Description

It does not even open.

Tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
Intel Atom Z2560

Other users reported force close on Dell Venue 8 tablets (see forum)

I cannot supply logcat since I'm not rooted and aLogcat does not show anything wrong.

It only shows:

E/dalvikvm: The following issues were seen: issue: the trace provoked a spill
JIT_INFO: issues in trace Ljava/util/Arrays;fill, offset 7

Maybe you can look at this, Intel has some tips for developing for X86 chipsets with the help of libhoudini which translates ARM code to X86 if I correctly understood it:

  • Status changed from New to Accepted
  • Target version set to 5.2

I think the "only" thing missing is that all the native code needs to be compiled for x86 as well.

I can probably figure that out when running in an android emulator

There is no testing possible on Bluestacks 2 (popular Android emulator on Windows) since it crashes. I think for the same reason.

So it partially works on the Ami DuoS emulator on X86 - Windows 7. But very slow as there seems to be no video acceleration.

I really hope there will be an X86 supported APK.

This is 5.0.331 by the way running the Vimeo plugin.

#6 Updated by Rob Koni over 2 years ago

Seems that there is now a X86 build running on Android 4.0.3 and up

I will close the issue if confirmed working :)
