Pokémon GO 0.177.0 freezes on startup.

Android 5.1.1

Regards.


#2

Mine doesn’t.

we are not Niantic

Is your device supported by Pokemon go? (Unfamiliar with Android)


#3

Two devices with Android 5.1.1, Pokémon GO worked well for years on both.
Without any problems with the previous version on both.

Anyone else having issues with version 0.177.0?


#4

Known issue, just not yet by Niantic. But they are always a bit slow.


#5

Looks like Niantic is finally aware of it from that linked page.


#6

Yeah, I came here to see if this was a thing. I haven’t been able to access the game for days.

Hopefully this is fixed soon. I was looking forward to the Unova throwback, yet was not able to play at all. Awesome. lol


#7

There is a new update coming up. 0.177.1
If it brings a solution I don’t know.


#8

My 0.177.0 G for Android has been somewhat flaky (including frequent delays and some freeze problems); but quitting and restarting has been effective each time. Hoping the next version restores the stability it had before this version.


#9

It’s been acknowledged by Niantic https://niantic.helpshift.com/a/pokemon-go/?p=web&s=top-articles&f=known-issues


#10

At Ingress they have had the same problem since March. And they still can’t play.

Well, I’m not buying a new phone just to play, so … that ends my near 4-year run on Pokemon Go.


#14

my 32-bit device still works, but crashes often.


#15

I hate upgrade coercion, too. How old is the phone you’re using? More than 5 y.o.?


#16

:frowning:


#17

I’m not 100% sure, to be honest. I bought it four years ago, but it was considered an older model at the time. Phones are one thing that I don’t really splurge on. I’m not a “gotta run out and get the newest model!” type. lol


#18

Nor am I. But when my phone gets too old to run the current apps, I get one from the current generation, even if it’s not the top-of-the-line. (We’ll see how long I can stick to that strategy when there are always tempting deals for older stuff)


#19

I used to get the latest and greatest phone every 2 years on a contract plan, then pogo came along and due to the amount of battery being used a day, the phones were lucky to last a little over a year before you couldn’t charge them anymore. It was at that point I switched to prepaid and rather than getting a $1000 phone every 2 years, I switched to getting 2 $250 phones every year.

After a got a Samsung A series wich completely sucked i changed tactics. Whenever i need a new one i go for the newest model, but they do last a while.
My last 3 were an S2, S6 and now S10. I had the battery replaced after a bit more than 2 years in the S6 to make sure it could keep running again for a while. Doesnt cost too much and its a great way to extend your phones life.
