The latest lichess app version requires Kitkat (4.4) or newer to install.

4.12.1 should work fine as far as I'm aware.

Thanks. I tested:
lichess mobile 4.12.1 don`'t install with my Android 4.2.1
lichess mobile 4.12.0 don`'t install with my Android 4.2.1
lichess mobile 4.11.1 YES! This work with my android 4.2.1, but this version is old and buggy.
I download all version from as .apk and install from sdcard (I have root).

Can I use hack&trick for install new version (latest) lichess mobile on my older phone bypassing (avoid) check version in google market?

I believe not. You can't "trick the phone in this way", since the latest version apk was compiled in such a way that requires you to run Marshmallow (6.0) or higher. Specifically, as of now, the app uses SDK API 23 which equals to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. So no, you can't use the trick you proposed.
