    Aren't your profiles (at least the control layout) stored in your account? If so, you can just sign up on the new device and retrieve them.

    Hi,
    What are the requirements to install the Android app? I have a slimkat 4.4 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the playstore says it is not compatible.
    Thank you

    I've been trying to use my own profile created in the designer but my Android phone says no 16:9 profiles.

    I've tried creating both landscape and portrait profiles and nothing shows up on the phone.

    The phone is connected to Wifi and the login on the phone and designer is the same.

    Hi, the new version of the app work flawlessly with ps4 gamepad if I use joysticks to control sliders or buttons/triggers if I control buttons. Is there any option to control sliders with triggers, one for one direction, other for opposite, e.q. for throttle and reverse? On the other hand there might be some connection problem with my Sony Z5 compact, the device cannot find the Sbrick if the gamepad is connected via BT, with LG G5 SE works fine, both on Android 7.0.

    I just had to reinstall the Sbrick app after a clean reinstall of my phone. The app will not let me log in and see my profiles, though. It just says "there is a problem with your internet connection". I'm on LTE and have confirmed that internet access is working fine.

    The app does see the Sbricks. I also cannot use a public profile, as they don't load.

    Nevermind, forgot that you must be connected to Wifi, not LTE.

    Hello,

    I didn't use my Rolls Royce containing 2 SBricks for a few months, but I wanted to use it again. The batteries were empty, so I used the LEGO LiPo battery. For some reason, the SBricks don't connect to my phone and not to my brother's  phone. They are not even visible. It appears the bluetooth function is broken on both SBricks. The servo connected to one of the SBricks turned to vertical position when I turned the battery on, which means there is no power-based problem.

    Is there a known problem causing this?

    Dear Johan, 

    We did not experienced this kind of problem yet, but I will ask our developers about that. 

    Soon we will get back to you! 

    We ask for your patience, 

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the report. 

    Can you please send a screenshot or video about the startup problem? Especially about the html problem. Our e-mail: info@sbrick.com

    I'll upload a video about the gamepad setting soon.

    Ah, this version does show a version number higher than the beta I downloaded from the Play Store. :)

     

    However, I couldn't find in it any way to use a gamepad. Also, it kept crashing on startup, trying to download an HTML file, both offline and connected through mobile data; only with Wi-Fi it managed to download what it needed and doesn't need Internet again. Also also, the only way to exit the app is still to tap Android's Home button and then remove it form the recent apps list.

    This is great news! :)

    I'm signed up for the beta versions at the Play Store, and when I was about to install this new version via APK, my phone asked if I wanted to install an older (4.2.1) version than the current (4.2.3, beta) that I have. Is this supposed to occur?

    Hi!

    Yes, the problem occures only with one of the SBricks. Other one works just fine. 

    When I attach LEGO servo motor to Sbrick I can hear the sound of calibration witch mean that Sbrick is being powered. I don't know if this information helps. 

    Waiting for solution...

    Hi!

    I'm not sure if my problem is already listed in the forum but I need help.

    I have two Sbricks and I built a nice creation. Everything worked well untill one day. I turned both Sbricks on but one of them wasn't on the bluetooth connection list. Then I noticed that the green light on the Sbrick doesn't light up as well. I did restart my phone, changed batteries, used other cables, choosed different battery box etc. Nothing really helps.

    I have already wrote three times to the support - nobody answers for weeks by now. 

    Please help to get my Sbrick fixed!

    Thank you!

    Last week NVidia published the official update to Android 7 for the Shield K1, and now it works fine with my SBricks. :) So, it was a matter of incompatibility with Android 6; probably this affects other devices with this version.

    Dear Max, 

    The newest version is 18, so we ask you to update forward to the newest. :) 

    Then restart your device. We hope the problem will be solved.

    I suspect it's some bug related to the Android version: my Shield K1 also runs 6.0 and can't find the SBrick in the app, even though it finds it in the Bluetooth settings, while my Xperia Z1 Compact runs 5.0 and works fine. Is anyone with Android 6 on their devices who can connect to and use their SBricks?

    I'm expecting an update to 7.0 for the Shield, and I'll see if that fixes the issue.
