How to Install the app twice without interference in android?

I have an Android app (let's called X), I want to create a second app X2 but based on the other app. So I changed the manifest application name property to X2 also I changed the package name...but still when I install X2, app X is erased!

What properties should I change so I can install the two app independently on one devices. I'm working on eclispe.

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.company.app1"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0" >

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name1"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >


after change.

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.company.app2"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0" >

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name2"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >

Answer

Well it worked on other device with more recent platform ! Anyway the proper response will be you just have to change the name and the package of the application.
