    Got 2 Sbricks today and tested with 2 Android devices (both on 5.1.1)

    - Nexus 4 -> Doesn't work. App says it's connected but nothing happens when I turn a slider or something.

    - Nvidia Shield K1 -> Works without any problems. Don't even have to pair the SBrick ;-)

    [/blockquote]

    Hi,

    Which firmware version do you have? The newest is 4.8. If you have an older version you have to update it. 

    After updating you have to restart your phone. Everytime you update you should restart it. 
    If it doesen't work, please download the SBrick simple control application, (It is available on google play), and try the brick with that. 
     
    If you tried all of these, and nothing could solved the problem, please write us again. 

    Regards,

    my prob is the app cant see th sbrick at all only the simple controller app works to update the firmware other than that its not working..

    [/blockquote]

     

    Did you try to pair the SBrick first?

    - Reset all bluettoth services, apss, etc...

    - Deactivate and reactivate the Bluetooth

    - Check if the phone sees the SBrick and pair it

    - Go in the app and check if it sees the SBrick

    [/blockquote]

     

    I tried all that also the phone would pair with the sbrick but disconnects immediately.

    I have observed similar situations after receiving my new Sbrick (replacing the older faulty one).

    - I have a Sony Xperia (Lollipop) and an older Galaxy Note (Kit-Kat)

    - Both could see the SBrick, but the Sony couldn't connect nor update the firmware

    - I managed to update the firmware with the Simple Controller App on the Galaxy Note

    - I had to pair the SBrick on the the Xperia before it could work with app v2.0

    - Everything went fine after that, I can even connect to both SBrick at the same time or one by one (the app v2 is great for that)

    All in all, it works perfecly, only the firmware update was a bit difficult (yet possible).

    Hi, 

    We check out what could be wrong.
    On most of the android phones the application works fine, but there are some device on which for some reason it doesen't.
    We are working on solving this problem. 

    We should ask for your patience,

    Yesterday I updated my SBrick app and now it does not function good anymore!!!!

    App version v2.0.2

    Firmware version 8

    Hardware version 4

    Android 5.1.1

    Samsung neo 5

    Sometimes I have to start a profile I few times before the SBrick responds although it is connected! And then it works but when I want to use a profile white more than 1 SBrick only 1 works and I can see that it is connected with the other ones  but they do not respond.

    When I test the bricks they work perfectly, but when I open a profile then I get the problem as mentioned.

    My conclusion is there is nothing wrong with my phone or SBricks  but there is something wrong within the app.

    What to do to solve the problem?????????

    I already tried a lot to solve it, I tried all the suggestions mentioned here on this forum but they do not work!

    from the 1.6.1 ap i saw that the hardwere is the 4.3 and the softwere the 4.3, it works but not really good (the profile joystick look a little bit oval and button output values seems not to work) but when i download the newer app and i click on "sbricks" it does not show mine also if it is paired and works with the older one before (i have disistalled it). now i'm trying with my ipod 5th gen

     

     

    EDIT with the 3.13 build 509 app on my ipod all works great, i think the problem is in the in-app pairing method of the android version

    [/blockquote]

     

    Hi, 

    We don't support 1.6 anymore. We try to develop 2.0.2 further. 

    Those who cannot use it by now, we should ask for patience, soon we will fix it. 

    Till that time you can use 1.6.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for your patience. The new (2.0.2.) android application available on google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vengit.sbrick&hl=en

    [/blockquote]

    Today I have to congratulate Vengit Team for the new version. I have quickly test it and now I will be able to control my train, a crossing and a switch.

    For the train I use a slider (auto reset yes) and a button (auto reset yes and output 0) and it works perfectly the slider control the motor and the button stops the motor (the slider also goes to the middle position :-)

    For the crossing or swith I use to button (auto reset yes, using the same channel but with the output set to 1 for the first one and -1 for the second) and this is also working the motor turn clockwise with one button and in the opposit direction with the other.

    Edit : I just have a little problem. I have set up the slider to control 2 motors in opposit direction (I have 2 88002 on the same train base 6x28) and most of the time the motors does not start at the same time and a few time one turns but not the other :-(

    Edit2 : I made a new profile with 11 buttons all with auto reset no and output set from 0 to 1 with a .1 step the problem only occurs with .4 (mimum value to start a motor) there is no problem when using .5 and more I this this can be a motor issue

    But when I use the buttons the 2 motors starts at time but I still have the problem when I use the slider

    Once again thank you for this release

    [/blockquote]

     

    Hello!

    There is a "+" sign, where you can set the ports. There you can add more ports to one slider. 

    I hope, I could helped to you.

    Congratulations, guys : we can say today that you made it :)

    v2.0.2 has corrected the last flaws of the previous release and, at least for my usage, everything is OK now.

    - The push button with values assignment and auto-reset works now, I needed that to change gear easily for cars with a gear box

    - Limiting the steering span works, a mandatory feature for high-speed racers

    - Most of all, updating a profile in the app can be done in real time, the reload button is terrific! Compared to the nightmare it was one year ago, it's night and day.

    I must check now if this release works on my tablet too (v2.0.1 did not), but this app is perfect on my Xperia M4.

    It was long for sure, but it was worth waiting :)

    Edit: the app crashes on my tablet...

    Hello, 

    In Profile Designer, you have to set the same Chanel name to the 2 buttons, then you can control with it the same function.

    I must check now if this release works on my tablet too (v2.0.1 did not), but this app is perfect on my Xperia M4.

    It was long for sure, but it was worth waiting :)

    Edit: the app crashes on my tablet...
