Heap corruption detected by tmalloc_large (Galaxy S3 ICS 4.0)


Hi everybody,

I developped an application with ionic. All works fine on my Android Nexus 6 with Lolipop. But, a friend has a problem with his Galaxy S3 on Android 4.0. Here’s the stack trace :

What is this problem ?

Thanx for your help :smile:


I’m not an expert but my best guess would be that the app using “com.mib_agence.mibclean” is writing into unallocated memory causing damage to the memory allocator and causing it to not work. Is “com.mib_agence.mibclean” your app or a plugin, or another app installed on the phone?


Hi !

Yes com.mib_agence.mibclean is my app. But I dont’t understand this error. I’m using just HTML CSS and JS. Do you have an explication for this error ?

Thanx for your help :smile:


This seems to be an actual issue with the Galaxy S3. If you look at his edit on the original question he mentions that it crashes when content goes off the screen, which I believe Ionic uses hardware accelerated css and javascript animations to do things so the elements are definitely going off screen.

He might be out of luck, I could not find any solution to the issue. The phone is almost 4 years old now, and on samsung terms that means it’s been outdated for 3.

It’s not an Ionic issue at all, it’s actually an android one. It happens in native apps too.
