[Ovmsdev] Android app updated, lost my car

Yes, that happened to my phone installation as well, and to many others.

It didn't happen when running the build directly from Android Studio on my devices.

We didn't change anything about the config storage data structures. We only changed the minimum API level support from 14 to 16 (there were no installations on
API 14 anymore) and the target API level from 27 to 28:


I just also got reports from people who cannot start the new App at all, even not after erasing the config data. One report says it can only enter the config
while the phone is on flight mode (no network), and it will crash as soon as network is reactivated.

I have no idea how that could happen by that API level change. Google magic.
