I have been using the Android app c:geo for geocaching (https://www.cgeo.org/). It stopped working after updating to Rokua.
Fresh install of the app.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Launch the app c:geo. The “Getting started” page opens.
- Tap “Configure your geocaching platform(s)”. The platform selection opens.
- Tap on any of the platform names. The app freezes.
After closing the app after freezing, it won’t start at all on the next try. Reinstall or “Clear data” fixes the startup-issue, but not the freezing.
The freezing happens also when trying to exit the “About” page byt tapping the back button.
The app has a “Generate logfile” button and I was able to get a few lines there:
[main] External public cgeo directory ‘/storage/emulated/0/cgeo’ not available
[RxCachedThreadScheduler-1] ‘null’ is NOT available as external dir
[RxCachedThreadScheduler-1] Chosen extCgeoDir null is not an available external dir, falling back to default extCgeoDir
[main] ‘null’ is NOT available as external dir
[main] Chosen extCgeoDir null is not an available external dir, falling back to default extCgeoDir
[looper callbacks] Unable to create network location provider: provider doesn’t exist: network
The same behaviour occurs even with old versions of the app, so this is definately a regression. I know the app was working at least in February 2020 and not working anymore in June 2020. The Rokua update was in April 2020.
