I'd like to create a map application using the new google maps.
My country (Israel) appears in the maps included in the android 2.1
and not in 1.5 and 1., so i'd like to develop an application using the
2.1 maps, but each time I am tryin, it shows me the old maps...

1. HTC Hero cannot search some applications found in Market


Some of the users notified me that they were not able to find my apps
in Market, where me and others can. After some investigation, i found
that HTC Hero cannot see apps on Market that having "Copy Protection"

This sound strange but we cant see any other cause that possible lead
this result. Some of the examples app are "HKTV Guide" (copy
protection enabled), "Wand" (no copy protection), "Chm Reader" (copy
protection), "Bubbles" (no copy protection) and "AirPainter" (copy

Would you know if this is limit of Hero, or a bug, or a parameter or
something else? Any input is greatly appreciated.


2. Does onActivityResult get called when an activity is recreated?

I have a flow A->B->C->D where A desires some information that is
obtained by D. B, C, and D propagate the data back through the flow
using setResult(RESULT_OK, data) and finish(). All intents in A, B,
and C are started with startActivityForResult. However, if B is
reclaimed by Android and forced to call onCreate again after C
finishes onActivityResult in B is never called and the data never
makes it back to A.

Is there a way I can be sure that onActivityResult will be called?
