Android Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 1, fault addr 0x0 in tid 29092

I'm try to play a loading animation on my loading screen, and I read somewhere that android doesn't support gifs so either you have to break in into frames and then play it or we can use the Movie class.

Heres the leading activity -

package com.myapp.mehul.login.activity;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AlertDialog;
import android.util.Log;

import com.myapp.mehul.login.MYGIFView;
import com.myapp.mehul.login.MainActivity;
import com.myapp.mehul.login.R;
import com.myapp.mehul.login.app.Constants;

import org.json.JSONException;
import org.json.JSONObject;

import java.net.URISyntaxException;

import io.socket.client.IO;
import io.socket.client.Socket;
import io.socket.emitter.Emitter;

* Created by mehul on 2/6/16.
public class LoadingScreen extends Activity {

/** Duration of wait **/
private final int SPLASH_DISPLAY_LENGTH = 1000;

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
private Socket mSocket;
String you;
String opponentId;
String username;

try {
mSocket = IO.socket(Constants.CHAT_SERVER_URL);
} catch (URISyntaxException e) {

throw new RuntimeException(e);
public void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
setContentView(new MYGIFView(getApplicationContext()));
//initialise the socket
//call add user
mSocket.emit("add user");
//start a listener for opponent
mSocket.on("opponent", onOpponent);
//initialise the username
username = getIntent().getExtras().getString("username");

private Emitter.Listener onOpponent = new Emitter.Listener(){
public void call(final Object... args){
LoadingScreen.this.runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
public void run() {
JSONObject data = (JSONObject) args[0];

try {
you = data.getString("you");
opponentId = data.getString("opponent");
Log.d("LoadingScreen", data.toString());

//setResult(RESULT_OK, i);

} catch (JSONException e) {
Intent i = new Intent(LoadingScreen.this, MainActivity.class);
i.putExtra("opponentId", opponentId);
i.putExtra("you", you);
i.putExtra("username", username);
Log.d("goToChat", username);

public void onBackPressed(){

AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(LoadingScreen.this);
builder.setMessage("I knew you didn't have BALLS.").setCancelable(
false).setPositiveButton("I am a LOSER",
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
//send the logout information to the server
JSONObject discon = new JSONObject();
try {
discon.put("opponent", opponentId);
discon.put("you", you);
} catch (JSONException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
mSocket.emit("discon", discon);

//finish the current activity.
Intent intent = new Intent(LoadingScreen.this, MainMenu.class);

}).setNegativeButton("I'll fkin face it",
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {

AlertDialog alert = builder.create();


In the above code I've set content view by passing it an instance of MYGIFView.class -

Heres MYGIFView.class

package com.myapp.mehul.login;

import android.content.Context;
import android.graphics.Canvas;
import android.graphics.Color;
import android.graphics.Movie;
import android.view.View;

import java.io.InputStream;

* Created by mehul on 2/7/16.
public class MYGIFView extends View{
Movie movie,movie1;

InputStream is=null,is1=null;

long moviestart;
public MYGIFView(Context context) {

is=context.getResources().openRawResource(+ R.drawable.loading);


protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {

long now=android.os.SystemClock.uptimeMillis();
if (moviestart == 0) { // first time
moviestart = now;

int relTime = (int)((now - moviestart) % movie.duration()) ;

The loading activity IS creating an instance of MYGIFView.class and it logs the data but then it gives fatal signal 11. I tried to search but I didn't get any answer.

Answer Source

I received a batch for this question which means its being viewed a lot, so I'll answer this question -

What I figured out was the line below was throwing the error -


Now the problem is that this error can be caused by lots of reasons, it never a specific reason.. the reason mine wasn't working out was because my device didn't work well with hardware acceleration, so I just had to disable it in the manifest application, like this -


Now its possible that the reason might not be the same....but the core reason is the same, its memory related, and most chances are its a bug in the firmware of the device or emulator you are testing upon.
