I went back to DJI Fly App version 1.4.4. It seems OK! But I can't figure out why the right line on APAS icon is missing! Picture attached! Drone is MA2.  I am using Android!

Just as an aside,  the DJI Fly App is NOT firmware, it's an application. Firmware is software that runs specifically on the device for low-level controls in programmable memory.  They are two different things..

You also really need to define what version your using when discussing this, the IOS version as near as I can tell is working fine, and all the issues appear to be on the Android side, which for some reason, I am not surprised..  

I have  read there is a new "build" and this is a DJI problem, if DJI is going to release fixes for Fly for Android, they need to make it obvious, roll the # to 1.4.9 or have a it say 1.4.8.1 or something, not a build # that you cannot see until the app is installed and running..  reportedly the Current one is = 1120. The previous version 1116, which is probably the broken one..

•        Deleted the updated 1.4.8 DJI Fly app from my phone.  Completely uninstalled it.
•        Found the old APK file still living in my phone’s Download Folder.  It is dated May 28, so it is not too far out of date, and it is apparently DJI Fly Version 1.4.2.
•        The name of the APK file is:  1621409825498-DJI-v1.4.2-210517-1006-48011-official-sec.apk

Hi there, thanks for this info i have wound back to the same version as you and will give it a try asap and report back. Thanks again

Just uninstall the DJI Fly APP, and install an older version of it. Version 1.4.2 or 1.4.4 works fine for me.

Link for DJI Fly App Version 1.4.4 https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/dji-technology-co-ltd/dji-fly/dji-fly-1-4-4-release/

Link for DJI Fly App Version 1.4.2 https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/dji-technology-co-ltd/dji-fly/dji-fly-1-4-2-release/

Probably DJI will fix this soon!

After some weeks of bad weather and time constraints i updated today to 1.4.8 Build 1120 on my Galaxy S20 5G.
I did fly with my MA2 and Mini 2 two batteries each without any issues even up to 300m away and 50m hight.
The only glitches i expierenced was a for less than half a second in the video stream everytime an airplane was passing by.
I was flying close to the approach zone of a big airport which is 20km away from my home.
My conclusion is that the radar of the planes does interfere the 5GHz connection between the  drone and the RC.
Over all everything works as it should.
What i really appriciated is, that now the obstical avoidance warnings will be shown in the attitude indicator on the bottem left as a red line on the front or rear of the drone icon.

You are right.
But what is the most "stable" version?
Why does DJI not have official older versions so that one can download them?

Si que hay versión anterior estable, vais a https://www.dji.com/es/mobile/downloads/djiapp/dji-fly, y bajáis la versión beta la última en azul.

I had similar experience with very high flying Gripens of our army, a few glitches when I heard jet fighters operating (no visual contact) in my area. But 1.4.8 Android app works good with my Xperia phone. The only safety issue is lack of ADS-B, in Fly app as well as in hobby aircrafts equipment, as there are many planes and copters in air these days...

Where in the app can you see which build it is? I've been flying ok with mine. went up to 2.5km a few weeks ago while on 1.4.8Looking at the downloaded apk it does read 1120 in the file name. So I guess I do have the latest version. I renamed the previous downloads to just 1.4.2, 1.4.4 etc and I already downloaded one 1.4.8 version before but can't remember which build it was.

If you go to profile on the start screen (bottom, middel), then scroll down to settings and then scroll left side to the bottom, there you can find the version.
I hope the naming in the english version is the same, as i have translated it from the german version.

Well, I think we all still have older versions downloaded on our phones, in the "downloads" folder. Adleast I have them all, since they removed the app from google play store... Check your phone, if you did't delete them, they are still there.

Without latest update can DJI void insurance protection?

I am afraid of that too, they say they check if you had the latest version if you want to use dji care refresh... Not making sense, as the new version 1.4.8 is completely dangerous... freezes again and again...

Fly app does not run on the drone?  Only the smart device that the controller interfaces. either Smart Controller, Android device, or iOS device.  But no need to hook the drone to anything for the "fly app".  Updated Firmware was released back in April of 2021 that added support for the Air2S, but that is "Firmware" and that does go in the drone.  The fly app is only for the smart devices, not the drone.

Yeah I know lol
I don't know what I was thinking haha. For some reason when I wrote that, I thought it was a firware update. I just bought my drone so I did the firmware update just a few days before the 1.4.8 fly app update and my brain got mixed up haha.

1.4.8 is one of the buggiest pieces of software I've known and I started working life in 1979 as a trainee developer. Written & used lots of software across a lot of years and this is up there with the worst.

Not just crashing but losing control of photos mid-flight. Even the controller's photo button stops working.

Not sure I'm looking forward to another version but I've got 1.4.2 & 1.4.4 downloaded just in case

Hi Bob

I did exactly the same as you.  I'd been flying my Mini 2 with no problems usnig a Samsung A71 - until v1.4.8 came out.  I tried various changes to settings suggested by people here, but was still getting regular app crashes which is unacceptable.  DJI were no help, just saying that my A71 wasn't on the approved list and suggesting that I get another phone.  I found that I had v1.4.2 apk stored on the phone and after a particularly problematic app crash (flying out over the sea, app refused to re-boot) I flew back visually, deleted 1.4.8 and re-installed 1.4.2.  I'm now twenty flights down the line with no app crashes.  I think that 1.4.8 is seriously flawed and that DJI should not be offering it as it has flight safety issues.

All good, no worries, I was just making sure there was not a different issue outside the 1.4.8 FlyApp you were having that might have been firmware related, or something.  But I agree as everyone else does, full of bugs and the DJI App software QA needs to do a better job.

Same issues here. Galaxy S7 MA2.

Screen would freeze, If I took a photo it would freeze on the screen and the shutter might take 30 seconds to actually cycle. It seemed to fly somewhat ok, but was to afraid to try. Got up about 50' and had to bring it back. Simply unsafe to try to fly.

Thanks for links to old versions. I'm rolling back and that's the last time I will ever update simply because DJI post a new version.  This is totally unacceptable, dangerous, and unprofessional.

Same issues or worse.  App locks up all the time, including in the middle of intelligent flight modes.  Drone becomes unresponsive,  won't land, or stops in the middle of a routine.

This is unacceptable!  Please back off this development branch before Someone loses a drone or more people do since thus is a terrible state for safety. I keep rolling back to v1.4.4 or 1.4.2. I would like to stay there until Stability returns, but the App continues to re-install 1.4.8 and its getting really wearisome.

Please please please... fix the app so I am not afraid to fly it.

Hello.
Well I also have a problem with the 1.4.8 app, maybe not as critical, but still. A jerky video image on the screen. It doesn't matter if the distance is 10 meters or 2000 meters. Whether video or photo mode. Feeling that the video card is not working properly on the phone.
No problem returning to the 1.4.4 app!
We are careful!

I can confirm 1.4.8 is dangerous to use. I did a last test flight with the drone I'm selling and which flew fine when I just installed 1.4.8. When flying yesterday I just went 50 meters up and about 300 meters away. Suddenly my altitude, distance and speed indicator (as far as I could tell) froze. The only way to know how high I was, was through the video feed. Brought it down immediately and didn't fly again. MA2 is sold now so can't test anymore at the moment.

I do auto download on iphone.  I am on 1.4.8 DJI Fly.  Now my flight distance is very limited.  I could fly for 2000 feet in same location now I am limited to 600’ to 1000’.  The video feed is jerky as well.  I cannot see the screen very well with brightness turned up to max.  The phone heats up.  Called support, they said send the drone and controller in but it worked fine on earlier release.  Is this a ploy to get me to upgrade controllers?  I have a iPhone 12 Pro Max.  Auto download for Fly app.  I saw the link for older versions.  Can one use this for iphone or is this link for android only?

Does DJI read any of these posts?  
I have a DJI Mini2, 1.4.8 and latest firmware.  IOS phone 12 pro max 14.7.  
Issue, since 1.4.8:
Video feed is broken or freezes all the time.  I cannot fly more than 1000 feet and loose signal (anywhere).  What happened to 10k?  My display brightness goes very dim.  My phone heats up now; I do not charge phone.  Called support, they want me to send in the controller and drone to have a look.  It worked fine before.  Because I use iPhone I cannot revert to previous release.  I am reluctant to send in.  Support said there is a one month turnaround.  What now?  I am afraid to fly the drone.

For anyone having issues with the app version 1.4.8(1120) on Android, DJI sent me a new beta version of 1.4.8(1185) that I've been testing out today. So far it seems very solid. None of the issues I was having with build 1120 are present. No app crashes, master shots, quick shots, and hyperlapse all worked normally. Also had zero issues with subject selection for active track. No video breakup, black screens and no disconnects from the drone. I have created a link here for anyone wanting to test it out. It would be a good idea to report back to DJI support about your experience with it. I think they are getting close to releasing it as long as the feedback is positive. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9u5go4h3hmb6kmc/1627872707034-dji-v1.4.8-210801-1185-48348-official-sec.apk?dl=0

I'm seeing less and less support from DJI for this product and its bothering me to no end. The app is dangerous and poses a legal liability for me if I exceed flight heights if the readouts freeze, which they do.
spares in my country for this product are not available and have to rely on over priced third party imports. Sadly I will not be purchasing a DJI product to replace my drone once it has ceased to function.

I don't really know why some have problems with 1.4.8.
I have made several flights with the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone and two phones:

IPhone 8
Mi Note 10

The only thing I noticed are some very light lags while the drone flies but they happened even before, with the last version.
This may mean that on some smartphones there is some conflict, which can be CPU, memory or some app installed on it.
I use the iPhone8 only for the drone, while I use the Mi Note 10 also for work and video editing. While flying the drone, I close all background apps.

CORRECTION: see my last message. Tested a procedure that freezes the app.

I have had the same issues as everyone else, tried with 3 differnt phones, 1 brand new and have rolled all the phones back to 1.4.4 (1172) until DJI bring out a proper update to 1.4.8 I even tried out the new BETA version of 1.4.8  (1185) but still had problems.

I would recommend that you all roll back to 1.4.4 (1172).

Have a samsung s20, had same issues with the fly app flying a mini 2, gui stuff freezing, app hanging 3-10 times per flight. It is basically broken. It works when i revert to 1.4.4 no issues, also notice much lower gui latency on menus. There is a log file with a stacktrace mentioning some widget error. Front end stuff can be tricky with all the android and ios versions, but until there is an official new version to solve the android issues im staying on 1.4.4 fly app. Would love to hear from support about it.
