can´t control B-Robot evo 2 with org. App
Dear all,
I´m having troubles controlling my newly created B-Robot Evo2.
When I power on the robot after a couple of seconds it slightly moves the weels and the servo for a few seconds.
Then I connect my Android device to the Wifi of the B-Robot and opened the App.
Telemetry is working (I see the angle changing if I move the robot by hand).
Even the Robot stands up and keep standing with a small wiggling back and forth.
But regardless of what control I use in the App simply nothing happens on the B-Robot. I can´t move it and also the Servo is not responding to any input.
I reinstalled the Arduino Sources from Github but nothing changed.
Do you have any idea how to sort out this issue and get it solved?

Check that only one device is connected to the B-robot and that the Android device is not blocking it. Sometimes a message like "This network does not have internet connection. Stay connected?" You should say "yes, stay connected" Otherwise the android device will not send any command (but can receive telemetry)

I tried again using my Galaxy S7 @Android 8.0 and regardless of settings it only shows the telemetry.
Now I reactivated my old Sony Z1 Compact @Android 6.0.1 (Cyanogen Mod) and it worked!

Any idea why the S7 not worked but the Z1?

I could also test with a few other devices and post results here.

Every brand is cooking its own version of the Android OS. Some block in a way or another external comms if they do not provide internet access.It can be tricky sometimes but all the devices, at the end, will let you send the commands to the B-robot. :-)
