Out of Memory issues

Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:20 pm

After 5-10 deployments of my application I have to factory reset my device, because I start getting out of memory errors. 

Is there a way to clear memory on the device ?

This is becoming a huge waste of time & energy. 

Also it's really really really really really annoying.

I get the same thing I think (message that says "No space left on device") - I just do a system restart, doesn't take too long.

Same is happening occasionally to us since a couple of weeks. A system restart is enough, no need for a complete factory reset,

I've also noticed that deploy from eclipse plugin DOES NOT have this problem, and is about 10 times faster than other deploy methods.. how can that be?

I observed this issue when using atom-develop plugin. The lesson I learnt is when using these plugins the exclusion directory list has to be correct. If you have no exclusions the plugin zips everything in your directory path. Which will result in huge zip file, I turn would cause roku to throw out of memory error.

you sir, are a dude - that was it - the zip file included other zip files, and was up to 6mb. I think there's a memory bug with uploading anyhow - perhaps the junk files compounded that.

Though it still does it; I suspect it's a bug since the last software update; but now it does it way less.

Yes I observed this myself today, but it’s mostly once in two hours for me. I was on roku3.

On a low end Roku TV I have to factory reset 5-10 times a day. 
Nothing else works for the low end TV devices.

I still have to do it from time to time on my Roku Stick+ 3810, but not as often as on my Roku 3 4200 - I assume it's due to the memory difference.
