Just got my Android 9 update on Nokia 6.1 (TA-1043) and ANT+ support does not seem to work anymore.

Previously with Android 8.x and with ANT Radio Services and ANT+ Plugins Services
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...service.socket
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lugins.antplus
installed ANT+ support was working fine.

Used this daily with Garmin HeartRate, cadence monitors and Wahoo Kickr indoor trainer.
Now after Android 9 update, ANT+ not working at all.

Can anybody confirm or even suggest a fix?

Tried usual reboots, uninstall, re-install,.... no joy.

Additionally tried soft reset (power off the phone, then hold volume up key and power button at the same time until it shows twice Android Logo) as instructed by Nokia support.... no joy.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Kassu

Thanks for the reply.
No, I was using the older versions from Google Play Store.
Anyhow, I updated to the versions from github and it is still not working :-(

This is what ANT Tester App shows;

Unfortunately, I did not check with ANT Tester and do not have a screen shot of that with the previous Android 8.x SW, where ANT+ was working fine.
Anyhow, "Built-in firmware: No" and "ANT HAL service: Not found" are worrying to me.
Is this an indication that the new radio firmware that has been most likely installed with the Android 9 update did not include firmware support for ANT?

Any suggestions how to get this sorted out?

In meanwhile I also tried factory reset, but that just resetted all user data, Android 9 stayed active and ANT not working.

Build-in firmware: No
ANT HAL: Not found
ANT HAL service: Not found

I'm lost here. The Phone did support ANT before Android 9 update.

Try going to "Settings > Apps > ANT Radio Service > Permission > Additional permissions" and make sure "use ANT hardware" is enabled.
