  • My Ionic cordova project, cordova version is 8.1.2 (cordova-lib@8.1.1)
  • ionic version is 6.12.3
  • Project android platform version is android 9.0.0

Unable to run cordova app on Android 11 but it is working well on Android 10.

What is expected to happen?

Android .apk should work on all versions of android

What does actually happen?

Application is launched in android 11 but stuck in splashscreen. When changed targetsdkversion from 30 to 29 application is working properly.

Im stuck with this. Need help.

I have debugged by inspecting there was not error, also i have debugged using android studio. No luck there too. Issues is not with the plugins.

Am i missing something.


Hi, did you resolve this issue? I’m having exactly the same problem.


Im interested too, did you manage to solve the problem ?

I’m getting there.

So far updated the SQLite plugin to version 6 which in my case was causing the issue. Then to make it work update the android platform to the latest.
ionic Cordova platform add android@latest

The original error is gone, behaving a new one related to the google services. I Will put a solution here when will sort this out.

Removing SQLLite worked for me (didn’t need to upgrade Cordova or add android@latest)

@notacv @Fredericks1 Sorry for late reply there was an issue on cordova-sqlite-storage plugin. Upgrading SQLite plugin to version 6 fixed issue for me.
