This sounds like a server side error on the webservice from Ionic that is used to transform the images. Just try again maybe?

If it doesn’t work, try to intercept the request with a proxy (Charles Web Proxy or similar) and look at what error you are actually getting with this status code 400.

i try with another proxy and get same error

You aren’t connecting to the web directly?

i had a friend try it from a different location i still get the same problem.

I just ran ionic cordova resources with Ionic CLI v3-beta8 successfully.

Did it work for him or not?

And you are?

browser is not a platform relevant for resources. Try android or ios.

I also faced this problem and solved it by resizing the splash

project/resources/splash.png => 2208x2208 to 2732x2732

then again run ionic Cordova resources

I hope this will solve your problem

Might be an old topic, but I can’t generate any resources:

Here is a debug from ionic cordova resources --verbose

                        border: 0;
                <iframe src="//"></iframe>

Any ideas?

See here: Ionic Resources service is broken


This error can also be due to the change in dimension of project/resources/splash.png => 2208x2208 to 2732x2732.
Please check.

Try to make splash and icon images 2732*2732 and before that go to resources directory and remove them manually then go to your command and run this command :-
“ionic cordova resources -s” to generate splash.
“ionic cordova resources -i” to generate icons.

  1. No, changing the Splash size doesn’t help.
  2. Problem still persists, I’m on Ionic CLI 3.19.0

Did you find a fix for this?

yes. my mistake was photo/image size and type (png). Make sure they are correct and the same everywhere. Otherwise it works perfectly well.

Someone can fix it? how? Thx

i have the same problem now, how to fix ?

It turned out to be a issue on Ionic’s server. Not sure what exactly was causing the problem.
