when attempting to connect to wifi to search for updates, my st16s draws the android keyboard under all the other ui elements, and even when entering the correct password, just freezes instead of connecting to the wifi. anyone else experiencing this>?

Thanks. This is what's happening:

as you can see the keyboard is drawn under the other UI elements, and while you can still type on it, entering a password just freezes the device

Try a factory reset.

I was reluctant to reset given all the trouble people seem to have with those (lost connections, resetting to chinese, etc)

I DID find a workaround though, for anyone interested:

This was a new old stock drone that shipped with an early firmware, and newer firmwares don't seem to do this. In order to update, you have to:

* Boot JUST the ST16s -- not the drone

* Hit back twice to get you into android, go to settings -- wifi

* Manually connect to an access point from there

* Re-open flight control and go to the update dialog -- the listed drone etc should be blank. Don't hit update

* Boot the drone and let it pair, pair manually (to just the drone not the camera) if necessary

* The update list should appear. Download the necessary files and update.

Hope this helps others
