IONIC App crash only on Android Versions with API17 (4.2) or less


The app in question do various http request to connect with the backend. In this sections where it connect to the backend , ONLY on Androids with version less than 4.3 the app crash and close.

This happens on devices and VMs.

Is there any known issue between the current Ionic vs Android versions 4.2, 4.1 - - - - .
App works wonderfully on anything 4.3+. There must be something relevant that changed between 4.2 and 4.3 that causes this crash on http.get request.

As always any comment that may throw some light is appreciated. Thanks community.

Update: Adding crosswalk solve the issue.
