The project has resource folders using uppercase letters
I opened up a layout file using the Android designer. It presented me with the message:
The project has resource folders using uppercase letters. The Android SDK requires all resource folders to be lowercase, otherwise the designer may no find the resources in those folders. The invalid folders are: Layout, Values.
I've attached a screenshot of the error. I would not expect this warning to occur given that Xamarin.Android created this project with the "invalid" filenames and Xamarin.Android does seem to be able to build APK's that have upper case folder names.
As an aside, aapt only supports lower case resource names & folders. Should not Xamarin.Android follow the same convention?
The current android project templates are already using lowercase names in the resources dir. It is normal to get this warning when opening project that were created with old versions on XS.
