User Cancel - ProgressDialog

 I started an indeterminate progress dialog in my onCreate method and
then used ASync to download some info and display it to the user.
After that I dismissed the progressdialog. I don't if anyone else has
experienced this but sometimes the progress dialog is stuck in a loop
and it wont download any info. I can tell because the data arrows wont
move. The only way to cancel this is to click the Home or Search key.

I have never been able to figure out how to debug my applications but
I was rather wondering if this is a common problem or if there is a
simple fix.

 I believe if you use the following method, the back button should
dismiss the progress dialog, without closing the app:

User Cancel - ProgressDialog

 Works, thank you. The class documentation isn't all there for some
reason. Found a whole bunch of stuff in the code auto-completion in
Eclipse though.

1. How does FW upgrade work without erasing user data?


I'm trying to understand what happens under the covers when *end-
users* upgrade their device firmware from Android ver. X to X+1
(regardless of whether they initiate the action, or their carrier
sends the update OTA).

I'm working on an Android based device, and I need to understand how
this is supposed to work. A new build of Android contains system.img
and userdata.img (among other files). The system.img file is read-
only, so replacing the user's existing copy shouldn't result in any
data loss. Not so with userdata.img; overwriting this file with a
newer version would destroy all of an end-users application data
(wouldn't it?). Could it be that userdata.img never contains any data
that needs to be updated during a FW upgrade, and so isn't
overwritten? Or is there some process that merges changes into /data?

Surely there is a procedure envisioned for upgrading FW for Android-
based devices without nuking users' address books, and other private
data. Unfortunately, Googling for this information yields only pages
containing specific hacker-level instructions (e.g. adb commands); I
can't find any mention of this topic online, or in the documentation.

Does anyone know how this is supposed to work, or where this is

Thanks very much in advance.



2. Geocoder.getFromLocationName() ignores bounding box

How can I convert a street address into a latitude + longitude?

I've tried to use Geocoder.getFromLocationName() with a bounding box,
but all results I get are outside of the box.  Is there a way to limit
the hits to a certain area on earth?
