1. Unplug and plug custom board. Make sure that it has power.

2. Check tablet settings. Disable Kiosk MODE by (pressing the power button twice and then the volume + button once) or sending sms command: DISABLE Kiosk-mode

  • Enable android bluetooth & Location/GPS
  • Open Fox Eloader App menu (top-right), and tap Connect to Machine
  • Wait for the device with bluetooth name “Fox-xxxxx”
  • On the devices list, tap “Fox-xxxx” and connect.
  • Wait for at least 1-2 minutes for the tablet to connect to the esp32.

3.If the above steps didn’t work, unplug & plug the custom board and restart the android tablet.

4. If the “Fox-xxxxx” device didn’t show up in the devices list after tapping “Connect to Machine”, try to reflash esp32.
