FYI,I used an old Android device and installed and experimented with the latest Boinc version. Got it working by adjusting the RAM slider down a bit rom 100 to 98%. Looks to be stable after 36 hours.

I'm not getting any hours for this project but I can see that at least one other person is. I'm just about to complete my 2nd work unit.

There's a thread about this battery error/issue on Github with some workarounds for users to try out.

Yes, the screen has to be on all of the time on most Androids.
Pete


Guess I'll have to run it that way then. The other Blackview I had that went dead the screen would turn off & BOINC kept running & the other Android Tab I have same thing so I was expecting this Blackview to be the same ... Weird


I have a Blackview running Android 10 and that doesn't need the screen on. Not researched why some do and some don't, maybe its down to Android version, hardware differences, free memory or the way Boinc is setup?

Yes, the screen has to be on all of the time on most Androids. I have loads of Androids running and while some will run without the screen on the vast majority wont. I use developer options to set the screen timeout to never then turn the display right down to minimum brightness which helps to delay swelling of the battery. The Huawei tablets I bought from February 2020 to June 2021 have run 24/7 since then with no battery issues and one of my Samsung tablets since 2018!

No problem. I reported the battery issue several months ago but nothing has been done, I had to uninstall the latest version so lost all my stats for that device on WCG. Not sure where I found 7.18.1 though. I should add that 7.18.1 has the same battery issue but only with the Go version of Android. Deleting the Boinc cache will fix this problem for a while.

There's an issue with the latest version of Boinc for Android. You need to find Version 7.18.1 which is no longer on Stanfords site. The latest version is crap and won't work as it clearly hasn't been tested properly before release.

And now the Project has done a name change to SPT@home. All the users and Apps moved across automatically without detaching and reattaching.


My hours are now no longer being counted since the project changed its name.

You need to use Boinc 7.18.1. Under Enable remote control there's a box that you need to tick.

You need to enable remote control under boinc preferences on your androids.

I'm not getting any units for any of Androids. I've enabled Remote Control, tried a reset and removed and added WUprop again but the message still says no tasks sent, any ideas?

If WUProp is the only active project, the workunit won't end until another project will be active.


No, my Androids are all running Universe at home. They've all moved on slightly to 99.966 now so I'll leave them running.

I have some WuProp test applications running for Android but they looked to have stopped at 99.857%
