# How do I ignore chapters from certain scanlator groups?

Every now and then you find a manga that is translated by more than one group, because of this you get multiple releases for every chapter in the manga. To fix this the easiest way is to change sorting to Total chapters. You won't see any changes but, when you start reading you'll automatically skip the duplicate releases.


Change library sorting by going to

My library
Sort section then in this case selecting Total chapters.

# Why do I see attempt to invoke virtual method 'com.hippo.unifile...?

This error can be caused by a variety of reasons, all to do with storage.


  • Most commonly it is caused by full storage, check to see if your device or SD Card is full
  • Tachiyomi doesn't have access to SD card enabled in permissions for the app
  • If you're downloading and this error pops up, that means the app might not be able to access the folder you're trying to download to.
  • This may be because the folder is corrupted or does not exist. Use a file manager to check that the folder(s) actually exist and every folder in the sequence is available and accessible.
  • The drive you're writing to is corrupted. Check using a file manager to see if it is accessible.

# Reader

# Why are some images not displayed?

Aside from network issues, it could be because the images are too big or that the decoder doesn't support that image type.

# Downloads

# What happened to the simultaneous downloads feature?

It was removed to prevent IP bans caused by too many requests. We know that speed is being sacrificed but it's better than not being able to access a source at all.

# Downloads are unstable

Be aware that it could be a network issue on your device or on the catalog you are trying to download from.

# Can you make it possible to store manga on both internal storage and external SD-card?

At the moment, no. You could try using symlinks but that requires having your phone rooted.

# Miscellaneous

# What happened to the F-Droid version?

F-Droid is no longer an officially supported option. Both the stable and dev builds now include an autoupdate mechanism.

An unofficial F-Droid repo is available at tachi.efreakbnc.net.

# Why do I get a App not installed error when installing?

You may encounter this if you're installing an official build over an existing F-Droid build due to differing signatures.

Backup your data, uninstall the app, then restore the data in the fresh install.

# iOS Version

There is currently no iOS version and there are no plans for one and since iOS and Android apps don't share code it's hard to port.

# I lost everything, what now?

Tachiyomi is still in beta and some design changes or unexpected errors may lead to data loss. While we try for them not to happen, sometimes it is unavoidable. To avoid this in the future, you can use the automatic backup feature.
