TC55 Operating System GSM non-GMS BSP 01.45.00 Release Notes


TC55 is a ruggedized device based on Android for the enterprise market that blends the capabilities of a smart phone with those of a traditional enterprise PDA.
TC55 has a number of enterprise-grade features, including a touch-screen that can be used with gloves, support for stylus input for signatures, barcode capture capability and IP67 rating for dust and water protection.

It also features Extensions (MX) to make the Android operating system more enterprise ready, with security enhancements and hooks for device management tools, and is designed for a longer lifecycle than the typical smart phone.
TC55 is designed in response to customer feedback from using consumer-grade smart phones in the workplace, especially with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, where employees use their own choice of device for work.

With TC55 the workers can capture practically any type of data — from bar codes and signatures to photos, videos and NFC — improving on the job efficiency and customer service. The screen is optimized for Enterprise viewing, helping ensure the battery lasts a full shift.
And with a drop, tumble and environmental sealing specification you can count on, it has the durability required to serve your field workers for years.

Known issues, Tips and Workarounds



Image update in recovery mode using automatically reboots the device (114339)

This is normal behavior.

·   Charging may fail on the first attempt (rarely) the LED will blink red quickly to indicate this (114388)

·   Connecting a unit with a dead battery to a charger (rarely) does not turn on (115212)

To recover, reinsert the charger.

Charging a deeply-discharged battery will cause the LED to blink red slowly… this is normal and can last up to 8 minutes until the normal charging green LED is seen (114428)

This is normal behavior.

Scanner/camera does not enable after restore of Datawedge (113726)

To recover, select a Datawedge profile after the restore operation.

Unable to delete contents of physical SD card using SOTI (113663)

To workaround, here are two methods to wipe the SD card with SOTI:

·   Automated remote: create a policy to tell SOTI to wipe the physical SD card

·  Manual remote: remote control to the device and manually erase the SD card

Audio streaming using a browser stopswhen the back button is pressed and restarts when some another video file is played from SD card and stopped (114513)  

To workaround, when using audio streaming in a browser, press

stop or pause before pressing the back button.

USB printing on a ZebraMZ220 doesn’t

work (100574)

This printer is not supported by Android.

Using the SMS shortcut feature of the

phone call log to create an SMS message will fail if the number is not in the contact list.

To workaround, add the number to your contact list.

After inserting a T-mobile SIM (rarely)

data service cannot be obtained (115307)

To recover, turn Airplane Mode On/Off.

Note: this is a T-mobile network issue.

For a mixed deployment comprising

broadcast and hidden SSID’s, the device cannot connect to a hidden SSID if the profile was added manually by selecting a broadcast SSID listed in "WiFi" Settings Page.(114289)

To workaround this problem, there are two solutions:

1.    Manually add the profile using the “Add network” option (Click on “+” in “WiFi” Settings Page)

2.     To configure programmatically, use

the wifiConfiguration class to create a profile that has the hidden SSID field parameter set to true. Here is a code sample to do this:

import; WifiConfiguration configuration = new WifiConfiguration(); configuration.hiddenSSID = true;
