While admittedly the "download third party" method is insecure, I would imagine setting a requirement of "Have a popup to approve third party download" would be a way to have 'informed consent' for apps that 'need' it, like BOINC. (That would add an extra step that could break, I know.)

EDIT: Fixed typos.

Currently, it's Universe, or one of the Einstein sub-projects.

WCG will be back in about a month or two aver their server migration. Rosetta is iffy for anyone that won't/can't do the Python tasks....

YoYo and Moo arent for newer Androids....

Caught a fleeting glimpse of the 'will resume when battery is' "issue"; this was right after playing a particular game on my Android phone (Shop Titans). As an incidental, S.T appears to be a memory hog somehow, despise reporting using "273 MB average over past 3 hours"; I'd does still cause BOINC to pause. (The whole thing including cache data takes 750+ MB, and is consistent enough on pausing BOINC (or at least dropping it out of memory)- even when running no tasks, just the client- that I know to do one or the other, but not both.

First noticed "issue":
Occasionally, when adding a project- at the project login, it will flash white and not move (automatically) to the next step. Most of the time when this happens I would need to exit back to the main client, then try to log in again; it does work the second time. (This also happened with 7.18.0)

This is on two different LG Stylo 5's, Android 9.

After fiddling (and this is on something without mobile data):
It can download tasks, but if I uncheck the 'wifi only' option; then it'll (also) do it through the Bluetooth tethering.

(And I'm using the tethering to give a bit more control over who's specifically connected at any one time without having to change Hotspot passwords every so often to force disconnect anyone I don't want on at that particular point.)

So finally tried something today (because I finally figured out a particular setting today):

Two Android devices, one with data internet, the other can tether to it through hotspot/WiFi.

I figures out today how to tether the internet connection through Bluetooth (it's slower, but it's workable for things like Opera/Chrome and some YouTube). But... Boinc 7.18 can reserve new tasks, or connect to projects, but won't actually download the task files, through hotspot/Bluetooth.

For my devices, the one that got the Data collect version 5 v5.03 (android_arm_non_pie) tasks, they all crashed.
All later received Data collect version 5 v5.07 (android_arm_pie) run fine across the board. On everything Android 7, 8.1, 9 and 10.


I suspect you already figured it out, but the "_pie" is Android KitKat and above; "_no_pie" is KitKat and below (With KK being an in-between system that can do both, designed that way).

(I wondered when I saw it on Seti, and Wikipedia-ed it once....)

Rosetta told me I needed another 2.9GB of disk space.


Rosetta needs 6675.72 MB RAM: is the restriction really needed?

I'm assuming it was one of those WU's that was coded to ask for a large amount of disk space; general consensus is they don't actually need more than 1.5 GB (and sometimes as low as ~400 MB), but they're set to expect needing ~8.5 GB.

It's a Rosetta thing.

Post:
Have Rosetta and WCG as your two (attached) projects, and set Boinc to use [#] CPU's. Eventually, Boinc will have the tasks balanced between both projects, to run at the same time. (Personally, I would let it take ~2 days, depending on how long your phone is on, and what you've set for the Rosetta runtimes.)

[...]do the two project get split over all four "available" cores? [...]Or is BOINC set to run one task per core only?


Wordy Reply:

Under big.LITTLE, BOINC "sees" all cores, but is set to use the LITTLE cores only, regardless of how many tasks you have downloaded - in this case, it wouldn't matter if they're all from one project or 8 different projects. So, when you set the '# of cores' slider, it starts with 1 task per core until all LITTLE cores are running (so if you set '3', it will only run 3 tasks on 3 cores, even if you have 18 tasks for example).
When you start going above 50% of your cores (#'s 5-8, in this case), each LITTLE core will start switching between 2 task, and each task will receive 50% of the CPU cycles... but each task's "Wall clock" run time keeps running as if it were getting 100% (so the net "wall clock" time is 2x, for the same amount of net 'cpu time's).

I came to check on things... Since I "forgot" that, yes, it's Tuesday. (And it's ~5:18 local, so it's longer than it used to be the last time I was a regular - last year.)

I seem to be unable to find the setting that keeps BOINC up in the notification bar.

This is on a Sprint LG Stylo 5, and I know that I haven't set the phone's "App Notifications" to Off for Boinc.
