This was possible in beta-13 but doesnt seem to work in the latest version…
Say I go from state ‘menu.tabs.dashboard’ to ‘menu.tabs.resources’. This would display a navigation back button to return to ‘menu.tabs.dashboard’.
Then say I go from ‘menu.tabs.dashboard’ to ‘menu.tabs.resources’ to ‘feedback’ which is a state with no side-menu or tabs. With the old $ionicNavBarDelegate.back() it would take me back to ‘menu.tabs.resources’ which then had the back button in the nav bar to ‘menu.tabs.dashboard’.
However with $ionicHistory.goBack() it takes me back to ‘menu.tabs.resources’ but this state doesn’t have the back button to ‘menu.tabs.dashboard’, like it is started the view stack from the beginning.
