Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10600) 'cordova run android --release' does not use signed and zip-aligned version of APK
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2016 11:48:18 GMT
Eric Gopak created CB-10600:

             Summary: 'cordova run android --release' does not use signed and zip-aligned
version of APK
                 Key: CB-10600
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android
         Environment: Tested on Windows 8.1 with Cordova CLI 6.0.0 (and Ionic CLI 1.7.14)
            Reporter: Eric Gopak

Running command `cordova run android --release` builds the app successfully, both unsigned
and signed/zip-aligned versions. However, it then tries to use the unsigned version of the
APK. Here are the last lines of the output:

Total time: 31.35 secs
Built the following apk(s):
Using apk: C:/XXXXX/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/android-armv7-release-unsigned.apk
ERROR running one or more of the platforms: Failed to install apk to device: pkg: /data/local/tmp/android-armv7-release-unsigned.apk
You may not have the required environment or OS to run this project

It has worked before I updated Cordova with 'npm install -g cordova'.

I specify signing properties in a file '', which I copy to platforms/android/
folder. During the run/build I get prompted for the password, just as it has always been.

I believe it is just a problem of choosing the wrong APK from the list of built APKs (Cordova
probably chooses the one that comes earlier lexicographically)
