    For reasons uknown, My galaxy s5 won't detect my drone on the DJI go app. I'm pretty sure this is an android marshmallow porblem.
    I have reinstalled firmware, downgraded it. reformatted sd card several times, relinked my controller, reset the wifi, redownloaded the app. Nothing works but for ios it works fine.
    Someone please help, i want to try and fix this before i have to send it back to dji for repair.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    If ios is working its not the Phantom. The remote control produces your signal that your mobile connects to. You don't need phantom powered on.
    If your galaxy can't see the signal? and ios does, then it is not the problem with the (remote / phantom).
    Is this the actual problem, or can the galaxy see the WiFi signal, but just can't connect?

    If my memory serves, right after the Marshmallow update, people were reporting that they had to turn something on....developer mode or something?
