I tried building for Android on 9.0 dp 11 yesterday and got some weird font
Pixel arrived (wow! iOS, seems a bit primitive now…) used, unlocked, (looks
brand new) no sim… I got wi-fi. immediate prompted me to upgrade to 8.1, which
in LC 8.1.9 I can't see it in the test menu, no matter what I do, reboot,
restart LC, with phone plugged, unplugged.
But I got a neat droid transfer app for Mac… go to connected devices, switch
USB to transfers (I guess you do that already with Drop Box..) So I can turn
the phone into a "volume" that appears inside the app like a finder window…
and copy the apk from my LC builds folder into Downloads on the phone and then
So, that's working…
Sadly the rendering fixes in 8.1.9 are not resolving all issues we had before…
sure, we can now leave the app via Home or App switcher, and come back without
the app stopping, but switching between stacks which require accelerated
rendering is still full of bugs…all works perfectly on iOS (sigh) so back to

Is anyone else here running Android 8.1/Oreo? My test app is hanging the
package installer right near the end of the process. This happens both
when running Test in the IDE (requiring a force-quit) and also if I
build a standalone and move it via Dropbox. Installing from Dropbox, the
progress bar goes about 9/10 of the way, and everything freezes. Only
the Home button gets me out. The app is not shown in the app drawer.
If I try to install again, I'm asked if I want to update the current app
(which didn't really install) and the install completes. I can open and
run the app. When I go back to Dropbox, the frozen installer window from
the first try is still there. I have to go to settings and force quit
the package installer to get rid of it.
I can't tell if there is something about the LC build itself or a bug in
Oreo. The same apk installs fine on my Samsung running 6.0.1. Play Store
apps install okay too.
Nothing on Google about it.
