Description Jens 2013-10-18 16:21:40 UTC
Android doesn't like the APK files I create with "Publish Android Application" under Xamarin Studio for Mac.

when I install the APK I get the following messages:

10-18 21:46:58.061: E/PackageParser(2224): Package de.appnotize.letmetalk has no certificates at entry res/animator/fragment_left_slide_in.xml; ignoring!
10-18 21:46:58.151: D/InstallAppProgress(15200): Installation error code: -103

the installation gets canceled and the user can not install the app at all :-(

For me it looks like the "Publish Android Application" forgets to sign some files...
The Android Play Store accepts the file, so the store thinks the file is signed correctly.

The installation failed on a Nexus S, a galaxy Tab 10.1 and an Acer Iconia B1. There are reports that it works on a Nexus4, but I am not sure about it.

I will add the APK file, even if I am not sure if it helps. I have no idea what to do now :(

As per IRC discussion, the Build generated from #2 runs without generating the warning/error messages.

It was built with:

   xbuild /p:Configuration=Release /t:SignAndroidPackage Project.csproj

See also: http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/android/advanced_topics/build_process#2.12.signing

Is this just a one-off error? Or is this a bug in XS' "Publish Android Application" support?
