App restart after update

I am using a splash screen but it don't actually start using this  
template stack. I touch it to get version info.

I tried deleting it as suggested and I also tried stop using it and  
neither seem to work.

The revert command seems to be for the main stack and I'm not sure  
how I would actually use it in this situation.

I'm missing something.
