Sorry to hear about the issue @alonrosenfeld, we’ll start looking into it and get back to you as soon as we can!

Hi @alonrosenfeld,
Could you enable support access to the app and may I start a few test builds to investigate the issue? (you can find a guide here on how to enable support user: )

done, thanks!

Hello there! @alonrosenfeld I don’t know if the issue is solved or not, just wanted to follow up.
are the builds running now?

Partially, I managed to run iOS only using Cordova version 8.0.0 and NOT latest.
Android now fails for various reasons that I couldn;t figure out yet such as:

Could not resolve all files for configuration ‘:app:releaseCompileClasspath’.

Obviously this is very frustrating and since time is an issue I’m back to building versions manually for now…

Hello there! could it be that there is a dependency from jcenter() that it does not find? if yes, thn you can solve it to put google() in the first place in the build.gradle files repositories.
