I've been doing SETI with BOINC on a Windows laptop for a few weeks now. Was hoping to do move over to using my Android tablet instead, but Android BOINC doesn't list SETI as an available project.

I've read that SETI isn't being done anymore, but it is still working on my Windows desktop BOINC.

Why is it available on Windows desktop BOINC, but not on Android?

Thank you.

Your BOINC on Windows has Seti already added but it won't be in the list of available projects anymore. So if you were to remove the project and want to add it again it will be missing from the list of available projects as well due to it being in hibernation.

Only active projects are on the list of the add project wizard.
