Freezing PB - Converted Android apps?

I have OS version 2.1.01314. Never had any problems until few days ago. What I tried to run converted Android APS  my PB intermittently is going nuts. It freezes for several seconds I mean black screen only. Than recovers. After restarting the PB. I have done a Backup to my PC and done a Sec Swipe. Now I am re loading the OS. The last two apps I installed were GPS Maps using Nokia Maps and Passwdsafe, both from App World. I suspect one of these apps, but I am far from certain.

 

Anyone has similar problems.

I would run it for a day without any sideloaded apps, then do them one at a time starting with those suspect two.

The funny thing is that I never had problems with sideloaded apps. The problem seems to have been caused by apps loaded from our own App World. Now I am staying away from my suspects. See what happenes.  For now all is sweet again.

Some times running many diff android apps will cause it to hang, Usually a restart fixes it for my son.

Re: Freezing PB - Converted Android apps?

I kept restarting mine as well. After awhile it got real bad.  Even my keyboard input got messed up. I had to go to my PC to send in my original post. 

 

There seems to be week point somewhere.  Maybe the quality of the Android runner or the quality of the conversions? Restarting and restarting should not be needed.  It is a only a bandaid solution - as long as it works.

 

One thing is sure RIM does not need any negative press right now.
