Had something like that (with an older bridge) at one point to allow me to update the empeg while it was in the car. Just a royal hassle getting the ethernet connector to work so that the empeg can be removed easily.

Yeah, that can be a bit of a fuss at times. I once made up a bunch of precisely milled MDF chunks for the purpose -- they fit tightly inside the car dock and hold an RJ45 plug in exactly the right position. Cut the tab from the plug, of course!

Just had another look around, and they're all gone.

Might be a good excuse to try out another 3D printer...

At the 2019 Meet near Cambridge, several attendees had not heard of this app. I still use it myself, and strongly recommend it to others.

But it is no longer listed on Google Play. So I have PM'd the author (suomi35) to see what the current status is. Ideally we might work out a scheme for me to just provide it inside the new all-in-one builder_v21 images. We'll see.

Has anyone here built a binary from the gihub source?
I don't know how to go about it, and I already have the paid binary from Google Play for myself. But if we could get one built from github then it would be reasonably legit to redistribute in the builder package.

Thanks.

There looks to be a debug version of the apk in github, if that helps at all ?

I copied both of those to my spare Android handset, and then clicked on each, but neither would work/run: "There was a problem while parsing the package."

EDIT Oh, wait. I screwed up and got HTML instead of the .apk. Will try again..

Okay, after actually getting the correct (2MB) file onto my handset, it installs/runs just fine. I will add the app-empeg.apk to the builder image, renamed to the more obvious empeg-remote-android.apk

Cheers

I hope to get round to doing a root filesystem respin from the builder_v21 image Real Soon Now, so that we can all just install a .upgrade to get the extra features from here without having to reformat our drives. smile
