Weblink mobile wln-an1 w/S8

Post by beegbie »

Having trouble getting this going. Samsung S8 with android 7.0 comes up with a communication error. I'm using a micro usb to usb-c adapter. Is anyone else using this setup?

First world problems... Android 7.0 (Nougat) has not been validated as of yet, so there is no support for any attempt to use the WLM-AN1 in that application. I would estimate another couple months before 7.0 is validated and confirmed compatible, as we are currently in the process of updating the AN1 operating firmware, which should include addressing the unknown compatibility with the latest versions of the Android OS.

I'm using this and have had zero issues. I am using the adapter that came with the phone. I have the S8+.

Very interesting. I'm happy to hear it. I'm going to try another cable and another phone and report back. Jay, did you have to enable developer options and change any usb settings or did it work out of the box?

I always turn that on on every android phone as I like to tinker with the operating systems and such. As far as the other settings everything was transferred from my old phone VIA Samsung smart switch.

Which adapter is this? Sorry, just got an S9 and can't get it to work. Been using my old S7 edge to flash mobile.
