Hi. I have an ASUS ZenFone Zoom smartphone (Intel Z3580 CPU quad-core 2.3GHz) but at the moment I can only help SETI research. Can you tell me when you will add an app for x86 Android devices?

Hi Alessio,
Thanks for your interest!
Presently sixtracktest has an app versions for ARM and android - but it is a test exe, so we don't provide (yet) pro executables.
Coming soon and stay tuned!

We can run on android devices, see sixtracktest here: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/apps.php

Currently there are two issues:

1: The ram usage of sixtrack is relatively high - almost all internal arrays are allocated with a fixed size at compile time, and set to a "worst case" capacity. A lot of android devices just do not have sufficient spare ram. Work is in progress to re-structure the internals to reduce the memory usage and only allocate what is needed.

2: The security model in the current android release has restricted the usage of some syscalls, and we seem to use some of the restricted ones. This needs to be changed.

Once both of these issues have been resolved, we can push the android version out to production.

Can we get an update on the ARM Sixtrack application?

My tablet has been waiting since I got it...
