On cupcake builds we are unable to open IM app from main menu.
When we open the app, it gets closed immediately and adb logs show
following error.

01-07 03:28:15.939 E/ImApp ( 3147): [IM.FrontDoorPlugin] no plugins
found! bail...
01-07 03:28:16.139 E/IM ( 3147): Ignore bad IM frontdoor plugin:
ResolveInfo{43780a30 p=0 o=0
m=0x108000}. No providers found
01-07 03:28:16.139 E/IM ( 3147): [onCreate] load plugin failed, no
plugin found!

It is trying to load some thirdpartyplugins in packages/apps/IM/src/
com/android/im/app/ file.
Here it is getting plugins count zero and after that the app gets

Can any one suggest what can be wrong?
Do we need some thirdpartyplugins for this to work?
Any pointers will be very very helpful.

Thanks In advance,

1. So Who Exactly Develops Android, Again?

This is from the point of view of an Android user. As in, an end user.
I don't develop, and I wasn't planning on it. However, from my
knowledge of the open source community (in general), I felt it was
probably best to take some of the confusion being experienced by end
users to here, the community of what I assume is the developers (if
there's even a difference).

I've come to realize that it's a misconception that Android is a
Google product. Google started it, and they support it, but it's
actually developed by the Open Handset Alliance. Except when it's
being developed by random people who downloaded the source. In other
words, Android has all the characteristics of a classic open source
project: the community interaction makes it turn out great, but when
users want something, nobody knows who to talk to.

Except it IS a Google product, according to the Google-riffic brand
guideline page ( And of course
it's by Google, because there's Gmail, Google Talk, Google Accounts,
and Google Search integrated with practically everything. In fact, the
G1 says "with Google" on the back! So of course we need to talk to
Google if we, as end users, want to see changes made to Android's core
services that we feel would improve it.

So, where exactly IS Google in all this? I've searched (with Google)
all around the web to try and find out who's the key members are in
their Android department, and I can't even tell if they HAVE an
Android department.

That makes sense, though. Because this is an open source project, and
the community develops it, why would it be in the hands of one
corporation? So just talk to the community. Except Google pushed,
marketed, and branded the whole thing by themselves, so consumers and
end users and people who don't know how to compile the kernel to save
their lives assume that they're in charge of it. Except they're not.
Except when they are.

So, long story short, all of us early adopters with our snazzy new
G1s, we like our phones and we love the little green robot inside of
them, but there are some things we'd like to be improved as time goes
on. If those things are software-related, not hardware or network
related, then we don't talk to T-Mobile, we talk to the Android
developers, right? Because Android is open and free and that means
changes can be attempted much more rapidly and easily. Well, where are
they? Is it someone at Google? Is it people on these discussion
boards? Or is it a different person at a different OHA member
depending on what specific component our concern is with?

Again, I'm an end user who has no idea how the internal structure of
Android works, so I'm probably wrong about a lot and confused for no
reason about several other things. But Google (or whoever) has made it
clear (maybe) that they don't want Android to be a niche product for
programmers to tinker with, they want it to be a revolutionary OS that
will turn all of our phones into the little tiny personal computers
that they actually are. So now that idiots like us are being included
in the target market, can we perhaps have some clarification about who
we're supposed to go to for questions, suggestions, and comments?


2. slowness in Creation of List with huge items set.


ListView was designed and implemented to perform at the same speed
with 10 items or with several thousand (and more) items. You are
probably doing something wrong in the way you load your values in the
list adapter. Without knowing how your application works, it is not
possible to help you though.
