Dropbox Sync Android arm64 support

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

Hello there,
I'm using the Dropbox Sync API (mostly for the use of the Datastore, but also some file access). In my Android app I'm current the following crash report from a Nexus 9 Android tablet:

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: dalvik.system.PathClassLoader[DexPathList[[zip file "/data/app/net.geero.prayermate-1/base.apk"],nativeLibraryDirectories=[/data/app/net.geero.prayermate-1/lib/arm64, /vendor/lib64, /system/lib64]]] couldn't find "libDropboxSync.so"
at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary(Runtime.java:366)
at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(System.java:989)

...

I can't see any libDropbox.so in an arm64 folder - any idea what's going on?
(is it possibly because I another another NDK dependency that has an arm64-v8a .so file? If so, can I make a copy of one of the existing dropbox so files into an arm64-v8a folder? if so, which one is best?)

Unfortunately, the Sync SDK doesn't currently support 64-bit architectures, but I'm sending this along as a feature request. Sorry I can't be of more help!

Hi there, it seems crazy that Dropbox Sync apps can't run on phones that have 64 bit chips - is there seriously no workaround for this? (I don't mind it running in 32 bit or something like that!) Any ETA on when this will be resolved?

Hi Dawid, unfortunately the Sync SDK has been deprecated and will not be receiving further updates. You can find more information in the announcement here:
