Description
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HOTFIX CANNOT BE DOWNLOADED BY THIS REGISTERED USER.  I THINK IT IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR BETA PROGRAM MEMBERS. WITHOUT IT, MULTI-PLATFORM DEVELOPMENT IS NOT FUNCTIONING. ANDROID APP WILL NOT RUN.

This hot fix addresses an issue with FireMonkey applications on devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop). The issue prevented array data from being properly exchanged between native code and the Android Java API. The most noticeable symptom of this issue was that images stored on FireMonkey forms would not be displayed on devices running Android 5 and could cause applications to terminate unexpectedly.
This zip contains all the contents of the lib\android folder.

Perform the following steps:

Rename C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\lib\android to C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\lib\android.bak
Extract lollipop_update_010715.zip to C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0
This is a beta hotfix, however, you are free to discuss this on the forums. You can also send issues to radbeta at embarcadero dot com, but please allow time for response from that address.

Updated on Jan 16, 2015 to include source and headers.

Available to registered users of RAD Studio XE7, Delphi XE7 and C++Builder XE7 (except non-mobile editions) and Embarcadero All-Access XE
Steps to Reproduce:
http://cc.embarcadero.com/item/30110, click on 'Download'.

This problem means I cannot run the app without MAJOR rework.  I cannot invest the time to be constantly trying to find workarounds on the web for basic functionality that is promised but not delivered.
