Although boinc manager had been working fine on my Android 9 phone, for the past 5 days or so it does no work and simply shows tasks as waiting for download.

Phone battery is fully charged and phone is connected to the charger.

Logs say:
Tue Jun 09 20:11:37 GMT+02:00 2020||Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.
Tue Jun 09 20:11:36 GMT+02:00 2020||Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site


I have tired shutting down, killing the tasks and so on, but nothing seems to help.

Any thoughts would be great!

Thanks!

Which version of BOINC on Android are you using?

Hi!

Thanks for the reply.

I'm using version 7.4.53.

I removed and reinstalled but now it cannot load the rosetta@home project.

That version (the same one currently on Google Play Store) seems affected by the recent security certificate issues. There are several threads of conversations here in the message boards affecting folks across most platforms. Some have resolved, but that particular version for Android is, by all accounts, currently not resolved.

Among a number of devices, I too am using an Android 9 phone. I've added info over in Github and devs are on the case to a fix, but from my understanding that work is going towards stablisation of more recent versions than v7.4.53.

Some have suggested using those more recent versions, but there is obvious hestitation among some users to download a non Play Store apk, or perhaps even because of BOINC flagging newer versions as potentially unstable, DEV, or even "broken". Nobody of course wishes for any valuable WU data to be corrupted by such instabilities. This decision is one of trusting the devs outside of the Play Store environment and of a highly individual scope and user scenarios. I can appreciate both sides of the argument. Not rushing decisions regarding security are surely a healthy thing?

If you wish to remain using the the offical Play Store version you will have to exercise a little patience until devs fully resolve the matter.

I would additionally contribute that I am now experimenting with v7.16.3 on an LG G6 (LG-H870). Unlike the version you currently have, it is attaching to Rosetta, has downloaded tasks, and is currently crunching away with WU's defined by my prefs adjustments to the default:

    Deselected "Pause computation when screen is on"
    "Power sources for computation" Selected "Battery"
    "Used CPU cores" selected "3" (The device has 4)
    "Pause CPU usage above" selected "70%"
    "RAM limit" selected "60%"



Time will tell how the upload goes, but at least one user on earlier Android versions report it's all OK.

A month later, no change. I can no longer contribute on my android phone.

What a shame!
