Exactly.   Perhaps a special button sequence to restore the default app..  If the function calls are well designed, the application code should be trivial.

This is what we did with verifone credit card terminals back in the 80s.
Worked well for many millions of devices, with lots of relatively unskilled programmers.

The manufacturer would supply some sort of "user interface" code as a 

part of the package anyway. With regard to support the response could be 

"if all the functions in OUR code work, the radio is sound. You to need 

to get support from whoever wrote your code."
