Gun Bros and Nexus 10

Just got a Google Nexus 10 tablet for my cousin a few days ago and it is running Android 4.2.1 on it. It is stock (not-rooted), and has close to the full 32GB of memory on it still free.

There's a game we like to play called Gun Bros and he has no problem playing it on his Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0, nor do I have any problems playing it on my Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.2.1, or my Galaxy Tab 10.1 running Android 4.0. For some reason when he downloaded and installed Gun Bros and the resource pack, when he clicks the app to open it up, the game screen barely opens up for less than a fraction of a second then closes and takes him back to his desktop. What can we do to get this working in order for us to enjoy playing this game together?

I have also emailed Glu for technical support (which was less than helpful), and I also tried the steps listed on their website:

[Android only] I have tried the tips under the General Troubleshooting FAQ but Gun Bros is still crashing/not loading

You can try forcing a re-install of the resource files. This won't affect your savegame.

Firstly, make sure you're on a good, reliable WiFi connection, because this is a relatively large download.

You'll need to access your SD card folders and find the Glu game resource file folders then delete the corresponding file for the game that is causing you trouble. Once this file is deleted, the game will prompt you to download a new resource pack. Please make sure you are on a good WiFi connection and that your SD card has enough room on it.

The location of these resource files on the SD card should be:


Clear cache by going to your device's Settings, then Applications > Manage Applications > All > Market and hit "Clear Data"

Then launch the game as usual and it will automatically re-download those files.

DO NOT UNINSTALL OR DELETE THE GAME or you will lose your savegame data which is not recoverable.
