I have updated the android app.  It is syncing past the hard fork. 

Google took the app off the market, but I changed what needed to be updated so hopefully it goes back online soon.



The Android app was working great up until about 4 days ago. Now I'm getting a "synchronization stalled, 4 days behind" message.

Do you think resetting the blockchain could help?

What block is your block explorer stuck at?

Mine is at 249539 from June 28.  I get three peers.

Something must have gone wrong with the difficulty calculation at block 249540.

Thanks for investigating this issue. :)

My block explorer is also stuck on block 249539. I'm currently connected to 5 peers.

I have verified using android app logs that the block 249540 the difficulty adjustment code has a bug.  The fork was at block 248000, but I have seen it before that a bug happens much later than when the code change is activated.

This is a problem in the app.  It does not match what the desktop client is doing.

Is the buggy code on the Github?

I wonder if we could post a link to the code lines in question and get suggestions like you see here: https://github.com/gavinandresen/bitcoinxt/commit/821e223ccc4c8ab967399371761718f1015c766b

The code is not on Github.  I forgot to push the latest updates.  I will make sure it gets updated.

The github repo has been updated.

Thanks Eric. It looks like Amir will be releasing the 'Golden River' patch on or around Sunday.

Once the new patch is released, I think the top 2 things on our agenda should be getting listed again on Bittrex (or another exchange) and getting the Android app working again.
