[Q] Installing Duplicate Skype / Multiple Instances Skype

Before you say it, YES, I've looked at the many other threads in this forum, stockoverflow, and other sites, all explaining the process of how you have to decompile the application APK file and change the package name in the manifest, then sign and install onto your phone. I was able to successfully do it on another application (application wouldn't run but it installed at least XD), but, I can't seem to get it to work on the Skype application. When I try to install the APK of my modified versions, the install just fails, with no error message to go off. I've tried on the latest version as of today, and I simply can't get it to work at all.

Is there anyone who has tried doing this already with Skype and had success? (If so, share your apk!)

Is there a reason why Skype specifically doesn't work? Or am I missing something?

I'd really appreciate feedback on this, I've ripped my hair out all day trying to do this and it just won't work. If anyone has anything which might help I'd greatly appreciate it. I simply wish to run 2 (or more would better) instances of the Skype application at once.
