Note: I am not in this scenario. There is no urgency about this. I am just curious.
The topic says it all. If I've accidentally put my 84+(SE) in push-to-test mode, and I don't have a link cable, is there any way to take it out of this mode?
(Removing the OS doesn't count, because there isn't a link cable to send a new one with.)
Edit: I meant to say Push-To-Test. Oops :-[

Go through test mode normally by going through the hardware tests. You could also remove a battery and wait several seconds. If that doesn't work, just remove all batteries including the backup and wait a few seconds.

Do you mean the ←+→+ ON/8+5+ON combination?

Indeed, good sir. More specifically the left+right+ON one, but if 8+5+ON does the same thing, that's a concern too.

But you're in push-to-test mode ;). You cannot create, edit, or run programs, nor can you run apps.

You can't. Your only option is to prevent being put in that mode in the first place, of which there are several solutions, one of which is patching the OS.

Technically speaking, what does it is the OS calling _SetAppRestrictions. If you are able to call _RemoveAppRestrictions, you can disable it.

No, it does not fix it, to my knowledge. And it cleared all my groups when I was playing with it, by the way.

Yeah, RAM clears do not work.
BrandonW, well I guess that answers the question then :(. I probably should install a PTT patch one of these days...

Does PTT force a garbage collect?

Hm, I don't know. Given that I don't notice any wait upon enabling PTT, I'd assume not.
