  1. Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
  2. No, unfortunately I haven't seen any useful 5G info from your phone (or anyone else's LG) yet. If you get a software update and happen to find 5G before they shut it down, please try reporting again! The accent color is still in its infancy and only appears on LTE for now. I've had it on my version of SCP for several weeks, initially I didn't think anyone else would like it. Figured I'd offer it up and see what the feedback was.
  3. I accidentally broke the Samsung menus when I compiled the latest release; it will be resolved in next update. Thanks, I'll look into that.. it's all a work in progress, glad we are making some headway! The current display format is temporary, it is just to get the data displaying reliably.. once that happens, it will get its own "block" like the connection other technologies have.
  4. Another beta is rolling out now, 4.613b.. I am trying something new with this release. It will only go to some of the Beta Crew, but those who get it should see it on Google Play much faster, perhaps within a few minutes. I targeted many of you who have provided recent 5G feedback. It contains fixes for color accent, 5G, and Samsung shortcuts that were part of last night's beta update. Please try all of the Samsung menu items and let me know which ones (if any) are useful! If there are bugs, send a diagnostic and note what's going on.. thanks!
  5. Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
  6. Doh.. your diagnostic reports are one of the things that helped me identify how to extract more 5G data. I only saw one new report from you but I'll see what I can tweak and hopefully get things working..
  7. New SignalCheck beta release was rolled out tonight and went live a couple hours ago.. some new goodies: A shortcut to the Samsung Band Selector was added; I have no ability to test it myself so please let me know if it works. A new option allows you to add a thin accent line to the LTE info block, which will be colored based on which provider you are connected to. I was trying to add something discreet to be able to quickly tell if I'm on Sprint or T-Mobile.. any feedback to improve this would be appreciated. The best change is a significant increase in the amount of 5G information that the app can discover! Some recent diagnostic reports are showing some useful information, it looks like the latest Samsung update began reporting some new things. Please test and let me know if anything appears. Diagnostic reports are always useful because of the backend details I get. Hopefully these all work well, let me know..
  8. I didn't know that had changed, thanks.. very good to know for testing!
  9. I wish Google would release the RCS API so third-party messaging apps could take advantage of it..
  10. Shoot me a diagnostic if you can catch this again! Invalid signal levels should automatically be filtered out. Yeah, B66 and B71 are natively reported wrong on many devices due to an Android bug. SignalCheck tries to catch these and report them as B66/B71, but it's tricky because in some instances the incorrect band is actually a possible valid result. I'm not aware of B7 showing up, if someone catches that please send a diagnostic.. it is likely B66/B71 being reported incorrectly but not getting caught.
  11. The report you sent showed the app was displaying B2 and the icon at the time was also B2--I checked the graphics to make sure the B2 icon didn't actually say B71, LOL.. if it happens again send another report! I don't recall any recent reports of the notification icon falling out of sync with the app itself.
  12. Your G4 is running Android 6.0, which does not report EARFCN info. SignalCheck is displaying it as band 41 because PLMN ID 311490 is leading it to believe that it is a former Clear site, so it defaults to B41 unless another band is identified another way. With 311490 now being used during the merger transition, it's throwing things off. Unfortunately the app isn't going to be able to know if it's a Clear site or a merger-related thing.. perhaps I'll just remove the default band for now, since newer devices will be able to figure it out anyway. These multiple PLMNs are going to be even more problematic than they were before, because they aren't being used the same way in every market.
  13. Yes, 311490 will still show up in SCP as Clearwire for now. That PLMN is used for different purposes in different regions at the moment, so I'm not tweaking it yet. In my area, it's still assigned to former Clear sites and T-Mobile roaming shows up as 310260. Separate but related, I am working on revamping the LTE provider display to give users the option of utilizing whatever name the network is reporting if it differs from the app's internal database. Not sure when it will be ready for end users though. The app does not currently track anything specific to EARFCNs, but maybe in the future that could be something I consider. Plenty already on my plate at the moment though!
  14. Are you on the latest version (4.61)? I have only received a couple of scattered reports of issues with that release, and they don't seem specific to Android 10. I've mentioned before that I've exchanged messages with the Cellmapper dev in the past. Considering it's quasi-competition I'd never directly ask for info, but I do know they use some of their own proprietary routines. I also have some home-grown digging in SCP and I'm always trying new ways to pull info.
  15. Based on the feedback I have received, the latest version of SCP seems to be generally back to normal on Android 10 and I'm not aware of any pending issues specific to the G8X. Still working on the sporadic log import/export issues.
