Robolectric does not support loading resources from an Android Library project such as ActionBarSherlock of FlyInMenu, so this patch allows you to specify a library project to load resources in tests.
// In I added the following method:
public void loadLibraryProjectResources(File libraryProjectRoot) throws Exception {
File systemResourceDir = getSystemResourceDir(getPathToAndroidResources());
File localValueResourceDir = getValueResourceDir(libraryProjectRoot);
File systemValueResourceDir = getValueResourceDir(systemResourceDir);
loadStringResources(localValueResourceDir, systemValueResourceDir);
loadPluralsResources(localValueResourceDir, systemValueResourceDir);
loadValueResources(localValueResourceDir, systemValueResourceDir);
