upgrade issues and other market problems for developers

 We think we have figured out a problem with copy protection and how it
relates to upgrades.


We hope to save developers the headache and one-star ratings we have
received due to this issue (as if the one-stars related to the
inability to download!).

Google really needs to think about developers and attempt to remove
ratings and comments that are clearly related to their bugs not ours.
Otherwise, I don't think they are taking care of developers or users.

 I agree that Google needs to fix these bugs. And until they can be
fixed, at least let it be known to everyone who has a phone what the
problems are.  I'm tired of getting 1 star ratings because my app
won't fully delete right away, which is not my problem. I've even gone
so far as to say this in my description instead of what my app is
about to try and let people know before they download.  I still got an
idiot who gave a 1 star because of the deletion problem.
Google, please address these issues.

 I have this problem too. Hopefully google will fix the problem and
remove the one star rankings caused by the download issue. This is
obviosly going to affect everyone who publishes to the marketplace so
just balance it out.

 I have the problem too :(
Do I just instruct the users to uninstall and reinstall?

 I agree -these one start rankings with comments related to the
inability to download are effecting everyone now.  But when it is
resolved, it will be penalizing early adopter developers.  Can Google
resond to this?  Should this be posted in a different forum?

2. allowTaskReparenting and FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP conflict

Hi all,

I am using Android 2.0 and have the following situation:

Activity A - has the attributes android:finishOnTaskLaunch="true" and

This activity belongs to a task that has a service running and is usually
not killed, so even when I am in the home screen I see the task running on
DDMS (I will call it Task A).

It is possible to start Activity A from another application (running on Task
B). When it is launched, I assume Activity A is "reparented" to the Task A.
I assume that, because the de{*filter*} stops on the breakpoint I have set on
onCreate and I am debugging Task A only. Please, advise if this is not

So at this point, as far as I can tell, Task A has only Activity A. When in
this situation, the service running on Task A receives some event and puts a
notification on the Notification bar. This notification, if clicked, will
send an Intent that also starts Activity A (this Intent has flags

Now to the problem, what I expected is that, because of the CLEAR_TOP flag,
Activity A would be destroyed and recreated, as it has standard launch mode.
But what I observe is that another Activity A launches on top of the
previous one. When I click BACK on the new instance of Activity A, the old
instance is redisplayed, what for my use case is wrong.
Note that this only happens when launching Activity A from another
application. If I launch it from my application and click on the event on
the notification bar, it is destroyed and relaunched.

Anyone knows what could be the problem?
