Good news everyone!

Our Android support is - after just 6 weeks - out of hiatus again! We are again supporting BOINC's current stable Android release (7.4.53) you can find on the Play Store.

Happy crunching!

Oliver

Thanks, it works!

Oddly enough, just a few hours earlier, I was able to try this:  https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/3873#issuecomment-654346572.  That will let you install the beta version of the BOINC 7.16.3 Android client with the updated certificates.  You do have to uninstall the old BOINC first, however.  This also works.

Want to find one of the largest known primes? Try PrimeGrid. Or help cure disease at WCG.

Thanks for the feedback.

And yes, 7.16.3 is meant to resolve the underlying root cause of the problem.

thank you for PMing - I don't

thank you for PMing - I don't get notifications for posts. Now is it better than last time? Last time, uploading was difficult and not really giving much credits? The reason is when I switched to another app, it gives much more points and is quick in uploading too.

Hi Brit, uploading hasn't

Hi Brit,

uploading hasn't been a general issue, so just give it another try. Credit is also just like it used to be and it matches our other tasks. Projects can assign credit as they please and we're not competing with those in that area - we're in for the science. Hope the science we do is what keeps you supporting us. We appreciate it!

Thanks,
Oliver

On the Crunching forum there

On the Crunching forum there is a new posting regarding the official current version of the BOINC android client now being. 17.18.1

Also remember that E@H only has one Android app. It is Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) (BRP4)

If you don't it selected in your Project preferences or you don't have the Allow non-preferred apps: setting set to Yes you won't get Android WU's
