  • I was trying to follow this tutorial to post data from an Android phone to data.sparkfun.com but it didn't work. The error in Android Studio said:

    https error: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: javax.net.ssl.SSLProtocolException: SSL handshake aborted: ssl=0x5f342930: Failure in SSL library, usually a protocol error
    error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure (external/openssl/ssl/s23_clnt.c:741 0x5ad6fb86:0x00000000)

    My phone is a Samsung S3 running Android 4.3.

    After doing some looking around with Google, I think the problem is because Android 4.3 cannot do TLS 1.2, and based on this report it appears that the data.sparkfun.com server requires TLS 1.2. I am totally new to all of this (Android programming and Phant), but can anyone confirm for me that this might be the problem? If it is, can I make this work somehow? Maybe by installing Phant on my own computer and somehow configuring it do TLS 1.1?
