Hello,

Check that every thing in config.xml is set to your needs. Take care of widget id.

yes, here https://ionicframework.com/docs/intro/deploying/

Once: Create key. Keep it safe, without you can not update your app anymore.

  1. Create app:
  2. sign your app with jarsigner and your key
  3. zipalign your app, here your app gets myname.apk

example run in cmd, use your paths to the tools:

“C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_131\bin\keytool.exe” -genkey -v -keystore mykey-key.jks -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000 -alias mykey-alias

ionic cordova build android --prod --release

“C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_131\bin\jarsigner.exe” -verbose -sigalg SHA1withRSA -digestalg SHA1 -keystore myapp-key.jks android-release-unsigned.apk myapp-alias

C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\build-tools\26.0.0\zipalign.exe -v 4 android-release-unsigned.apk bestappevername.apk
