Geekbench 3 crashes on startup - Android 4.0.3

The app crashes on startup. It's showing the UI without content for a few seconds, then it closes without any chance to send a crash report. I'm runing it on a Asus Eee Pad Slider (SL101, Nvidia Tegra 2) with a rooted stock Android (4.0.3). Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Geekbench 3 for Android requires an ARMv7 processor that supports NEON instructions. Your NVIDIA Tegra 2 does not meet these minimum requirements, hence the crash.

    If you are not happy with your purchase because of this limitation I would be happy to refund your order. Just email support at primatelabs dot com with your Google Play order number and we'll take care of the rest.

    In the meantime let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.
