Phonegap Build Splash Screens

I have followed the new procedure for adding splash screens but now only the default phonegap splash screen is shown ?

Build passes on dev mode but fails when I sign the app for release:

  • What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':app:mergeReleaseResources'.
> java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: Android resource compilation failed
  /var/gimlet/tmp/47036091285260/3836037/app/src/main/res/mipmap-mdpi/ic_launcher.png: error: failed to read PNG signature: file does not start with PNG signature.

Did you get rid of any icon lines, such as

<icon src='{icon}' />

It turns out that my icon.png was in fact actually a .gif file. I changed the image to an actual .png file and now seems ok android as does the splash screen.

@Leader: Blog from Jan 13 - What’s new with PhoneGap Build - has a link to a sample config.xml.
This contains still one icon line:
preference …
icon src=’{icon}’
preference n…
That is why I did not delete this line in my updated apps. No problems with this line. Really delete it anyway?

You’re right - that line is OK to have. We’ll fix the docs.

Please could you kindly share your config file for my reference. I have been battling to get the splash screen work. Thanks

Hi, the best way is to create a brand new project as the manifest is then generated. You can then copy that manifest file to your project.

OK, pardon the blank project dosen’t generate splash.
