TabHost.TabSpec crashing application

I ended up delting the sound activity, and all calls associated with it and app worked.

When trying to add the tabSpec my application force closes. I had a running build yesterday but didnt save it and when i edited it my spec wasnt adding right. I have researched questions that were basically the same but those answers didnt help. Here is my code

ControlActivity

package com.control.driswave;


import android.app.TabActivity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.content.res.Resources;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.TabHost;
import android.widget.Toast;

import com.control.driswave.R;
import com.stericson.RootTools.RootTools;

public class ControlActivity extends TabActivity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.main);

    if (RootTools.isAccessGiven()) {
        Toast root = Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), 
                "Root Granted", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);
        root.show();
    } else {
        Toast noRoot = Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), 
                "Root Access Needed To Continue", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
        noRoot.show();
        finish();
    }

    Resources res = getResources(); // used to get res drawings (i.e. display files)
    TabHost tabHost = getTabHost(); // used to create TabHost located in main.xml
    TabHost.TabSpec spec; //TabHost specifications which are the same in each view
    Intent intent; //intent for each tab. *RESEARCH INTENT*


    // New Class Added Caused FC. Was working. Spec no longer working again.

     //____Display
    intent = new Intent().setClass(this, DisplayActivity.class);

    spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("display").setIndicator("Display",
            res.getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_tab_display))
            .setContent(intent); // create picture to be used for tab
    tabHost.addTab(spec);

    //____Power
    intent = new Intent().setClass(this, PowerActivity.class);

    spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("power").setIndicator("Power", 
            res.getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_tab_display))
            .setContent(intent);
    tabHost.addTab(spec);

    //____Sound
    intent = new Intent().setClass(this, SoundActivity.class);

    spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("sound").setIndicator("Sound",
            res.getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_tab_display))
            .setContent(intent);
    tabHost.addTab(spec);

    tabHost.setCurrentTab(2);

DisplayActivity

package com.control.driswave;

import java.io.File;

import com.stericson.RootTools.RootTools;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.provider.Settings;
import android.widget.CheckBox;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class DisplayActivity extends Activity {
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.display);


    //_____Disable Boot Animation_____//
    CheckBox dba = (CheckBox) findViewById(R.id.DBA);
    if (dba.isChecked()) {
        RootTools.remount("/system/", "rw");
        File ba = new File("/System/Media/bootanimation.zip");
        ba.renameTo(new File("/System/Media/bootanimation.zip.bak"));
        Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Boot Animation Disabled", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);

    }

    //_____Disable Window Animations_____//
    CheckBox dwa = (CheckBox) findViewById(R.id.DWA);
    if (dwa.isChecked()) {
        Settings.System.putInt(getContentResolver(), Settings.System.WINDOW_ANIMATION_SCALE, 0);
    } else {
        Settings.System.putInt(getContentResolver(), Settings.System.WINDOW_ANIMATION_SCALE, 1);

    }

}

}
