  • Working fine for me just comment out the in app browser plugin in the config as its not compatible and probably isnt required.

  • This issue still persists, is there any news on a fix for it?

    Although a workaround has been posted above, it would be much better to get an official fix for the problem.

  • It is rather a pain to have to manually fix the config file. Hoping the next beta pushes a quick fix for this.

  • Cordova recently moved all its plugins to npm. You need to add source="npm" to the gap:plugin tag for it to find the right version. The next beta has been updated to do this automatically which fixes the Android build problem.
