Blackberry sample

Hi,

To start with the basics and see what the sample code is doing, I first installed the Mintchip in my Blackberry Torch 9800 and I can see that the SDcard is there from the Windows Explorer when the Blackberry is connected. Then I Installed the API with the BAT file and then the Sample code with the BAT file. No error. The Blackberry restarted as expected and I can now see the Mintchip Icon. When I click on the icon, there is an hourclock for 1-2 seconds, then nothing more. It seems to freeze the Blackberry and even the back button (the revert arrow) doesn't respond. Only way to get out is to click on the Start-Stop button. It doesn't stop or restart, but I get back the control of the Blackberry.

I uninstalled with both BAT files and then reinstalled with the Blackberry Desktop software. Installed first with MintChipBlackberryApi.alx. The Blackberry restarted (after apply) and then I installed the sample with MintChipSample.alx and applied the changes. Still exactly the same problem.

Quite difficult to develop an application when the sample doesn't work and no error message. This was done with the original files. From a copy, I installed the software in Eclipse Blackberry plugin, and when building, it gives me only the warning errors that the code is not signed, which is quite normal.

Am I missing something or do we need also to debug the sample application?

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I just did that on the real Blackberry torch 9800 and no luck. Still exactly the same problem.

    I just tried on the Torch 9800 simulator.

    Loaded in the order:

    MintChipBlackberryApi.cod
    MintChipCommon.cod
    MintChipSample.cod

    I see the icon and when I click, it gives me:

    JVM error 104
    Uncaught:RuntimeException

    and when I click on Comtinue, I get:

    Error starting MintChipSample:
    Module 'GTSDUpi' not found

    Hi,

    yes, the microSD chip is installed and recognized by the phone. If I connect the phone, I can see that there is a 2G space on it. (Before I had a 4G SD card, which I removed to be replaced by the MintChip SD card).

    Once connected through Blackbery Desktop, I can see (in Windows Explorer) the folder and it contains a file: SMART_IO.CRD

    Hi,

    Here is what I get in the logs of the Blackberry Torch 9800 when I execute the Mintchip sample:

    Please note also that I uninstalled the sample from the Blackberry, dezipped the Mintchip sample code in another folder on my computer, just to make sure, and uploaded the Mintchip sample and API from the Blackberry destop using this new folder.

    I checked the logs (from previous post) after this procedure.

    Thanks

    Not being able to run the sample code in a simulator is a huge PITA. Just Sayin
