Generate 64bit apk for ionic 1 project

Hi all :wave: I’m picking up an old Ionic 1 project from a couple of years ago. To keep our app in the Google play store I need to somehow generate a 64 bit APK. I’m a little lost on how to do that - I’ve not touched ionic for the last 2 years and a hell of a lot has changed.

I’ve got a couple of questions,

  1. is crosswalk still needed? It looks like that plugin (or atleast the version of cross walk I have installed includes some .so files which will apperently prevent a 64 bit version?
  2. I don’t seem to be able to reinstall all my plugins. I’ve tried ionic state reset but apparently that’s been removed in CLI 3. I’ve tried ionic cordova prepare but I get Error: Your MyApplication platform does not have Api.js
  3. What CLI version should I be running to build an old ionic 1 app, bearing in mind I need to generate a 64 bit APK.

If anyone could help or point me in the right direction that would be awesome.

ionic info gives me:

cli packages: (/usr/local/lib/node_modules)

    @ionic/cli-utils  : 1.19.1
    ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.19.1

global packages:
