 Dear all,
    I'm debugging opencore related app & engine. Normally, when met
engine layer crash issue, we will get the stack info printed in the
log as below.

I/DEBUG   (   33):          #00  pc 00111dac  /system/lib/
I/DEBUG   (   33):          #01  pc 00112c66  /system/lib/

I/DEBUG   (   33):          #16  pc 00110b40  /system/lib/
I/DEBUG   (   33):          #17  pc 0002affe  /system/lib/
I/DEBUG   (   33):          #18  pc 000285d4  /system/lib/
I/DEBUG   (   33):          #19  pc 0000f8cc  /system/lib/
I/DEBUG   (   33):          #20  pc 0000f438  /system/lib/

    But sometimes, we can not get these info. So it's very hard to fix
the bug at that time. Does anyone know some method to solve this
problem? Thanks!

Best Regards,

 Dear fadden,
    Thanks for your great help! The key issue is when my app crash, I can
not get the stack information now. I just wondering when will the stack info
generated and print out, when it will not, when crash met. Thanks!

Best Regards,

1. Appearance updated application as "Just in" - wait 12-14 days between updates?

Hi all,

I didn't find my recently updated application in "Just In" view after
some investigation I got answer from developer:
"If you recently released it won't show in "Just In" again, you have
to wait like 12 - 14 days or something"

Is it some new Market rule struggling with spam programs?



2. content://telephony/carriers and HTC Incredible

I have code to get the current apn that looks like:

private String m_apnString;

private void updateApn(Context ctx) {
   Cursor mCursor =
carriers"), new String[] {"apn"}, "current=1", null, null);
   if (mCursor!=null) {
     try {
           if (mCursor.moveToFirst()) {
                m_apnString  = mCursor.getString(0);
     } finally {

It seems to work on my test phone (htc hero) but I'm always getting
a null string back from the new htc incredible.

I've found:

and my test user that reported the issue says all her text messages
were erased.

Has anybody else seen/resolved something like this?

Thanks for your time!
