ALDLDroid Android App

Postby Dylan » Fri Nov 14, 2014 7:23 pm

Got a new phone yesterday (Samsung Galaxy Note 4) and I've always been going to get this app after seeing a post from Antus on it and reading the development thread on gear head I think it is.

What an amazing app, works a treat on 12P. I have a Samsung tablet as well but it needs a different USB OTG cable.
No more laptop and charger just to get a log. It can flash tunes as well but I haven't tried that yet.
Using a USB interface from VL400 was just plug and play to easy.

Man this stuffs come a long way since Kalmaker. I remember when that was the ducks nuts.
I had SP3 but it turned me off tuning made it to hard.

Anyone else running this app?

ALDLDROID I just loaded 12P xdf adx and my bin. I already had VL400's USB interface.
Got a USB OTG lead from local leading edge $10. (Google USB On The Go) and good to go.
Only catch is $20 for the app but I think it's worth it. I can now leave the laptop at home if I'm just wanting to get a log.
It can real time tune but probably best to leave tuning to tuner pro, although a tablet would be better than a phone.

Just a heads up it cant read or write bins. Only if you have your bin on the device you can log and edit to try later.

Just noticed that actually, chip burning with Moates gear. Im not familiar eith his gear.
Flashing NVRAM would just top it off for me.

Grabbed a copy a while ago but haven't had a chance to use it yet... my tablet has a clamshell keyboard dock that gives extra battery power and standard USB ports so it should work well.

With regard to the Moates gear I have an Autoprom which I bought just before the hardware was available here (doh). I find its pretty good though, I use it with $12P on an '082/'305 mostly.

Theres nothing specific about the moats gear, you just need a way to read and write bins. You can do that with the flash tool, moats gear, a gq4x, eeprom, eprom + a uv eraser etc. I asked the author about supporing ALDL read/write a while ago but he wasnt interested at that time. Maybe some others should ask him also. If he says yes, we can give him details of the protocol.

Been emailing the owner. Very honest and blunt couple of emails good on him for not mucking around.
Not interested in any further development although he acknowledges ALDL read and write is possible.

And one important thing I missed in his development notes that he dropped the xdl format support for the log files.

Get what you pay for another thumbs up for VL400 loggers.

Have only used it a few times, but was impressed. Not as tailored for our hardware but worked well.

I had a few PM's with the developer a few months ago when he was wanting to add xdl logging but needed the xdl file format. Last convo he had it pretty close, so was expecting it in a release. And to stay as a feature!
