to http://www.frostwire.com/downloads
  4. Select the Android icon on the website and then click on the button “Get the APK”
  5. Open your file manager (like File Commander) and go to the folder “Downloads”
  6. Select the .apk file downloaded from frostwire.com/downloads (it should be frostwire-android-release-[versionNumber]-b[buildNumber]-plus.apk) and open it with the app “Package Installer”

FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including BitTorrent support. In version 5, Gnutella support was dropped entirely, and FrostWire is only a BitTorrent client. Development of the program has been active since the program was first released in September 2004.
