I rebuilt an apk with LC 9.0 today and it runs fine on my Pixel (OS 8.1) but on my Samsung S5 (OS 6.0.1) it launches to a black screen and immediately crashes. An answer dialog in preOpenCard never runs, so I don't think the app even fully loads. The same app built a couple of months ago with LC 9.0dp11 runs fine on the Samsung.

I thought it might be the change I made to the target version in the manifest, but the problem still exists when I put the default manifest back in. The minimum app version is set to KitKat (4.4) which should be fine.

I'm just checking to see if anyone else has had trouble with LC 9.0 on older phones.
