WCG has temporarily halted WUs, and I'm looking for more projects to run on my Android 10/11 phone.
With WGC down,
- Einstein not giving out ARM WUs (at least on this version),
- and Rosetta stopped it, due to high CPU temperatures on mobile devices,
- Moo Wrapper! doesn't seem to recognize my account on android 10/11,
- PrimeGrid stopped supplying WUs for android systems a while ago,
- Project Asteroids seems to be down still
- Universe was up again recently, but for Android 10/11, I still can't log into my account.
- Yoyo recently restarted after an outage, but apparently not for Android 10/11.

Any other projects that support Android 10/11/12 phones ?

Einstein > message has been sent to project admin asking for someone to fix the Android task issue.

Universe > should be sending tasks for all versions of Android. Try again.

Asteroids ... 6 months and some change without a server.... Don't hold your breath waiting for it's return. Consider it RETIRED until further notice.

Yoyo & Moo Wrapper > only supports 32-bit Android OS... Usually Android V8 or less but also Depends on phone chipset.

PrimeGrid > been many, many years since there was a app and it was flawed 3rd party app.

I got a task that is currently running under Android 10 from Rosetta yesterday.

And it's working again now.

Ok, I may have found an issue on my end.
Boinc isn't installed from Google Play, so it doesn't automatically update.
I'm still running version 7.4.53, while there's a much newer version out (7.18.1).
I installed the update, and reloaded the projects.

It seems like most of my project account login issues had to do with using the too old version of Boinc.

Universe@home is the first one to send me WUs.
On the old client, Einstein did send WUs, but they would be aborted, or processed for like 1% or less before erroring out.
I'll update if I see anything more.

OK, yoyo, Einstein, and moo and universe all seem to want to send me tasks,
While one phone is working, the other, I get a message saying "transfers suspended".
Playing around with the settings and it works now. Overlay? Or perhaps force stopping and starting it again did it.
Moo! And Yoyo give me computation errors.
LHC seems to never have any WUs.
Einstein still hasn't sent a WU.
Rosetta is still running the cpu very hot. It's not recommended to run more than 2 WUs per 4 cores, and I haven't yet found a way to adjust max wu per project on android.
If I adjust the setting in the website, it'll also affect the setting in my desktop versions.

Universe is about the only thing that still runs properly on Android 10/11 right now (will see how Einstein does).

As stated before, these require a 32bit Android, which if run on a 64bit CPU requires 32bit compatibility libraries, something you cannot install under Android (unless you root the device and put your own ROM on it and figure out which libraries you require).
Rosetta is still running the cpu very hot.
Use a fan to blow over the surface of the phone, it really helps. I've run Rosetta for quite a while on 4 Android devices without any problems. I had a 240mm fan blow over the glass surface of all devices.

A piece of advise,
If you run WUs on your smartphone normally (without a fan), it's probably better to lower the temperature to 38C.
Mine throttled at 39.5C and after 1,5 years, the battery expanded all within a few hours!

It's now April, well past the time when Asteroids was supposed to be fixed.

We got nada, Zip. Zero.

You think the project is dead and gone?

I don't have Virtual Box, but I get a Rosetta task now and then.

Milky Way is doing OK and Universe is going bonkers.

WCG is supposed to come back this month.

However getting close to when WCG is due to return?

I would say Asteroids is gone.
No response to several emails sent to Project Admin and University that has hosted project.

You can change the number of cores BOINC is allowed to use on your phone. In the app's preferences you might have to turn on "advanced" preferences, then you should see an option which you can use to reduce the number of cores that BOINC uses - and therefore the number of tasks it runs at once.
