Made my app autostart: Now phone crashes continuousness

Forums:

Ok, this is what I've done.
I successfully set autostart flag for my BREW app, and handle it correctly. Everything worked fine until I loaded the APP with something wrong, I guess bad memory handling.

The thing is I can't restart the phone since the app crashes it immeditaly,
something like this

markdude press on -> program goes autostart in a second -> program crashes phones -> phone restarted -> program goes autostart in a second -> ... and so on

help? Should I jump now from the window? because this is the only phone I have.
help?

Sounds like you bricked your phone. We have done that once before, doing the exact same thing. Now we ONLY set the ISHELL_init flag once we are done testing the code etc. All new builds have to run first without the autoload...
Sorry, but I think you will have to get a new phone.

Another way to protect yourself (doesn't help you now, sorry...):
* Always autostart, but check to see if a file (say .autostart) is present on the system. If it isn't, then then set an alarm for 60 seconds time THEN start the app. If it is present, start the app, and delete the file.
* On a clean exit, create the file
This only protects against coding bugs though. If you mess up your build and load a completely corrupt mod on, then your phone is still bricked.

You could send the phone in to Qualcomm to be reflashed, which would un-brick it.
