OpenKeyChain seems to crash in Android 5

OpenKeyChain seems to crash in Android 5

requires Android 4.0.3 or newer.

Both during key making and after pressing the skip setup.

This problem exists in all recent versions

6.0.4 crashes too? Which issue is this: Issues · open-keychain/open-keychain · GitHub ?





only this version worked

I’m afraid I won’t be able to do that because I’m not a member of github,
maybe its codes doesn’t support android 4 and 5 anymore since this version:
Because the problem seems to have started from this version

Usually there are four types of Architecture

The device I used was this one

can you at least get a stack trace? via ADB or Scoop | F-Droid - Free and Open Source Android App Repository

I don’t think there is a need for it. Probably the source of the problem is the json file.
If you check, this file was added from version

Exactly the crash started from the same version, (I faced the same problem in the outline application before) Probably the json file (and other things around it) causes the application to crash.

Therefore, I do not recommend using the json file in any application, Especially if it is supposed to be for Android 4 or 5.
Which was actually the case in this application.

There were 193 changed files between 5.8.2 and 6.0.0: Comparing v5.8.2...v6.0.0 · open-keychain/open-keychain · GitHub

so saying that “Probably the source of the problem is the json file.” when that file is just common when using Kotlin to build an app is rather odd.

again, please grab an actual stack trace of the app crashing so we can ask the developers to investigate

You can just go ahead and increase the Android requirement
(crash on 5.1 too)

attach that stack trace log already…

We are not the developers of that app

Latest 6.0.4 still crashes?

I have not faced any crash thankfully.
