I have managed to solve the issue by using beta 4 (Antimony Antelope) from code.ionicframework.com. But, just to let everyone know that scrolling locks in my app just after ‘opening and closing the modal’. I cant share my full app code atm and I have more than one modal in my app and this behaviour is not happening with other modals.
But, something, obviously has changed after beta 4 which is breaking the scroll. (I am also using jQuery is this helps.)
After hitting the search button (magnifying glass) my search modal is brought up.
and after closing this modal, the scrolling seems to lock out.
Now, I have other modals in my app where this doesn’t occur.
