View Full Version : [NOREPRO] Reproducable iOS Simulator environment crash (forces restart of OS X)

19 Oct 2011, 4:31 AM

I've faced a shocking situation some minutes ago and thats reproducable.
If you package an App using "sencha package run *.json" with iPad as Device target
the simulator comes up normally. You can quit the simulator, restart the app - all fine.

But if you choose "Window -> Size -> 100%" and afterwards "Hardware -> Turn right"
the simulator cannot be started again after you quit the current simulator session.
No Simulator session at all can be started again. Whatever App you want to simulate (even non-sencha-touch apps, native apps etc.) It quits directly after startup with a popup dialog where you can switch the SDK, quit or try to restart the simulator.

After an OS X restart, all is fine again. I'm running OS X Lion, Xcode 4.1, build 4B110; latest native packager (the one from abe, not the release one).

Thanks & regards

This is likely an Xcode bug not a Sencha bug. File it with apple.

I'm not sure. It only appears for App packed with Sencha command and Sencha Touch in it. Maybe it has something to do with the packager API (Native wrapper JS api internally when chaning the orientation).

It never happens when you do that with a native app. Also doesnt happen with any PhoneGap app. When it only happens with Sencha Touch 2.0 / packager apps... it maybe has something to do with the Sencha Touch / packager / native wrapper code. (Maybe apple will say: "It's not reproducable with our native apps. It has something to do with Sencha's native wrapper" ;)

We'll try to reproduce the problem.

This hasn't had any activity in a long time - I don't think this bug still exists (I cannot reproduce it) so I will close for now. We can reopen if it does still happen
