In a manner of speaking. It really kinda depends on what else you're
using this Service for.

1. android.database.StaleDataException: Access closed cursor

*android.database.StaleDataException: Access closed cursor*

I have activity A and I used managedQuery in Activity A. I have an adpater
which extends from BaseAdapter. In GetView I access the mcursor to get

If I click a button on Activity A it goes to B, A---> B

The problem arises when I am in activity B *and it's visible(B), the error
is thrown from Acitivity A. *

I dont understand why I get the error from Activity A. Activity B is visible
now and A is in background.

There was a post already on this group with similar error but there was no

I was hoping if someone encountered this and found a solution.

Thanks in advance for your response.


2. HTC Incredible suffering a reset while service running.

Beta tester has reported that while my service is running, the phone
reboots itself. Two beta testers have both reported this, both on the
HTC Incredible.

I can think of what I would do to cause a soft reset if I were trying,
which I'm not. After 5-10 minutes or about 1000 files downloaded, the
phone resets as if it were just powered up.

I am aware that what the service is doing probably puts some amount of
stress on the phone - downloading 1000s of small files and writing
them to the storage card. But, as far as I can tell, memory usage
should be fairly flat and is not monotonically increasing. I am not
able to cause a similar crash on my wimpy G1 nor on a 2.1 emulator
even after hours of similar conditions.

One of them has sent me a log from XtraLogic Log Collector. It had
nothing useful and doesn't seem to show anything before the crash.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to track this down?

Does anyone know, in general, what would cause a reset on an HTC

The only suspicion I would go on is some sort of memory overrun. I
think that would kill the service before it brought the phone down,
but who knows.
