Niantic has released a new software update for Pokémon GO on Android, which brings the augmented reality app to version 0.51.0.

This has been primarily rolled out to address a bug that had caused incorrect vibration notifications, but the developer has also adjusted day and night modes to more closely reflect the player’s current time of day. Aside from that, you can expect the usual minor text fixes.

  1. The game is currently broken for a lot of Android users because of this new update. Do not update your version until they force it on you. It freezes at the loading screen and won’t start the game.

  2. But if that doesn’t work, a Reddit user who goes by N4Y4R posted one solution on the Silph Road subreddit today that’s helping a lot of people, although it is not effective for everyone. Here’s what to do:

    Before starting Pokemon Go, disable the GPS on your phone. On an iPhone, you can do this by going to Settings –> Privacy –> Location Services. Then turn Location Services off. On Android, go to Settings –> Location, and then turn Location off.
    Now, open the Pokemon Go app, waiting for it to get through the loading screen and for the glitch to occur.
    Go retrace your steps from step one and then turn the GPS back on.
    Open up Pokemon Go, and the freezing should hopefully have stopped.

    It seems that the success of this tactic depends on what kind of phone you are using. Reddit users have reported that the fix works with the OnePlus 2, HTC M8, Xperia X, Redmi Note 3, Nexus 6P, Moto G4, Moto X Pure Edition, Samsung Galaxy s6, Sony Experia Z5, and the Nexus 5X, but it doesn’t work for the LG G4, LG V10, or the HTC One M9.
