    My application is using modern preference headers. I need to support
    compatibility with Gingerbread. The PreferenceHeaders work fine
    with post GingerBread.
    I am following this guide for legacy compatiblity.
    The initial PreferenceScreen loads fine. However, whenever
    selecting one of the entries, I get the following exception:
    android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit
    activity class {com.example.android.misterhouse.activity/
    have you declared activity in your AndroidManifest.xml?
    For some reason, my Intents are not binding the the SettingsActivity.
    The reference example doesn't want to work properly. I have attempted
    three different means of identifying the targetClass. None of these
    attempts works.
    Might anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
    PreferenceScreen and AndroidManifest follow below.
    Thanks, Jim
    Here is my PreferenceScreen:
    android:summary="@string/pref_settingsTitle_summ" >

    android:action="com.example.android.misterhouse.activity.SETTINGS" />
    android:summary="@string/pref_connectionsTitle_summ" >

    android:action="com.example.android.misterhouse.activity.CONNECTIONS" />
    android:title="@string/pref_aboutTitle" >



    android:action="com.example.android.misterhouse.activity.ABOUT" />
    And finally, my AndroidManifest:
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
    android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    android:name=".activity.SettingsActivity" >

    How about
    <intent android:targetPackage="com.example.android.misterhouse.activity"
    android:targetClass="SettingsActivity" />

    I am trying to find a developer that understands USB devices. Basically I
    have a MK802 Android 4.0 device. I am trying to connect a USB Resistive
    touchscreen to it, but it does nothing. I here that Google stripped that
    out to keep Android light, since most devices now use capacitive screens.
    How would I go about finding a developer to add resistive touchscreen back
    into my devices.

    Basically I am using these for a Google powered car system. It features a
    MK802 in each seat, a MK808 for shared use. As of now they work great in
    the car, except the touchscreens will not work.

    Any help or advice would be great. I have searched all mighty Google, but
    all the information is fragmented or not understandable to me. The MK802,
    and MK808 are rooted if that makes a difference.

    Under what circumstances will getBestProvider return NULL and what is
    the best way to handle it?
    My app uses the provider to determine the current location. If
    getBestProvider returns NULL I request an update from NETWORK on the
    assumption that there is always a NETWORK provider even if the GPS is
    not available. What does it mean if there is no "best"? Doesn't
    Android automatically relax my criteria until it finds a match? And why
    would a device would not have a NETWORK provider?

    T> Check for null?
    I'm already doing that! If I get NULL I hard-code a request to the
    NETWORK provider. Under certain circumstances I'm crashing my app since
    I assumed (stupidly) that when "best" returns NULL I can still access
    NETWORK. I guess when "best" returns NULL it really means there ain't
    nothing available to satisfy my request.

    That was really the core of my question. If "best" returns NULL I have
    to assume that I cannot determine the location - and then do something

    Yes, texture mapping is fairly standard and is very well supported.
    BAI means "Binary Asset Import" and is a compact memory-safe format of the
    internal structure of the open asset importer library. We did create it
    ourselves but it's simple, easy to maintain and extend and fully compatible
    with version 2 of that library, which is why you can easily add more
    formats to the engine.

    I have an application that uses the Camera and SurfaceView to take
    pictures. When I take photos by Galaxy S2 or smaller devices the picture
    resolution is perfect. But when I try to take pictures by Galaxy S3 or
    tablets the picture resolution is too low. I use the following code:
    camera.takePicture(null, callBack, callBack, callBack);
    private PictureCallback callBack = new PictureCallback() {
    public void onPictureTaken(byte[] data, Camera camera) {
    if (data != null) {
    Any idea how to solve this? Thank you.
    Sorry for my bad English.

    Yes. Based on your code, you aren't specifying the image size, so you
    get what the device sets as the default. While working on my camera app,
    I have seen devices that set the maximum as the default, and some that
    set the minimum as the default. You need to determine the available
    image sizes for the device the app is running on (see camera.parameters)
    and either select one, or better still, let the USER select the image
    size THEY want to use. The user might want the max, or they might want
    a smaller image (say, for sending in an e-mail, using in a web page,
    etc., without having to resize it). Again, see camera.parameters.

    Recently many users were complaining about a virus in my app. This is
    really annoying because I am losing many new users (my app has >150.000
    I checked with AVG and AVAST and neither of them found any viruses on my
    phone (I downloaded my app from the market before I scanned the whole
    Both of them checks the newly installed apps at first run and neither of
    them found any virus. I scanned my whole phone as well.
    My guess is that these people are using bad antivirus applications.
    Any ideas?

    Does the souce code contain only code that you wrote, or did you
    include a third party library that you did not write? I am assuming
    that if the code is all yours you would know well enough whether you
    put a virus in it.

    > My guess is that these people are using bad antivirus applications.
    Or a pirated version that may have malware injected. Or you are using
    and ad network that gets classified as malware by some AVs. Try to
    get the APK from a user, and do a search for your app in popular
    all-you-can-eat Android sites.
    'Bad antivirus' is actually not too likely. Even if some AV misclassifies
    your app as virus/malware, the chance of multiple AVs doing it is
    quite small.

    A virus? On a Unix-based OS? Last time I checked, this wasn't possible.
    On a windoze system, sure, a virus can have a field day. But file/group
    permissions alone can block a virus. Now...a worm is another story. But
    I'm still skeptical, even there. What are your users (or should that be
    lusers?) claiming it's doing?

    I would focus on your force close error and fix that one instead of trying
    to work around other apps.

    I can second the map panning effect. That seems to be able to lock up some
    older devices (with less RAM, or poorly managed RAM?) randomly.

    I have seen this post, however it does not support 4.x
    android devices.

    I have a couple of fragments which substitute one for another. The UI of
    these fragments changes and I need to hold it's new state. So the code
    looks pretty trivial:
    FragmentManager fragmentManager = getSupportFragmentManager();
    FragmentTransaction fragmentTransaction = fragmentManager
    if (mStepTwo == null) {
    mStepTwo = new QuizStepTwo();
    } else {
    fragmentTransaction.replace(R.id.step_holder, mStepTwo);
    However when I replace the second step with the first, for instance by
    pressing the back-button,- its' UI state rolls back to initial.
    How do I hold the state ? OnSaveInstanceState ? or something more
    comfortable ?
