Hi - brand new here. Question: after I reset my transmitter, must I use only the xDrip app for it to work past the original sudden death date? My Dexcom App still lists my original activation date, while CDrip shows the transmitter at Day 0. If so, must I uninstall the Dexcom App? My endo is not going to be happy if I do that…
(Background: I have twice restarted my current G6 sensor (!) - and today used XDrip to reset my transmitter, which is due to expire in a couple weeks. (I’m on day 91 today). On the XDrip App, the transmitter displays Day 0, but on my Dexcom receiver and in the Dexcom App, it still displays my original activation date, 2/20/19.
Today I stopped (but did not uninstall) Dexcom App, had Bluetooth forget it, installed Xdrip, entered the transmitter number into XDrip, calibrated as requested, waited for a couple readings to come in to be sure it was up and running and connected, entered engineer mode, enabled OB1 collector, entered the command hard reset transmitter, waited, and got the message that it had been reset, saw the Day 0 reading on the status page. I also immediately got the message from my (apparently not-so-forgotten Dexcom App that my sensor had expired (it was due to expire tomorrow). I waited to see if XDrip would restart my still-inserted old sensor, but it did not. (I did tick the box for auto-restarts.) After half an hour +. I used the Dexcom receiver to do a sensor restart, and 2 hours 15 minutes later, I see that it worked, I calibrated and my old sensor is up and running now, on the Dexcom app and receiver. HOWEVER, both Dexcom items say the transmitter is about to expire, and show my original activation date back in March.) 2 hours later, my phone has lost the signal, but the receiver is still going strong. Waiting for the phone to pick it up again.
