Release notes - Blancco 5 Mobile 2.4

Features

  • Label printing layout editor. Customized layouts can be created for label printing. It is possible to specify the data and format of data that is shown on the label. Layouts can also be exported and imported.
  • Slot view. New view where devices can be organized flexibly with 'snap to grid'.
  • Enhanced custom fields. Dropdown and check box can be used in custom fields.
  • Search in Reports view. Search reports by using for example IMEI code or serial number.

Bug fixes

  • The term ‘Blacklisted’ changed to ‘Not supported’. This is because in many countries the term 'blacklisting' refers to a phone that is lost, stolen or ineligible.
  • Diagnostics fixes
    • Fixed temperature test failing for some iOS devices
    • Fixed retesting the failed tests from Test Report
    • Fixed wrong image orientation in camera test on Android 6 devices
  • Misc Android fixes
    • If Google account exists on the device and it cannot be deleted, B5M prompts the user to delete the account. Erasure continues after account has been removed manually. This process applies to Android 6 and newer.
    • Fixed Motorola Admiral erasure failing because B5M couldn’t detect that erasure/factory reset had ended
  • Misc iOS fixes
    • After accepting trust on the device, the device appears much faster in ’Connected’ state. Accepting the trust is only required for running diagnostics, for erasure it is not needed.
    • Fixed device identifier pop-up not always appearing although configured in Settings (Query identifier at connect)
    • Fixed iPhone erasure failing in DFU mode. It is still a known problem that iPhone 5S erasure fails if in DFU mode. The same problem with iPhone 5S exists with iTunes.
