Android Question Obfuscation

I have read a bit about code obfuscation and wanted to know the facts as I read somewhere that code obfuscation does not work on all of the code but just the key signing portion of the app. Then I read somewhere else that it does indeed obfuscates all of the code. Which is it? And speaking of protection, what is the best way to encrypt my SQLite database?
Thanks,
schemer

Obfuscation is described here: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/13773

It renames all the variables so it is harder to understand the program once it is decompiled.

SQLCipher is a good solution for encryption.
Thanks Erel,
I myself even name the variables where I know what they mean buy maybe not so clear for someone trying to hijack my code. :p But this is an added layer. I am glad it is available for our apps.
