ROCK - latest software build.

Description Of Issue
The Android device used to work fine as a remote, last week it wouldn’t open. The problem seemed to go away but now it has returned.

Roon tries to open but just shuts down, I have re-installed the software several times.

Details of the tablet would help.

You have a massive problem with Android tablets. When is this fix coming?
Dylan has documented that you are working on it. Been several days now.

I’m a user like yourself. Difficult to fix the unknown though.

Hi Ged

Agree some more info might be useful

it’s a Samsung Galaxy A

Android version 8.1.0

I knew there had been a problem but I thought it had been fixed

Sorry ged…In my haste to identify a scapegoat, I mistakenly took you for a Roon rep. Apologies!
