Hi there,

 

How did you change the resolution and what resolution did you change to? I have a Samsung tab which I need to change so that I can use the intercom function.

 

Thanks a lot.

Everything has a price, u can change the DPI settings In the developer menu but in landscape mode the Comfort will crash the app along with some other proxies that I cannot recall now.

Only portrait mode will work, so u better be on eBay sourcing these T3’s as the experience will not be the same 😃

As you can see above I managed to have everything working in 2 tablets in vertical mode, both 6” and 8” working fine with Intercom, I even have it working with my 4” square ones.  For the 8” in landscape mode Intercom will work but comfort will not work u just see the icon but pressing it will crash the app!

I had 2 T3s (table top versions) go bad in the last couple weeks so started looking for alternatives.  I picked up one of these Lenovo Smart Tab M8 Gen 3 (with charging station) -Lenovo Smart Tab M8 Gen 3 with Google Assistant and Charging Station | Lenovo US. Great form factor with stand and great price....

I was able to get intercom working when setting DPI to 214 (and greater).  No crashing on comfort or other sections.  Only problem is that it is in portrait mode only - which works agains the table stand format.

Anyone updates on getting landscape and intercom working?

 

Thanks!

My T3 had the C4 w exclamation mark of death. No amount of hard reboot or trying to get it to reimage would work. Actually wouldn't even show up on the imager app my dealer had. Ended up in the trash got a T4. Moved the T4 to my daughters room and boy is it so much faster than a T3. Put the old T3 from her room in guest room where previous T3 crapped the bed.

I’d sell it on eBay not trash it, I buy T3’s for parts, so u should make me an offer and I’ll go for it!

Sadly too late! Next time though I'll def keep you in mind. Was definitely a sw problem which is so upsetting they have them so locked down a dealer can't wipe and completely reimage.
