>                 Key: CB-9428
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 4.1.0
>            Reporter: jcesarmobile
>            Assignee: Steve Gill
>            Priority: Critical
> When you update an existing android app to cordova android 4.1.0, the minSdk on the project
will not change but the minSdk on the cordovaLib will increase to 14, so the app won't build/run
if the app minSdk was lower than 14
> 1. Create a cordova project (cordova create androidTest)
> 2. Go to cordova project (cd androidTest)
> 3. Add android platform (cordova platform add android)
> 4. Run the app (cordova run android). It will work
> 5. Update the project to use the latest cordova android (cordova platform update android@4.1.0)
> 6. Run the app again (cordova run android). It will fail with this error "Execution failed
for task ':processDebugManifest'.
> > Manifest merger failed : uses-sdk:minSdkVersion 10 cannot be smaller than version
14 declared in library /Users/dgc/Documents/proyectos/test/cordovatests/androidTest/platforms/android/build/intermediates/exploded-aar/android/CordovaLib/unspecified/debug/AndroidManifest.xml
>   	Suggestion: use tools:overrideLibrary="org.apache.cordova" to force usage"
> Expected result:
> cordova platform update android@4.1.0 should increase the minSdkVersion to 14 if it was
lower than 14, or the upgrade doc should mention that the android-minSdkVersion preference
should be set to 14 or greater
