----------------------------------

Hi, [~cyberflohr] --

I don't know if I'm comfortable opening up the bridge unconditionally to content:// URLs --
it seems like a potential attack vector; like something that might put us in a similar situation
as previous vulnerability reports.

What if we did something like:

{code}
String appContentUrlPrefix = "content://" + getApplicationContext().getPackageName() + "/";
if (origin.startsWith("file:") || origin.startsWith(appContentUrlPrefix) || (origin.startsWith("http")
&& loadedUrl.startsWith(origin))) {
{code}

Then a content provider under the control of your own app (with URLs like {{content://com.example.yourapp/something}})
could be used, but an arbitrary content provider on the device wouldn't have access to Cordova
APIs.

Would that work for you?

> Device ready event is not fired if page is loaded via content:// protocol. 
> I assume it has something to do with a security check done within CordovaBridge.java
which triggers the following gap_init error message.
