SITE UPGRADE WARNING

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I was speaking about my Tapatalk app. When I first pulled it up, the Market sub-forum was in the middle, I had to scroll way down to see it. When I refreshed the page (pull down when you are at the top) they returned to the top of the page.

I was able to get them to appear now. Only thing different was clear the cache in the Tapatalk settings. Sweet!

Spoke too soon. Leaving the app for a period of time make them disappear again.

BUT re-clearing the cache brings them back.

Did you try scrolling down a good ways through the list and/or refreshing? That fixed it for me.

I’ve had more luck the last couple of times in getting the sub-forums to stick. This time I changed the view to List since the last Tapatalk app update changed the Groups view to grid.

So, it's been 24 hours and no complaints of a CloudFront block.  Maybe, just maybe Tapatalk has fixed it?  :fingers:

My home IP seems to be staying in the clear now (thanks!), but when I venture out it's still blocking whatever IP I happen to connect to shortly after I start using Tapatalk. I can see why you don't love supporting it from the admin side!

My home address got blocked this week. Forced me to get off of S4GRU for a few hours though, so maybe it was a good thing!  :lol:

Guh, now my home IP is giving me errors on the site and nothing loads. Have to use Sprint LTE to get this to load. Super frustrating.

I will open the ticket back up with Tapatalk.  I was hoping this was resolved.  :(

Thanks for the reports.

I remember when the mobile version use to do something similar to this, which was very frustrating at the time. Yet thankfully it hasn't happened to me in quite some time. I even forgot what the exact notification message that appeared whenever this occurred, but if it ever happens to me again, I'll update about it here, of course once after I've got back online logged in here successfully, obviously

Now I'm at work today and Tapatalk app is giving me this again....which is what I was seeing last night at home. Except my home WiFi wasn't letting me into the website on my laptop either. This work connection on my desktop is wired, but my phone on wireless does not work. Flip off WiFi so I'm on Sprint and it works again. How frustrating!!!!  hope any of this helps with the ticket to Tapatalk.

I've been getting that. No matter what my connection is. Home WiFi, work WiFi or Sprint network.

It's all related. It's IP-based so if you're on Wi-Fi it doesn't matter what device you use. At the moment I believe the only solution is to uninstall Tapatalk or otherwise prevent it from connecting to your network somehow. If it connects, it (eventually) triggers the block. It has happened to me even without launching Tapatalk, presumably because it's doing something in the background.

I got that error too a few days back. Uninstalled Tapatalk and reinstalled with no change. I couldn't even access s4gru website. But once I connected to wifi it worked. Opened a ticket with Sprint and it seems they were blocking this site. I still can't access other site's too unless I'm on wifi

Having Tapatalk on your device period can trigger the block. It is a 48 hour block, so once it is triggered, you cannot clear it even by uninstalling Tapatalk. 

Sprint is not blocking the site, opening a ticket with them will not help.

In fact, if someone gets blocked on a Sprint IP and then you happen to get the same IP address assigned to you in the next 48 hours, you won't get through either. Regardless of your entry path, website or Tapatalk.  Not until the 48 hours ends or you get another unoffending IP address. 

The best thing that can be done until Tapatalk fixes this is to uninstall. I haven't had a problem since I uninstalled.  Even leaving installed and not using caused me a problem.  Tapatalk seems to trigger even in background state sometimes.

I'm using Tapatalk pretty much daily on 2 different phones (iPhone and Android) and have yet to have an issue with wifi or cellular. I guessing that means I'm one of the lucky ones.

Hmmm.  I wonder if the version of Tapatalk matters?  Which one do you use?

Android is 7.1.6(969) iPhone is 7.0.2

I did take advantage of the 99¢ sale years ago and got the pro version so it is ad free on all my deceives.

    • I should have explicitly said cheaper.  4G will be around for a while with the average phone life at 3 years, meaning some keep their phone for 4 or 5 years or even longer.
    • Quite a number of us have been looking at this issue for months, which I call Sequential GCI Sectors (SGS). For those unfamiliar it eliminates the special 8T8R market GCI and reorders all GCI band sectors first by sector then by band.  Without software help this is uncomprehensible to most people. It took a while to get a reasonable sample of data from all sectors from various sites in various tracked markets.  Sprint was also making changes and initially had various models in different markets.  This has only been seen in Samsung markets, although I have looked at data from ALU and Ericsson markets. It should be noted that Mini Macros and B41 small cells are not affected.  It now seems to have stabilized for a while around what is shown in ingenium's chart: Implementation is growing and is getting faster.  Through the many logs I analyze I have seen it pop up in more and more markets.  Still uncertain as to the reason.  The latest theory is for 4x4 MIMO and 256 QAM with a long line of failed theories behind that one.  There are areas of uncertainty surrounding 1) counties with portions of various b41 radius on different frequencies and 2) the handling of 4th and 5th carriers.  We are hoping that Sequential GCI Sectors (SGS) in Columbus and Cincinnati will soon spread to such areas so we have a better data sample.  Currently we only have the area around Youngstown to work with in this regard.  Joski1624 has been key in this along with ingenium. I have handled this with a cutover date for GCIs and tracking expired b41 GCIs.  Early on implementation stretched out over a couple of weeks, but it now seems entire sites are done at once.  I process logs first to find any Sequential GCI Sectors (SGS) sites which are ranked into Yes, Maybe, and No.  "Yes" is determined unique GCI endings which can be increased if you have detailed spreadsheet data on the site that is reasonably current.  These become Approved SGS sites with the earliest one becoming the cutover date which is stored for future use.  "Maybe" are unique GCI endings that don't have an expected EARFCN.  Many of these are transition errors but a signification number are for sites where more data is needed.  These become possible SGS sites and are flagged for followup.  The approved SGS site data is then processed for new carriers and missing/changed PCIs.  B41 is converted back to its old GCI including GCI sectors for this purpose plus to provide data for the expired B41 sites.  The expired b41 sites is also used for Mini Macro GCIs that have been replaced with 8T8R in case they appear elsewhere in the future.  This effort allows old spreadsheets to be retained.    Should a market fully convert (none found so far) to Sequential GCI Sectors (SGS) it will be worth revisiting this multi-step process to simplify it.  The unresolved issue of sites in counties with portions of various b41 radius on different frequencies is the most difficult for SCP.  Sheets may have to track earfcns for those areas and/or store the SGS sectors for them to be properly rebuilt for SCP "national" logs.  Markets with sheets will want to let SCP know the approved SGS sites as users may not be on the right band or sector to know independently. This way regular sites could be stored in their compressed format while only the SGS sites would need more entries. SCP may need to track SGS sites for markets without sheets based on past key GCI sectors.  This may also be the right time for SCP to allow the direct importation of true site lat/longs as RSRP allows for easier detection of EARFCNs in transition.  Another issue that would help is a more resilient error handling (retries) for rooted modem earfcns.  Currently this is often tripped by other apps such as LTE Discovery (used for its airplane mode like ability) or Network Signal Guru  (for bandwidth, MIMO and QAM detection).  Presently you must exit and restart SCP to regain EARFCN detection in such cases. Based on past history, it is safe to assume that Sprint will not totally upgrade all sites in a market to Sequential GCI Sectors (SGS), but  it will likely dominate  -- it will just take a while in true Sprint fashion.  Many of us S4Gru folks have retained older phones  (I have 4) for assigning to different signal tracking purposes.  The general public often has older phones just like these as their main phone.  Without Sequential GCI Sectors (SGS) support older phones in SGS areas may soon become worthless for interactive signal detection and learning. 
    • Here's my multi-point theory on why Sprint isn't roaming on VZW for LTE: Fewer Sprint phones have B13 than B12, and at the point that you're roaming on another carrier you want that low-band signal, most of which is still B13 on VZW. VZW charges more for data roaming than AT&T does, and might not even let Sprint do LTE roaming. This is bolstered by the fact that e.g. FreedomPop uses AT&T rather than Verizon as the underlying network for its stuff...they wouldn't use it if it was expensive. Also, add the PH-1 to the list of unlocked/BYOD phones that likely have the same firmware as the Sprint version, and thus get WiFi calling (though the PH-1 doesn't have Calling Plus; fingers crossed that I get VoLTE). I've been in a few RF dead zones (yay hotels!) lately but have seen the phone drop down to native eHRPD rather than swap to roaming on e.g. T-Mo band 12, so my guess is that I won't see aggressive roaming to LTE until the VoLTE soft launch, and maybe not even then.
    • I'll be heading to the UK in a few months and am trying to figure out whether it's worth it to switch off of Open World (this'll be my first time out of the country, so it's not like I'm using CA/MX data anyway) and grabbing a week pass for while I'm there. Specifically, does anyone know which network Sprint roams on in the UK, and whether it's LTE roaming? If the roaming situation is less than ideal, I figure I'll keep Open World and swing by an EE or Three store to pick up a local SIM, using my 3-cent-per-MB Open World data to get there. But if I can get solid coverage on LTE, I'll gladly do the week pass thing to save the hassle of finding a SIM.
    • Pretty sure they can slowly repurpose LTE portion of M-MIMO to 5G nr so that shouldn't be a problem in the very long run. Just like Clear equipment, and those have served their purpose quite well over the last 6 years.
