hi. I have problem with galaxy tab 2 10.1. I run the command targetupdater and I go through the installation of android device. everything is ok except verification. matlab builds a TestApp on device and the first two steps are ok. I mean Building App and Running App. but the third one, Testing connection, can not be done. the device and laptop are connected to the same network. the error is:"Testing Connection.Could not detect the TestApp running on your device. Ensure that your device screen is unlocked and you can see the TestApp running." thanks for helping!

Can you try to keep the device screen 'on' throughout the verification process (all 3 steps)? My guess is that the device display may be timing out and going to sleep during the first two steps.

Can you provide more details on the device and Android version you are using? Also, is your device screen unlocked throughout the verification process?

Unfortunately, Android 6 support was added in R2016b. You should still be able to deploy models to Android 6 devices with R2016a. However, External mode will not work. I would recommend upgrading MATLAB to R2016b if possible.

Hello, facing similar porblem.
I was trying to configure my Android device with Matlab support package installer but facing few problems. During verification of configurations Testing connections is getting failed (After building and running app). I am able to see the TestApp open in my mobile and both are connected on same wifi network, but IP address shown on TestApp is bit different with IP address of PC. can any one help me out knowing this stuff?
