the application google services framework force close

Last night, after flashing a new ROM, villandroid, I cannot set my Google account to be use in my phone.

the message "the application google services framework" keep pop up with force close button.

so, I browse the internet to seek what's causing it and how to fix this issue.
there's a search result explaining that the calendar application is the culprit. and he suggest to clear the data of calendar application.

that suggestion is not comply with my HTC Hero. the problem persist.

so, I'm thinking that any application that require to login to google is the culprit. then, I uninstall all application which require logon in to Google.

then I clear data from "google services framework".
setting > aplication > manage application then seek for Google framework. clear the day and stop the application.
voila! it works.

my first paid application

never in my gadget life that i bought an application.
usually i've satisfied with it's free version. and later if i want to go further, i'll lookup for any 'key' of that application.

so it reach the moment when i want to do the right thing. i fell on love with PicSay. it's free version is more than enough for my android.

the problem is in indonesia's network there's no paid application on the android market.

after using Market Enabler application, i forge my market as other countries' market. and then i found out PicSay Pro is not expensive, which is still fit with my expenses.

so i buy it.
buying an application in android market requiring you to have a credit card - which i already have.
the next step is set/create your Google Checkout account - that same Google account that you use on your android phone.

after that, just go to the market. search for PicSay Pro and follow the flow and in the end it'll deduct your credit card as much the price of PicsSay Pro.

Hero custom ROM

After my Hero root-ed, I have the capability to change the current or original ROM with any custom ROM for Hero.

My first try of custom ROM is using Villain beta 4, it is amazing that a 2.1 ROM actually running on my Hero, which is prevously 1.5 ROM.

Since there are sometimes some application refused to run on 1.5 ROM, e.g: google buzz, new google map, etc.

along with this new joy, comes a new frustation. my Hero are becoming slow each day, especially when it the first time connect to internet. and sometimes the HTC Sense is need to be force close.

Luckily, Android has this system that prevent one collapse application to halt the phone. although i experiencing already 4 times hang :(

HTC Mail

For Android 1.5, normally it come with HTC Mail e-mail client. you can utilize this application to fetch your e-mail using POP3 or IMAP4 or Outlook Exchange.

I use HTC Mail for several mail which is hosted on gmail domain hosted. so it can have label as it's folder.

too bad, this HTC Mail only able to syncronize the inbox folder/label of those google mail hosted domain. for folders beside inbox, you need to trigger the mail to be fetch using Refresh menu.

there are other things I experienced with this HTC Mail, which it crashed more than i expected.
but alas, even though the application crash, the phone it self still steady.
