Problem with special characters in passwords #1509

Expected behaviour

If I set my password to test² I'm able to login to ownCloud via web or the native clients for debian and Windows 7. This should be the case for the android app also.

Actual behaviour

The app shows "wrong username or password" if I try to connect.
If I set the connection to unencrypted and sniff the traffic, I can see that the app changes some special characters to question marks. Screenshots can be found here (german):

Steps to reproduce

  1. Setup an account
  2. Change password to something containing characters like ² or ł
  3. Login via android app

Environment data

Android version: 5.1.1

Device model: Oneplus One

Stock or customized system: Stock OxygenOS 2.1.4

ownCloud app version: latest on the play store

ownCloud server version: 8.2.2


Web server error log

Webserver is working fine

ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log)

No log found there

Yes, this issue is duplicated in #1322 as you said @AndyScherzinger . So we can close this issue and follow it in the #1322 one.
