OS 1 .2: app reload doesn't take changes into account
Each time I want to update a packaged app previously installed in the simulator I have to remove the app from the app manager, and from the simulator too, and add it again. If I don't remove it from the App Manager either it isn't updated or it isn't killed and I can't see the difference. If I knew how to kill an app or if it was automatically killed it would be swell. If I don't remove it from the simulator, and remove it from the App Manager and install again, I end up with various instances of the same app in the simulator. I'm using Nightly 2013-12-06 so it's super up to date.
That should not happen. Which version of the Simulator do you use?
1.2 - the only one I can find? And *App Manager*
Soledad, what version of the Simulator do you see in the add-on manager? For example, I have "Firefox OS 1.2 Simulator 6.0pre6.20131125".
I have that one too.
I can reproduce this here, on 1.2. Soledad, until we fix that, you can kill your app with a long press on the home button.
Summary: Need to remove and re-add app for it to be actually updated → FxOS 1.2: app reload doesn't take changes into account
Soledad, can you confirm that it works for you with Firefox OS 1.3: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/labs/fxos-simulator/
So this happens because we didn't uplift attachment 821060 [details] [diff] [review] from bug 920481 to Gecko 26. I'll see if it's something we can add to Firefox OS 1.2.
Yep, it WORKS with the Firefox OS 1.3 simulator. Hopefully it can be backported to 1.2 :D
