All working perfectly on my OnePlus8 running Android 13.1

Both LibreLink and xdrip running happily together with xdrip supplying data to the Oppo watch running wear OS.

XDrip used to work for me ithe the MM & L1? Then it got complicated with the L2. & the OOP2apk malarkey..
But there are some really clever boffins out there that DIY with Abbott. I’m a member on GitHub.
They leave me in the dust….

I now use Juggluco to talk to the sensor (and provide 1 minute data) and feed that to XDrip+ (without needing OOP2 any more), it just needs Juggluco to be set to emulate the patched libre app, and thereby provide the data to XDrip+

Yep, the OOP2 apk with xDrip was problematic for me on my older phone. Loved xDrip with MM & Libre 1.

I did use Diabox as a patch for xDrip but didn’t see the point in running 3 CGM apps in tandem. (Including librelink.)
I tried Juggluco when it first got developed. Took another look at it whilst sorting the BT issue.
I personally wasn’t impressed with the interface & the panoramic mode opening the app.
XDrip (has some great features) became a little bloated as an app. & I can’t understand how the developers never achieved a direct set up from the sensor like juggluco or Diabox…
I believe Dexcom sensors can link directly to xDrip.

I'm also not keen on the Juggluco screen, so I never look at it aside from when I pair a sensor, I always look at the XDrip+ display.

Agreed that XDrip+ has taken on lots of functionality, it would IMO be better to separate functionality out into different apps so that replacements for different aspects are easier to develop and integrate into a "system" (e.g. food tracking, BG prediction, calibration.)

I will eventually get around to finishing an app to handle some part of the functionality, but life gets in the way (and Google/Android change their API/recommendations quite often and it's then back to trying to work out how to move to the new flavour!)

Hey!
I’ve literally been having the same issue. However, luckily for me the issue was solved with turning my phone off and on again.
I have an iPhone and use the Libre 2 sensor with the Libre app. These Bluetooth connection issues started to mess up after I had updated my phone, but not sure what the correlation is there.

I called Abbotts customer support and told them about my experience. They said they are going to send me a new one out in the post, and I will need to send them my current sensor so they can do some tests on it.

I would always advise speaking to their customer service, and when they ask about your experience “dramatising” it a little bit otherwise they do not take it seriously (from my experience).

I hope you find some answers, it’s sooo frustrating. Sending you all the luck in hopes you get it sorted x
