Android :: Force Closes In App After Donut OTA

Oct 8, 2009

I'm getting reports from users about force closes in my app after the donut OTA. One of them was kind enough to send me a logcat which included these two gems (right after he installed it from market):

10-02 15:56:35.708 D/PackageManager(71): New package installed in / data/app/ 10-02 15:56:35.708 W/PackageManager( 71): Unknown permission in package 10-02 15:56:35.708 W/PackageManager( 71): Unknown permission android.permission.READ_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS in package

The second one makes sense, since that name has gone away. But I can't figure out why the first one would show up, since that permission should exist on the phone. anybody got any clues? I can't reproduce this on my phone, so it's kinda hard to debug.

Android :: SugarSync Force Closes After Donut 1.6 Update

Oct 15, 2009

I spent a month stocking my SugarSync folder full of files and entertainment for my big vacation. On day one of my trip the Donut 1.6 update came through and now SugarSync force closes constantly, haven't been able to use it since. I've been emailing the developers and they refuse to see a connection (despite several comments in the Market of other users blaming 1.6). Is there a chance it isn't 1.6 and how can I fix this? I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times with no improvement. It was an awesome app when it worked, I'll be damn sorry to have to delete it.

Android :: Application Force Closes On 1.6 - SDK / Image Available Yet?

Android :: Service With MediaPlayer Force Closes

Aug 1, 2010

I have a Service with a MediaPlayer which streams audio from the Internet but when I press the Home button and it goes back to the home screen it Force Closes. It's strange though because it works perfectly in the emulator and sometimes it doesn't Force Close on my phone (G1), when I've just turned it on.

This is my code:

Android :: Force Closes When The Voice Prompt?

Jul 5, 2010

Would anyone have an idea as to why an app would work on almost every phone that has 2.1 but not the Desire?

One of my apps uses voice input and the Desire is the only phone that force closes when the voice prompt comes up.

The worst part is that I don't know how to test this, I don't have one or know anyone who does.

I finally found out that HTC disabled voice in the Desire and you have to do a work around to install it.

So if you are relying on voice input make sure you use the code in the google example to catch the error:

Android :: Starting App When GPS Is Enabled Force Closes

Nov 4, 2010

My app works when GPS is disabled, but FC's when starting while GPS is enabled. On a cold start it offers the option to turn on the GPS. After doing that, pressing the back arrow button it returns to the app activity (although the GPS icon is not visible in the status bar, on a side note, how do I get it to display here?).

I exit the application by pressing the back button or using the menu option whilst GPS is still on.
Now, when I try to start the app, it FC's. The blinking GPS icon appears behind the FC message and disappears when I acknowledge the FC.

Here is the code:


And this is the logcat from eclipse:

Android :: People Force Closes - Cannot Add / Link Contact

Jun 15, 2010

I'm having an issue linking my wife to her Facebook profile in the contact "people." When she calls her number comes up. After I hang up, I try to "connect with person already in contacts" and it forces "People" to close. I tried to add her manually and it deleted it before my very eyes while I was within "people." I did it using the Google phonebook and not the phone's. Is there any issue with this, and what's the difference between the Google and Phone options (benefits, etc... ?).

Android :: Local Service Not Registering - Force Closes

May 6, 2010

Essentially my problem is this, I open my Activity. It binds to a local service that "appears" to be connected. I get a force close when I press the back button:

"IllegalArgumentException: Service not registered" when unbind is called in my onPause method...
public void onPause() { super.onPause(); if (isFinishing()) {
if (mConnection != null){ Log.i(TAG,"onPause, mConnection" + mConnection.toString());
mDbS.unbindService(mConnection); }else { Log.i(TAG,"mConnection is null");
} The service is bound in onCreate // bind to our sdCard database using our Service Connection
mServiceIntent = new Intent(this,DatabaseService.class);
if(bindService(mServiceIntent, mConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE)){
Log.e(TAG, "service bound"); }else{ Log.e(TAG, "service not bound");
} bindService is returning true.

My Service connection is as follows. onServiceConnected is called and goes to completion. onService Disconnected is never called (presumably because my service is in same process)
private ServiceConnection mConnection = new ServiceConnection() {
public final String TAG = "LoadView.ServiceConnection"; //$NON- NLS-1$
public void onServiceConnected(ComponentName className, IBinder service) {
mDbS = ((LocalBinder<DatabaseService>) service).getService(); .....
stuff not relevant.... Log.i(TAG, "finished onServiceConnected");
//$NON-NLS-1$ } public void onServiceDisconnected(ComponentName className) {
Log.e(TAG, "onServiceDisconnectedCalled"); //$NON-NLS-1$ } };

The only thing I do a little different is that I don't use an inner class in my service for the Binder object - I use a separate class. This is mostly because I have several databases and wanted code I could reuse and set up simply rather than worry about all the ins and outs and memory leak issues.

import android.os.Binder; import android.util.Log;
public class LocalBinder<S> extends Binder { private String TAG = "LocalBinder";
private S mService; @SuppressWarnings("unused") private LocalBinder() {
} public LocalBinder(S service){ mService = service;
} public S getService() { return mService;
} public void finalize(){ mService = null;
try { //TODO reinstate this after Issue 8046 is resolved
//super.finalize(); } catch (Throwable e) { Log.e(TAG,"Unable to finalize Binder");
} } }

Android :: New App Update Force Closes Immediately On Startup

Mar 31, 2009

This morning, we updated our app on AM; this was our first update since release of Android 1.1.

In testing, on the emulator and with the signed .apk installed on our handsets, everything appeared to be working fine; however, we uploaded to AM, selected the new CopyProtection option, and published. Wertago disappeared for about 30 minutes, and as soon as it reappeared, we downloaded, installed, and started. Immediately upon starting, we got a force close and were never able to get the app started at all.

We've seen some discussions about similar app behavior experienced by other developers, and there was mention of likely bugs in AM or in the Copy Protection scheme. Has this been confirmed by Google, is there any communication from them about a coming fix, or anything like that?

Here's a little detail about what we gather from the logcat output. Our app appears to fail upon attempting to open/create the database; the relevant line is:

tmpDatabase = instance.openOrCreateDatabase(SEARCH_DATABASE_NAME, Context.MODE_PRIVATE, null);

which throws the sqlite3_open_v2 error.

Android :: 1.6 SDK WebView - Application Force Closes Every Time

Sep 29, 2010

I've narrowed down the problem to WebView; my application force closes every time. If I take out the WebView and put in a color change button or something, the case switching works and the application loads. I'm fairly new to the plaform, but I'm (mostly) copying directly from examples here for WebViews.

Android :: Snap Photo Pro Force Closes Occasionally Along With Other Malfunctions

Mar 12, 2009

I've been using Snap Photo since early on, and it was cool. Then I bought Pro. I went through several updates and checked out all the features. I have to say, this application is getting worse with time! Here are all my complaints. All of these problems happen intermittently. I can never seem to reproduce the problems at will, but they've all occurred multiple times.

1. Saves corrupted pictures. This is the worst! You take a pic, it looks good on the screen. You have auto-save turned on, so it just starts saving it, and shows the spinner. Later you go look for your photo in the Pictures app and there it is with a broken-looking, gray icon instead of a thumbnail. And now it's too late to try again. This is a complete deal breaker for me. If you can't trust the app to save a photo 100% of the time then it's useless!

2. Takes a LOT longer to save a photo to the SD card than the regular photo app. I mean after the picture it taken, and the still image is on your screen, and it's showing the spinner icon as it saves. You have to wait at least 5 seconds for it to finish saving the pic. The regular app does it in two. It's probably using its own shoddy code to compress the JPEG file. Hence why you can change the quality, and why it screws up sometimes and saves a corrupted pic.

3. The app stops listening to any input at all. Several times I would be waiting for the perfect time to take a pic and would click the button nothing. Click it again Nothing! Click the on-screen button. Nothing! Press the back button to leave the app and go use the regular one. Won't even quit! I had to use the Home button and leave it running. This is almost as bad as #1.

4. The horizon line feature is a joke. I don't know why you'd want it, but that's beside the point. I would hold my phone on a level surface, like my coffee table, press the calibrate button, and the line would still be cocked at an angle by a few pixels!

5. Force closes occasionally for unknown reasons. Try to take a pic crash. Change some settings crash. Useless. It would crash at some point 1 out of 20 uses. Unacceptable.

Good thing it only cost me $1. But it's actually cost me more than that in lost photos and much frustration.

Android :: App Upgrade (with Zipalign) Causes Force Closes / Disappearing Of App Icon - Fix It?

Oct 1, 2009

Almost all our users complain that after upgrading to the newest version of our "Camera Pro" app, either the app crashes or the icon is not showing up anymore in the home screen. The problem seems to be gone after deinstalling and reinstalling the app. How can it be possible that the icon is gone? This is the first version we used zipalign on, can this have something to do with it?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Everything Force Closes

Apr 30, 2010

I've had this phone for about a month now. No problems whatsoever, until the other day. My phone was turned off. Then, it "magically" turn on ans started ringing. I turned my phone back off for a while. Later, I turned it back on and the second the home screen pops up, like 10 force close screens pop up. I can't text, internet, nothing. No settings either. I click the phone tab at the bottom and another force screen pops up, same as everything else. It also shows I have no signal at all, when normally I have almost full bars. A few days prior to this, my phone would phase in and out of service for no reason.

HTC Incredible :: Launcher Pro Force Closes

Jun 11, 2010

I figured I might try starting something up for those who are having problems with Launcher Pro. It's a great home replacement and has far better functionality than Sense does IMO. The only issue is that it seems like some people are getting a lot of FC's.

I had a good week long run without any FC's, and then after an upgrade it seems like they're back.

If anyone has found any malicious widgets or apps that don't play nicely with LP, can you please post them up here?

Then I restored with the RUU and put Fresh 1.1 on my phone. I want to switch to MoDaCo 2.2 but when I do I'm getting those force closes again.

Motorola Droid :: Force Closes On Several Applications

Jun 11, 2010

I got the droid about a month or two ago and to date I love it. The ability to customize it and the applications available are amazing. My issue though is the force closures on several applications, the ones I've had issues with are handcent, homerun battle3d, visual voicemail and helix launcher. I may have left one or two out but those are the ones I could remember off the top of my head. I emailed the developer of handcent and they were very fast in responding to my email and we spoke over google talk today at length.

We were unable to figure out the problem for sure but after I did a factory reset, handcent now works again because I love this sms app! I'm not sure about homerun battle and helix cause I no longer use either, but the factory reset fixed visual voicemail as well. After doing the f.r and handcent working again, spoke to the developer again and was asked if I had any other sms apps on my phone. Now I did have chompsms on there at one point and I was advised that this is a possible reason for the f.c issues with handcent. If this is true I would like to ask you guys who are more tech savvy than I if I'm installing certain programs on my phone that are causing the force closes.
