Harman SDK 22.214.171.124 Android Target SDK Version: 28, in August 2020 Target min API level 29+ for new app and november 2020 Target min API level 29+ for app updates ?
pol2095 I believe the Harman update for 29 is supposed to be released next week.
ma I wonder if we could swtich Android Target SDK Version to 29 by ourself, not depending on the Harman update?
ma so without this i wont be able to update my app in August????

(Disclaimer: Could work or not work. ) I've done this before with older SDKs in the past. I think the general thinking is, if you know for sure your app doesn't need anything vital from the sdk update, you could simply change the target in the manifest. Use at your own risk though. 😉 But if you're replying on several external libraries (ANEs, etc) I would wait till everything is updated.
sun9278888 There are some issues with doing it ourselves right now with the current SDK and armv7 builds: https://github.com/Gamua/Adobe-Runtime-Support/issues/372#issuecomment-665972179
Looks like we'll have to wait for the next SDK update from Harman to target 29 for new apps, though we can still use 28 for now for updating existing apps.
sun9278888 Exactly as everyone else has stated, the answer is "it depends".
The easiest way to tell is to try for yourself and see if you have any issues.
There will be some things that change around privacy / permissions, eg file access on the SD card. Also any new SDK features in API 29 you probably won't be able to access until the build tools in AIR are updated as well.

August for new applications, November for updates

When I use targetSdkVersion29, a crash occurs on Android Q phones, libc: Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 2 (SEGV_ACCERR), fault addr 0xc22fb000 in tid 27208
an other thing, Google intend to require new apps and games to publish with the Android App Bundle on Google Play in the second half of 2021
pol2095 Thank you for the info. Now Harman will really have to add proper bundle support to the AIR SDK.
Pretty sure they are planning on this, just the iOS 13 and issues with the splash screen have been taking precedence.
Their current AAB packaging is almost there, just unfortunately lost all ANE resources, which made most ANEs useless 🙂
AAB packaging lost for Android TV and using space in path file too.

Sorry, but I do not understand this, when you have time can you elaborate a bit? And if you don't mind...a link to the article. Thank you.
Problem creating .aab archive for Android TV

Changing default Android target SDK to 29: this will update generated APK files so that the default targetSdkVersion value is 29
Thank you Harman 🙏
