Hello. It is a very good package, also for educational purposes.
I wander if S4 Mini requires a different connection setup with respect to S4.
The 'test connection' with my Galaxy S4 Mini fails, nevertheless the device model and its IP are correctly discovered.
Then the 'Filtering Sensor Data' example does not work (it uses external simulation mode) while the 'Sensor application' model (which is deployed to hardware) works correctly.

Thanks Brian, but I couldn't find neither "Download from Internet" nor "Install from folder" option in the support package installer! Could you please help me find these options?

02 Oct 2014 Brian McKay

@Da Bu: Yes, select the "Download from Internet" option in the Support Package Installer. Copy that folder (location for me is C:\MATLAB\SupportPackages\R2014a\downloads\android_download) to a thumb drive and then you can install on another machine using the "Install from folder" option (again found in the Support Package Installer).

Note: For this Support Package there are additional installation steps that require internet access - you can review the documentation for details: http://www.mathworks.com/help/simulink/ug/install-support-for-samsung-galaxy-android-devices.html

Is there a step by step guide to install this hardware support package on a PC which is couldn't connect to internet?
I mean could 3rd party softwares be downloaded seperatly and then configure the package with some commands or additional files?

The package was successfully installed on windows 7. All the examples work for both Galaxy S4 and Nexus 5 phones. In case of Nexus 5 you need to select 'Galaxy Note' in the 'targetupdater' wizard.

I can confirm that the package is working for accelerometers using a Note 3, android 4.4.2 and Windows 7. I previously had an issue with the Java JDK. I didn't get the "Test Connection" to work on installation, but just ignored that and tried a simulation.

I'm having trouble passing the installation "Test Connection". I see my device (Note 3), but fail the test. My IP looks correct. Do you have any troubleshooting tips.

For those with issues seeing your device in Windows, it takes a long time for Windows to install the Galaxy drivers. If I recall, there were 4 drivers needed for my Note 3. After those were installed, then I could see my device listed after pressing refresh.

If you're not sure about drivers, I noted an icon with activity showing in the taskbar display indicating that drivers were being located.

Hi Brian,
thanks for the response. Just to clarify:
I have selected the Device type (tried with choosing the Tab 2 and the S4); the problem occurs 4 screens later ("Connect your device and install app") where the device simply doesn't show up (despite pressing "Refresh" several times).

27 Mar 2014 Brian McKay

Hi @Reto and @Henrik,

If your device isn't showing, choose "Select Tablet" device type and follow instructions from there.

27 Mar 2014 Henrik

I have got the same problem as Reto: my device doesn't show up in the List of devices.
I have tried this with a Galaxy S and a Galaxy Note 10.1. The Galaxy S showed up once, but I haven't been able to get it to appear again.
The devices show up in Device Manager, and I can connect to them with adb.
Any suggestions?

Hello, I tried to install it following this directions http://www.mathworks.ch/ch/help/simulink/ug/install-support-for-samsung-galaxy-android-devices.html but my device doesn't show up on the list in step 8. What could be the problem?

I'm using Windows 8.1 and a Galaxy s4 running 4.4.2.

Hello Hans,

We believe it will work on any Samsung Galaxy Android device, assuming they are running Android 4.3 or 4.4.

However, we have only done full testing on the Galaxy S4 and Tab 2 10.1.

Note: It is possible that this Support Package will also work on non-Samsung Android devices - I had it running on my Google Nexus 7 (2013) tablet. My Nexus 7 test model only used the screen and accelerometer; so I cant confirm if all the IO will work for any particular device.

Please download and try the Support Package - and let us know if you were successful.

Hi there,

excellent package.

Does this package support also other Galaxy Device such as Galaxy Note 3 or
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Hello Kitty?

Or are only Galaxy S4 and Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 10.1?
