    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Critical
    • Resolution: Not A Problem
    • Affects Version/s: 1.4.0, 1.7.0

      Motorola Xoom ICS 4.0.4.
      PhoneGap 1.7.0rc1 example application.


      I have recently started to see SocketExceptions from CallbackServer.run() on my Motorola Xoom. I don't know exactly when it started, but it would appear to line up with the update of the Xoom to ICS 4.0.4 that occurred a couple of weeks (or so) ago. I don't recall seeing it on the previous version of ICS (4.0.3?).

      The exception information from LogCat follows:

      This may be related to another issue that I have noticed with ICS 4.0.4 which is that it drops the WIFI connection a lot. It drops it WAY more frequently than the previous version did even with "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" set to "Always".

      My app is based on PhoneGap v1.4.0. I see this exception with my app on the Xoom. I have not seen it on my Samsung Galaxy S with 2.3.3 on it.

      The LogCat information above is from the 1.7.0rc1. For this test I simply created a new Android application in Eclipse using the Android example code as is. The exception happens even without interacting with the example app. Just leave it sit there and eventually... boom.
