Thanks for getting back to me.
Ive been testing for memory leaks in the beta. To do this I coded a test harness that simply simulates a screen tap at specified intervals on random profiles. This has been great as it let me iron out all the loose bits of code that could cause problems.
One very important thing this test harness has been able to do for me is load and stress test the app for long priods of time. Eg 1 key press every 1/2 second for 12 hours. See if memory usage grows, if things lock up when using different applications, etc
Ive been able to watch dvds and use all the apps on my device while this is going on and I havent had a soft or hard reset yet. But I'm developing and testing on and imate II. So we arent really comparing apples to apples. I know the imate II wasnt really stable until the later rom upgrades.
At the moment Ive got it set up as you have and am simulating 1 key press every 30 seconds on random profiles. This is turning the flight mode on and off and setting all the options of each profile. I'll let it run for the next 8 hours and see if anything eventuates.
Hi Bretto, I found some time today, and decided to try and replicate it. I have now replicated the problem twice. Basically,
Install ppcprofiles by copying cab to phone and running there. change profile options as mentioned in previous post. Stop all other running problems. Do a soft reset. The ppc refuses to restart on soft reset. Hangs on T-Mobile screen. Normal restart from soft reset is:
1. T-Mobile screen appears
2. Backlight comes on and version information appears in bottom left of screen
3. backlight flashes
4. With T-Mobile screen still showing, applications start loading (I use SPB Pocket Plus, and the battery indicator appears at the top of the screen at this point)
5. The Today screen loads
6. PPC ready for use.
After a soft reset after installing ppcprofiles, step 3 occurs, and then nothing. The SPB Pocket Plus battery indicator does not appear, and the phone just hangs. This continues through numerous (>10) soft resets with and without SD card in, and removing/replacing battery. I always have to do a hard reset and restore from backup. Could it be a problem with SPB Pocket Plus? I also have SPB GPRS Monitor which loads on startup...
Let me know if you need any more info, my next test will be installing the app and trying a soft reset without changing any settings...
