Comment 1 Peter Collins 2013-09-26 14:26:20 UTC
The issue here is that the sample in question is using OpenGL ES 2.0 APIs, and the base android emulators do not support GLES 2.0. This sample should behave as expected on an x86 emulator. I was unable to reproduce this on my Genymotion 4.2.2 emulator.

As per comment 1 this issue is invalid.

Hence closing this issue.
