Crunching Einstein OK on my

Crunching Einstein OK on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and my Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9.

Good move by the BOINC team to get BOINC into the Amazon store !

My only real problem is that the "Used CPU cores" value, especially on the Note 4 core tablet, in Preferences is not always accurate or honored. This is a known problem that the BOINC team is working on.

You are welcome!
We had only limited opportunities to beta-test on Kindle HD, so feedback about this device is especially important to us.

Correct.

Completed my first Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) v1.06 (NEON) task, and its got validate error, same as every NEON task I did at Albert@home

Indeed we never found out what is so special about this phone that it gives nonsense results when using the NEON. I remember you wrote that this device had problems on other projects as well?

I have gone to the Google

I have gone to the Google Playstore but all I see is a bunch of BOINC want to be apps that don't seem to have anything to do with the actual BOINC work.

What is the name of the BOINC app for the ANDROID Smartphone? Did you download the app from Google Playstore?

Seti UNIVERSE.com all of the SETI disciplines in one place. Science Fiction, Poetry and articles by various writers, Space and SciFi Art can also be found here for that sometimes needed diversion from science.

Not a major issue, the app

Not a major issue, the app seems to work fine, but when I plug the phone in below the minimum battery setting, the "status" switches between "computing" and "waiting for battery to increase", resulting in a very slow charge. This is on an HTC One.

The problems were when running NativeBoinc, I think it's something to do with it's priority levels, using the official Boinc stability is much improved, (Running apps doesn't cause it to reboot)
I have had a few computational errors on both Albert and Asteroids, the error code on both is 'process exited with code 193 (0xc1, -63)',
note the Albert VFP app ran fine on all occasions, never errored, and always validated.

Running NativeBoinc on my Nexus 7 still, if I try and run 4 Wu's at once it would lockup or reboot often, setting it to only run on 3 cores it is perfectly stable:

The name is just "BOINC", Author is "Space Sciences Laboratory, U.C. Berkeley"

The app is blocked for some very few individual device models where we had received reports about consistent crashes or other serious problems, so there is a possibility that your particular device is not supported. Also Android 2.3 or higher is required.

Can this explain a lot of validating and computing errors (exit code 194 and 195 @ pogs)?
Anyway, after finishing the current wu's I will switch over to official BOINC and give that a try.

On older devices you may be able to download the file (from the BOINC ftp-site) but you get a parsing error when you try to install it.

Native Boinc works on my POV Mobii, but only a few apps find enough memory to run wu's.
If one likes to add older devices with small memory resources Milkyway and Asteroids may work.
