 hi All ,

I have submitted my ADC2 entry but there are bugs in it I m sure , as
"There is no opportunity to improve or modify an application between
the First and Second Rounds of Judging."

but Google reserved the rights of Changing it's policy . they should
allow the participant to submit upgrade/bug free  version at least
before first round of Judging. I have heard that Google will provide
special development phones for ADC2 participant . but it was not the
case,Google wants developers to code application for Google Android
platform so they have to be flexible.

So developer let's rate/reply this post  so that Google can realize
that there are many application out there in contest that are buggy
and need only Fixes NO CHANGE IN SOLE IDEA .

 I know cooperate can not change it's terms on my request ,but it's a
tradition that Google always come up with something new/innovative and
Google culture is all about fun . if a CALL A CAB can win ADC1 then
why not open bug fixing for First Round. it will also be in
headline ..............GOOGLE .

Please reply my post , so that Google at least can consider my point.

1. Sensor, Accelerometer, Orientation, RotationMatrix

Dear *.*,

I am trying to create a rotationmatrix, to know and see how the phone
is rotating.
I didn't quite find any examples of how that could be used. I do have
the data values of the accelerometer and the magnetic field values,
however they are not aligned in time. So I have two questions:

- Is it possible to get the different sensor data values at a fixed
  e.g. To read the accelerometer and magnetic field values at the same

- How to retrieve the rotation-matrix by using the getRotationMatrix()
function when we don't have aligned data.

Thanks in advance. :-)



2. Camera Exceptions on User Phones

Basic camera app - works on most phones but some users are getting one
or other of these two exceptions :

Exception Details: takePicture failed
at android.hardware.Camera.native_takePicture(Native Method)
at android.hardware.Camera.takePicture(

Exception Details: startPreview failed
at android.hardware.Camera.startPreview(Native Method)

I am using all standard camera code in terms of when to open camera,
startpreview, stoppreview, takepicture, etc :

    public void surfaceCreated(SurfaceHolder holder) {
        mCamera =;

    public void surfaceDestroyed(SurfaceHolder holder) {
        mCamera = null;

    public void surfaceChanged(SurfaceHolder holder, int format, int
w, int h) {
        Camera.Parameters parameters = mCamera.getParameters();
        parameters.setPreviewSize(w, h);

    public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event)
