The current stable BOINC Android app can't communicate with our project anymore. Our dedicated TLS certificate chain to support clients with ancient certificate authorities finally expired. Thus clients older than 7.10 (and using BOINC's own CA bundle) won't connect anymore. The CA bundle in 7.4 is more than six years old and our intermediate CA is eight (!) months younger than that bundle.

Einstein changed their certificate. BOINC 7.4.53 can now be used again to contact the project.
But beware, when you add the project there's a chance the first time contacting it will fail. Just tap on the "can't connect" field, fill in your password again and then it will go through.
