KStars Lite 4.0 does not start #24172
I have not used KStars Lite for about a year. It previously worked OK with my LX90 and RPI3. Recently I added more SD memory to my Android phone (Android 6.0) The increased memory was set (formated) to be an extension of the internal. My phone still complains about not having enough free memory to install some app updates.. Although there are lest complaints than before the memory increase. So I removed a no longer wanted app and uninstalled Kstars Lite which still would not start.. Then installed it again (version 4.0 from Playstore). This version is claimed to overcome a crash on start problem.
Still no joy, The sand clock sits there for a while and then a failure to start is reported with the option to report the problem, This forum is more direct I think.

We need the crash log at least to have a clue what is the problem on your side. The easiest would be if you complete the "Report the problem", otherwise set your phone to developer mode+USB debugging, install adb on your machine, connect your phone with USB cable, start "adb logcat" on your machine, start KStars Lite on your phone, it will crash, the log will be on your console window and send that to us.

KStars Lite 4.0 does not start #32026
Doesn't work for me either
Crashes while loading NGC/IC objects (at 90%).
On my Asus Nexus 7" 2013 (android 6) and Galaxy SM-A320 (android 8 ).
(I completed the "Report the problem")
Many people report same problem at google Play Store.
Thanks,
Max

Current version is 3.0 not 4, by the way.

Today, an update was pushed from google play. Now it works!
Version number is still 3.0.0 but the build is different.

Yes because it is still the old, crashing version. Jasem did not upload the fixed version by some reason yet.

In Playstore it shows up as KStars Lite 3.4, while downloading it shows 3.3.3. I am unable to find a version 4.0 or any other.

He doesn't even reply to personal messages. Is there no one who can fix it and upload? Or better yet, if someone has a version which is working and I can install it in my phone, I would be very grateful.

The same issue persists. I've downloaded the apk etc, but once again as NGC loads, it crashes. Any other solution?

There was actually _another_ crash issue that was fixed recently. Did you try with the latest image from yesterday?
