app error 603 - service startup process died




Has anyone seen this?


My app runs for a while (2 seconds to an hour or so) and then crashes the entire device.


I get an "app error 603"


Debug output shows:

Application net_rim_services_impl(8) is not responding; process terminated

[d d03]

d d03


App Error 603

Service startup process died


Any pointers much appreciated.

you block the event thread, most likely by doing networking or other blocking processing without using a separate thread.

Thanks Simon,


My app had indeed become a little messy through 'evolution'. A quick (though comprehensive) refactoring seems to have sorted the problem.

hi, did you use a seperate thread for the blocking operation?
