Upgrading your Peripheral SDK JAR file to AAR will be necessary for peripherals to function seamlessly on Android 12. Failure to update will cause applications that leverage that library to crash on launch. As always, your devices will never prompt for an update or auto-update. Once the update is available, devices can be updated from the EloView Portal or at the device-level from the EloView Control Panel.
