proguard-project.txt:

-keep class android.support.v4.app.** { *; }
-keep interface android.support.v4.app.** { *; }
-keep class com.actionbarsherlock.** { *; }
-keep interface com.actionbarsherlock.** { *; }

-keepattributes *Annotation*

-dontwarn org.w3c.dom.bootstrap.**
-dontwarn org.joda.time.**
-dontwarn org.xmlpull.v1.**

How can I fix the error?

Thank you very much!


Updated:

The app can be run in emulator after adding one line to proguard-project.txt:

-keep class * { *; }

Any better solution?

Please help.

Thanks a lot.

How to solve:

add one line to proguard-project.txt:

-keep class org.xmlpull.v1.** { *; }
