I'm not exactly sure where to post this as there is no Android section.

I have a spare Android box, and would like to dedicate it to SETI@home. I joined years ago as hal9000(Canada) but havent run the software in ages. I'd like to dedicate my box to the project. Is there a version of BOINC I can run on that box?

I'll run it on Windows if I have to but if there is a droid alt, I'd rather use that to run your software 24/7 with no interruptions.

There is a BOINC version for Android in the Google Play Store, presently 7.4.53 which does work here (As long as Android is 4-9 and for Android 8 and above the CPU and Android version are either both 32bit or 64bit. With a 64bit CPU and 32bit Android the applications here will crash continuously).

But since this project stops supplying work tomorrow, it's of no use to add this project as new to any new device.

Yes, all other projects under BOINC continue.
