1. SQLiteException..database is locked

Basically I have a list page which I get from the network and cache it in
the local DB. and on list item click the details of the list is displayed

In the list page i have the refresh button which gets the latest state of
the list.I run a thread to update the list.

When the thread is running and I click on the list item,I again open the DB
to get the details of the list item.

The prob occurs when I click on the refresh button and if I immediately
click(that is when the DB operations are running) on the list item,then a
"database is locked" excpetion occurs,I have no idea as to how to solve this

2. Basic Device Security question

I have just been asked by a colleague to answer some security
questions on Android and I wonder if I can get some quick help?

Here they are, apologies if these are too basic and covered
elsewhere...I haven't had a thorough look but couldn't see answers...

1. Does Android support full device encryption and its complementary
function full disk erasure?  If not, do people feel this is feasible
on a bespoke build? Would it have too great a performance impact on
the device?

2. Can crypto keys be stored securely on the device (at rest) in a
secure store? Can the keys to the store be introduced from an external
interface during boot time? Smartcard or MicroSD, etc

3. When the OS is running can the keys be protected or are they left
clear in working memory?

4. If I wish to work via a browser to minimise data held on the
device, can the working memory of the browser be securely encrypted
(and again are the keys capable of being secured)?

5. Can I intercept the boot sequence so that during the hard reset
process I may intercept the device and perform a secure erasure before
loading the OS at its default state?

6. I am making an assumption that the UI is completely
configurable...I can remove any applications that may be used to load
or remove threats to the device?

I am sure that if I want to lookup encryption algorithms available
that these are all defined somewhere on this site...

I know that these are quite simple questions but understanding a
little of these will allow me to discuss the merits of Android devices
over the iPhone, Win Mobile, etc.

Kind Regards,
