Playstore error: App Bundle contains native code, and you’ve not uploaded debug symbols


When I want to release a new flutter app bundle to the Playstore. I get this error: “This App Bundle contains native code, and you’ve not uploaded debug symbols. We recommend you upload a symbol file to make your crashes and ANRs easier to analyze and debug.” I can’t find any way to fix this. I’m new with flutter and releasing app’s and getting a bit desperate… Any help would be fantastic.

When I add “android.defaultConfig.ndk.debugSymbolLevel ‘FULL'” (on line 1) to the app/build.gradle as suggested in I get This error in the Android studio terminal. I use this command “flutter build appbundle”.

Error in Terminal: FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • Where: Build file ‘C:\Users\filip\AndroidStudioProjects\ehbo\android\app\build.gradle’ line: 1

  • What went wrong: A problem occurred evaluating project ‘:app’.

Could not get unknown property ‘android’ for project ‘:app’ of type org.gradle.api.Project.

  • Try: Run with –stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with –info or –debug option to get more log output. Run with –scan to get full insights.

Before you can upload debug symbols files, you must be using Android Gradle plugin version 4.1 or higher.

Looks like it will come only with Android Studio 4.1, because I can only get Gradle 4.0.0 automatically now.

So I suggest you to return classic Play console and it will let you through 🙂
