Is it going to turn out to be some really daft and simple issue? I mean, if it works when you change the Language to US (it did for me on Google Goggles), perhaps it is something like the date format in a text string being sent during authentication? i.e. changing language updates the regional settings.

try to use wlan instead of 3g, this maybe helps..

I know that it is not a connection problem.. google just makes you think it is, when in fact its about to register your data.

I'm the developer of Andlytics and found a solution for my app. (Andlytics user Paulo told me about this)

I think the problem is related to the translation strings which Samsung changed from the default ones on the SGS2.

The original String which pops up on authentication requests is:

<string name="permission_request_notification_with_subtitle">Permission Requested\nfor account %s</string>
Samsung changed it to something without the '\n', that's why a IndexOutOfBounds error occurs (

final String titleAndSubtitle = mContext.getString(R.string.permission_request_notification_with_subtitle,;
final int index = titleAndSubtitle.indexOf('\n');
final String title = titleAndSubtitle.substring(0, index); <--IndexOutOfBounds
final String subtitle = titleAndSubtitle.substring(index + 1);
The solution for me was to use a different method on authentication requests:

public AccountManagerFuture<Bundle> getAuthToken (Account account, String authTokenType, Bundle options, Activity activity, AccountManagerCallback<Bundle> callback, Handler handler)
instead of what I was using before:

public AccountManagerFuture<Bundle> getAuthToken (Account account, String authTokenType, boolean notifyAuthFailure, AccountManagerCallback<Bundle> callback, Handler handler)

After reading about various I9100 users solving this by switching to English (US) I figured I'd try something similar. Since the only other language available on a Sprint Epic Touch 4G is Spanish I switched to Spanish, went back to Goggles and tried to save --> SUCCESS!

Now switch back to English and proceed to take stupid pictures to see just how much Google can recognize.
