After using ProGuard on Android application with some native (JNI, C++) code – application crashes in loading process. Message:

Any ideas, what am I doing wrong?


The right answer is “Use logcat with adb to catch normal log”. This is the best way, I think.

adb -e logcat > output.txt

Of course that was the problem with reflection api and renaming private methods.
