SOTI agent, stuck at splash screen when screen is locked

SOTI agent, stuck at splash screen when screen is locked


We have started seeing a weird behavior on some of our XCover 4s devices. When we do a restartagent or for example an upgrade of the agent when the screen is locked, the agent is stuck on splash screen and won't start until we unlock the screen.

Have anyone else seen this problem?

I have tried to disable Doze Mode, upgrade to the latest agent. eg.

Android+ devices (DA)

Hi Johan,


Thanks for posting your concern!


Since when are you experiencing this behavior on Android devices? Was there any update on the device or MobiControl?

Can you please share the current version of MobiControl and the agent version you were trying to upgrade from?

Is this issue happening only on XCover 4s devices?

It seems it is somewhat connected to the Doze Mode but also might be some bug in the old version of the agent running on the devices 14.0 Samsung ELM.

It happens from time to time, as soon as you wake the device or unlock, the splash screen is shown and then the lockdown is loading and device gets online. But while the screen is locked, the agent won't start.

I will see if I can log a case on this one and get some ADB logs from the device.

We have actually seen it on regular XCover 4 devices as well running on 14.1.7 agent.

What's more weird is that the agent seems to be able to receive script commands from the Platform even if it is not completely started, sometimes it actually helps with sending the unlock script through the Platform.
