Android 12 - Roon Forum app no longer working

My phone updated to Android 12 today. Since the update the forum app no longer works. It opens, and stays on a blank screen. No text whatsoever. I deleted and reinstalled, rebooted, and did a shutdown/start.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Vincent I updated to Android 12 Beta on my OnePlus 9 pro, but I do not use the community app.

From my understanding it’s just a wrapper for chrome webapp. Just try Chrome directly.

Sorry if you already know this

From a browser it works just fine. It’s the “applet” that stopped.


Have you tried clearing the cache and storage.
I deleted my install a long time ago and just have it pinned to Chrome.

Other option is too uninstall Roon and see if it works after reinstalling it.

Thanks for all that advice. I did do all the above. It’s odd. I may reinstall chrome.

Well out of interest I had a lot of issues with Chrome after the upgrade, though they seem to have gone away again now. Good luck and hopefully that sorts it for you

Never used the forum app, did not even know there was one…lol.
Always have it bookmarked in my browser which on Android phone is duck-duck go.
Strange name yes but no ads or pop ups ever!!


Chrome allows you to save it out as its own app these days from confluence forums. I have done this for Roon forum and a few others that use Confluence. That said I just updated my Pixel 4 to 12 today and its all working ok.

Simon I misread that as you updated it to an iPhone 12.
Are you tempted by the the Pixel 6, with the trade in offers?

Lol, no not at all. I don’t see the need to keep updating my phone and only had this just over a year and only got it due to a good deal not a Pixel fan from using this one. Likely go back to OnePlus if the prices are right. I just don’t see the point in spending a lot on a phone or see the need for them to constantly increase in power, it just means less battery life in my experience. I just use it for internet , forums and control apps. This does not need a flagship phone really.


It’s odd that I can’t get either Roon or PS Audio to work any longer with Chrome. Since I have the applets working with Vivaldi I mostly likely am not going to continue to persue the Chrome issue.

Vincent I wonder if something strange happened on your update.

I hate to recommend a factory reset, but going back a few year’s it was a pretty common need after an OS upgrade

These days besides for cameras I don’t think a flagship is required. I am using a OnePlus 9 Pro now but I did a couple of days work for someone to earn it. Otherwise I would have been happy with my 8 for a couple more years.

I think the Nord 2 range and the Pixel 4a or 5a are also excellent and clean mid range phones at a third of the price

The pain of a reset is what I am trying to avoid. I assume that after some future Chrome or OS updates whatever bit is stuck will shake loose. I get that whatever I am experiencing could be the tip of the iceberg, but it doesn’t feel that way right now.

In the meantime I am going to listen to some music. I can hear my Sopra 2’s calling out to me to play with them.

I understand that and avoid it myself as well.
Enjoy the music :+1:
