Can we update device detection library instead of piwik upgrade

Hi ,

We are using piwik 2.10 and some of OPPO brand devices are not being detected and shown as unknown devices so my question is that if we can only update device detection library instead of upgrade to new piwik version ?

Kind Regards,


you could try replacing the yaml files with the latest ones from github, but I can’t promise that won’t break everything.

@SteveG, do you have any idea?

Piwik 2.10 is really old. I’d really recommend you to upgrade to the latest version. What is keeping you from upgrading?

Updating the yml files only might break some stuff as there have been changes that aren’t compatible

thanks @Lukas

Yeah we are planning to upgrade piwik but thinking if meanwhile we can only upgrade device detection library only.

Thanks again.
