    I addressed your report in the support ticketing system but I want to update this thread to let the community know what is the cause for this particular error.

    The build log lists as a warning the error that is actually causing the build failure: Warning: [aapt] invalid resource directory name: /tmp/builds/GwzY7AAkDGaVEtgcGX/app/res XML. The error basically indicates that the Android resources in the app contain an incorrectly named folder. When you consider this information, you have to keep in mind that Android is case sensitive when it comes to resource paths. This is why the build expects to find the config.xml file under a folder named xml instead of inside a folder named XML. Although I am not sure why and how the folder was named with upper casing in your case, I suggested recreating the entire folder in the In-Browser client of AppBuilder through those steps:
    1. Open your project in the In-Browser client of AppBuilder
    2. In the Project Navigator, open the App_Resources/Android/XML/config.xml  file
    3. Copy the contents of the file to another file somewhere on your desktop
    4. Remove the entire XML folder under App_Resources/Android
    5. In the Project Navigator, right-click your project and select Edit Configuration.
    6. Select Android Config.xml
    7. Ensure that the newly created file is added under a folder named xml
    8. Once the file opens in the editor, paste the content from your original file (from step 3)
    9. Build your project again
    I hope this approach would help.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
