This is my first post.
First, I am blown away by this platform. I feel grateful that DJ Sures had the vision to make this available and create some commercial products around it. I have EE background but am just an enthusiastic beginner here and have a lot of study ahead to begin to even scratch the surface of ARC scripting. Also, I have been browsing and I am extremely impressed by the knowledge and generosity of the participants on this forum. I know I've landed in the right place. A unique place, in terms of this platform and the community around it.
Getting to the point - I first purchased a Roli and have since purchased a Six and a developer's kit. Everyone is up and running, talking to the PC via my network.
I was able to get the Android application running great initially with the Roli ~1.5 weeks ago (in that case I recall the phone is directly connected to the Roli in AP mode).
Then I did a big update on my phone: Verizon Galaxy S5, now at Android version 5, Baseband version G900VVRU2B0E1 (this is actually a second update that I suspect fixes important bugs in the first version 5 update).
Now, when I attempt to download and install robot apps from the public cloud (like Roli and Six), the app downloads, saves, syncs servo profiles, then stops: "Unfortunately, ARC has stopped."
The same error occurs if I try to Open an installed robot app.
I tried clearing application cache, data, and then finally uninstalling and reinstalling ARC mobile. Same problem.
Has anyone seen this and might it just be an app compat issue with the latest Android?
Thanks for any ideas. Meanwhile I have plenty to keep me busy.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!
Congrats on this great platform! The possibilities are blowing my mind.
I have to make a decision - apparently google dropped backward compatibility between Android 5 and the currently supported 4.0.3
This is obviously a move from Google to encourage older devices to upgrade.
I also did one or two crash reports, FWIW.
I have an older Samsung tablet: SCH-i705 running Android 4.1.2. I'm only using it as a Sonos controller these days.
I tried ARC with the Roli, JD, and Six apps. It exhibits the exact same behavior as my S5, that is, JD does not crash but Roli and Six do.
