Ok, so I figured out why my old tablet wouldn't turn on...the cord I had it plugged into wasn't providing power (tried another & let it fully charge, now it powers up just fine)
I played with the app a little bit more tonight.
That issue fixed, I could do the 'test' I wanted to!
I tried running PYKL3, and it still loads and appears to run fine, but: radar for my default location shows an old image, and won't update.
If I try to select a different location it goes to that spot, and at the bottom it says "Map Download progress 100.0", but never loads the map/radar.
So I'm guessing that there is something it's looking for on the net that no longer exists.
The other thing I wanted to do was compare (attempted) connections between the 2 devices:
(can only see if a connection was attempted, and wheather or not that attempt was network blocked or allowed (all were allowed))
On the old Acer tablet, these connections I believe are all for PYKL3 (some are done more than once)
On the Samsung phone, its these connections.
So doesn't look like the phone is blocking any outgoing connections.
When loading on the phone, I also noticed, it blinks an error real quick about...
Invalid package name:
com.MyPYK.Radar.Full This error may
also indicate that you have not signed into
And if I long-press where the map/radar would be, I get this:
Program has thus far been unable
to download required supplemental
files. Please ensure network
connectivity exists before restarting.
So, I know as much as its trying to make outgoing connections, but wheather or not its actually connecting and finding the file(s) it needs, I can't say..
Oh, and I tested those sites it makes connections to, they all exist (but I can only see the server, not full URL on connection attempts)
www .pykl3radar.com (is ofcourse the PYKL3 website)
radar .weather.gov (NWS radar)
data .caprockweather.com (blank page that only says "CaprockWeather Data Server (Bratsk)")
tgftp .nws.noaa.gov (has multiple sub-directories some of which contain files)
pykl3radar .com (same as the 'www' version)
pykl3 .allisonhouse.com (asks for username & password . I've never had an account there, so don't know what's on it)
www .spotternetwork.org (is ofcourse the Spotter Network website)
Maybe some of that will be helpful to someone if trying to figure out the issue??
