Message 73825 - Posted: 6 Nov 2016, 15:24:41 UTC

Hello,

I download BOINC version 7.4.53 on my tablet. When I start the BOINC apps, and I launch it, I see the first page (with the logo BOINC in the middle).

But I cannot do anything. The page is frozen... Can somebody help me to fix it ? Thank you

Config of my tablet :
Asus : ASUS ZenPad 10 / P023 / Z300C
Android : 5.0.2
Intel® Atom™ x3-C3200 Quad-Core, 64bit
Memory : 2GB

Use 7.4.43 instead. The bug is known, but development of the Android version of BOINC is at a standstill, so I wouldn't expect a new version any time soon.

No, as far as I know that's not normal.

I have however just downloaded and installed it on my device and I have several more projects to choose from. So I don't know what that's about.

only Collars


Seems to be a separate issue; should at least also have SETI in the attach-to list, unless you've already attached...

One of my tablets lists a lot of projects with no android work. You can attach projects via their URL. Most have them listed on their home page.

Thank you Mmonnin,

Where do you find the exact URL of all the projects ? Have you a list of URL ? After adding the URL, can you log on ?

Thanks !

Thanks !

When you visit the URL of a project that is generally the URL used for the BOINC client.
Such as http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ or http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/

Hello,

Good news :
--> thanks to Mmonnin after adding : http://http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org, I can acces (login +pw) to the application in Boinc.
--> but once the data are downloaded, and before to start performing computation, I read the message "_("This project doesn't support computers of type") x86-android-linux-gnu" as following in yellow



Zoom :


The computation doesn't work. It looks it is a new problem... Where can this issue come from (Boinc, World Community grid, Asus...?) ? Thanks.

Don't know how that bolded piece could ever work, but if it does for you, great.
There is no issue... x86 Android is NOT supported by WCG. as the message indicates, only Android on ARM is.
