Galaxy S5 - Frostwire Pause

Postby Kaiser Angel » Tue Sep 08, 2015 1:44 pm

Hi all,

I've done a few searches before making this thread but I haven't found any answers.

Basically frostwire keeps pausing and doesn't auto resume, it's almost like it downloads a few packets then gets confused and stops.

I haven't found an answer or a work around for this but frostwire worked fine in the last version, doesn't anyone have the links for the previous versions of FW? Or a work around for the issue?

Phone - SM-G900F (Galaxy S5)
OS - lolipop 5.0

I'm not all that familiar with phones but this may be what you're looking for:

Thanks Scott,

I'll report back if this doesn't fix the issue. Maybe the devs can use it in the next build.

Okay so the issue was build 202 for what ever reason, if anyone has the same problem revert back to build 200 (FrostWire 1.6.2 build 200).

Would it be an idea to add this to the troubleshooting?

Regards,
~KA

P.S.
Excellent app

The problem that the developers have been having is that these failures are not consistent and they can't duplicate them. Many times, the next release solves the problem and no one knows why. Always keep handy the prior version before updating would be my advice.

I had the same issue with both my Android devices, and it was becoming bloody tedious!

Thanks for initiating this thread as reverting back to build 200 appears to have solved my issue too.

Cheers
Ian

This sounds like the problem I'm having. How do I revert back to the previous build?

Thanks :)

Darn...this doesn't seem to have fixed my problem. Any other ideas?

You could try other releases.
Always uninstal the old one first.
