Release build kills http request


The problem with building my app is that when I build it with

cordova clean android
cordova build --release android 

+ sign + zipalign

the app fails to process any http / https request.
When I build with

cordova build --debug android

the requests work, but I can not upload it to the app store because it’s a debug build.

I would like to compare both final builds to identify the culprit. How can I compare the now binary AndroidManifest.xml files for instance? I found this post, yet I can not make any sense out of it for myself.

HTTP/S does not work in Android release build

Hi, did you found a solution for that?
Have a look on my problem thx.


I have the same problem, how did you solve it?
