Anyone with a working Android 4.3 app for Ionic2

Does anyone have an example, no matter how simple, that works on Android 4.3?
I have tried the Conference app, starters [Turorial, Sidemenu, Tabs, Blank] all with no luck.
I always get the WSOD.
I have tried different Android version targets, rebooted, reinstalled, updated, prayed and… well, it only goes downhill from there.
All attempts, by the way, work on other Androids eg: 5.1 and in browser. Not a hiccup since Beta 6 or maybe even 5.

My Android SDK is 23.1 ( I also have 25.1.3 installed )


IonicV2 supports android 4.4 and up.
The older browser on pre-4.4 devices do not have the features needed for ionic2 and angular 2 to work.

Though this can be fixed with crosswalk.

I guess you mean Ionic2 does not support lower than 4.4?
Ionic 1 worked fine on 4.3, in my experience.

I suppose this is also a final decision on Ionic’s part as well.
Too bad but OK, at least now I can stop beating my head.

Yes, updated my post. Ionic V2 supports 4.4 and up.

Hello I’m facing the same issue as well, The Toolbar alignment breaks up in android 4.4 and below. When I first installed the app on Android 4.4.2 I got a blank screen. It works perfectly on Android 5.0 and above. What could be the issue for this? Is this issue resolved in beta 25?

@chandroiud I would recommend you to try with Crosswalk, check the linked topic for details:

Thanks I will look into crosswalk and try build an app for 4.4 version

For me, crosswalk generate app size is too big, so i find a better solution is “x5 engine” if u your app is target China.
And I build a cordova plugin if u want:

Hello All there at IONIC Forum,
