    Goodevening, i have a minix neo u1.

    I saw today from play store that have lot of app like facebook, chrome, etc. that need to update. I check on play store settings and autoupdate is setted on.

    why it not autoupdate?

    I use an ethernet connection and wifi off. Maybe should be it the problem? Because for example if i use eurosport app onlyy with ethernet it not work saying that i am not connected

    regards

    Its possibly because you are connected via Ethernet. The solution is just to open Playstore, go to MyApps and Update All.

    This is the only solution???

    Android havn't an auto update option for who the Ethernet connection???

    So if it's true i can't sue Eurosport app because it not understand that i am connected by Ethernet??

    I can't believe that

    Firstly you are talking about two different issues.
    1. Apps that don't auto-update when connected with Ethernet
    2. Apps that don't run when connected with ethernet
    In regards to point 2, some apps don't recognize Ethernet connections. this is usually because the app developers expect the app to be used on a phone/tablet with either a wifi or phone network connection.
    I don't know if the Eurosport app falls into this category, but one thing you can try is to switch on the Fake-Wifi option.

    Yes apre two different things but both caused from same reason: they don't understand that are connetted throw ethernet

    There are no standard solution to auto update app using Ethernet in Android?!

    That's something you'd need to ask Google :) I have no idea why android apps don't recognize Ethernet connections other than what I already posted

    I'm on a U9-H atm but assuming that the settings are the same, go to settings, network, Faked Wifi Status

    For some apps it will appear as if you are using a wifi connection even though you are using an ethernet connection

    Are you talking about minix settings or advanced settings?

    Anyway on minix settings under network i have only:
    - Wi-Fi on/off
    - Ethernet: connected
    - vpn
    - samba server

    And in advanced settings i can't find anything that seem it

    Select Ethernet and then you will see Faked wifi status.

    Which firmware does your U1 have?
    Faked wifi was added with FW005. We are now at FW013.

    I don't know?
    Personally I turn off auto updates because if an app auto-updates and suddenly stops working one is not necessarily aware of why?!
    I check for Play Store updates periodically and before updating I make sure I have an .apk backup of the previous version of the app which makes rolling back to a previous version so simple.
