Anyone up for the task? The Android version would probably be an easy compile. For version 5 compatibility it would require PEI extensions.
Subsetsum work units are going out to Windows machines now.
Yep, all my machines got a bunch of them. They seem to be working just fine. About 1hr 30min to complete each WU.
It appears they are sending out Wildlife Windows work units.
Yep, I picked up my first Wildlife badge yesterday, in fact.
Now I'm curious...
A Moto E Android phone earns about 60.04 points every 12,113.36 seconds on the SubSetSum work units.
Phone specs: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-Moto-E-2015_id9252
So roughly 436 PPD/core. (dual core)
HTC Rhyme earns about 56.01 points every 13,839.06 seconds.
Phone specs: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/HTC-Rhyme_id6169
So roughly 349.7 PPD (single core phone)
Is this a BOINC project or do you need to sign up at the CSG site?
Where's the phone app?
I have an Asus ZenFone 2 with quad core Intel Atom Z3580 2.3GHz 64-bit CPU.
This is a BOINC project. So, it uses the BOINC client. How you sign up to the project is up to you. If you use BAM!, then just create an account from there. If you don't, then just do it manually. Let me know if you need help getting connected.
You should be able to download BOINC from Google Play. If you don't see it, nativeBOINC is there as well but isn't official from Berkeley (and I don't think it supports x86). I use both depending on which device I'm looking at. nativeBOINC is based on an older version but will work on older versions of Android and has a few options the official one does not.
Once you have installed the client of choice, you just attach it like you would your PC and it will pull accorddingly. The problem you will run into is that there is only two projects out there that has an x86 Android app. That is SETI BETA and WUProp. At least, I'm not familiar with any other projects with it yet.
Got BOINC installed on my phone but it says CSG isn't compatible. Bummer! Looks like WUProp is good to go as soon as my phone reaches 90% charge. That's probably a waste though as I won't keep my phone plugged into the charger full time for that.
You may want to attach to SETI BETA then. WUProp wont do any good unless you have another project running. It won't even credit because the work units will essentially have no useful data. Most projects that support ARM typically scale their work units so that they can complete on time under typical charging times. Give it a shot and report back what you find. I have ran projects on 600MHz ARM devices. I'm sure you can complete the work with that bad boy on 8 hour a day charge times....lol
Ok, SETI Beta running on the phone now.
I hit my 1 million point goal. RFGuy_KCCO better get his butt in gear to catch me in the 1 million race...lol
My samsung Android phone runs the the subset CSG subproject but says no work for DNA, but the project didn't appear in the project list, I had to add the URL manually.
You can alter the 90% charge in the advance preferences and also allow it to run off the battery so you don't need the charger in all the while but it does run the battery down quick .
jondi, his other issue is that his device is an Atom based phone. So, the project must support x86 Android apps...
Well... looks like we are kicking it off strong with 1st place. It will be fun to see how far this test goes.
Well... perhaps I spoke too soon. Not sure how the points are going to be yet as there was some kind of hiccup with the DNA points.
Dude, there is no way I will ever catch you! I am going to keep trying, but I know it is a losing proposition. It is still fun to try, though.
That,s OK I will pass him for you on the next update
Grandpa's going mowing!
Looks like he has 11 more projects to go...
Travis just posted the following message on the project's main page:

SubsetSum is also now using fixed credit as the work units are pretty much all the same size. Some of my systems are seeing a large bump in points increase from what it was. Some are as much as 50% more credit, but that is only on new work units starting today. Some of my ARM devices have almost doubled in the points awarded.
And this is why we are testing... lol
I had 190 work units get 0 credits. But, I honestly don't care. They are valid work units and it is for the science.
some potential good news
A DNA@Home app for GPUs
tayunz, get that opteron 6376 to finish the two CSG tasks !
you happen to be my wingman for these two tasks, lol.
