I'm porting a SDL based game and have problem with the app getting stuck if I close it with a swipe up. The icon stays faded/grey and I'm unable to start the app anymore. The only option is to reboot the device. The obvious answer would be to ssh, ps & kill but as the OS is so restrictive I'm not able to do that. And trying to kill it with blackberry-deploy -terminateApp does not do anything. Anyone have any ideas ?
Not that it must be a devMode app, since there's no way to kill a signed one programmatically.
Also, try the "long-press" option if the window is still open (though it sounds like it's not). Instead of just tapping the X in the corner of the active frame, press and hold for a second or two. It will force it closed instead of just asking it to close.
Since that's pretty much exactly what the Zombie Slayer app does, it seems your solution should work fine for you. ;-)
You may like to check out the pidin app as well, since it's sort of like what ps would do. QNX has a utility to give help on apps as well, called "use". Just type "use pidin" to learn more. And yes, the app sandboxing means you can't see most of the stuff that's going on in the system, but you can see your own devMode apps just fine.
