I was trying to debug my app and its locked up my device (Curve os v188.8.131.523)
It got locked up when app start up displayed the permission change dialog. that happens in the constructor and i had also put in some code to pop up a dialog to let me know when the constructor had executed another bit of code.
i thought that might be risky, asking the app to display something on the screen before the app was completely set up but I didn't anticipate this errant process surviving:
1. power down
2. power down, battery pull, power up
3, battery pull with no power down
4. delete of all data on device via Desktop Manager
So, it seems I've got the Ultimate Zombie Process.
Has anyone else been thru something like this? What did you do to kill your Ultimate Zombie Process?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I've checked the manifest and yes, the app is auto-start.
Ordinarily, I can delete it in Options. This time though, I wound up with the entire device being unresponsive except for the Menu key.
If I pressed and held it, then I'd get the little screen showing all the running apps.
But that was the only key that worked on the whole device. And I had to press and hold it. Just pressing it did nothing.

This might be useful...
So you can start the phone and not your app?

After I started the phone, the app was running.
I tried about 4-6 different ways of shutting down the phone down. Each time the phone restarted, I found the app was still running.
I'll hang on to the link, that may have been useful.

"After I started the phone, the app was running."
If you app was running even when you started in safe mode, then I think there is a bug. Can you confirm you started in safe moede?
