Original Post 

Play Store (Android 2.1 or later) / App Store (iOS 7.0 or later) [Recommended method]

  • Use your device and go online (by Wi-Fi or Packet Data).
  • Open "Play Store (Android) / App Store (iOS)" app.
    • If Google/Apple requests you to key in your Google/Apple account details, please do so.
  • Search "T-Aiko!"
  • Press "Install", then "Accept and Install"
  • Wait and "T-Aiko!" will be installed to your device.


Request by browser (Alternate device required)
Reference: Android central entry.

  • You need an alternate device (most likely, a desktop computer or laptop) and log-in with a Play Store account (linked to at least, one device you want it to install in).
  • Then, go to T-Aiko! page in Google's Play Store and "Install".
    • If Google requests you to key in your Google account details or for confirmation, please do so.
  • The device linked to the currently logged-in Google Play account will start to download and install T-Aiko! by Play Store.
    • The alternate device (i.e., desktop computer or laptop) will not download anything. You are free to search and install other apps while waiting for the device in question to complete the download.

Note: Both devices must be connected to the Internet and logged-in with the same Google Play account.

.APK download [Unsafe]

  • Search and download the .apk file in question.
  • Transfer to the device in question.
  • Install the .apk file.
    • If there is a pop-up warning, read the warning carefully and enable the settings to allow for installation from unknown source yourself. Redo the installation step again after changing the settings.

Note: This type of installation carry the highest risk of getting malware. Unless you have a good reason (such as re-installing T-Aiko v1 from a backup application or the device has limited Internet connectivity), use the above installation method instead.



Adding Beatmaps

  • Connect your device to desktop computer/laptop with USB cable.
    • You may need to configure your device to USB mode to connect the desktop computer/laptop. Please do so before plugging in and/or making any report.
  • Put the songs files (either in .osz or folder form) into T-Aiko/Songs directory.
    • Directory will vary if you did modify it in "Option";"Song Folder". You need to put in that directory you set instead.
  • Plug off your device and launch T-Aiko!
  • Go to Song selection ("Solo" / "Online";"Daily") and press the refresh button at the upper-right of the screen, located beside the (cloud download button / info button about Competitive Mode).
  • Your new beatmaps are now playable.

Why my profile rank and score did not increase?

  • Currently, the only way to increase your rank and score is by playing the beatmap list specified in "Online";"Daily"
  • Playing "Solo" is akin to playing offline, for now.
    • Even if the beatmap is 100% same as the list and you gained a new record, it will not be counted towards your profile as long as you keep playing in "Solo", online or offline.

I added a new beatmap and T-Aiko! didn't load it

  • You did not hit the refresh button at the upper-right of the "Select a Song".
  • You placed the beatmap at the wrong beatmap directory or you set a wrong beatmap directory. Set the beatmap directory properly and place your beatmap to a proper beatmap directory.
  • [Using T-Aiko! Online's DDL] If the download was interrupted/incomplete and cannot be extracted, there will be a pop-up to notify you about it. To rectify this, you need to use your file manager to search and delete the bad beatmap file yourself. You can redownload it after that.

I have a lot of beatmaps at osu!droid/Songs...

  • From Main Menu, press Options -> Song Folder.
  • Modify "mnt/sdcard/T-Aiko/Songs" to "mnt/sdcard/osu!droid/Songs".
  • Return to Main Menu.
  • Press T-Aiko application and go to Solo/Online (Song selection). Your beatmaps should appear.
    • If your new beatmaps did not appear, press the refresh button located at the upper-right screen. It will recompile the beatmaps library.

Can I use the old T-Aiko/osu!droid account?

  • No.
