Blancco 5 Mobile version 2.3 has been released!
Posted by Sami Purho on 24.03.2016 08:34

Features

  • Better Android support. Android support has been improved. Android erasure is now supported from Android 2.0 onwards.
  • iPad mini 3 support. If firmware update is not possible for an iOS device, it can be erased without firmware update using ‘overwriting only’. Currently the only model where this approach can be used is iPad mini 3.
  • Admin mode. Administrator can define what each user is allowed to do. Admin password is needed to define user rights and to unlock settings. Admin can also export user settings and import them in other workstations.
  • Query device-specific custom fields when connected. It is possible to define which device specific custom fields are queried when devices are connected.
  • MEID support. MEID (mobile equipment identifier in CDMA networks) is supported in the user interface and in reports.
  • Storage clean-up. It’s easier to monitor the disk space usage from settings panel and delete the iOS firmware images that are not needed. New icon in status bar shows total storage size, free space and used space.
  • More label printers supported. DYMO LabelWriter 450 is supported.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed UI going to black screen when B5M is exited.
  • Fixed iPad Pro and iPad 2 diagnostics. The user interface now scales correctly to full screen.
  • Fixed extra fields sometimes missing in report after the erasure.
  • Fixed incorrect statistics when device is successfully erased after failed erasure.
  • Fixed report sending problems (occurred when several reports sent for the same device).
