Can't reproduce - I only tested Android (a Nexus 5 running Android 4.4.4) and it ran just fine. What device are you testing on and what export options did you choose?

It would also be useful if you could narrow it down to a particular release number that broke it. We made a lot of changes between r168 and r179.

OK, I've made a tweak for the next beta that reverts a small change made in r172 that I think may have broken old Android browsers. Let me know how it goes when r180 is out.

@flemmig - the only other change I can see in r172 relating to PhoneGap is we removed the 'device' plugin, because it appeared to be unused... but I guess maybe those older devices need it. Could you try exporting as PhoneGap, then edit config.xml and insert this just before the closing </widget> tag:

<gap:plugin name="org.apache.cordova.device" />

Then zip and build as usual on PhoneGap Build... does that fix it?

How about if you add <gap:plugin name="org.apache.cordova.media" /> as well?

If that doesn't work I'm all out of ideas... that's about all the changes we made between r171 and r172...
