    Dear Max,

    What is the firmware version on your SBrick? Could you check it?

    Please check these steps, maybe it can help you forward.

    Which Android version do you have on your E5? My Z1 Compact has 5.1.1 and works well with my SBricks, while my Shield K1 tablet has 6.0.1 and can't find any SBricks in the app, despite seeing them in the Bluetooth settings.

    This leads me to suspect something broke between Android versions.

    Hi sbrick team and owners

     

    Last week end i had to change my phone. my old windows phone was broken and i finally choose a sony xperia E5 android.

    Now i tried again and again to make it work with my sbrick.

    No problem to couple it with the phone but no way to found it with the sbrick app...I tried  many times coupling uncoupling run the app but no result at all ...

    maybe If it's a firmaware problem but I can't update the sbrick firmware without the app and i don't know how to do to make it available for the app...Is someone has any advice or solutions ....[/blockquote]

     

    Good evening to Vengit, sbrick'owners...and every one who read this tread.

    I can't stand anymore !! I bought my Sbrick in june 2016 and honestly since then it works when it wants. The worst is now since 2 month it doesn't work anymore at all. (no connection beetween phone and sbrick, no connection between app and sbrick. Pseudo Solutions proposed by developement team doesn't change nothing more... 

    So if anyone from Vengit is able to solve the problem I don't see any alternative and my sbrick is now a stupid plastic box without any utility. Vengit says "2 years of guarantee to their product" that's a good point, the replacement means probability same events happens that's why i want a refund back instead of an hazardous replacement...

    I have to say that it's very sad, i'm very sad because possibility of the sbrick are fantastic but with so many times with this unfunctionnal device has reason for my patience.

    With the new version without the "Exit" button, to quit the application I have to press the system "Home" button and then remove the app from the running apps list. Here are three exit methods I've seen implemented in other apps; one of them could be used in future versions of the SBrick app:

    • Normal "Back" button, like the SBrick Simple Control app;
    • Press "Back" twice in a quick sucession (making a popup appear saying "Press Back again to exit") upon the first button press;
    • Hold down the "Back" button.

     

    Unfortunately, this new version still can't detect any SBricks when running on my Shield Tablet K1; on the Xperia Z1 Compact it still works.

    Yes, it has been removed. We have got some request both from apple and google about the remove of exit button because the mobil developer guidlines prohibit the exit button. This is the trend nowadays, the most popular applications don't have exit button.

    Just started new beta 4.2.2 and exit option has disappeared from the menu...

    Dear Andre,

    If you experienced any problem with our new (4.2.1 beta) app, then please go to your device's bluetooth settings menu, and unpair your device and your sbrick. If after the unapairing any bugs or issues still persists, please contact us again.

    Hello Francesco,

    the documentation had an error, the ADC channel numbering changed after version 14.

    The battery reading is on channel 8, the temperature is on 9.

    The full list of channels can be read in the updated documentation: https://social.sbrick.com/wiki/view/pageId/11/slug/the-sbrick-ble-protocol . See section "SBrick Data Records", record 06 "Voltage measurement".

    Thanks, I've opted-in for the beta test program. It should be especially interesting to me, as the previous beta version (whose APK link was published in this topic) works fine with my Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (Android 5.1.1), but my NVidia SHIELD Tablet K1 (Android 6.0.1) can't recognise that there's an SBrick connected.

    I imagined there was a new protocol! ;) Thanks!

    Well, actually is the same of before...the data returned is always 0.

    0F Query ADC
    0F < ADC channel ID, 00 or 0e >

    The ADC channels are read at every 2 seconds. These values are stored
    in variables, and this query simply reads those variables. Because of
    this, ADC data can be up to 2 seconds old.

    Temperature can be read on channel 0x0E, voltage on 0x00.

    Return:
    2 byte, little endian, 12 bit resolution ADC reading on given channel.
    Value is stored MSB. (Must be divided by 16)

    All ADC channels are using the internal 1.24V reference.

    The PSU voltage is dropped through a 10:1 voltage divider.
    VPSU = (ADC * 0.83875) / 2047.0

    Temperature can be calculated as: celsius = ADC / 118.85795 - 160
    Where 160 is an offset

    please refer the new SBrick protocol here: https://www.sbrick.com/sbrick_protocol_16.txt

    Pairing it and unpairing it made it working! :D So it was a cache problem I suppose.

     

    What about Temperature & Voltage?
