Warning about Android 7 Nougat
« on: June 19, 2017, 12:46:39 AM »

My Galaxy Tab S2 10.1" worked well until last week when I was prompted to download and install Android 7 Nougat. The first two problems I noted were that it refused to fast charge and the battery life had diminished. Charging now takes about 16 hours and it appears to be using up the power about twice as fast. An internet search has highlighted this and flagged up a whole host of issues with other devices.
Yesterday I went to use the DJI Go App with my P3 Pro and the tablet stubbornly refuses to connect with the controller. I can still fly the P3 but there is no telemetry and no picture. Rebooting and reinstallation of the app makes no difference.
I can live with the charging and battery use problems until a bug fix comes along but aerial photography without a picture is no good.
Sensible suggestions please.

Can't you roll back to a previous state, some kind of recovery mode?

No recovery mode but it seems I can reflash to an earlier generation of Android. In the case of Samsung devices I also have to use their Odin programme. Both compressed files are now downloaded and I intend to attempt this tonight. If it works, great. If not, think carefully before you download and install Nougat. Another internet trawl shows that others have experienced exactly the same problem.

You'd think that type of issue would be caught before release during QA, many people wouldn't have a clue how to put it back rendering their devices next to useless.

To add to the charging, battery use and DJI Go app issues the tablet will not connect to the PC in order to reflash with Android 6. Rapid hair loss is now taking place. I may have to seek professional help.
Bloody Nougat!
