Spider V Android Compatibility: Does Your Mobile Device Connect?

Recommended Posts

Hello All, I just wanted to throw this out there. Initially my Nexus 6p with Android Nougat 7 wasn't connecting or it was dropping the connection. I then downgraded, with no immediate success, to Android Marshmallow. Frustrated, I started messing around with the Developer Options which need to be unlocked. You can do this by going to Settings and somewhere you should see a Build Number option. Tap on this section 7 times to unlock. Then I enabled an option called "Disable USB audio routing" and tried connecting once again. It worked and has been working ever since. Now, I haven't tried to verify this by enabling USB audio routing because I'm a little gun-shy. I'm just glad it is now working...lol. I will give that a shot and update everyone soon. Also note that I'm not sure that every phone has the USB audio routing option either. However, it can't hurt to check your phone and see. Let me know if this works for you or not. Good luck!

I have a Galaxy s7, tried the above and it has worked fine for me.  Thanks

BlackBerry Keyone with Android 7.1.1

OTG adapter and USB A-B cable (USB printer cable)

 

Spider Remote App works, but only with the USB Audio Routing disabled.

 

Not sure if there is a way at this point to use the phone to play music via the USB connection.

Look up about 6 or so tellies in this thread. I wrote something in it that had worked for me and a couple others. Worth a shot. Good luck!

First things first, i have android 5.11 OS and it will not even download the spyder app from google play, saying android not compatible, but yet it's greater the 5.0 

My amp rattles, all the metal along the top of the speaker, super Cheapppppo 

 

So far i'm having major buyers remorse, going from a spider iv 75 with 300 great guitar tones, to a spider v240 with only 88 seems like stepping backwards, i can't BELIEVE there's no link between the flashing tap button and the speed of the drum patch. 

 

And why not throw some bluetooth for the android app when you already have it for the guitar remote?!?! this amp seems and feels like a rushed product, the only thing good about the amp so far is that it's light for it's size, but i'm suspecting that's cuz it has itty bitty speakers inside of it. 

 Most likely be returning it.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 with the OTA adapter included from Samsung.     Connects just fine with Oreo 8.0 installed from the latest update.

 

I did have to use the correct USB-B cable and ensure the switch was on Android in order for it to work correctly.

You're a genius!! This fix works for me (Samsung A5). App was utterly useless until I did that, freezing & disconnecting, even freezing my entire phone!

*Three Hours Later*

 

This was originally a big long post about how nothing worked.

 

Then I watched a youtube video where a person was demonstrating using host capabilities on an Android and they plugged the on the go cable directly into the phone . . . I had plugged it into the amp first, then the cord into the phone.

 

Okay, so this is probably PRETTY DANG STUPID . . . and I may be the only human being on earth that has ever made this mistake, but nevertheless, in case there is someone else out there who this is their first foray into the on the go cable and it just isn't working:

 

Step 1:

 

1. PLUG THE ON THE GO CABLE DIRECTLY INTO THE ANDROID PHONE, and THEN the regular android cable into that, and that into the amp. 

 

If that doesn't work, proceed to trouble shoot from there.
