    @andyrozman was this change for particular smartphone/chipset BT or general Android 8.1 change?
    I'm considering getting new phone in next 1-2 months and if 8.1 renders Combo communication useless then have to make sure I get one with 9.0 (well, for now I have two on my list, Galaxy S9+ and OnePlus 6T and bot have 9.0)
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    No. As I am told 8.1 is only version that works, without doing anything. I am just wondering if 9.x will also work, or did the change got "lost", if the new 9.x tree was created when 8.0 was released and later changes from 8.1 were NOT merged into 9.0, then we might have lost changes that are valuable to us. I have Galaxy S9 and battery is useless... I had to install Linegae 15.1 on it (Samsung doesn't want to give 8.1 out)... While S9+ has better battery it also has bigger display, which will negate everything good that would come from bigger battery... I was told that OnePlus has very good battery, so I ordered one (5T). Since it has 8.1 on it I hope it works OK, but as I was told OnyxOS might pose a problem with BT itself...

    @andyrozman OnyxOS is just overlay for base OS so if works on 8.1 should work, the only problem I may see with OnyxOS is aggressive battery management as they want to SHOW that they have good battery live, this is big problem on Huawei/Honor smartphones where they have very aggressive battery management in own OS/Overlay EMUI which can't be disabled even if rooted (maybe now, I sold my last year), I had Honor 9 and AAPS was killed EVEN when all battery management was disabled. Regarding Galaxy and battery, I had S8 for few months and battery live was good, xDrip+, AAPS and as my daily driver last maybe 36h BUT I rooted and debloated it, disabled all the Samsung crap apps, S9 should be even better in same scenario. I'm also concerned about OnePlus and possible BT problems (with 6/ 6T).

    problem I have with Lineage OS is that the native camera app is not ported to LOS and most of the time the LOS camera does not support dual camera, you have then just one and the quality is not as good as with native app, sometimes someone is porting the native cam app but you never know when and if at all
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    I don't use phone just for AAPS and stuff, this is my real phone... And while I am not heavy user battery still lasts about 10-12 hours, sometimes even less... And this is with Lineage... I hope OnePlus 5T will last little bit longer, I just hope I won;'t be forced to put LineageOS on it...

    I have oneplus 6, dex g5, aaps dev branch. Paired on 8.1 (oxygen os) with ruffy "pairing" branch. Two days ago upgraded to android 9.0 (oxygen os). Since then haven't noticed any problems.
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    @infoneo But you did have problems with 8.1?
    infoneo
    @infoneo
    No, I haven't. Just pairing had to be done via "paring" branch.
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    pairing branch?
    Mike
    @libxmike
    there is ruffy version just for pairing
    @infoneo how is battery live on the 6? are you using xDrip+?
    infoneo
    @infoneo
    yes, xdrip+, battery is not bad. like on every smartphone it depends on individual habbits. battery stats estimates 1 day 14 hours(battery usage - navi: 8%; aaps: 3%; xdrp: 1%). Much better than my old sgs5 :)
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    @libxmike I did my pairing with standard version (I think)... I was actually using combo branch I think always... Would "pairing" branch be needed to 8.1?
    Mike
    @libxmike
    @andyrozman as far as I know if you paring with 7.1 or 8.1 you dont need "pairing" branch just the one you will use with AAPS
    I dont really remember in what case I use the "pairing" branch
    infoneo
    @infoneo
    @andyrozman in the wiki: https://androidaps.readthedocs.io/en/latest/EN/Configuration/Accu-Chek-Combo-Pump.html You can read: "Install ruffy and use it to pair the pump. If it doesn’t work after multiple attempts, switch to the pairing branch, pair the pump and then switch back the original branch." On the OxygenOS 8.1 and with basic ruffy, I have tried to pair many times - without success, when I switched to the "pairing" branch, I have paired with the first attempt. maybe it was coincidence :)
    Mike
    @libxmike
    @infoneo @andyrozman even with the "pairing" branch somtimes I needed multiple attempts
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    I had terible problems in begining with ruffy (a lot of crashes), so I started using the one from different repository (it was in one post in FB, where we talked about how much battery it used, that version was actually the most stable for me - I was using rooted Samsung A5 at the time)...
    Mike
    @libxmike
    ruffy uses less than 1% Battery in 4h, CPU total 1m33s and power use 2mAh (Moto G5)
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    I didn't switch because of battery, I switched because that other branch had some stability fixes, which actually helped great deal... After I started using that version, I rarelly had to restart my phone anymore (before that I had to restart my phone, every few days)...

    Hi, I do have a question regarding the Android fix needed for Combo. Does anyone by chance know the tracking ID for the change, so it can be checked that it is integrated. I know that it is implemented, but I would like to have some trace that it can be confirmed.
    since it's a one line patch, you can also check the implementation file directly

    @savek-cc thanks, do you also happen to have the link for Googleandroid itself?

    WOW! Energiser Ultimate Lithium just bit the dust after 46 days 11.5 hours
    That's not just a record for me on the combo, out likes almost triples the closest contender........
    out likes=out last
    Ok how about "it likes". Auto fill really can be irritating....

    Wow. I'm getting a reliable 22 days from alkalines bought at a discounter (Aldi Nord)

    @kallnap
    quality of batteries varies quite a bit :-/
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    I usually use Energiser Lithium and they last about 40 days usually...but I had one that lasted over 50 days...

    @chriske64
    Hello everyone, I've got a new phone, Sony Xperia XZ 2 compact (Android 9.0) and would like to pair with the combo
    I manage that the pump finds the phone and when I confirm the phone on the pump (after waiting for 5s), I never reach the point where I am supposed to enter the 10 digit security code
    has anyone experienced that problem before?
    any help would be great :)
    Christoph Ke
    @chriske64
    Actually, it worked once I started the 'pairing' branch in the debug mode from Android Studio - no idea why though.
    Andy Rozman
    @andyrozman
    Did someone ever have problems pairing Combo with Android 9?
    Mike
    @libxmike
    not me, no problem with OnePlus 6 or Moto Z3 Play
    Mike
    @libxmike
    but as always, did have to try few times
    AdrianLxM
    @AdrianLxM
    I do that the code screen hardly appears. Only if I give up and touch something else... Then it's there.
    Mike
    @libxmike
    one problem I see but not Android 9 related, when the first pairing screen pops out (the first one that goes away on its own) and xDrip+ is running in the background, xDrip+ pops out and says open, best way is to disable BG collector in xDrip and kill it while pairing Combo, did this few days ago with Moto Z3 and android 9
