Recently I started seing a strange behavior, when I run
ionic cordova run android
to deploy my debug version of the app to an actual android device, the generated app-debug.apk does not reflect the changes I made, and when I look at the app-debug.apk file I see that the date and time has not changed. No matter how many times I keep running the above command nothing changes.
This behavior is also valid when building a --release version too.
It does not fix until I restart my Mac computer.
My working environment
OS: MacOS Big Sur npm: 8.3.2 ionic/cli: 6.18.1 cordova: 11.0.0 cordova-android: ^10.0.0 ionic/angular-toolkit: ^2.1.1 angular/core: ~9.1.6 ionic/angular: ^5.0.0
I don’t have any clue to what has happened that prevents the apk from updating and it is driving me crazy.
Any thoughts would halp and thanks in advance
