Locus nearly unusable after upgrade to ICS

Not a Problem

After an upgrade to ICS (Xperia Active), loading of Locus freezes serveral times and it is nearly impossible to download a new map for offline because it freezes again and again with a very little progress.


It might be because of changes in ICS (moving SQL handling out of native layer http://developer.sonymobile.com/wp/20... )


But the result is I would strongly discourage anybody from upgrading to ICS right now.


Is there any solution here except for downgrading back to Gingerbread?


Thanks, m

.. to add at least some details: the problem is just when locus re-inicializing the maps on startup (that white window walking through all the offline maps at the start).


This does not happen every start.

Hi Myneur,


may I ask you for the crash log? It can help us for quick solve of the problem. How to create crash log you find here http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manu...


Thank you in advance

my way:


deinstall locus


rename the dir ../locus to öld_locus


reboot


install locus new


check this new version


move your maps,... from old_locus to your new installed version

Hi, after couple of days testing it seams to be rather a problem of just ICS - I can`t simulate tha same crashes to make a log. But another applications (Google Maps, Streetview) crashed in similar way.


If I encounter this behaviour of Locus agiain, I`ll put here a log, but for this time it seams these are problems of ICS not related to Locus.:/


Sorry for reporting too early...
