since the update to Android 5.1 (Kernel 3.10.40-geec2459; Build Nummer- LMY47E, with root), the recorder doesn´t work. it crashes all the times.
It seems that he has problems when saving the file.


Android 5.1 changed several APIs that made the problem, we'll update the app to fix it.
At this moment please disable the "Ask Before Save" option in the app, although it still crashes at the end of recording but it can save recorded calls. Sorry for that.

The problem is fixed, please install V7.7 or newer versions.

Can't seem to get it working on Chroma Marshmallow (AOSP based ROM). Button for manual recording will not activate in dialer. Any help appreciated.


Can you please click the "Call Settings - Fix Recording Issues - Ask New Parameters" item in Boldbeast Recorder to send hardware log files to me? let me check them. Thanks.


Sent, thanks much!


I checked your log files, you recorded only one call using wrong settings.
Please use above settings to record calls.


Hello, I just updated to Nougat, have root, but Enable Root Options fails.  The SuperSU prompt came up.  Root Explorer root works in other apps, but Boldbeast said I wasn't rooted properly and to Google how to root my Nexus 6.  I think this is because the app is not updated to enable root options for a Nexus 6 with Nougat.

How can I help?  This is the best app and I want to continue to use it.


Please install V8.7d that has fixed the problem: http://www.boldbeast.com/forum/topic132 … r-v87.html

Yes it is working like a charm again.  Thanks

I noticed it shows a standby notification now so that the app doesn't get "dozed".  I added this app to my battery setting Not Optimized list and in the App settings said to remove that notification.  I assume this will result in expected function, I.e pre-Marshmallow.  Can you please confirm?


Android 6.0 and newer versions have a new feature "Battery Optimization" that can deactivate the recorder, as a result some calls may not be recorded.
We introduced the "Standby Indicator" in the new version that can fix the problem. More information: http://www.boldbeast.com/forum/topic132 … order.html

Android 5.0 and older versions don't have the "Battery Optimization" feature so it don't have the problem. However some third-party ROMs, third-party apps may add this feature to the system, in this case the "Standby Indicator" in the new version V8.7 can be useful.


I have a Motorola Google Nexus 6, not rooted, running Android 7.1.1, running Pro version 11.2GP. I have followed instructions posted here for settings, including battery optimization turned off for Bold Beast. Recording my side of conversation on bluetooth headset, but not the caller. Any help for this?


You should root the phone to fix the problem, see the post #1.
Without root there is no solution in the market.
