      Description

      This bug was mentioned before in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-5888

      The code in CDVCommandQueue line 197:
      objc_msgSend(obj, normalSelector, command);
      Causes a EXC_BAD_ACCESS on arm64.

      According to Apple's docs at https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/General/Conceptual/CocoaTouch64BitGuide/ConvertingYourAppto64-Bit/ConvertingYourAppto64-Bit.html :

      An exception to the casting rule described above is when you are calling the objc_msgSend function or any other similar functions in the Objective-C runtime that send messages. Although the prototype for the message functions has a variadic form, the method function that is called by the Objective-C runtime does not share the same prototype. The Objective-C runtime directly dispatches to the function that implements the method, so the calling conventions are mismatched, as described previously. Therefore you must cast the objc_msgSend function to a prototype that matches the method function being called.

      This bug can be solved by explicit casting, like so:

      ((void(*)(id, SEL, id))objc_msgSend)(obj, normalSelector, command);
