 So what got updated?  The firmware still says 1.5 though the software 
says 1.16.  So when I wanted to test a form that uses RelativeLayouts 
which were fixed in 1.6 it won't run saying the phone is still 1.5.

 It was just a maintenance release update and not an upgrade to 1.6: 

Verizon confirms that Droid Eris will receive an OS update sometime in
Q1 2010: 

Trackmaster - Motorsports Lap Timer 
Dynomaster - Performance Dyno

 Problem is that the release update doesn't make that clear and a lot of 
blogs thought it was going to be for 1.6.
I got rid of a foward reference and the layout worked with 1.5.

1. Getting a delay between starting current activity after returning from startActivityForResult()

Hello guyz,

I am facing problem with starting MainActivity again and perform
remaining tasks, after returning from startActvityForREsult()

My code structrue goes like:

  // this method calls different activities of my application based on
the result of onActivityResult
   startCustomActivity() ;

//Code goes like :
Class MainActivity extends Activity{


 if( <Condition1>) {
       Intent subIntent = new Intent();
startActivityForResult(subIntent,Constant.REQUEST_SUB_SCREEN);  //

else if (<Condition 2>) {
  //start activity 2

else if (<Condition3>) {
   //start activity 3

else if (<Condition 4>) {
   //start activity 4



   if(requestCode == Constant.REQUEST_SUB_SCREEN)
        if(responseCode == RESULT_OK)
            startCustomActivity(getIntent().getAction(), getIntent());


<activity android:name=""
                  <!--    android:noHistory = true  this is not
working as well -->

                <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
//Here on GoBack button, I want to send control back to calling
Activity ii.e. MainActivity
/// code starts
GoBackButton.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
                        public void onClick(View arg0) {
                                finish();   <---------------- causing

//code ends

Whats happening is ...

My control is going back to MainActiivty on pressing GOBack button,
but the problem is since I am finishing SubAcitivty in GoBackButton
itself, it takes some time for control to go back to
onActivityResult() and do remaining task and launch another activity
say Activity 2,
as a result of which on pressing GoBack button, for few seconds ,
homeScreen (device homescreen) is dispalyed and then later, my
activity2 gets launched.

I want to remove that delay between GoBack button and launch of

I wan to end SubAcitivty as soon as user navigates away from this
activity and send back control to calling activity. I also tried
setting android:noHistory = true instead of calling finish() but
nothing is working.

Please help :(


2. is there any idea that files are only used by application those are stored on media card?


I have need in my app that files must not used by any other
application and these are mp3 files.for that i have tried encryption
of files but each time i have to do read/write operation for
encryption and decryption,

Because each time i have to decrypt the file while playing and then
encrypt it after playing.

There is also one option like
 File folder = ctx.getDir("Private Folder", Context.MODE_PRIVATE); but
i cant use because of mp3s.

so can anyone suggest me what  i can do to achive this?
