I’m still struggling with some connectivity issues, but have never been able to really put a finger on them, yet.
- Push messages in general are one of the issues I observed.
- The other one was that this stocks widget app (Stocks Widget | F-Droid - Free and Open Source Android App Repository) wasn’t able to pull new information from Yahoo
The weird thing: Those issues only occur while I’m in my wifi. When connected through 4G, etc. it works.
Now you’d think “ok, then it must be my home firewall.” But my other phone with a stock ROM and some of the same apps don’t have those problems. And when switching off iode filtering, it also worked at home via wifi.
Let’s focus on the stocks problem. Since the yahoo address must be on some generic blacklist, I had whitelisted the address for that stocks app. Connection failed as indicated (in German) in the upper right corner of the first two screenshots:
Here’s the “log” from iode which says it was supposedly allowed (but the app couldn’t download):
Now I unauthorized it again for that single app in order to generally authorize it for all apps:
Don’t have the success screenshot at hand right now. But it worked only if allowed for all apps.
I haven’t written a widget app myself, yet. Maybe the connection attempts leave with some different source package name. Just a theory.
But I was able to reproduce this: When authorizing the Yahoo address for the stocks app only, it wouldn’t work. I had to generally allow it. That’s not how it’s supposed to work, isn’t it?
BTW: There’s a typo in German. Should be “weniger als eine Minute zuvor”.
