Android live wallpaper - fix force close

This will be a very simple project that requires no design work whatsoever. All the OpenGL codes are done. All I need is someone to fix the force close issue.

Basically, I have uploaded 2 eclipse project files. 'Base Code 4' can work on all phone models.

However, 'Base Code 5' which has settings added can't work on several phones. Base Code 5 can work on Galaxy S2 and Nexus S. It doesn't work on Droid X and possibly Infuse 4g, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy S (they use the same powervr graphics chip). I don't have a phone that doesn't run the live wallpaper properly so I can't get the logcat or figure out what's wrong with it. I only have emails from customers saying it force closes.

So if you do have a Droid X or similar phone models that use the same powerVR graphics chip to test this app; this should be a very simple task.

Here is the crash report. Its for a live wallpaper app that uses the exact same codes as the attached "Base Code 5". This version of the app is now unpublished from the market due to the number of force closes report.

Since the feedback has been more than adequate (all the solutions are different but they all work); I've decided to add simple additional work. So if anyone is familiar with these additional tasks feel free to increase your bid.

Additional task:

1) import messaging service - the title might be misleading; but basically all I need is to increase the amount of cubes ( see codes) when the number of inbox text messages increases. For example, if the user gets 1 unread text, 1 cube appears. If the user gets 3 unread texts, 3 cubes appear.

2) add date - use the same system as the clock java class attached. should be very easy if you refer to the recent attached file. images will be provided
