File-Transfer download/upload fails in Android 4.4 or older using TLS 1.2

      Description

      FileTransfer's download function fails when trying to download a file from a site using TLS 1.2. This works fine in Android 5 or higher, but it fails in Android 4.x.

      I searched a bit and I found that Android 4.4 should support TLS1.2 but it is disabled by default. I applied the solution proposed in this post and it worked for me:

      http://stackoverflow.com/a/33567745

      That is, I created the MySSLSocketFactory class in the FileTransfer project, and I used it in the trustAllHosts function (line 636 of FileTransfer.java):

      SSLSocketFactory newFactory = new MySSLSocketFactory(sc.getSocketFactory());
      

      I'm not sure if this can cause problems with other certificates, I don't know much about this. It would be nice if the Cordova team could take a look at this and check if it can be solved.

      This is the stacktrace:

      Error getting HTTP status code from connection.

      It can be tested with this code:

      var ft = new FileTransfer(),
          path = 'squirrel.jpg',
          uri = 'https://prototype.moodle.net/mobile/moodle32/webservice/pluginfile.php/314/mod_resource/content/3/squirrel.jpg?forcedownload=1&token=616455be9f363cc9631cab89cfcfa1cd';
      
      ft.download(uri, path, success, error, true);
      
      function success() {
          console.log('Success');
      }
      
      function error(data) {
          console.log('Error', data);
      }
