I have two computers, a tablet, and a phone running Seti@Home, and all show up except for my phone. The phone is hooked to my Seti@Home account, and has completed and submitted at least one or two work units.
I've tried deleting BOINC and reinstalling it, I've tried deleting my SETI@Home account off the phone and readding it, I've tried resetting it, updating it... Nothing makes it show up on the Seti@home website.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, I don't see a dedicated Android forum yet, and I just started using this on android so I'm guessing this is the right spot.

Thanks

Is it possible to find Computer ID / hostid in the interface of BOINC Manager for Android?

E.g. this one have hostid=7396761
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=7396761


If the interface of BOINC Manager have no way to show hostid - do you know where are the BOINC files on the phone?

If the file client_state.xml exists it will have a section for SETI@home with <hostid> for the phone

This is from my 'normal' (PC) computer (I don't have Android device):
<project>
<master_url>http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/</master_url>
<project_name>SETI@home</project_name>
<user_name>BilBg</user_name>
<team_name>HardwareBG SETI Team</team_name>
<host_venue>school</host_venue>
...
<user_total_credit>6141712.247087</user_total_credit>
<user_expavg_credit>5595.277729</user_expavg_credit>
<user_create_time>1180238970.000000</user_create_time>
<rpc_seqno>105733</rpc_seqno>
<hostid>4832843</hostid>


And the link is:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=4832843


If you found the hostid - post it here

Or put it at the end of this line to make a link to it:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=


P.S.
In BOINC Manager for 'normal' (PC) computer the Computer ID / hostid is very easy to find:
on Projects tab
- click on a project name
- click on [Properties] button
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Advanced_view#The_Projects_tab

You have 2 'normal' (PC) computers, try it on them just to see what/where to look on the phone:
