I read this forum since a couple of months and I always find a solution to all my Intel XDK related problems, thanks to you guys. This time, though, it seems it has come the time I write here asking for your advice.
I came across the "infamous" "Parse Error" problem, and all the causes/solutions I found in the forum didn't help... I'm really stuck.
To make it short: I have an app made with Intel XDK available on both Google Play and App Store (so, compiled for Android and iOS). I compiled and published the last version of the app in July, then I did no changes until yesterday.
Yesterday I open Intel XDK, and it asks for update, so I update it (to build 2611). I open the project and migrate it to project version 2.0, then I change a couple of line of codes. Everything looks fine in the emulator (yeah, I know that doesn't mean anything) and during the Android build... but once I download the app on my device it just wouldn't open, giving me the "Parse error" issue.
I removed the new code - nothing changed.
I removed Intel XDK 2611 and re-installed version 2366 (thus, project version 1.2). I reopened the old version of the project and compiled it.
Now, since that exactly the code in production right now, with same project version too (not even a byte different!) I was supposing it to run but... nope. "Parse Error".
I hoped it was something wrong with the Intel compiler and waited 24h but the problem is still there... what can I do?
How can a code that was running perfectly just...stop running like this?
HEre is the short log:
Here you can download the detailed build log ( https://www.dropbox.com/s/p1e5hsclufot2bs/buildlog.txt?dl=0 ) and here the apk ( https://www.dropbox.com/s/siws8dccytxdocg/app.zip?dl=0 ;)
Thank you in advance for your help.
Fabio, in order to get some more diagnostic info regarding this problem, could you share a copy of your <project-name>.xdk_bak file that is stored in your project directory? You can share it via a private message.
I've upgraded the Intel XDK to the new version 3088 and I can't get valid apk. When signed project I get "App not installed" error, when I build not-signed project I get "Parse error There was a problem parsing the package". (I've tried to build new projects and old projects converted to CLI 5.4.1)
Olga -- only signed APKs can be installed on a device, even if you are only side-loading for testing.
What version of Android are you attempting to install onto? There is a signing issue in the build system that prevents good builds from installing on devices. See this post for details > https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-xdk/topic/622990
