To update an existing MAD install, first stop MAD (this varies depending on how you run MAD), and then update the git repository.

git pull

Then start MAD again.


There are a lot of ways to update an APK on an Android device, probably the most easy way is to use the MADmin Wizard.

Good alternatives are:

  • ADB (adb install -r app.apk)

  • Simple MADmin job (Jobs –> Create APK install job)

  • Shell scripts like update_mad.sh


When using Docker for hosting MAD you can just pull newer Docker images for every container from the hub:

docker-compose pull

Make sure to restart the stack afterwards.
