Recently uploaded a new APK for W.A.R. II only to discover that it now supports exactly 0 devices. This even after I installed the APK on my own devices running Marshmallow and Nougat.
After e-mailing Google Support who did not identify anything specific in the manifest, I decided to add
and remove android:required = true from
Now the W.A.R. app supports 11268 devices.

Now I need to root the device in order to run Kali Linux. I also want to root, because I am a control freak.
Here are the steps assuming you already have ADB and Fastboot installed on your PC.
For kicks you may also want to visit the Asus support site for additional software tools.

I am writing a calendar app that will listen for clicks on dates and drive the remainder of the app's functions by date and user.
The reason I am posting this is that my fragments replaced the main activity okay on a Lollipop device, but not on Marshmallow
After many hours of frustration, I happened to tilt the Marshmallow phone just enough to have the external light source reveal that the fragment was indeed present on the main activity, but BEHIND IT. This was not readily detected because the backgrounds are the same color and size while the main activity layout was 100% opaque. It was my elevation shadow that showed another layer beneath the main activity
Shazam!!! This fixed that problem:
This may not be proper form, but I don't care as I must push on and build the server application to the mobile. Meanwhile, here are some screen shots of the actual source code that I built and compiled directly on a Samsung Tablet with AIDE.
Aha...the all important build.gradle file
