It says that if you have more than one project running at once. Pause everything else to verify.

I downloaded but it says it is suspended because your device is busy with other apps. Not running anything other than what I usually have running.

That message means something else is using your CPU. It could be a background process (like checking for updates). The message should go away after a while.

Hmmm.. when searching the Google Play Store just a few seconds ago I see:

BOINC
BOINC Echo
AndroBOINC
NativeBOINC

Do you have to update Play?

AndroBOINC isn't the official BOINC client. BOINC is. I suppose it might still work, but don't report any bugs from AndroBOINC here.

I will be happy to try the Android version on a tablet...but...

I need a direct link to an .apk installer. No, I cannot use Google Play. Google Play, in keeping with their policy of moronicism will not let me have it. This is not surprising, about 1/4 of the apps running on my tablet are 'incompatible" with my tablet according to Google.

No, I do not need help with Google Play. I let them wallow in their stupidity and call it good. I just need a direct link to download the .apk from the web and it's all good.

If anyone is Android geek enough to extract the .apk from their device and will email it to me, we can do it that way, too. I'll check back.

boinc_7.2.17_arm-android-linux-gnu.apk is the latest officially available beta.

Why would I want to test the beta project if my main account won't get the credit for the work I process, can this be fixed?

It's at a different project, so no it can't be fixed, Join Seti Beta is you want to help the Android Arm testing effect, if you don't want to help, don't join, once the apps are reliable they'll be released on the Main project, but that could be months away.

You're not testing the beta project - you're participating in testing an application that has the potential to help everyone once it is released to the public.

Why should the credits go to your main account when you're not actually producing work? The objective is to test an application, not to process work and receive credit for it.

It isn't broke, so there's no need to fix it.

Did you create an account on SETI Beta? Your main SETI account won't work.

Eric,

some months ago I used another android boinc app, and I ran CPU tasks for SETI. I even have 215 validated credits from that time, on my ARMV7 processor. It's shown on my host devices. Why won't SETI (not the BETA) send any armv7 tasks in this new boinc app? I mean, I have validated work units so that should be working as fine as a normal computer.

I'm not Eric but...

SETI doesn't have an official Android app, which means that whomever released that SETI app for your ARM processor, likely was using what's known as the "Anonymous Platform" mechanism built into BOINC to allow third-parties to write applications for open source science projects like SETI@Home. Likely, this third party never updated their app for SETI@home v7 - which is distinctly different than your ARMv7 processor (one doesn't have anything to do with the other).

You'll need to find out from whomever supplied the BOINC package and SETI app if they have released a newer version.

That was under SETI V6, but we are now using V7 which is why beta testing is required.

Cheers.

Hey folks

I actually searched and found that app again. Its name is Native Boinc, developed by some guy from Poland. It acessed SETI normally, and I'm currently computing two tasks for SETI v7. One of them is 29au09ac.26631.23385.10.12.26_0

In case you wanna check it:


If these WU gets validated, then my question is why we need a BETA for seti tasks for arm. Unless it's the Official Boinc client being tested there.

PS: that app allows me to run any of the BOINC projects, not only SETI.
