1. SoundRecorder app breaks in MediaRecorder.prepare()


I used to record audio using SoundRecorder application, but in latest
pull it seems to be broken. The application starts but when the record
is actually going to happen, it fails. The error message (from logcat)

E/MediaRecorder(  869): prepare failed: -2147483648

I'd like to give more information about the error, but I don't see
more related messages in the log. I grep-ed the error message and
found that the "prepare" function is returning with an error. But I
couldn't find the actual implementation of the prepare function.

Any idea or suggestion?
