Hello,

i would love to run this project on some android devices powered by solar power excess production, but every time the computation pauses, when it resumes it restarts from 0% over and over, wasting all the computation time done up to that point.

Is there any plan to fix this?

Thank you for this project support by the way.

Probably the project is issuing tasks to Android users with checkpointing disabled in the job.xml file.

This issue was mentioned in this BOINC Github issue #4193

The issue was marked closed as fixed in client version 7.18.1
