Yeah - because they are then run with HAXM translation - which back in the Lollipop day didn't understand arm64. I'm surprised that worked at all, frankly.

Luckily though, going back a few releases, I get back download capability for both my FTDI computer and my shearwaters so all is good for that point of view - downloading my suunto was the only reason why I bought an android system, i usually do everything on an iPad.
