rSAP on Nexus 5
Friday, 08 November 2013 12:01

Starting with installer version 2.4.3 the Nexus 5 is supported by my app. As always the phone must be rooted before running the installer app, the rSAP app itself does not necessarily need root access. If you want further information read here.

The Nexus 5 uses the same generic Qualcomm system files as the HTC One, Sony Xperia, ..., so itĀ supports full access to the SIM card, not the restricted GSM-only access like the Nexus 4. That means it should support 3G data connection in those cars which offer internet access.

Android 4.4 did not need any further fixes in my app. Let's hope it stays that way for future Android versionsĀ Smile

 
Version 2.4.1 available
Friday, 18 October 2013 11:27

Today I released version 2.4.1, a quick bugfix for 2.4 which did no longer work on HTC phones after you switch off/on Bluetooth.

The basic change in version 2.4 is the better support for Android 4.3.

First, the app itself should be able to run without root rights on Android 4.3 (the installer app still needs root!). This is important because Android 4.3 made it harder for 'setuid' tools, like the 'su' tool itself. All known 4.3 versions so far now work without root.

The second change affects the Bluetooth compatibility problem of Android 4.2/4.3 (see here). It looks like Google, Samsung and HTC start using a very similar Bluetooth stack. I managed to replace the patched bluetooth.default.so with a hook to the original file, which does the necessary changes without replacing the original file. As a side effect I could also switch off the Samsung rSAP implementation, so my app now works with Samsung phones with 4.2/4.3. The hook library depends heavily on internal structures of the Bluetooth driver, I hope they will not differ in the future.

One more thing: it's always a good idea to have the latest version of the system files and the latest version of the app. But it should also be possible to mix different versions, say older system files and newer app, I try my best to keep all app versions compatible with all system files versions.

So now I'm waiting for Android 4.4 and the Google Nexus 5. Let's see what will happen...

 
Issues with Android 4.3
Friday, 20 September 2013 16:14

There will be updates to Android 4.3 for the Galaxy S3 and the HTC One soon.

A leaked 4.2 firmware for the Galaxy S3 version was very similar to the S4 firmware, i.e. my app will not run on it.

On the HTC One my app has problems with the 4.3 Bluetooth stack, i.e. my app will not work with Audi, Mercedes, ... car phones. Please check the Bluetooth issues for more information.

The problems also affect custom ROMs that are based on the leaked firmwares. I hope I can solve both issues until the updates are officially rolled out.

 
Trial Version for Bluetooth Phonebok App
Friday, 20 September 2013 16:01

Today I released a trial version for the Bluetooth phonebook app. This gives you the opportunity to thoroughly test the app with your configuration before buying the pay version. The trial app randomly changes a digit in each phone number.

This should also end the confusion with the old IrMC test app which was completely different than the phonebook app.
