Robotek resets itself if I try to multitask and Home Launcher crashes

Robotek

https://market.android.com/details?id=net.hexage.robotek.hd&feature=search_result

When I play Robotek and switch to the homescreen or any other app Robotek resets itself or if I switch to the homescreen, the homescreen crashes, and all the icons disappear and the phone slows down for few seconds

Something similar has been occurring with Google Maps, I'd already repaired the phone, factory reset, only have one app open (Robotek) and only that app installed and I still have the same problem

any suggestions?

Issues to be solve ASAP

After few software updates, Sony Ericsson added "new features" BUT they haven't fixed others

1) ambient light sensor

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/125881#125881

2) Decent Battery life

3) Housing Crack

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/84435#84435

4) Launcher stops responding when you open many apps or heavyapps like Maps, and some games

5) OVER COMPRESSED PICTURES UGH, THIS REALLY BOTHERS ME, THEY ADDED FEATURES TO THE CAMERA BUT FAILED TO FIX THIS ISSUE

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/72838#72838

but Sony provides the same sensor to the icrap and they take full advantage of it and take amazing pictures and videos

6) wifi connectivity issues

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/thread/14324

7) 3G/H connectivity issues

8) fb updates on the phonebook (I use it sometimes, I want to have the option)

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/125277#125277

http://talk.sonyericsson.com/message/125276#125276

9) Real Sony Ericsson commitment, not upto 2 years but "AT LEAST 2 YEARS" of updates

10) Music & Video

it doesn't seem to be working, there are a LOT of flaws with this Facebook Inside Xperia

Re: Robotek resets itself if I try to multitask and Home Launcher crashes

From what you describe, it appears that the phone may have momentarily run out of resources(memory and CPU overloaded) and caused the home screen to crash and Robotek to reset.

Just a guess here with the icons dissapearing, it could be due to the phone doing a soft reboot after the crash and needs to reinitialise the icons, etc, etc.

I have also noticed that if I perform lots of actions in quick succession, sometimes when I return to the home screen, I can see some icons have dissapeared momentarily but then it automatically comes back after a few seconds.


My hunch is the phone may not be powerful enough at times to perform tasks that need lots of processing power.

If you are able to get a friend who has a Samsung Galaxy S 2 phone, to install Robotek, and see if Robetek resets itself. Just as a test.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 has a 1.2 GHz Dual Core CPU and a better graphics engine and also better display screen.

Re: Robotek resets itself if I try to multitask and Home Launcher crashes

Hmmmm. It is a bummer

I think to run Gingerbread, it generally requires more than Eclair. Hence it may be fine in Eclair as the phone may have more spare resources and the CPU may not be as busy as in Gingerbread.

That's what I think anyway. S was on Eclair and S2 on Gingerbread. Samsung made a wise decision to put in a faster and also a dual core processor in their S2 phone. But them again SE released the Arc earlier.

I wonder if its the lack of RAM or not enough RAM or if its a launcher bug umm

Re: Robotek resets itself if I try to multitask and Home Launcher crashes

How about doing some systematic eliminatiion of probable causes ie

1) Removing the home launcher

2) Use a X10 to perform some tests. May be flash the X10 back to 2.1 and try

3) etc

4) etc

Re: Robotek resets itself if I try to multitask and Home Launcher crashes

Don't seem to have the problem you described.

I noticed the app automatically during installation put the majority of its files on to the card.


Could it be because my SD card is a Class 10 speed and your is of a slower speed that could be a possible reason?
