Hello!
A significant portion of tasks I receive (overall, 1 out of 3) error out within seconds:
Number of lc points is greater than POINTS_MAX = 1000

I presume those tasks eventually get completed by some other machine, so it's probably not a huge deal. But it seems to be getting worse, i.e. I think I'm getting more errors than ever before.
Issue appears to have started mid-October 2023.

The app is:
Period Search Application v102.12 (arm_android_pie) arm-android-linux-gnu

BOINC client 7.24.1.

Example failed task:
https://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/result.php?resultid=439588206

More failures:

We're aware of this issue. The Android app is outdated, it can't handle some types of tasks anymore. We are in the process of recompiling old apps with the most recent code; the Android app seems to be the last one... We'll fix it eventually, but it may take some time, please be patient :)

Sorry for starting another thread before reading this one.
Well, got Android 4.2.2 on my TV boxes, old enough to have this problem. :D

I just blew through 80 or so apparently badly formatted gpu work units on five different hosts. Not seen this type of error before on any of my hosts. Seems similar to the type mentioned in the OP.

Looks that is all that is going out now is bad work.

Good job.

Bad smell is from me. It has been fixed. Breathe easy.

What is the process of getting the new app? Removing Asteroids and re-attaching Asteroids?

Keith's issue was unrelated to the android's app.

The new android app still hasn't been released, so the "Number of lc points is greater than POINTS_MAX = 1000" problem is still present. The code is ready, we just need to build it and upload a new release to the server. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the server, so it has to wait for Georgi & Radim once they have time to do it.
