[4.26] Cannot package for android

Hi everyone,

I am having a hard time packaging for android on UE4.26. I keep getting the same error over and over no matter what I do.
My entire environment is set up to package for android below 4.25 as well as “for and above” 4.25 so I know the problem isn’t some missing environment variable or SDK/NDK installation. I was actually able to package for android up to 4.26 preview 6 but since preview 7 and with the 4.26 official release I cannot package.

This is the error I keep getting:

UATHelper: Packaging (Android (ASTC)): Z:\app\src\main\java\com\epicgames\ue4\ error: cannot find symbol
UATHelper: Packaging (Android (ASTC)): powerManager.addThermalStatusListener(getMainExecutor(), new PowerManager.OnThermalStatusChangedListener() {

Has anyone seen this?
Many thanks in advance.


I’ve been trying as well, no luck…

Also having the same exact problem.

I asked on the Unreal Slackers ar-vr channel and got this reply:

  • newer version of android NDK has that function
  • 4.26 updated the NDK again to higher than 4.25

Try to update android studio

I installed the 4.26 Preview and had this error. Than i made this tutorial UNREAL ENGINE 4.25.1 PACKAGING FOR ANDROID TUTORIAL UPDATED! - YouTube and it works. Than I update to 4.26 Release and had the Error again. Than I switched between my old Codeworks SDK and the SDKs i installed from the tutorial and now it works again. I dont know why… it tooks me a day… maybe it is problem with the “Accept SDK License”

Hi. I have launched on my android device, and I got this error. (When I package, I have this error). I open Android Studio (3.5.3) and install SDK API lvl 29 (it’s Android Q). Next I try again package my project. And it worked! )



Just downloaded android sdk 29 and everything worked fine


Has anybody tried to use GooglePAD (Google Play Asset Delivery) to try and package a game using App Bundles rather then APK’s?

Is there any solutions to this yet? I’ve reinstalled all my android SDK and NDK but still nothing

this is the solution
