Theta V app not working anymore

Postby JimmyMunro » 19 May 2019, 21:20

The last few weeks when I connect to my theta V with my android phone (LG G5) it starts up okay etc. When I go to Settings option and pic Camera I get the message the Theta App has stopped working. Then I have to close the app and start again. It crashes every time I repeat the same action.
Now it worked before and one of the updates have messed it up. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
Anyone know any way to fix it, or do we have to wait for an update?

I have same issue. Reinstalling app does not help.
I have read error message and I suppose that app trying to read some data from camera and getting some unexpectable result ("null object reference"). Than it crashes. So we need to complete reset of camera and it`s internal data.
But I can`t find any information about it.

java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'java.lang.String com.theta360.camera.settingvalue.AppOffDelay.toString(android.content.Context)' on a null object reference

finaly I have found some infos. We need to partisipate in developer program and get access to android API. Then we shoud do this

I did solve this problem by resetting camera.
May be there will be plug-in to do this quckly.
By now here is salvation. You do not need to be developer.
1) download Postman https://www.getpostman.com/
You must register or use your google account
2) connect you PC to camera`s wifi network (wifi-led should be solid blue)
3) run Postman and fill some fields with data
method -> POST
url -> http://192.168.1.1/osc/commands/execute
headers -> Content-Type: application/json
body -> raw -> {"name": "camera.reset"}

4) push the button SEND

That is all. LED will blink red and camera will reset.
