             Summary: [SplashScreen] AutoHideSplashScreen not respected, Screen Flicker
                 Key: CB-12099
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin SplashScreen
    Affects Versions: 4.0.0
            Reporter: Matt Thompson
            Priority: Minor

I'm using Cordova (v6.4.0) and the Splashscreen plugin (v4.0.0) (

on Android devices there is a white flash between the splash screen images and my app loading.

In my Cordova config.xml file, I have the following lines for the splash screen:

<preference name="SplashScreenDelay" value="2000" />
<preference name="ShowSplashScreenSpinner" value="false" />

I tried disabling the splash screen image from automatically hiding and increasing the delay
before the splash screen hides by adding the additional following lines to config.xml:

<preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="false" />
<preference name="SplashScreenDelay" value="10000" />

Because auto hide is false and the delay is 10 seconds, I should see the static loading image
for a full 10 seconds, but on both iOS and Android it only displays for a second or two. I'm
guessing that is the root of the problem.

Once auto hide can be disabled, I hoped to manually trigger hiding the splash screen within
my app's main init function using:
