    There's a couple of third-party apps on the Play Store which take a wake-lock during scanner usage. I use one called "Ingress Wakelock" personally. Hope this helps! Maybe in a future version they will upgrade the scanner with a wake lock feature..

    Yes. This is exactly how it works. You don't need to do anything.

    Try clearing the data for the Ingress app.

    True!
    It does take a lot of time when you are starting out and A: you are engulfed by enemy territory or B: Everyone around you it seems it lvl 6 or higer.
    However, with a little perseverance, you CAN take down portals with high levels! IVE DONE IT AS A LVL2!!!

    All you need to do is HACK, HACK, HACK. From your own or even enemy. You will be farming a LOT of weapons and using them just as quickly as you get them.
    The best advise i can say for getting those points, take one down at a time. Focus on ONE portal a day. Make it your MISSION to take it down!

    I did this and i have JUST reached a lvl 4 in 2 days. Hack, attack, run away. Did that about 3x yesterday and the day before. NOT BAD if i do say so myself!

    OK, so I know this is bumping an old thread, but this was a great help to me! Just started out and looking for pointers, and this was great!

    On the downside there are only 3 portals in my home town.... on the plus side, one was claimed by my faction and the other two WERE unclaimed..... and there are plenty of monuments I will be using to create new portals!

    Right outside my office is a (compared to me!) high level (6) opposing faction portal.... have hacked a load of weapons off it already, so hopefully in a day or two I will be better placed to launch an attack!

    Thnx so much. we just started playing 4 days ago, and this is definitely a great tactical tutorial for leveling up & learning the skills for the battle field. The more sweat in training, the less blood on the floor, ya.
    So again, Thnx.

    I would like to make another point here. It's been a while since this thread has been bumped and I don't know if this information even applied back then. Hacking and Attacking are more complicated than just tapping their respective buttons.

    If you hold the Hack button in the portal menu, you'll be taken to the Glyph hack screen. Match the patterns they give you in the order they give to you and you'll be rewarded with bonus items. It takes a while to get used to, but I'm getting better at it. The glyphs get more difficult the higher the level of the portal you're hacking.

    While you're attacking, keep an eye on the visual charging effect you see when you hold the attack button down. That's right, hold the button down. You'll see a ring close in on your position marker. If you release the attack button while that ring is closed on top of your marker, you can get a 20% attack bonus (you'll know if you did it right.) Doing this will save you a LOT of XMPs.

    My brother showed me the glyph hack when we were level 3s,Ii figured out the bonus attack on my own and thought I would share.

    Wow, I just spend 28 to get alpha access in amazing game Ingressions on kickstarter project. This is real time military strategy like a “WarCraft”, “StarCraft” or “Red Alert”, also on a real world map like Ingress. Look at that. So cool! I can't post links but this is dream you can find on Kickstarter - Ingressions.

    Very helpful post but you are forgetting the mos important thing, IT IS A GAME, KEEP IT A GAME. i see so much people wondering, spending gas, external battery etc etc for this game and this is not good.
