Debugging on Android

  • Hey Guys,

    I'm trying to produce an Android application with Debug Symbols so that I can read my crash dumps from Breakpad.

    Right now when I try and debug my android app I get this dialog:

    "This does not seem to be a "Debug" build.
    Setting breakpoints by file name and line number may fail.
    Section .debug_info: Not found.
    Section .debug_abbrev: Not found.

    If I output verbose logs while deploying my application I see this line:
    "Stripping libraries to minimize size."

    I know there are some issues debugging on android (as you can see in the following link), but I'm currently testing with a KitKat device (Android 4.4).

    I'm currently running QT Creator 3.2.2, Qt 5.4, Android NDK r10e. I have also tried different versions of Qt Creator and the Android NDK - but so far, I still have no luck.


    1. Does anyone else have an android application debugging correctly? If so, what is your setup.
    2. Is Qt stripping debug symbols for Android - and can I turn this off.
