ExceptionInInitializerError when AsyncTask is used inside a Timer

Hey people,

A quick one here, I was working on a late project and got this weird bug. Tested my android app on 4.2 working all fine but suddenly it crashed on everything below it. Here's the code cause the error

See the problem here is that according to Android Dev, the Async Task MUST run in the UI thread. But the Timer is having it's own seperate thread. So, with the help of Stackoverflow :D I managed a solution where the Timer contains a Handler which would be running in the UI thread. Modified code
