What you're seeing shouldn't cause any problems, it's a hold-over from an earlier release of the SDK which defaulted the parameter name in the onCreate method to 'icicle' rather then 'savedInstanceState'.

Given that what's changed is just the parameter name (rather than the class -- Bundle -- being passed in) you can use either name, as long as you use it consistently if you access it within that method.

Hopefully that's one of the few inconsistencies you'll find, but if you do spot any other problems I'll be more than happy to try and help solve them.
