Push Issue in Building BAR from APK

[ Edited ]

Hi Everyone!


First time poster on these forums. I am really stuck on an issue I believe to be with push notifications. I am converting an Android app to a BB10 BAR using the Eclipse plugin. The plugin works fantastically when I try to build it using the "BlackBerry Tools > Sign for BlackBerry World", but when it attempts to sign the BAR it chokes and gives the following error message:

Error: Code signing request failed because [_sys_use_consumer_push] in Entry-Point-System-Actions is not allowed.    DocHaloAndroid.bar    /DocHaloAndroid/dist/Android 3.0    /Users/alottazs/Documents/dochalo/dochalo_android/DocHaloAndroid/dist/Android 3.0/DocHaloAndroid.bar    BlackBerry Signing Problem

I have scoured the interwebs looking for an explanation. I have tried disabling certain portions of the app. But to no avail, I cannot get past this issue. Since I cannot sign it, I cannot deploy it, etc.


Any thoughts from more experienced BB developers that might assist a humble Android dev?


EDIT: I found that commenting these permissions from the AndroidManifest.xml allowed to at least sign it and deploy it. Unfortunately it crashes when it runs because my app NEEDS these permissions.

Hi Justin,


Yes. I have. Followed it to a T. Sorry that I did not mention that.
