here you go: [removed by request]

root check removed
auth/device check removed

no decoder here so can't test it, pls check and report

EDIT: this is not a paid app so I HOPE it won't be considered warez. if mods do think otherwise please feel free to remove this post

Good news is the app installs and opens. Unfortunately it crashes when it seems to want to start displaying the picture...

Going to try on a stock P7500.

EDIT: Just tried on a stock P7500. Exactly the same behaviour

Thank you seo for removing the root check though. I am sure when the release this officially for the P7500 that we will be asking for that root check to be removed again.

Installs and opens fine.
Ran the app, with decoder on.
Skiped authentication part.
Found my decoder.
Said I needed to update the firmware of the decoder.
Updated the firmware.
Said if it doesn’t connect, I should reset the decoder.
Reset the decoder,
Restarted the app,
Found the decoder,
Gave a message… connecting to *decoder name*.
Then crashed.

Tested on Desire HD
Will test on a galaxy tab 10.1v and report back

Exactly the same thing happened on my Samsung Galaxy S2. Manages to find decoder, connected, updated firmware, restarted. Connecting and then just a black screen, and then menu screen of the phone. I would send a logcat, but my work PC doesn't have the SDK, will try this evening from home.

Thanks again Seo.
