So I bought a Marshall CODE 50 a bit ago, and with nearly device I've tried - there seems to be a lot of issues with getting the gateway app to connect to the amplifier in general (most of the time it doesn't work - despite pairing just fine).
I've tried this on the Samsung Galaxy S8, iPad 5th generation, iPhone 7+ - The connection issues seem to stem from the apps use of Btle on these devices.
To experiment, I built an application that connects to the amplifier via bluetooth for Windows, and issues commands to the amplifier through the PC. This application uses a "classic" (SPP /RFCOMM) socket connection to send commands. The application works perfectly fine via this means - it can be seen running below:
As an experiment - is there a way to force the mobile applications (if it isn't using a btclassic / rfcomm connection) to use a btclassic connection as opposed to btle?
Thanks and all the best,

Hello. I just bought a code 50, and been trying to connect the Bluetooth but it simply doesn´t work. No Code50 is found in the list.
I have a Sony Xperia L, with the newest Android version (7+), but i can´t download the Marshall Gateway App from the Play Store, cause it says it´s not compatible with my Android version.
I´ve read the forums, and more people seem to have the same problem. Please FIX so i can try using the full potential of my amp...
Gateway does not work with my Android 4.4 phone. Does not even show the connect button for amp. Installed it directly to my phone 'cause Google Store says not compatible with my device. Did the "Fix" by remounting my SD and all steps but no luck.
Please assist with problem.
Hi I have a Huawei Ascend Y550 L01 Phone and cannot download the Marshall Gateway app, it states "incompatable with this device".
The phone is an android 4.44 I do believe it shoud work but sadley does not can you help with this problem?
Hi, my Code 50 USB has stopped working, nothing wrong with the USB port because it still charges the phone - tried two cables, no luck. So now I'm trying to figure out how to play songs through it via Bluetooth but *&^%%%%### no luck - how the hell do you do it? I've downloaded the Marshall Gateway app to my android but all i get is my phone icon and an arrow to the amp icon. DO I have to do something on the amp?
I picked up a Code 50 last week so far I love it and the possibilities it offers. Only issue I have had is when the Bluetooth is connected to my phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) if I get the phone too close to the amp I get a weird digital rattling sound coming from the amp. I have not tried to see if same issue happens with my Android tablet though. Has anyone one else had this problem or know the cause?
Where please Marshall Gateway for Android 4.2.2 ???
Latest version is for Android 4.4 and later and in Internet i find old version Marshall Gateway 1.2.6 only - this version crashed after start :-(
I have a Code 100 and my instructor has Code 25 amps. I neeed a consise explaination of how to copy a preset from a Code 25 to my Code 100. So far, the tutorials and FAQs have been more confusing than helpful. I have the Marshall Android app and can connect to the Codes but have not method of copying setup from one to another.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
Bluetooth connection is not very good in my opinion.
Bleutooth signal code 25 is ok, samsung s8 detects it alright.
But when i use the gateway android app it doesn't connect altough it shows in app as detected.
Is there a patch upcomming for the amp code series?
I upgrade to Android 7.0
Bluetooth is ok (blue light fixed) but impossible to connect Gateway to my Code.
It worked with old Android version.
What can I do?
Hi, I want to know if there is any development that will make phones like mine compatible with the Marshall App, it would be a huge disappointment if I cannot get to use the app since my phone is modern and running Android 6. I'm writing this before even having turned on my brand new Code 25. It says your device is not compatible with this version on google play; get this fixed for us people! it's 21 century for Gods sake! thank you.
How can I get the Marshall Gateway App to install on my ATT-ZTE Z971 Android version 7.1.1 cell phone ?
Google Play says my phone not supported. There are no warnings of this nature when buying the "CODE 50".
I have paired my Code 25 to my phone, which is running android 7.0, but the Play store won't allow me to download the app, or give me a specific reason my device "is not compatible". Is there something I'm missing?
Hello using Android Tablett the Code25 wired with USB cable gives Info that IT IS not connected.
Also one question to my Gateway and my Marshall, are this two standalone Systems? how can my library from my Marshall be used in my Gateway. In my opinion all this ist a litte bit to confusing.
my code worked ok with my galaxy 5 but i got a new moto z running android 7.1.1 and it will connect to bluetooth but will not connect in gateway. when i push scan for amps it never finds the code amp and yes i pushed the bluetooth buttons on the amp. in the gateway app the in the bottom left corner the amp/phone icon is missing for switching from amp to phone presets. the screen has the blue preset shown but the library has them in yellow. the worst part is that the display on the code amp is not working. it is barely readable. just yellow with the black barely visable. so without being able to program it using the display it doesn't work with my phone either. i have owned a lot of marshalls and still have a bunch but i have never been so dissapointed as i am with this piece of crapp. can't use it live because of the dropouts when switching channels and yea i know about using the same amps and settings in all the presets but that is unaceptable. i have the footswitch and thats a disaster too. one little slip like accidently pushing two buttons at the same time or too fast or twice freezes the amp or reprograms it. yea really cool turning it off and back on in the middle of a song. i tried using it live once and it was a disaster. never again. so i love the tone for recording but now i can't even do that because it wont connect bluetooth and the display is almost dead so i can't program it.
I've modified about 50 presets on my code 50 amp. I have recently installed the gateway app on my android phone and works well with teh amp.
I want to backup al my modified preset from my amp to another place, for instance on my marshall cloud.
When I connect my phone and the gate way amp and I select to save the preset and make sure that save to libary option is selected I can save the preset. When I logged on the my marshall nothing of the modified names is visible on my marshall. Also when I checked the library on the phone nothing has changed.
I only can see my modified presets when I connect to the amp. (Golden modify buttons)
My question: How can I backup all my modified presets to a cloud or locally on my phone in a easy user friendly way ?
Just got a code 25, loaded Marshall gateway on my samsung J3 android phone and noticed when you choose a patch from the library the threshold setting shown on early videos now appears to have morphed into Gate? Is this an error on the latest update.?? Has anyone else noticed this.
I bought this Amp because i play different Marshall Amps for over 20 Years now.
The sound is great, but there is always an issue trying to connect my phone with the amp via Bluetooth.
The Amp is in pairing mode, an I tried different Android phones (old ones and the newest), even my
band mates tried a connection. The Amp never disappears on any phone we tried.
Even my Laptop does not even find the Amp.
I tried the firmware update to 1.41, also rebooting, all the things mentioned here in the forum
and in the troubleshooting sections. Nothing works.
I am disappointed, this is not what Marshall stands for!
