Default Autolock + YATCA = Crashes on the Storm?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone using YATCA and Autolock on their Storm witness periodic resets when trying to unlock the Storm?

My Storm has been resetting once or twice a day when I try to unlock it. I'm not sure if Autolock is very much of a culprit, but I uninstalled YATCA two days ago and I haven't had a single reboot since then.

Just curious if others have noticed similar or the same situation. If there are any other ideas, please share.

I noticed that PodTrapper and Autolock did not like each other. Even without Podtrapper, Autolock would give me an exception error every once in a while. But would never crash my phone. Once I started uing PodTrapper, which by the way is great, I noticed that if Autolock tried to engage while PodTrapper was open, then the Storm would totally freeze. This happened about a dozen times over 2 days until I just removed Autolock and then no more problems.

Since Autolock would give me the exception error almost every day and then not work again until the next mornings scheduled reboot, I really do not miss it much. But I would not be surprised if Autolock is causing your problems as well.

@starwatcher What you're describing definitely makes it sound like AutoLock is the culprit in your case. However, since I've removed YATCA my Storm has only seen one crash which I know was caused by a totally different, 3rd program (not YATCA or AutoLock). Also, unlike your problem, my AutoLock seems to work fine and I would have dificulty living without it.

My only conclusion then is that AutoLock may not work well with certain other apps (some worst than others).
