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 )


IONIC App not working on Android 4.4.2 & 4.2.2
Android ionic bug
Ionic Version

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.

Not working in jellybean
Lowest android version for Ionic2
Android ion-content is Getting Blank After Page Changed
Ionic 2 starter project went white screen, when running in android device
Problems running ionic 2 on Android (5.1.2
App not working properly in jelly bean and kitkat
Ionic v2 latest version is not working with Android 4.2.2
PhoneGap Build - APK file gives blank screen - tutorial
Minimum android version supported by ionicv2
App stays white on older phones
Problem testing the tab template on a real android

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:
