    Some more information would be helpful.

    What version of Z4 did you use? Are you on a Mac or a PC? Where are you trying to get any .apks? Anything else you might consider pertinent would be helpful. Thank you. :)

    Newest version being what? 1.3? If so, yes, that's the latest version. Again, are you using a Mac or a PC? I'm guessing PC if you're talking the SDK, but I could be wrong.

    What system version do you have? I ask because I've seen a lot of people saying they have the latest version of anything and they've been two or three revisions behind.
