    Hello,
    I have downloaded PowerVRSDKSetup-3.3.run-x64 to download the PVRTrace files
    But unfortunately PVRTrace.app is not found as mentioned in PVRTrace.User Manual.pdf

    2.3.4. Android
    Using PVRTraceSetup
    The PVRTraceSetup APK can be found in the following folder:
    PVRTraceRecorderInstaller

    Can you please help from where I can get the app ?

    Regards,
    Sankha

    Hi Sankha,

    Sorry to hear you’ve hit this issue. Which version of the User Manual were you referring to?
    There’s a known issue where our online documentation doesn’t match that in our latest SDK download. We should be able to rectify this issue soon.

    In the latest SDK, PVRTrace recording is done on Android devices using PVRHub (an improved version of PVRTraceApp that was in our previous releases).

    Unfortunately, we’ve also increased our Android minimum requirement to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0).

    Regards,
    Joe

    Hi Sankha,

    Can you share the logcat output with us? We’ve not encountered any issues with PVRHub on KitKat yet. It’s possible that the KitKat file system on the Pandaboard is set up differently than our tool expects.

    You can use the PVRHubDaemon system recovery tool to revert the state of your development board. The instructions for this can be found in Appendix A of the PVRHub User Manual.

    Regards,
    Joe
