Blancco Mobile 2.6.1 has been released!
Posted by Antti Päivinen on 03.06.2014 14:43

Blancco Mobile 2.6.1 has been released.

Release notes for Blancco Mobile version 2.6.1

  • Added a learning message box that indicates to the user to set Android devices to the proper USB mode before the erasure can begin. Now the erasure process cannot be started if one of the device memories is mounted to Windows as an MSC or MTP device. Please check the instructions from the manual on pages 33 and 34.
  • Added a method for checking that device memories are not mounted exclusively to the Windows-side.
  • Fixed bugs relating to some LG Android devices as well as the Huawei P6 Android device.
  • Fixed an issue related to the Blancco Mobile Custom Android driver in which it removes the already installed Android driver during updates.
  • Added initial support for Lumia Windows Phone 8.X R&R and Erasure. R&R works also with Lumia Windows Phone 7.5.
  • Erasure works only with Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices.
  • Reading the Lumia Windows Phone IMEI is supported only on Lumia Windows Phone 8.X devices. If reading of the IMEI is not working, then uninstalling and installing Lumia Windows Phone drivers can fix the issue. There is some device driver-side issue that prevents reading the IMEI. (If IMEI support for WP 8.X devices does not work, try to remove all drivers of that current problem device 'vid_0421 and pid_0661 (pid (ProductID) might be different)' and let Windows install them again (WindowsPortableDevices and USB-Composite device).)
  • Updated essadi.apk to the version 10.4.2014.
  • Updated ClearAppData23.apk to the version 10.4.2014.
  • Updated swlib to the version 13.5.2014 and Android erasure clients to the version 2.0.41 and 2.2.43.
  • Added new accessories selections to the Device info dialog.
  • Added a keyboard shortcut CTRL+E for the Erase All button. When using a barcode scanner, please use CODE39 barcode with the text *$AM05E*. NOTE: Make sure the barcode scanner can read CODE39 barcodes properly for using this feature. TAB separator is recommended. Please check the instructions from the manual on page 37.
  • Added a keyboard shortcut CTRL+F to fill mandatory or mistakenly filled editable field values in the main UI. When using a barcode scanner, please use CODE39 barcode with the text *$AM05F*. Please check the instructions from the manual on page 37.
  • Added a keyboard shortcut CTRL+T to fill editable field values in the main UI. When using the barcode scanner, please use CODE39 barcode with the text *$AM05T*. Please check the instructions from the manual on page 36.
