View Full Version : Help me understand this crash log

Some user's of our iPad application are reporting a crash on launch of the application. Though I have the same device (and the same OS version 4.2.1) I am unable to replicate the crash on my device. I managed to get this crash log from ITC but unsure if this is related to the crash on launch issue.

Please help me analyze this crash log. Thanks in advance.

I'm sort of a newbie, but I just resolved a EXC_BAD_ACCESS that I was getting just the other day. It usually happens when you release an object and try to use it again. It seems like didReceiveMemoryWarning might be releasing something that it shouldn't be. Can you copy and paste your code?

The stack trace shows that this crash occurs when MajorIndicesController didReceiveMemoryWarning calls [super didReceiveMemoryWarning]. Crashes in objc_msgSend, like this one, happen when an object is deallocated and then its stale pointer is messaged.

NSZombies will help to figure this out. Also make sure to run Build and Analyze on your code to see if anything pops up.

I can't tell from the log what kind of object has been messaged. I would guess that it's a view that was part of the view hierarchy, although it could be an image or something else that is owned by a view in this view hierarchy.

An error like this could be caused by under-retain errors when building a view hierarchy in code or errors in viewDidUnload if this is a second memory warning. But fundamentally somewhere in your code there is an under-retain bug that is showing up during a memory warning.

One odd thing: The address 0x782e6d6f is an ascii string with the value "x.mo" In the old days it was common for a memory overwrite bug to write strings over important variables holding addresses. When the pointer is later used you would get a crash like this. Don't know if that's the case here or it's just a coincidence that the pointer holds a value that can be an ascii string. Does that string have any meaning in the context of your app?

FWIW, I would guess that this crash is not a crash on launch. You can see from threads 3 and 4 that the app has already run some internet downloads/uploads and I don't think you can get a memory warning during app startup. The app would probably just be killed if it used up all the memory at that time. I suppose it could get the memory warning very shortly after app startup so that users thought that it was crashing on startup.

You can simulate memory warnings in the simulator. Try running your app in the simulator and select "Simulate Memory Warning" from the Hardware menu to see if this triggers the error.
