Date Thu, 16 Mar 2017 15:44:58 GMT
Github user patrickbussmann commented on the issue:
    You can add this line to your `config.xml`.
        <hook type="before_compile" src="hooks/before_compile/change_required_features_to_optional.js"
    With this content.
      #!/usr/bin/env node
      module.exports = function (context) {
          Q = context.requireCordovaModule('q'),
          deferral = new Q.defer(),
          fs = context.requireCordovaModule('fs'),
          path = context.requireCordovaModule('path'),
          platformRoot = path.join(context.opts.projectRoot, 'platforms/android'),
          manifestFile = path.join(platformRoot, 'AndroidManifest.xml')
        if (fs.existsSync(manifestFile)) {
          fs.readFile(manifestFile, 'utf8', function (err, data) {
            if (err) {
              throw new Error('Unable to find AndroidManifest.xml: ' + err);
            fs.writeFile(manifestFile, (function (str) {
              str = str.replace(/android:required="true"/ig, 'android:required="false"');
              str = str.replace(/<uses-feature android:name="([^"]+)" ?\/>/ig, '<uses-feature
android:name="$1" android:required="false" />');
              return str;
            })(data), 'utf8', function (err) {
              if (err) throw new Error('Unable to write into AndroidManifest.xml: ' + err);
        } else {
        return deferral.promise;
    Then it will work fine and you will have no more dependencies :+1: 
    But yes your pull request should be merged as soon as possible :+1:
