Doesn't seem like too big a problem. I don't think you need to download 2.1.4.
In the second link you provided:
A) You use Godot 2.1.x and don't need any specific Android permissions: We've built a new 2.1.4-stable template with all placeholder permissions removed, so you can use it as custom template to export your game.
I'd try that custom template and see if your application still works as expected, and if it does, redeploy.
