Appmethod Beta hotfix for FireMonkey apps on Android 5.0 (Lollipop)

Written by Sarina D on Posted in Usability

This hot fix addresses an issue with FireMonkey applications on devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop). The issue prevented array data from being properly exchanged between native code and the Android Java API. The most noticeable symptom of this issue was that images stored on FireMonkey forms would not be displayed on devices running Android 5 and could cause applications to terminate unexpectedly.

This zip contains all the contents of the lib\android folder.

Perform the following steps:

  1. Rename C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\lib\android to C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0\lib\android.bak
  2. Extract to C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\15.0

This requires Appmethod 1.15 to be installed. You can access the hotfix on the Downloads page.
