That's probably an apktool bug. Which apktool version are you using? Is it the latest?
Comment 2 Grigory (Playtika) 2015-06-17 23:27:20 UTC
U're absolutely right. 1.5.2 doesn't work with Xamarin build, but perfectly worked with our native Android app. That lead me to wrong conclusion.

Marking bug as invalid.

ApkTool 2.0 works like a charm.
