Android Joplin 1.0.179 / 1.0.181 not working - android 4.4



Using Joplin on Android I updated from 1.0.176 to 1.0.179. Starting lead to white screen.
Reinstalled 1.0.176, running fine again. Updated to 1.0.181 again only white screen after starting. Waiting for 25 minutes still white screen!
Did some of you know this behaviour? Whats wrong? I dont have many notes!


Android app doesn't work after update - Android 4.4.x

Laurent said that this update takes time the first start because of the creation of indexes for the search engine


Could you run un debug mode and check if there’s any error in the Console or log ?


Hi Laurent!

Uninstalled. Reinstalled 1.0.181. No notes, no syn, starting leads to white screen again.

What android version is it?




Same issue here. Previous versions worked fine. The app opens successfully and I can do pretty much anything except view notes. Whenever I click on a note I get a white screen.

edit: After some testing this only seems to be the case with synced notes. When I create a new local note on a fresh install there’s no white screen and everything works fine. As soon as I set up the sync target however, things start to break. I tried two different Nextcloud servers using both the Nextcloud and WebDAV setup and I always get a white screen when trying to open a note. What’s more, when I try to write to the server by creating a new note or notebook, the app crashes.


Looks like FTS is not supported in these versions of Android. I thought it was but maybe not on all devices or something. I’ll add a check that disable FTS when not supported.


Hello! Related issue here, but then with regards to my desktop version on Windows. I started to encounter these problems after the most recent upgrade. First I could not open synced notes, but could start new notes. However now Joplin only opens a white screen and freezes. Reinstalling does not work. Is there anything else I can try?


Please open a separate topic and provide the debug log, which as you might imagine is needed to debug the problem.


GitHub issue for FTS bug: https://github.com/laurent22/joplin/issues/1066


Tested version 1.0.232. It’s running without problems again. Disabling FTS is the solution.
Thank you! :smiley::+1:
