I am about 1 month into my Sharptools “tenure” and I think I’ve got some pretty neat yet simple dashboards set up that meet my needs. I am using brand new Fire 8 tablets to run the dashboards however I am running into an issue where there is slow response when going from dashboard to dashboard on the devices. After searching these forums and other online resources, here are the following things that I’ve tried:
- Installed Fully directly from their website specifically the APK for fire tablets (did not load GooglePlay or root the device)
- Followed the instructions here to set up Fully Set Up
Immediately on first use, I experienced the delay when going from dashboard to dashboard.
I then found another resource online that setting up the WiFi connection via DHCP. I then set up a static IP for the tablet using DHCP and DNS servers 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and set these settings in my router. I even prioritized the tablets as high priority in the Asus router settings.
I did not see any improvement in speed.
Next, I tried using solid color backgrounds instead of the editor pick images and no improvement.
Lastly, I used the Firebox Toolbox V7.1 to disable amazon apps, upload Nova Launcher and Swift keyboard. I did not download GooglePlay services but continued using Fully.
The tablet itself is noticeably faster (going to settings, and back to Fully) But once in Fully, Im still experiencing slow load times between dashboards.
When accessing the dashboards from my iPhone, I noticed the switch between each one is almost instant (with no lag). Is there something I may be missing here? Or have I maxed out all possible solutions to the Fire Tablet and maybe my expectations are a little too high? I started with 2 fire tab 8’s and was looking to expand maybe to 2 additional fire 10’s. However, if this is the speed I’ll be experiencing, I’m wondering if I need to get ready to cough up some extra $$ to go to Galaxy Tab A’s
Any help is appreciated!
