I have installed bitcoinandroid on my telephone, a few months ago.

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.bitcoinandroid&hl=en

today, the application crashes on startup. I have 10 btc on it.
is there a way to recover them?
the comments on the android market page look pretty negative...

all I could find in the sdcard is a "prodnet.blockchain" file.
I guess this is not where the private keys are stored.
does someone know where they are?

Note that this app is still under development and may lose your coins! Test it with small amounts.

You should contact them or at least make a thread title the creators of the software will notice

I've looked into this with Yifu awhile back

the source is here https://github.com/barmstrong/bitcoin-android

check if .android_secure has the files for that app on the SD card?

if so the prodnet.wallet file should be in there you might be able to use ADB to pull it out.

I'll send him a message on Skype to look into it.

.android_secure is a folder there should be a file named com.bitcoinandroid.asec or something similiar in there. you'll need to use the ADB tool from the SDK to pull files from the secure format, I don't know the exact structure either but Yifu should and I already messaged him about it so when he gives a reply I'll let you know,

Good work on Electrum btw! (Yifu's pretty interested in it.)

First things first... don't just uninstall the app.  You will lose your bitcoins for sure.  If you use a file explorer like "File Expert", you can backup the /data/data/de.schildbach.wallet/files folder.

1.39 kept crashing for me, so I reinstalled 1.33 over the top.  I also use titanium backup to do scheduled backups of my phone so I can restore in case of problems.
