android – Failed to execute aapt with cordova

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am working on a cordova project that has been working fine for a while, and suddenly I started to get a very strange error whenever the build reaches “:app:processArm64DebugResources” when builing with the command “cordova run android –device”.

I have tried removing and adding platforms, running the clean command, updating plugins and more. This error only affects one of my Cordova projects though, when I try to build other projects there is no error.

Here is the output:

How to&Answers:

Add this plugin to the project and it will fix everything

cordova plugin add cordova-android-support-gradle-release --fetch 

This has something to do with an update Google did to Android 28 rc that adds two new fields. Thank the gods someone shared a plugin to the world to fix it.

Answer:

For those who facing this issue after 17/06/2019. After spending number of hours on this issue finally found the solution. This build failure is due to a Major version release of the Google Play Services and Firebase on 17/06/2019

ionic cordova platform rm android ionic cordova platform add [email protected] ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-androidx ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-androidx-adapter 

Note: This will resolve your issue

Note: If you are using cordova-plugin-firebase and encountering errors, you can use this plugin which is published as cordova-plugin-firebasex and is fixed to resolve issues caused by the new Firebase SDK:

rm -Rf platforms/android cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-firebase rm -Rf plugins/ node_modules/ npm install cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebasex cordova platform add android 

I hope this will help.

cheers!

Answer:

I tried the solution shown here, and now, I built successfully with Android.

Open file platforms/android/app/build.gradle

add

configurations.all { resolutionStrategy { force 'com.android.support:support-v4:27.1.0' } } 

after

dependencies { ... } 

Answer:

I had the same error. In my case I had to remove in my config.xml the following line:

<preference name="Orientation" value="all" />
