A memory technology that does not lose data even after complete power loss. In modern PalmOS handhelds, NAND flash memory chips are used.
Palm’s non-volatile file system, the part of PalmOS which uses a fixed block of normal RAM memory to speed up access to data stored in NAND flash memory.
The fixed block of normal RAM memory used by NVFS to speed up file access.
Keep your device stable, up-to-date, and running smoothly with TealScan, the comprehensive system utility for PalmOS handhelds. Divided in four separate screens, TealScan offers numerous tools to keep your handheld healthy and happy:
Use the TealScan Status Screen to view a
snapshot of your device’s health or for detailed information about three vital
Use the TealScan Scan Screen to check your
device for potential problems that can cause instability or other problems.
Use the TealScan Maintain Screen to free memory
and clean your device of temporary or unused data files and preference
Use the TealScan Tools Screen to keep your software up to date or perform other useful operations or repairs.
While applications can crash due to bugs, conflicts, and other problems, TealScan can detect and fix many of the systemic causes of seemingly “random” problems that occur, particularly on devices with non-volatile memory.
Here is an overview of suggested strategies and how to tackle them.
See the following chapters for detailed instructions on using each tool.
Use the TealScan Scan Screen to find background apps that fail to lock their code resources or protect their program files properly. Running older apps with these problems are the primary cause of crashes on devices with non-volatile memory.
You can also monitor the NVFS graph on the Status Screen to watch for crashes that coincide with a full NVFS cache. If found, you can identify background apps using the Background Process Status Screen and manually lock files using the Lock/unlock apps in memory tool on the Tools Screen.
Crashes can sometimes be caused by apps that forget to unlock records that they access. Monitor the locked percentage count on the NVFS graph of the Status Screen. If the count goes up unexpectedly after running a particular app, it may indicate an application bug that can cause crashes and lost data.
If a particular app crashes when certain background apps are enabled, that app may not request enough stack space for the background apps to run. Use the Set Application Stack Space tool to boost the amount requested by the app.
Use the Monitor Saved Preferences option on the Maintain Screen to prevent system settings from mysteriously being lost after a system reset, an unexplained problem that is known to occur on some devices.
After several years, PalmOS devices tend to accumulate stray settings and files left over from old applications that have long since been removed. These take up space and can slow down your handheld. TealScan can help you clean your device with the following Maintain Screen tools. See the following chapters for detailed instructions on using each tool.
Finds and optionally removes preference entries that are not linked to a known application on the device
Finds and optionally
removes data files that are not linked to a known application on the device
The TealScan Status Screen contains four real-time graphs for instant information and three buttons for getting detailed system details.
Displays the current battery status, level, and voltage.
Displays the total, used, and free amount of main memory present on the device. The values listed here refer to storage memory used for files and applications, and does not include external SD cards or dynamic application working memory.
It is usually a good idea to leave a sizeable amount of free memory available. We recommend leaving a Megabyte or more free on newer devices as working space for apps and temporary storage for apps launched from external cards.
On newer devices with non-volatile memory, the Palm Non-Volatile File System (NVFS) uses slow flash memory for all long-term storage. For speed, it keeps a copy of all files currently being used in a block of normal RAM memory known as the DBCache.
The DBCache starts off empty after a system reset. * Whenever PalmOS or applications access files, they are first loaded into the cache. When the file is no longer needed, it is left in the cache for quick access in the future. This is normal, and causes the cache to slowly fill up the longer a device is used. When the cache is completely full, PalmOS “flushes” it of any unused (unlocked) files to make space for new files.
* NOTE: Immediately after a normal system reset, PalmOS calls every app to notify it of the reset. This fills the DBCache with a copy of every app in memory.
The NVFS graph shows the total amount of memory in the DBCache, as well as how many files are stored or locked within it. Use this graph to watch for two potential problems:
When the DBCache fills up and is flushed by PalmOS, any unlocked applications and data are copied back to flash memory and removed from the cache. This is not usually a problem, but can trigger crashes when running background applications that have not been properly updated to be NVFS-compatible.
Often, these problems occur with popup programs, drivers, or other apps with “background” functionality—that is—they can do something even when you are inside another app. If these apps do not properly lock themselves down, you will get random crashes that coincide with the DBCache filling up or when doing large data operations (such as backups) in other programs.
If your device occasionally crashes, watch the NVFS graph to see if the crashes coincide with the DBCache getting full. If so, you may have a background app that does not properly lock itself down. Try turning “off” or removing any suspect apps to fix the problem. If you find an incompatible app, look for an updated version or try using the TealScan “lock applications” tool to try to fix the problem. You can use the BG Process button (below) to identify background apps.
A similar problem can occur when a buggy application leaves files locked after it is done with them. When this happens, the cache fills up with locked records, and PalmOS slowly runs out of usable space.
If your device occasionally crashes, watch the total percentage of locked memory displayed on the NVFS graph. This number should be relatively small (typically a few percent) and should not continually increase with normal use. Typically, it should only increase when enabling a feature in a program that needs to run “in the background” and it should go back to its previous value when disabling that feature.
If the locked memory percentage goes up significantly and unexpectedly after running a program, that program may have a bug that needs to be fixed.
Displays the current phone or wi-fi signal level, if applicable. The voicemail message count may also be displayed on phones that support querying voicemail through PalmOS.
Select the following buttons for a detailed report: reports may be copied to a new memo or printed if TealPrint is installed.
Displays miscellaneous information about the current device, processor, operating system, and user profile.
Displays information about the memory storage heap used to store files. On devices with non-volatile memory, the storage heap is the temporary storage area known as the DBCache. On older devices, the storage heap is the actual dynamic RAM used to store all files.
Displays information about all applications and system components registered for background notifications.
PalmOS normally runs
only one application at a time. Under
PalmOS 5, applications (popup programs, drivers, hacks, etc) that need to run
code while another application is active must register for system notifications
that launch the app in response to user input or special system events.
The background process list shows a list of active notifications and the apps that registered for them, if known. Notifications are listed by their 4-letter notification ID, which specifies the type of event that triggers the application launch. Notification IDs can include standard PalmOS events (see Appendix A) or those defined by third party applications.
NOTE: When the text “(Callback)” is listed next to a notification, it means that the app is called using a direct function pointer. This means PalmOS will not look for apps before launching them but will instead use a fixed memory address. This is important because
apps using this
notification method improperly can cause crashes if they aren’t locked
properly. See the next chapter for ways
to detect and fix this problem.
The TealScan Scan Screen contains tools to
detect and fix common problems caused by corrupted data or unstable
To run scans, highlight the operations you wish to perform and select “Scan for Issues” to start a scan. A list of files with potential issues will be shown.
To fix or view more information on a particular file,
highlight it and select Info.
Select Fix on the following screen to attempt to repair the problem.
To automatically fix all issues of a particular type, highlight the bolded header for that issue type and select Info. Choose Fix All to fix all issues without individual confirmation for each file. (New in 1.10)
Scans the contacts database for entries that have been truncated or are followed by extra invalid data blocks (called “blobs”). These corrupted entries can cause data corruption or crashes when HotSyncing or running applications that use contact data.
Scans the memos database for entries that are missing a null terminator. These corrupted entries can cause data corruption or crashes when HotSyncing or running applications that display or import memos. (New in 1.10)
Scans the PIM (calendar, contacts, tasks, and memos) databases for empty deleted records. Empty records contain no data and can be created by low memory conditions, bugs, or aborting newly-created records.
Left alone, empty records are mostly harmless but can cause card backup operations to fail because the PalmOS card database format does not support zero-size records. If any are found, select Fix to remove all zero-size records from the indicated database.
Scans the PIM (calendar, contacts, tasks, and memos) databases for records that have been marked for deletion but mistakenly have not also been marked for archival.
When a PIM record is deleted using the standard PIM applications, a copy is temporarily kept around for the next HotSync if the option to “archive” that record is selected. Normally, the saved copies are marked as both “deleted” and “dirty” (to be archived)., but sometimes the second flag does not get properly set.
When this happens these, records can cause the PalmOS Datamanager Patch to reportedly crash on earlier NVFS devices.
Since the Datamanager Patch is used by PalmOS to emulate the older PIM database format, removing these “deleted” records can sometimes fix crashes that occur when running third party PIM apps. To do this, select Fix if any unarchived records are found.
Scans the PIM (calendar, contacts, tasks, and memos) databases for duplicate records. These “dupe” records are usually caused by problems or bugs encountered during synchronization with Outlook or Palm Desktop. Select Fix to delete one of every duplicated pair.
Scans for background apps that have registered for notifications using a direct callback pointer but have not protected their application database file. This is usually an indication of an app that is not compatible with non-volatile memory, and is a common cause of seemingly random crashes on devices running NVFS version 2 (PalmOS 5.49 or higher).
Select Fix to add the listed app to the list of TealScan Locked Applications, accessible under the Tools Screen.
Scans for background apps that have registered for notifications using a direct callback pointer but have no locked code resources. This is usually an indication of an app that is not compatible with non-volatile memory, and is a common cause of seemingly random crashes on devices running any version of NVFS.
Select Fix to add the listed app to the list of TealScan Locked Applications, accessible under the Tools Screen.
The TealScan Maintain Screen contains tools to find and optionally clean temporary and unused data off your handheld. Use it to free space and speed up your device. It also features a special tool to monitor and protect the Saved Preferences database,and a menu item to restore previously deleted files and settings.
Highlight the tools you want to run and select “Run Selected Tasks” to scan for cleanable data.
Highlight an item and select “Info” to view more information about a result and optionally clean it.
To automatically clean all files/preferences of a particular type, highlight the bolded header for that issue type and select Info. Choose Delete All to fix all issues without individual confirmation for each file. (New in 1.10)
Scans memory for known temporary files, such as those created by aborted beaming attempts or the Nutshell application installer. Temporary files are usually safe to delete.
Scans memory for known cache files, such as those created by web browsers or email applications. Cache files are designed to increase application speed and are usually safe to delete. However, they may contain data—such as cached web pages—that will have to be regenerated or reloaded the next time they are needed.
On devices running PalmOS5 without NVFS, this tool finds the special ‘a68k’ files that PalmOS creates every time a new application is run. These helper files can be safely deleted to temporarily free memory, but they’ll quickly be regenerated each time a new app is run.
PalmOS maintains a shared database called Saved Preferences that is used by applications to store settings and other information. Properly written applications store their data using the same 4-letter Creator-ID used by the application. PalmOS uses this ID to match up the preference entries with applications so it knows to delete them when the application is removed from the handheld.
Orphan Preference Entries
are settings that cannot be positively linked to any apps or libraries on the
device or SD card. They can indicate
either left over data from old applications or data that is currently being
used but from poorly written apps that use the wrong Creator-ID value for them.
If unused Orphan Preference Entries are allowed to accumulate, they can take up precious space and slow down your device. To prevent this from happening, run this tool with a current copy of the TealScan App Database. TealScan will use the database to automatically recognize and filter out orphans known to be linked to apps on your handheld. What’s left will be a list of Orphan Preferences that may be candidates for removal.
For each entry in the list, TealScan will use its database to identify which application created them, if possible.
To be safe, you should leave any preference entries that come up as “unknown.” You can safely delete them only if
1) TealScan can identify the app that created it, and
2) You recognize this app as one you no longer need.
If you decide to be more aggressive
in your trimming and mistakenly delete an entry, you can use the “Restore
Cleaned Data” menu (below) to restore the preference entry.
An application’s preference entries are only removed if it is deleted using the Palm application launcher. If it is deleted using a file manager or other program, the entries can be left as orphans. Applications run from an SD card can also leave orphans, as entries created by card-based apps are never deleted. Finally, applications that use the wrong Creator-ID for their settings will always leave orphan entries behind because PalmOS will think they belong to another app.
Orphan Data Files are files that cannot be linked to any apps or libraries on the device or SD card. Like Orphan Preference entries, they can be left over from previously run applications or be the result of apps that are poorly designed and use the wrong Creator-ID for its files. You handle orphan data files in a similar way.
If unused Orphan Data Files are allowed to accumulate, they can take up precious space and slow down your device. To prevent this from happening, run this tool with a current copy of the TealScan App Database. TealScan will use the database to automatically recognize and filter out orphans link to apps on your handheld. What’s left will be a list of orphan preferences that may be candidates for removal.
For each entry in the list, TealScan will use its database to identify which application created them, if possible. To be safe, you should leave any preference entries that come up as “unknown.” You can safely delete them only if
1) TealScan can identify the app that created it, or
2) You recognize the associated app by filename, and
3) You recognize this app as one you no longer need
If you decide to be more aggressive
in your trimming and mistakenly delete an entry, you can use the “Restore
Cleaned Data” menu (below) to restore the file.
NOTE: Some applications purposely use a different Creator-ID for their data files, intending them to be used by multiple apps. If they are recognized by the TealScan database as a “shared” file, they will appear instead as a Shared Data File (below).
An application’s data files are only removed if it is deleted using the Palm application launcher. If the app is deleted using a file manager or other program, the data files can be left behind. Applications run from an SD card will also leave orphans after the app is deleted. Lastly, applications that use the wrong Creator-ID for their data files will always leave orphans behind no matter how they are deleted.
Shared Data Files are potential orphans that use a format known to be used by more than one app. For instance, icon formats linked to one app are sometimes adopted by other apps, even though the original app may or may not be present.
Common Shared Data Files include:
· Shared Code Libraries
Select the Info button to get more information on a shared data file and its typical use. If you are sure you do not need it, you can delete it.
On devices with non-volatile memory—and the PalmTX in particular—a common system problem can occur after a crash or system reset. Sometimes, for no explained reason, entries disappear from the Saved Preferences database. When this happens, applications to lose settings or forget that they’ve been registered.
When Monitor and Auto-Restore Saved Preferences Database is enabled, TealScan will monitor the Saved Preferences database and update a private backup copy whenever you switch applications.
Later, when the handheld is reset, TealScan will check for lost entries. If any are found, TealScan will pop-up an information message and restore the entries from its backup copy.
When this option is enabled, TealScan will also monitor any new preferences created by applications. If any orphan entries are created, TealScan will record this info and use it in future maintenance scans.
Accessible from the main drop down menu, select this option to restore any data files or preference entries deleted during maintenance. You can select any files or preferences previously backed up to your SD card if the Backup cleaned data to external card Preference option was active at the time.
The TealScan Tools Screen contains the following useful tools. Select a tool and press “Run Tool” to start the selected function.
Use this tool to scan the TealScan App Database for any newer versions of installed applications.
The database is updated based on data automatically uploaded from other customers. If a potential update is detected, it means that another TealScan user is running a newer version of an app on your device.
Use this tool to check for system
updates for your device. This tool only
detects higher PalmOS version numbers running on your model handheld, and does
differentiate between different phone variants created for cellular carriers.
On devices with non-volatile memory, “mysterious” crashes often come apps that launch background processes without properly locking themselves down in memory.
Use this tool to manually lock suspect apps and fix any that may be unstable due to this problem. A list of all write-enabled apps will be shown, along with the number of locked code resources, total code resources, and whether the database file is protected (P) or not (U).
Adding an app on the locked applications list automatically protects the application database file and locks any application code resources.
NOTE: If you manually lock an app, you may later need to unlock it before updating or deleting it.
Use this tool to change the area code of multiple contacts. Enter a 3-digit number to find and a new number to replace it with. If any matches are found, you can choose to replace it, leave it alone, or replace all matches in one step.
Use this tool to selectively delete multiple calendar appointments by end date (if specified), by text contained in the appointment itself, or by category (as supported in newer devices).
Use this tool to selectively delete multiple contacts based on category or text they contain.
Use this tool to selectively delete multiple memos based on minimum size, maximum size, category, or on text contained within the memo itself.
Use this tool to selectively delete task entries based on due date (if specified) or by text contained in the task name.
Use this tool to set the stack space requested by any write-enabled apps in main memory.
Under PalmOS, the current foreground program (typically the last app launched by icon) sets the current application stack size. This is a special block of memory used to store temporary variables and other information.
Popup utilities, text recognizers, security apps, phone drivers, and other background programs (any code that runs while inside another app) have to share whatever stack space is left over by the current foreground app. If the stack space runs out, the handheld will typically crash.
Because of this, it’s important for all foreground applications to request more stack space than they need themselves, and for all background apps to use as little stack space as possible for maximum compatibility and stability. If an app does not request enough stack space, it may run fine by itself, but may trigger crashes or other problems when certain background apps are enabled.
If a particular foreground app becomes unstable when certain background apps are enabled, that foreground app may need its stack space boosted. Select it from the list of apps and choose Change to set a new stack size. The default system stack size is 4k (4096 bytes), so boosting the stack by 2000 bytes or so is usually effective if fixing stack-related problems.
Use this tool to help keep the TealScan Online App Database up to date. It scans your device, recording any applications or program versions that are not found in the current database. It summarizes them in a CSV-format text file that it writes to your SD card.
To help, first download the latest TealScan App Database. Then run this tool and submit the file generated to TealPoint Online Support, who can incorporate its information into the online database.
This tool will write out information about the current storage heap header to a new memo. This tool is used primarily for internal debugging purposes, and should normally be run only if requested by TealPoint Online Support.
On handhelds with Internet access, select Update TealScan Database to download the most recent copy of the TealScan App Database. TealScan will launch the registered PalmOS web browser to download a new copy of the file.
The TealScan App Database is used by TealScan to:
· Detect current application versions and potential available updates
· Detect current PalmOS versions and potential available updates
· Match Creator-IDs to known files and applications
· Link orphan data files and preference entries to associated apps
· Identify known shared file types
An online copy of the TealScan App Database is constantly updated. Before performing maintenance and update operations, we recommend downloading a current copy of the database.
Alternatively, you can manually download the database from a PC or handheld web browser at: http://www.tealpoint.com/cgi-bin/tealscan/tealscanupdate.cgi/appdb.pdb
TealScan users automatically keep the TealScan App Database up-to-date when they download it. The name, version, and Creator-ID of one or two apps on your handheld are anonymously uploaded as part of the download URL. Unlike other applications, our approach keeps the database free from errors associated with manual submissions, and allows to TealScan to detect application updates for any app no matter where the programs are distributed.
When downloading the database, the URL can get quite long, which occasionally causes problems with buggy web browsers. When this happens, turn on the Use alternate download link option in TealScan Preferences, which omits the update information and uses just the base URL above.
The following options are available on the TealScan Preferences and Custom Card Folders menus.
When enabled, this option warns if the TealScan App Database needs updating before starting a scanning, maintenance, or update operation that uses the database.
When deleting files or preferences during a maintenance scan, turn on this option to backup all removed settings and files to an inserted SD card. Files will be written to the \PALM\TealScan\ folder, and can be restored using the Restore Cleaned Data menu.
Enable this option for web browsers that cannot handle the long download URL used to download the database. This option uses an alternate short URL that does not share information to help update the online database.
Use this option to force TealScan to use a specified application to download an updated database. The selected application must be a browser that supports the system sysAppLaunchCmdGoToURL launch code. (New in 1.10)
Use this option to switch the TealScan signal display from WiFi to Phone signal level, or to disable it altogether. By default, TealScan will search for a Phone signal and will display the WiFi level if no phone hardware is found. (New in 1.10)
On some devices, the PalmOS telephony library can take a few seconds to respond if no phone is attached. Use this option to turn off the phone scan if this occurs.
This option enables stylish “thinline” fonts for the program interface and menus. Set this value to “All” to always use the new fonts, “None” to use standard PalmOS fonts, or “Auto” to use new fonts in everything except on-screen buttons.
The PalmOS application launcher stores card-based files in the folder \PALM\Launcher\. By default, TealScan searches this folder for applications when trying to identify orphan data or software updates.
Some third party launchers, like TealDesktop, support storing apps in any folder on SD cards. When using one of these launchers, you can use the Custom Card Folder Screen to tell TealScan to search other folders for apps.
