    I tried this test on Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4.2.2 device with Titanium SDK 3.2.3 and I cannot reproduce this issue. Are you running into this issue on a specific device?
  2. David He 2014-05-07

    @Ritu Agrawal Yes, it happens on my Galaxy S2 device running on Android 4.1.2 Also test on Google Nexus 7 which is running on 4.4.x - working beautifully. So, it is a bug from Android SDK? Thanks

    Yes, it appears to be a device bug. You may want to try it on a later generation device (S4 or S5).

    So, what is the decision? If no fix for it, is there any workaround?

    It appears to be a device specific issue as it works fine on a later device. There is no known work around available at this point.
