Re: Are there any other ways to install debug token other than using qde

[ Edited ]

One thing that definitely doesn't work like a regular BBW installation when you sandbox install is checking for previously purchased virtual goods. Since when you do a sandbox purchase it doesn't really happen, BBW will always report that you haven't purchased the good before, no matter how many times you've sandbox purchased it.

 

Other than that, your app behaves exactly the way it would if a non-sandboxed user downloaded it.

Okay, I hadn't really though of that as "shaking" before. Thanks.

Development mode definitely does not need to be on for a sandbox install of a *signed* app.

Development mode doesn't need to be on *after* a sandbox install of a signed app. You need it on to perform the install (since otherwise BBWorld won't even show you the page where you initiate the download) but after it's installed you can disable development mode again.

 

The app is *exactly* like a regular install, except if something requires payments or something else that would work only for a true, approved app install from BlackBerry World.

Upload a signed app for the sandbox testers.  If that's what you've been doing, and yet you get the symptoms you described earlier, then please clarify a bit more. "Shaking" isn't a description that I understand (aside from what you see when you long-press on an icon to start deleting or reorganizing the apps).


 

Export - > Release Build -> Export Configuration (Device-Release) -> Next -> Finish

This created a MyApp-1_0_0_1.bar in arm/o.le-v7-g folder)

 

I zip this bar file together with the devices.txt in a folder and upload it to BBW as draft.

Added the tester accounts into sandbox.

Log into BBW with the tester account, successfully download and installed.

But unable to launch the app (it just shakes and remains there)

 

I tried to sideload this bar into my device and it gives the same result (like shakes and not launching anything).

 

If create the bar by using build-configuration (device-release), and sideloaded the bar into my device, it works fine.

Re: Are there any other ways to install debug token other than using qde

The default location for the exported signed bar is arm/o.le-v7 not the debug folder (-g being the linker parameter for debug), are you sure you have the right one?

Re: Are there any other ways to install debug token other than using qde

... and why are you zipping the bar file?

@BBSJdev... Good catch, I didn't notice that.

Strangely, my default location is set to arm/0.le-v7-g. 

Even if i change the folder location, is still works the same.

Any idea where goes wrong?

Re: Are there any other ways to install debug token other than using qde

Okay and the time stamp on the bar file corresponds with the time you do the export?
If so you are probably okay, so you just need to explain the zipping bit?

What version of Momentics are you on?

Re: Are there any other ways to install debug token other than using qde

yes the bar file is created at the time i did the export release.

i actually followed the steps given which zip the bar file and devices.txt into a bundle folder and upload it.

And I'm guessing is not the zip problem because even if I just sideload the signed bar through googleChrome extension I'm still unable to launch the app.

 

My current Momentics version is BlackBerry 10 Native SDK 10.1.0.1020.

My device OS is 10.0.10.261

Re: Are there any other ways to install debug token other than using qde

I thought it might be that, I've never done a bundle upload before I always just upload the bar on its own.
