Google Play Console reports native Crash for Huawei P8

Post by trevix » Mon Oct 26, 2020 5:30 pm

The pre-Launch report of the Google Play Console reports a "Native crash of" (my App).
This only for 2 cell phone: Huawei P8 and P8 Lite (both with Android 5). Very popular in Italy and this is why I am concerned: I cannot simply exclude these devices.
The report is incomprehensible to me:

Beside buying a Huawei Phone (note, the problem is reported only for Android 5. I own a Huawei P8 but it has Android 7 and I thin is too difficult do downgrade) what else can I do?
I looked for a emulator of it for Android Studio, but I couldn't find a ready made one.
Also, I enrolled in the Huawei platform, but I am waiting for the registration as developer (not sure if this will help)

Thanks for any help

Android 5 is years out of date and I'm not sure LiveCode supports it any more. I'm not surprised it crashes.

I recall a crash on older devices if the app contains a browser widget. Does your app have one? If so, try creating a browser with the mobileControlCreate command instead. That might work.

Otherwise, if your app doesn't need some of the new features, you could try building with an older version of LiveCode that does fully support Android 5.
