Default sign app that auto-runs

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everybody,

i have written an application for my blackberry, that runs fine without signing it with the signature tool of JDE.
Now i want to let the application run on startup. After researching how to do this i found out, that i just have to check the checkboxes in the properties of my project (properties->application->auto-run on startup), but that the application then needs to be signed. So i registered for code-signing, got the 3 .csi files and installed them.

Now the signature tool showed Status='Not signed', Category='Optional' for all my .cod files. I signed the files and installed it on my blackberry.
The application does not autostart, it still shows an icon (auto-run + system module checked) and when i try to start the app manually i get an error message stating that the app needs to be signed...

btw: it works on the simualtor, meaning it autostarts, does not show the icon and give's no error.

What am i doing wrong?

update: after deleting the .cod files and rebuiling + signing them i don't get the error on the device anymore. but my app does not auto-run... any ideas?

Ok, my app still does not autostarts when the blackberry is turned on. I have tried all combinations of checking/unchecking the "auto-run" and "system module" checkboxes in JDE with no success. On the simulator i always get the expected results, but not on the real device.
Can anybody who has been able to auto-run an app tell me what i need to do, please?

ok, another step further. I realized that my app already starts automatically when the blackberry gets started (rebooted that is). Unfortunately that only occurs when i take out the battery.
When i just turn the blackberry off and on again, my app not gets started. It seams turning the blackberry off is merely just sending it to sleep mode.

So now i want to know how i can autostart an app when the blackberry gets turned on again without rebooting it.

Is there a way to achieve this?
