    Ever since the June 25th release, I can't update my app on my Android Phone using LiveSync. I thought I read that I'll have to rebuild and redeploy the app because breaking changes were released. Normally that would be okay. However, I can't even download the latest version to manually deploy to my Android phone because that feature is broken. I can create a pseudo-build using Mist but the link it provides is broken and doesn't download anything. Graphite can't even create the build and just shows "your package failed to build". 

    Using
    Cordova 2.4.0 (but changing the project to 2.7.0 doesn't work either)
    HTC Desire (Android version 2.3.5)

    FYI
    I read the v1.6 release notes and looked over the breaking changes section. Looks like the folder structure for Android apps was changed from content to www but I couldn't find that path anywhere in my code to change. I even went to my repository on github and didn't find it there. I didn't find any other useful information on things I would need to change to get this new release to work. I also changed the build configuration from my normal Release setting to Debug but that didn't fix anything either. The simulator continues to work as expected. My issue is with building and deploying to the Android device only.

    Also, I got the error message "invalid post content" when I tried to create this additional information in the original post. That was the entire error message. Didn't tell me why or invalid characters I used. Not very helpful when I try to post a question to a forum about a bug and can't because there's another bug in the forum entry page. Found that extremely annoying.

    Hi Jordan,

    It seems that one of the segments of your Application Identifier is a Java Reserved Word - default. Android does not allow this so you will have to change it. More information can be found here.

    You can see this error in output that gets printed out in the Log pane.

    Thanks Stefan. Changing the app id fixed the problem.
