Porting to Android - MonoGame, Textures and SpriteSheets

When you're porting your XNA game to Android using MonoGame, if your game is of any size and complexity, you may well come across the issue of textures showing up all black (or all white, or all transparent) after a tombstone/restore.

If you've got some textures you create with Texture2D.SetData or otherwise generate on-the-fly without using a ContentManager, then you may also find those are black after a tombstone/restore. This blog explains how to fix these black textures.
