    Have the requirements changed?  I have an app that has been building for 6 months just fine.  I made some minor updates and the iOS version builds great.  The Android version refuses to build and I keep getting:

    Warning: [crunch] /tmp/builds/tBZ8PTr72W8vFfTr4M/app/res/drawable-nodpi/splashscreen.9.png: libpng warning: iCCP: Not recognizing known sRGB profile that has been edited
    Error: [crunch] ERROR: 9-patch image /tmp/builds/tBZ8PTr72W8vFfTr4M/app/res/drawable-nodpi/splashscreen.9.png malformed.

     I did not change the splash screen and I am familiar with 9 patch files.  I'm pretty sure mine is fine.  

     Any advice?

    Hello Phil,

    In the latest release (AppBuilder 2.9) we introduced an improvement in the cloud build process that now respects Ant failures from the server. This means that if we get a 9-patch or different error during the cloud build, we will fail that build attempt in the respectful AppBuilder client and will also show the exact error that has caused the failure. In other words, the reason for the successful builds of your project before the 2.9 release was that the 9-patch error was not respected.

    Further, I would suggest you to double check the imported splash screen image, as it is possible that there is an issue on our side or the image has malformed during the upload. If you think that the image is a correct 9-patch and the build is still failing, I would kindly ask you to send it over for investigation. With it, we will see if there is an issue in our validation process.

    Thank you for the help in advance.
