I have a fire 7 tablet, running BOINC. Well, it can't run it for more than a day - because when opening the app, it only shows the logo - for hours. I've tested - the only fix has been reinstalling the app... which harms the projects I'm crunching. I don't know how to fix it - I've played with every setting configuration, running less cores, etc - but nothing stops this from occurring.

Have you tried Force Stopping the app, instead of reinstalling ?

How many cores do you have allowed to run on BOINC, try restricting to 50%

How much RAM and storage is available ? You probably need to leave at least 2 GB storage free for temporary files

Try suspending BOINC if you are watching videos or playing games

Some projects, particularly Rosetta are very resourse hungry, try a few different ones

It has over 5 GB storage available to BOINC, 11 GB overall free - with 1 GB RAM and a 1.30Ghz processor. Ironically I have an old android phone with the same processor, and less storage available running all 4 cores 100% of the time - and it's not ran into a single problem yet.
I've tried various combinations of WCG, Rosetta and Ralph@Home, Universe@home - it can complete tasks but this "glitch" doesn't appear to be project related.

I've attempted to force stop 3 times. I'll try again for the sake of trying ;p
