Hi there!

Please have a look at the provided sample application, which is part of the Wikitude SDK zip.
Examples/apk - folder even contains the generated apk so you can test the app without and Android Studio / Eclipse setup.

Please check if

* issue occurs after device restart 
* SDK Sample applicationhas the same issue
* Other devices ahve same issue

If SDK Sample app works as expected: Please have a closer look at its source-code and compare it with your's.

Kind regards

I have the same problem. The sample works fine. Though the sample app is a bit too messy to start my own app. I would like a clean start as described in the 'tutorial'. The problem is the tutorial seems to be only about the javascript part, hardly about the android part.

I copied the first cam (surfer) example from the sample app and started my own activity according to the few instructions in the android starting tutorials. I do see the surfer header which means the html is loaded.

i got the "called unimplemented OpenGL ES API" error in logcat.

My main method:

this.architectView = (ArchitectView) this


final StartupConfiguration config = new StartupConfiguration(key);

if (this.architectView != null) {


try {
