Xamarin.Forms.AndroidActivity.SetPage in android goes to a blank black screen if it occurs after async. Several people have been using various bad workarounds to get around this.

I personally resolved mine by lowering the number of images loaded on the next page. I imagine different people had different issues.

Actually it's still an issue. I just had the fix in still when I tested it. I have verified that it is nothing on my end.
Comment 3 Shane 2014-12-26 02:05:16 UTC
This is fixed with the new way of setting pages in 1.3.0. Closing it.
