Its that time again where a BOINC update for android has left the server feeling a bit confused. The server thinks that this host has a intel GPU. But it doesn't, it has 8 ARM CPUs and 1 Mali GPU.....
Host 8000095

Message 70721 - Posted: 6 Jul 2016, 7:08:04 UTC - in response to Message 70720.  

Starting BOINC client version 7.4.51 for aarch64-android-linux-gnuS

Is it? (One of Denzel's movies ends with "nah!")

And this

"No usable GPUs found"

I've -always- seen in the startup log of the client on Nexus 7 Android, ARMv7.

It's odd that first it's said to have no GPU, then tells there are Intel GPU tasks available, but maybe a Mali GPU is Intel compatible?

The Tasks for Intel GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them message is just that, you've not set in your Seti@Home project preferences to use the Intel GPU. When that's not checked and the server has no work available for the device you are asking work for, it can happen that you get these messages.

E.g., I had them like this:
[SETI@home] Requesting new tasks for AMD/ATI GPU
[SETI@home] [sched_op] CPU work request: 0.00 seconds; 0.00 devices
[SETI@home] [sched_op] AMD/ATI GPU work request: 1677.97 seconds; 0.00 devices
[SETI@home] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
[SETI@home] [sched_op] Server version 707
[SETI@home] No tasks sent
[SETI@home] No tasks are available for AstroPulse v7
[SETI@home] Tasks for CPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them
[SETI@home] Tasks for NVIDIA GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them
[SETI@home] Tasks for Intel GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them
[SETI@home] Project requested delay of 303 seconds

My project preferences at Seti@Home have only got "Use ATI GPU" checked, not any of the other GPUs or CPU.
As far as I know, you can overcome the message by checking all, even if you do not have the hardware. This seems to be a quirk unique to the Seti server.

You also have the missing CPU type problem in 7.4.51 when checking the hostID on the server, and it would be best for you to upgrade to 7.4.53 to see if that's fixed on your system as well.
