Saving a base64 encoded image

My application receives images that are base64 encoded and wrapped in XML. While I have no problem choosing and sending a picture, the decoded picture will not render and is always larger than the original. This seems to be because Titanium re-encodes the data into some other format and does not recognize a binary string decoded from base64. Has anyone found a way around this?

A quick summary of methods I have tried (only on droid for now):

  1. Just writing the decoded string
  2. Using JSON to stringify and parse around the base 64
  3. Converting the string to an object and saving the file
  4. Attempting to create a tiblob for the string prior to saving
