How to rotate Bitmap without creating a new one?

I'm using this to get rotated Bitmap from existed one :

private Bitmap getRotatedBitmap(Bitmap bitmap, int angle) {
        int w = bitmap.getWidth();
        int h = bitmap.getHeight();
        Matrix mtx = new Matrix();
        return Bitmap.createBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, w, h, mtx, true);

Is it possible to do it without creating new bitmap?

I was trying to redraw the same mutable image with Canvas:

Bitmap targetBitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(targetWidth, targetHeight, config);
Canvas canvas = new Canvas(targetBitmap);
Matrix matrix = new Matrix();
canvas.drawBitmap(targetBitmap, matrix, new Paint());

but this approach had just resulted in corrupted bitmap. So is there any possibilities to achieve it?
