Jasem, I have an update about my issues.

1. Somehow I decided to try previous version, downloaded apk from apkpure and 2.5.1 connects and works! It can see stellarmate, it can connect, it starts ekos and devices. So I conclude that the issue is in 2.5.2. I had only one issue with 2.5.1 when it didn't connect, but anyway it is not 3 days of struggling. I will continue testing it.
2. Yes, I did that. As I said, webmanager and VNC were accessible from the same smartphone, while the app didn't see it, same as manual IP address didn't help.
3. I can

I bought Stellarmate OS 3 days ago as it has a mobile app that I wanted to use. Coming from Astroberry I thought that all that posts that it is unusable are fakes (you just need to setup everything correctly as in Astroberry I thought). However, now I understand why there is many negative posts. My experience went from good to bad, I managed to run everything on the first one or two boots, and then features just deasppeared.

1. When I loaded first time I got a crash with toupcam driver [Warning: Spoiler!]
2. Next I pressed update through the VNC (it was the latest version already but some update was pending) and after update kstars shortcut disappeared from the descctop as well as 2 other shortcuts. (fixed)
3. So I had to reinstall stellarmate and here comes "no hotspot" issue. I tried 3 different sdcards (usual, A1 , V30) and both 32 and 64bit versions. Finally I have some sdcard that works. Thats fixed.
4. Then I could see device and connect it to home wifi but got a message "EkosLive is down", tried all steps in faq - no luck. Tried to start ekos manually through VNC - no help. Reinstall app - no luck. Decided to reinstall os again (not fixed)
5. After 3 other fresh installs app deceted device only once(!) . No I can't connect though the app at all in different os versions(32/64 bit, different sd cards), I can't even access the step "EkosLive is down", I tried to enter IP manually but the app doesn't see it(!), BUT I can access through МТС from the same smartphone(!) and through bonjour discovery name(!!) in the browser! So the issue is ddifenetly in the app. Not even a reinstall helps. (not fixed)

So I have to use Stellarmate OS same as Astroberry through VNC, the only benefit (the app) simply doesn't work for me.

PS As a mobile developer I've seen lots of apps, lots fo legacy code, but I have never had such bad experience as a user. Probably that's React Native issue, probably some internal logic. More effort should be put into mobile, it's such a waste of opportunity

My issue is that I can't start Ekos Live in offline mode on the latest KStars. I know it is not connected to the development of ekos-web, but probably you can give me some hints

Hey Rick,

is this project still actual? The last update was last year, probably something has changed, but I didn't manage to run Ekos in offline mode. It tries to make some network requests on connect but fails. Is there some specific configuration, should we run some "server" on the same device?

How is Ekos Live offline mode supposed to work? It seems that it is not offline since when I select option `offline` and press `connect` the app still makes some network requests and always get 
"Connection refused". No matter what I do - the result is the same. Unfortunately, I didn't find any documentation or an answer in the FAQ

Is there any specific reason for this? Feature seems to be rather useful

That files were taken not exactly using Ekos, but manually. It is impossible to take 3 files since a crash occurs right after the first one and before displaying the second one

Hey Jasem, I think this is a duplicate issue to indilib.org/forum/ekos/10265-polar-align...-crash.html?start=12
One of the reasons for the crash is that I can't get the second image according to the stack trace. Seems that we can't proceed further loading FITS but only for the second iamge.

What is important is that that happens only to GPhoto CCD with Sony A6300. I managed to successfully polar align with ZWO mini guide cam
