Android 4.0.4 Problem
created on Jul 15, 2012 12:27:47 PM
Users reporting problems with Android 4.0.4 in using option menues with my app.
On Android 4.0.3 it works.
Now my question. How can I reproduce this problem, if I do not have an Device with 4.0.4 on it ?
I am using eclipse and the android sdk with 'api level' 15 & 16 . 15 is -> 4.0.3 16 is -> 4.1 Is there no way to emulate a 4.0.4 in my Eclipse Environment ?

Are you getting any error reports in your Developer Console? I know just an error message is not much to go on, but unless you know someone with a 4.0.4 device I don't know how you would test it.

In the meanwhile I found the problem and I don't need a 4.0.4 version to test.
Users reported, that subactivities will be closed after opening, so they didn't see the called activities.
They had the special option checked : systemsettings->developer options->do not keep activities. This has to be unchecked in my case.
thanks a lot and regards

you can use an android vistualbox image to emulate 4.0.4. google does not supply a 4.0.4 emulator with the sdk, I can guess why, but that is for another thread .
you can get the image from http://www.buildroid.org/Download/android-x86-vm-20120130.iso.gz
I recommend using virtualbox as your image operator.
