Ionic and android 2.3 default apps

So I know android 2.3 isn’t supported (but it should work).
But with the addition of the ‘but 2.3 should work’ line I would suspect that at least the default apps would run and then I could hack my way from there.

But if you install the default tabs ionic starter app.

 ionic start myApp tabs

And add a android platform

ionic platform add ios

And then run the tabs app on a android 2.3 emulator

ionic emulate android

I immediatly get an error in my log like:
file:///android_asset/www/lib/ionic/js/ionic.bundle.js: Line 46718 : SyntaxError: Parse error
And the view stays an empty white.

Anybody know how to add least get the default apps to work on android 2.3 emulator?

We no longer support android 2.3 in any way, shape, or form :smile:

For reals…
A lot of the things Ionic does under the hood requires features not available in 2.3, hence the troubles you are having.
