RC-29: access to 3G data network going down after onResume()?

 Anybody willing to check out a problem I found on the G1 I have?

When testing the app I am working on, I am mainly using WLAN in order
to have relatively constant up-/download characteristics (speed/
latency). No need to weight T-mobile's network down either. One
concern is the coming back to live after receiving an onResume(). I've
tested this on WLAN and it checks out fine.
Then on to test on T-Mobile's 3G network. This test coincided with an
OTA update to RC-29 this morning. I am seeing strange things now. Of
particular concern is the following: Access to the 3G data network
completely breaks down (without the network going down (;->)). This
happens with any app that accesses the Internet, including Maps or the
browser. Here's what happens on my G1: Put the phone to sleep. Let it
sit for maybe 15 or 30 minutes, then bring it back to life (e.g. push
Menu button twice) and without delay start requesting data by moving
the map around. This seems to fall into a window where the phone is
not quite ready to access the data network. It's perfectly fine to
require a couple of seconds to reconnect to the network, but once it
has, everything should be back to normal. Not on my phone. When I
perform the above test, the phone/Android completely loses access to
the data network. I can reproduce this all time, assuming the phone
has been sleeping long enough. The only remedy is to restart the
phone.  TIA.

1. HELP: How to Packaging a Database in an App

Hi, All,

I am new to the world of Android, and I have quick question.  I have
an app that uses an existing SQLite database (in a .db file), and how
do I package the .db file along with my application?  I understand
that I can use "adb push" to drop the file to the emulator/device, but
I would like to release the .db file as part of my application
package.  So, do I need to make the .db file as a project resource?
And if so, how to do tell the system to copy it to the right directory
(/data/...) on the device.

Thanks in advance!


2. Android Patches Mechanism


 I have seen lot of patches for android at www.android.git.kernel.org , the
latest release of android kernel is mentioned as September 2008. I would
like to know how can one decide which patch to be used , reference to every
patch is given w.r.t the time stamp of patch release, does it mean if any
patch with is say, 1 month old (september release of android kernel)can be
applied to the kernel or is there any limitation regarding this?

if anyone could help me out in understanding in application of patches with
android  it would be help for me.
