Hi,

I have followed the guide at this thread
http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=306050
and successfully build my own version with a little tweak for my Philips TV. (a setting to force AC3 Transcoding without enabling sync playback to display)

this becomes a debug build where I cant disable the debug log.
So I want to build a release version.

I found in /tools/depends/Makefile.include.in
DEBUG_BUILD=yes
that I Changes to
DEBUG_BUILD=no

Building a new version went well, and got an apk file.
But installing this on the TV failed direclty when I opened the apk file. With an Error during the Analysing phase of the file.

Did I changed the correct setting to build a release version?
Or Do I miss a release key in the Keystore on my ubuntu setup?

I only created a debug key as told in the guide I followed.
