Hello sailors,

Since yesterday afternoon, aurora store stop working :-( Yes we have this closed question : https://together.jolla.com/question/219103/cannot-login-at-aurora-store-v315-anymore/ But in this case, it seems that the API is "broken". I saw nothing on the github pages of this app. So now it is impossible to update android apps :-( Have you the same problem that me ? Thanks for your help

[edit] : i am on 3.2.9 version. Install & update with FDroid. I used the "anonymous" account. Without microG

I usually get updates from F-droid for the Aurora store. In the past whenever there were issues with Aurora store, a couple of days later an update was available via F-droid so let's see. I also can't access the Aurora store since yesterday. In my case it gets stuck in the Logging In step (Anonymous account) and although it returns a "Logged In" message eventually, it doesn't really log-in.

This is nothing Sailfish OS / Jolla related. It also stopped working on Android devices. This is an issue with Aurora Store since the used Token Dispenser is down. Also sometimes Aurora Store stopps working because Google tries to block access to their store via 3rd party app.

Usually the developers fix such issues within days. Visit their Telegram group where you can ask questions and find more informations + workarounds: https://t.me/AuroraSupport

Thanks for this answered. That's what I feared I stay tuned and may be an update in the next days ;-)

@mips_tux Let's hope so :) Sometimes the developer publishes alpha testing-releases on the Telegram channel.

I am using 3.2.9 and it shows me apps and four updates available as I write this.

I did, however, have a weird issue with searching, which wouldn't work via WLAN nor 4G, not after aliendalvik restart, but only after powerdown and restart. So, have you tried turning it off and on again? :) (I suspect its the kernel leaking memory causing it but no way to test it further...)

No issue, working fine.

No issues on my side either

I reboot my XA2 - h3113 (monosim), and did nothing : impossible to connect. So, i choose in parameters the alternative provider of tokens. And now Aurora works. I tried yesterday the same choice with no chance, but without reboot. And without the alternative provider of tokens, the app is unable to connect :-(

So i don't know if i can closed my question ;-) I think that we must wait.

Started working for me a few hours ago, no change from my side, whatever was the problem it was on Aurora's side and it is now fixed. (XA2, Aurora 3.2.9 - Anonymous Login)

Yes ! Actually ! I closed my question... until the next problem ;-) Thanks a lot at all for all your answers and comments

@mips_tux Works for me again. Looks like they could solve it. Next time I would directly ask in the Aurora Store support channels, since the issue is not related to Jolla or Sailfish OS.
