Problem in the Notepadv3 tutorial code...

 I've been working through the Notepad tutorial (  ) and
it's been helpful. I'm aware that the second version has a bug, that
is fixed in the third stage. However, the third stage (Notepadv3)
still has a problem:

 Choose "Add Note", then change the orientation. The note editing
activity crashes when the orientation changes, in
ActivityThread.performPauseActivity() with a NullPointerException. I'm
not quite familiar enough with this platform to figure out what the
issue is. I thought it had something to do with saving the row, but I
thought I fixed that and it still bombs out.

 It's easy to reproduce the problem in the debugger. Can anyone
explain what causes the crash? This might be a very good thing to get
fixed; I presume a fair number of developers are going to look at that
code and assume it's "the way to do it"... Thanks for any help y'all
can provide!

1. Add a contact and get the LookUp key pertaining to it.

Hello everybody,

I want to add a contact(accepting the contact details from my the
application's activity) and after adding it, I would like to retrieve
the LookUp key pertaining to it.

I was able to add a contact using the following tutorial,

But, In the above tutorial, the adding of contact it performed using
RawContactId and thus, I'll have access only to the RawContactId.

But, my application needs a LookUp key( not a RawContactId ) for
accessing the Contacts.

I found a solution(I am going to try it now) for this problem at,
But, the solutions is little bit complicated(for a novice like me).

Please, provide some suggestions/code snippets which can help me out
in getting the LookupId for a contact that is added just now,
(provided, we have the RawContactId of the newly added contact).

Thanks for any help, in advance.


2. latest update ruins my orientation data

Hi all,

I'm developing a game and was using the orientation data to move the
player camera. All worked fined untill i updated my nexus s yesterday
and now my orientation data is giving strange results.

When I lay the phone on it's back and not move it,
the azimuth flips between -0.4 and 77
the pitch between -0.3 and 3
and the roll between -2 and 9.5

Values are estimates and there are no inbetween values, so it's either
-2 or 9.5
This causes the camera to flip between these values and is no good to

Has anyone ever had this and know how can i fix this.
Many thanks for your help.
