Inside my PhoneGap Android application, I am using jQuery 1.7.1 and jQuery Mobile 1.1 RC1. According to the jQuery 1.7.2 release notes, 1.7.2 should be used with Mobile 1.1. So, I changed my app to use 1.7.2. After I did this, I got the following error inside the console log and my PhoneGap app hung.
This is an incompatibility between the two rc1 is only meant for 1.7.1 This is known to the JQM team which never claimed it was compatible with 1.7.2 since 1.7.2 was not yet released when 1.1rc1 came out.
