Yes, the "canary" workaround does work. I just tested it, you have no idea how excited I am now. BIG hurdle cleared, lol. There is one tiny issue though......
On the first build attempt the "Gold/Canary" radio buttons did not show up. I actually had to back out of the build and reload it in order for those choices to show up.
Back to Matt.... When you build your app for Crosswalk, at the bottom of the "Permissions" screen, where you select all the permissions for your app, there should be radio buttons for "Gold" or "Canary" versions of the build. You will need to select "Canary"
In C2, you will need to add the "Browser Object" and
"On Start of Layout --> Lock Orientation "(w/e one you need)"
Then compile your project for "android"
BUT keep in mind the paragraph i wrote to IntelRobert, if you don't see "Gold/Canary" back out of your build and "rebuild" it.
