    Wish B4A: auto-generate obfuscation mapping file for app bundle

    The AAB app bundle can now include a mapping file to de-obfuscate stack traces. Could B4A auto-generate that file and include it when compiling the app bundle?

    Android Question code obfuscation - mapping file for Google Play listing?

    In this post about obfuscating code, a mapping file is mentioned. However, the Google Play console doesn't seem to accept it as a valid mapping file to upload, which makes my obfuscated app's stack traces (from the Google console) harder to understand. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

    Android Question APK obfuscation

    Hi, When I am trying to obfuscate the apk code using the inbuilt obfuscation, it is changing only the variable names in the code which I have added, without affecting the included libraries. Hence I tried to use the free tool Pro guard for obfuscating the apk code to prevent easy de-compilation...
