Screen flicker bug Fire HD 6 + Unity 5

Hey all, Wondering if anyone knows the solution to this (short videos): https://twitter.com/lkmad/status/615896900479246336 https://twitter.com/lkmad/status/615506344410378240 https://twitter.com/lkmad/status/615505550311190528 I am using Unity 5.0.0f4 & Playmaker. I just had two people test the game on other Android devices, Nexus + Adreno with no issues. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it? I've tried deleting pretty much everything from the scene and it still had the issue. Many thanks!

Hi LK, Are you using multiple layers for these buttons, and hiding and removing them? This looks like a floating point accuracy issue with your sprites, causing z-fighting while trying to sort which is where. If you're using sprites for this, try setting the layer in the front to a higher sorting layer. If you're using materials/quads, increase the distance between the two planes. If you could elaborate any further on what we're seeing, we'll be able to take another look and offer up additional possible suggestions :) Edit: Having just looked at your issue some more, could you try forcing OpenGL ES 2.0 in your build settings? Also, please make sure you're Kindle Fire is updated to the latest version (4.5.4).
