@nigelkeirross Because I asked on the issue log you've posted and people had said that Libre was affected, even though almost all the conversation on there was for Dexcom
You have to distinguish how the Nov. security patch affects the Bluetooth stack (every bonding/pairing has to be confirmed from now on) and how xDrip implements BT communication to certain devices. xDrip establish only one bonding during setup of any BT device it communicates with, except for Dexcom.
Anyone know if it's still possible to hard reset G6 transmitters with the latest firmware? I’ve got an 8M transmitter, firmware is 188.8.131.52, on Android 11, latest nightly build of xDrip.
When I attempt the hard reset, it comes back with
Hard Reset maybe. Failed, and the error in the logs is
Failed to write ResetTxMessage: com.polidea.rxandroidble2.exceptions.BleDisconnectedException: Disconnected from MAC=‘XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX’ with status 19 (GATT_CONN_TERMINATE_PEER_USER)
Dealing with some insurance issues trying to get my next transmitter, so was hoping I could get a few more days out of it (it still has battery life, but hit that 112 day limit).
OK mostly stuff I was aware of. Although, of all the techniques I concur using old Android Wear after a reset seems the least problematic to get xDrip prefs on the phone.
I truly despise how Google broke legacy watch compatibility and then silently updated those users to Wear OS. It's extremely irresponsible and has been reported by other non diabetic users in the past - particularly around Play Music loss of function, broken WiFi to name a couple. This just makes it worse as Play Music is thier own app.
Translation isn't working perfectly but one thing piqued my interest...
"When you no longer want the smartwatch to be the master, FIRST disable both boxes
Enable Wearing G5 Collection Service and Force Wearing G5 Collector Service and AFTER,
just in case Android Wear integration.
If you don't follow this sequence, xDrip + may leave control to the smartwatch e
lose the connection with miaomiao, requiring a reset of the transmitter"
