I've been using BAM as my acct. manager for some time to manage my 3 PCs and 1 Smartphone. However, earlier this week I activated BOINC on my Android 5 tablet and began crunching SETI. This has been going well, and stats are showing in BOINCstats and other stat sites. BOINCstats shows I'm using 5 devices (including the new tablet). However, BAM still does not show the new tablet in my acct.

My phone has the BOINCstats/BAM link under Projects for synching, etc. However, the tablet only shows the projects themselves in the Projects tab. Therefore, how am I to add the tablet to my BAM acct.?

So happens, BOINCStats, the owner of the BAM program, not Berkeley, had suspended portions of the host updating due server problems. Visit their forum and note a latest reply by Willy to a query I had, which was that he anticipated to resume host updating soon again.

When you want to run Seti through the account manager, you'll have to enable it there and add all your devices to the account manager.

So if you added Seti separately, you'll have to set No New Tasks, run all work and report it, then remove the project, before using the Account Manager link at the bottom of the Projects list to add BAM! as your account manager. Or if you want to do it now, set No new tasks, abort all work in progress and in waiting, report that, then remove the project and add BAM! as the account manager.

Really, when you're in the projects list in the BOINC for Android app, the account manager option is the bottom option. The screen can be scrolled upwards.

Thank you so much. I didn't go "deep" enough into Projects screen (i.e. Add Project). Didn't think Acct. Manager would be considered a "project." :-)Tablet's been added to BAM and it automatically readded Seti.

Hopefully the BOINC FAQ & Wiki will be updated to address Android app in more detail.

I ran into problem when I got started with myself. Thanks for this great answer. It really helps.

I have the same thought. I checked the FAQ and Wiki. Unfortunately, there is no update for the recent changes.
