Why do we suddenly have to upgrade BOINC to run WuProp and NOT be NOTIFIED in the forums?
Or is this ANOTHER BUG as was encountered when WuProp was upgraded to various Version 4.xx?


I (as well as MANY other user here) run NativeBOINC and CAN NOT update that to a newer version until the program creator, Mateusz RELEASES A NEW VERSION.

Below is the WARNING NOTICE I received when my Nexus 7 Android (HOST# 64223) tablet sent in it's completed task and requested a new task. Same message when I tried a manual update:

They installed another test app and broke the system again. Wonder how long this will take to fix. We also lose hours of calculating time, etc.

I also run NativeBOINC on 2 quad core android devices. I depend on these devices to get me hours on WUprop.
I use the NativeBOINC because the other Android programs don't work well on either of my devices.
I am really disappointed that there is no WUprop task running on either of them today.

So far I have LOST 9*4 = 32 HOURS and climbing.
I ONLY see this "FEATURE" ON MY ANDROID DEVICE.

According to the Applications page Test application for android 7.3.7 is the ONLY version available for Android.

Well, same problem here. I use navice boinc because of the nicer gui and because it uses less resources, so the wu's run faster.
No new wu's from wuprop.

Would be nice to see a response from a moderator or developer here.

yep, +1

Not only am I not getting new WU on either of the Android devices,(even after de-tach , re-attach) and are-boot to upgraded system...
The ones that were completed left all the hours logged in each of the WUprop files unprocessed. The work remains in the "hours pending" column.

* more problems than just a new file version, is my guess.

ditto: 2 tasks , 2 devices
still curious about "hung" hours in pending column
time will tell, I don't mind so much to loose the hours but I hope it cleans up ok.
