How can I pass data to a single task activity after the first time it loads

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I have an Activity that is a single task so I guess on create only gets called once. I want to pass some parameters from another activity. using Intent, i am putting extras but when I read them in the single activities onResume, the data is not there. I need a way to pass data to a single task activity or restart it. edit To clarify. The problem is my activity uses Single Task as a launch mode in the manifest. I think this means oncreate only gets called once which is why i am trying to get the parameters in onResume. When I resume my single task activit, I am unable to get any params adde (HowTos)
