EMERGENCY - 1.5.2 patch - now can't launch

Around 4:30 AM EST I updated my game to v1.5.2. The patch has caused my game to be unable to launch so now I'm locked out of my server and my fleets are going to get wiped! Help !!

I'm running the game on older hardware: first gen iPad 16G wifi only. The game had memory issues before (often crashing out to the desktop and needing a re-launch) but at least it worked most of the time. Now it just shows black screen for a fraction of a second and you catch the merest glimpse of the logo splash screen starting to show up when it throws you back out to desktop. The icon still shows in multitask as if it is running but you can't switch to it successfully (same as launch). Yes, I have tried turning off and rebooting my iPad and it didn't make any difference. I also tried deleting the game from the iPad, rebooting, and then installing it from scratch and this likewise made no difference.

I hope you Devs are reading the forums at this hour ... my little space empire is crying out for protection while I am locked out of the server.

UPDATE: I forgot to meniton that I am running iOS v5.1.1, which is the highest version that this hardware can run.

I got exactly the same problem. After I updated the game to version 1.5.2, the game stopped running. I've been playing on 1st gen iPad 16GB wifi, model A1219, with iOS 5.1.1 installed.

Pass Kit Framework is available in ios6.0 and later. But it stated in AppStore that the min version of iOS required to run the app is 4.3.

So what? At least you can run the game, thus your problem is ridiculous.

you may try to download the game from app store instead of using in game updating, see if it works.

I am not able to run the game at all. Gulguth has provided detailed description of what happens exactly with the app.

It does not work too. I already tried to delete the game and install it again from AppStore.

The game just crashes at launch, that's it. Please find the crash log I posted above. You can show it to your developers.
