Step to reproduce:
1. Open AndroidListView sample from 'mobile-samples-master-> TablesLists-> AndroidListView' in XS
2. Set its Target framework to 'Android 3.1' or above
3. Set Minimum Android version: Android 2.2
4. Build the application

Actual result:
Application gives build error: "Error: Tool exited with code: 1. Output: obj/Debug/android/AndroidManifest.xml:19: error: Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'theme' with value '@style/CustomFastScroll').(AndroidListView)". However, with target framework Android 2.3 and Android 2.2, application build successfully.

The issue here is that in order to use the theme required when building on API11+, you must uncomment it in the Resource/Values/Styles.xml file[1].

That being said, this behavior should be handled better. I'll add a fix for this shortly.
