How To Eliminate Preferences Values Database?

 Dear all,

I have a PreferenceActivity whose structure is described in a
preferences.xml file:
we know this leads to construct a GUI interface trough which you can
change the value of our preferences

For testing purposes I have changed the value of one preference
(android:key="my_value") from a class external to my
PreferenceActivity, trough editor.putBoolean("my_value", value);

now each time the PreferenceActivity is started, I have an exception.

How can I reset "my_value" ?

Thanks in advance!

Manually, you can reset it by deleting the preferences data in your 
emulator -- it's an XML file found in:


You can use adb shell, DDMS's File Explorer, or the like to get rid of 
the file.

 Yea Delete your prefrence data... be sure that the xml can not convert
to rss! Then delete the older file from the explorer.

You realize that RSS is just an XML file with a particular schema, yes?

 Guys, I have used the DDMS's File Explorer to get rid of preferences
XML and it works fine.

2. cf.locale.getCountry() (language error)

Hi, hope you can help

I try to get the local language with : cf.locale.getCountry()
usualy it works. BUT
on G1 US-Version, when "spanish" is in prefs/local
i get "" as responds. Now I did ""=spanish
"us"=english etc.

But now I hear from some german G1 Users that it starts
on their G1 in Spanish?

Totaly confusing. In my Emulator i get a clear "de" when
German is selected. So what now, does German G1
Phones give even a "" back when its standart.

Is this a bug or what?
