I can't toggle any setting in the advanced settings in this version. Tried on a Motorola G5.

Even connected an external mouse and keyboard, but no luck. With some trying I can expand the + signs, but clicking on an individual setting doesn't do anything.

After you select the setting you then need to click the Edit button.

Ah, that does the trick. It's very counter-intuitive though. You'd expect a tap, or maybe long-press, to make it go into edit mode.

Also it's extremely hard to hit the + signs with a finger on the touch screen (on an average size phone). I have to click *left* of the plus sign or exactly on it, to make it open. It would be more logical if clicking on the text would expand it as well.

So some usability tweaking seems in order :-) though it's probably more of an irrlicht problem than a minetest problem.

Still it works very nicely on my moto G5.

the 3D graphics modes don't all work though. I wanted to try side-by-side mode in my el-cheapo cardboard-vr but no dice.
-Anaglyph 3d works as expected.
-Interlaced 3d leaves the top half of the screen greyish and draws a squashed image in the bottom half.
-Top-bottom mode creates a black screen, except for the topmost line of pixels, which is white.
-Side-by-side mode creates a black screen, except for the leftmost line of pixels, which looks like it *does* get rendered to. If I sweep on the screen it looks like a single column of pixels is rendered correctly 0in the leftmost position.

There is an open issue for this and it is something I intend to look into when I get time. Cardboard-vr is something I would like to get working now that I have a suitable phone, though it is unlikely to be done before MT 5.0.0 (unless someone else fixes it)

Thank you everyone for your feedback, please remember to report any non-installation related problems on the Minetest github issue tracker as they are unlikely to get much attention from the developers here.

---First_Impressions(ConnectingAndroidtoWindows)_mt_raj_1---
---------------- My Question
Raj asks:
Can dev apk 5.0 version connect to local Windows or Linux servers? Has anyone tried?

---loading4.16worldinto5.0apk_mt_raj_2---
---------------- My Question
Raj asks:
Did I exceed a mod "limit" when attempting to run android tablet as a server using .apk 5.0?

---using4.16.Apk&InterestingCPU/processorProblems_mt_raj_3---
---------------- My Question
Raj asks:
Why did selecting "powersave" instead of "pegasusq" processor settings improve stability. Just under clocking CPU alone does not help.

---using4.16.Apk&InterestingCPU/processorProblems_mt_raj_3.1---
*in-process*
---------------- My Question
Raj asks:
Why does upgrading to MT.ver5.0.dev and selecting Ogles2 for video driver solve virtually all my previous note8 tablet crashes? Are there bugs?

---using5.0.dev.Apk&PasswordScreen_mt_raj_?---
---------------- My observation.
Raj says:
When I was first attempting connection to local server games and even the server device itself when hosted via tablet, I kept getting the password screen. You know the ,"You are about to join a server for the first time...please retype your password and click register..."

---Android&WindowsPC_lanResults_mt_raj_10---
---------------- My Objective
Test Android to Windows operation.
