Angry issue with tasker and verizon S3 (4.1.1). help (pics)

First I will tell you what is working.

I am able to set time based events. (i.e. between 11pm and 5am turn off sound)
I am also able to place icons on the home screen for certain tasks (i.e. turn Wi-Fi off)

Now my problem is I followed a guide to email a photo when 2 incorrect patterns are entered. This will only work if I run it from within Taskers app. The other is one that will keep the display from shutting off when the keyboard is opened. The screen will still time out.


Am I missing something? Do I need to have some other options enabled for these tasks to run?

(im not rooted)

thats the thread i followed. i installed all the stuff (python, secure settings). it does work when i run it from within the tasker app but nowhere else.

they keyboard task is still not working as well. it will only work if i run it from within the tasker app also. i set it from time out screen in 10min. when i run it within the app it will change the setting but if im outside the app and pull up the keyboard(swype) it will not remain on.

Try testing the secure settings context. Eliminate the complicated task and just set a pop up alert . I'm suggesting this because you say it runs within tasker, so it sounds to me like your context might not be firing

Use the same one your trying to get running. The "secure setting missed pin X 2 " context. Test that out live but change the task to just simply set a pop up alert

I'm not sure. I'm sure you could google some information on setting up secure settings.

hey sorry for the late reply was busy for the last few days had a lot of issues with my phone. I was just checking my profile and i seem to have some differences to yours. Attached a screenshot. Followed the below link to create the profile.

http://tasker.wikidot.com/automatically-take-and-email-your-photo

For the second query for keyboard open found a wiki for it

LockWhenOpen - Tasker Wiki

thats very strange i used the guide i linked and it works great. there is a slight difference between that and the guide posted by SURoot. Not sure what the exact difference is maybe he could have a look and help.

Its nothing to do with Python etc. If the task runs manually, we can forget all that. Its literally the trigger we need to look at.

I can only really suggest that you check in Secure Settings > Options > Conditions > "Failed login Attempts" is enabled.

It may be that it wont work on your phone. If its enabled, maybe email the SS dev

i have tried to uninstall SL4a r4 and installed SL4a r6. this did not help. i am not sure what is going on still. how do i get a hold of the SS dev? i loaded the profile that you uploaded in the other thread and it wont work as well. this task and the screen on when keyboard open run fine manually.


EDIT: with SL4a r6 i would get emailed failed when sending. i had to go back to r4.

Ok I tried using the context of opening a game to run the intruder task and it worked. So its a secure settings issue. I tried to uninstall and reinstall with the same results. Im running the latest beta of tasker with sl4a r5 and all permissions given. Maybe I need to root my phone for it to work.for now I give up. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Could try the same thing with Tasker. He always responds... It may not be an issue his side, but he may have an idea. Shame about SS dev
