I am having a number of issues around saving app state to a Bundle via onSaveInstanceState().

For now, I need to address the issue of my app crashing when it restored after being closed by Android.

When an Activity/Fragment (in background) is being force closed by Android to regain resources, is there a way I can say "don't try and restore state when resume, just create everything anew"?

For activity if you want to create it from scratch then just override onSaveInstanceState and call super.onSaveinstanceState passing a null al the Bundle.

For Fragment just set setRetainInstanceState to false in onActivityCreated method of the Fragment.
