Aux out not working on VF Smart Ultra 6 after Marshmallow update

[ Edited ]

Since updating my aux out will not work to my car radio. Headphones are still fine, it just the Aux.

It's a bit strange that one works but not the other. Anyone have any ideas/fix?

Without knowing the specific device or the specific os version there's no way we can help you.

It s Vodafone Smart Ultra 6, I thought I'd put it in the title! I have edited that now.Android Version 6.0.1.

It's something to do with the fact that aux jacks have 2 rings whereas my headphone jack has 3. I think.The third ring is for mic.

Several people on boards.ie have the same problem.

Same problem here. plug in a headset and it's fine but doesn't work with an aux cable.  Also the WiFi Tether keeps turning off on its own.

Re: Aux out not working on VF Smart Ultra 6 after Marshmallow update

I would like to downgrade/restore to lolipop now; as this 'upgrade' is causing more problems than any obvious benefit.

We already have the aux cable issue.

There is also the issue of not being able to move apps to the SD card.

I can't format my SD card to use as internal storage either.

Battery life has actually got worse

I'm really annoyed that I updated as i normally wait to see  what the fall-out is.

Can Vodafone tell me if there is any planned fix for all of these issues or another update?

That's all well and good Ashling but was there no testing done before the release? I expect that there was and it was released anyway.

I am particulalrly concerned about the SD Card issue as I think this is by design rather than by accident.

The Aux cable issue is very inconvenient but perhaps no the end of the world but 3 ring connectors aren't readily available. Your own stores do not stock them for example.

 An update of this kind with scant regard for the impact to users and paying customers, is downright disrepsectful.

No wonder people root their phones and leave the network.

I can assure you that full testing was carried out before this update was released, I have advised our updates team on the issues you are experiencing and they are currently investigating this, if it is found that the problems you are experiencing are related to this recent update, we will work on having a fix released.

 

Thanks,

Ashling

Thanks Ashling.

If full testing was carried out though, why are people having these issues? Of course it is related to the update; are you seriously suggesting it isn't? It's not just me experiencing the issues. As you already know, this is widespread.

 However,I appreciate you are just an interlocutor here and thank you for passing on the feedback.

I have faith in both you and Vodafone to do the right thing.Smiley Indifferent

Thanks for all the updates VF! I suppose if you ignore it, people will eventually get tired of complaining and lose interest.

As I have mentioned in my previous post, any issues that have been flagged relating to this update have been sent directly to the relevant team to be investigated, as we have not yet been updated on the progress of this testing, I am unable to provide you with further details.

 

As soon as I have any news, I will keep you posted.

 

Thanks,

Re: Aux out not working on VF Smart Ultra 6 after Marshmallow update

Hello,

 

Is there any update on this yet. The AUX has also stopped working for me, and it is probably the most useful function of my phone as I drive a lot and listen to Spotify and podcasts. To me this is a fault and I will report it as so.

 

Thanks
