Simulating flash memory

For each flash session, the BlackBerry® Smartphone Simulator creates several files named <session_name>*.dmp. Each .dmp file corresponds to a different region of flash memory. By default, the session name represents the model number of the BlackBerry device that you are simulating. For example, the flash session files for a BlackBerry 7100 Series device simulator have names such as 7100-fs.dmp, 7100-nv.dmp, and 7100-as.dmp.

When the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator starts, it loads the flash memory for the device profile; if no flash memory files exist, the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator creates new files. When the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator exits, it saves flash memory contents to the .dmp files.

The BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator saves changes to flash memory as you make them. To keep changes from overwriting the original file system, use the /load-filesystem=<session-name>-fs.dmp option. The file system will be saved to <session-name>-fs.dmp. To specify a unique session name, use the /session command prompt option.

When you reset the flash memory, the BlackBerry Smartphone Simulator removes application data and clears the .dmp files for the session.
