Ionic 7-Capacitor 5, Cordova is not available, even running in real device

I am facing a strange problem here. My ionic 7 app using capacitor is not running even in real device.

All my plugin seem not working, i tried removing all plugin and install them again, removing the android platform and adding it again, and still not working.

I am always getting “Native: tried calling NativeStorage.getItem, but Cordova is not available. Make sure to include cordova.js or run in a device/simulator”

the problem is that i am running the app in a real android device connected via usb cable.

This is a simple app with only three plugins, NativeStorage, SQLlite and SQLLite porter, so to reproduce the error, you can create a simple ionic projet with a simple call to the nativeStorage remove method like this:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { Platform, ToastController, NavController  } from '@ionic/angular';
import { DbService } from './services/db.service';
import { Router } from '@angular/router';
import { SQLitePorter } from '@awesome-cordova-plugins/sqlite-porter/ngx';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';

import { SQLite, SQLiteObject } from '@awesome-cordova-plugins/sqlite/ngx';

import {TranslateDirective} from '@ngx-translate/core';
import { Globalization } from '@awesome-cordova-plugins/globalization/ngx';
import {TranslateService} from '@ngx-translate/core';
import { NativeStorage } from '@awesome-cordova-plugins/native-storage/ngx';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: 'app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['app.component.scss'],
export class AppComponent {
    public selectedIndex = 0;
    public appPages = [
          title: 'SETTINGS',
          url: '/settings',
          icon: 'settings'
          title: 'ABOUT',
          url: '/about',
          icon: 'briefcase'
        public db: DbService,
        public platform: Platform,
        public globalization: Globalization,
        public router: Router,
        public sqlPorter: SQLitePorter,
        public httpClient: HttpClient,
        public nativeStorage: NativeStorage,
  ) {
      platform.ready().then(() => {
      // Okay, so the platform is ready and our plugins are available.
      // Here you can do any higher level native things you might need.

Here is my ionic info command output

Any help will be appreciate

I created more than 5 new fresh simple projets to start from scratch, and still facing the same problem.

If anybody already faced the same problem, i will appreciate a helpful hand

Hi everybody! So nobody encountered such a problem. I am spending more time on this error that on my real project. I thought Ionic and Capacitor community are huge !
