 I want to verify something..

I already did some app tests but I am coming to the conclusion that I
can nnto as non root replace the default dialer like one might replace
the HomeScreen.

is this assumption correct?

 You can replace the entire "dialtacts" activity.  You can't replace just one
tab in it.  This is regardless of whether you are running as root.

2. Error receiving broadcast Intent NullPointerException

I was working on creating a wifi service for my application. When I
ran into a strange error detailing "Error receiving broadcast
Intent ..." and stating that there was a NullPointerException. I was
finally able to track this issue down. What I discovered was a
broadcast intent action like WifiManager.WIFI_STATE_CHANGED_ACTION is
"sticky". Context.registerReceiver() documentation states that

"The system may broadcast Intents that are "sticky" -- these stay
around after the broadcast as finished, to be sent to any later
registrations. If your IntentFilter matches one of these sticky
Intents, that Intent will be returned by this function and sent to
your receiver as if it had just been broadcast."

When my broadcastReceiver received the initial sticky broadcast it
caused the NullPointerException error. Note I am working on OS1.6 -
api level 4 so BroadcastReceiver's isInitialStickyBroadcast() is not
available. I hope what I discovered for myself is helpful to others
with this error.
