Workaround for Error: Cannot Find Matching Debug Symbols

by BlackBerry Development Advisor on ‎08-12-2015 11:05 AM (1,827 Views)

Currently, debug symbols are not available for all in market BlackBerry 10 OS releases.  If you attempt to debug your application using a version we have not published debug symbols for you will receive the error of "Cannot find matching debug symbols".  This will prevent BlackBerry Momentics from starting its debugger.


You can work around this issue by enabling debugging with mismatched debug symbols.  Use the following steps to enable this feature, which is disabled by default.


  1. Start BlackBerry Momentics.
  2. Click on the Window menu.
  3. Click on Preferences.
  4. Expand BlackBerry.
  5. Select Targets.
  6. Check "Allow debugging and profiling with mismatched symbols".
  7. Click OK.

How to get this matching debug symbols in first place? I have no devices running 10.3.1 (only 10.3.2) and could not downgrade to 10.3.1 to install this debug symbols (yes, it is BlackBerry's issue)?

Debug symbols are included with each BlackBerry Native SDK.  So as long as you have the 10.3.1 SDK installed, you should be able to use this workaround.
