Crash on Android 7.1



I’m using latest SQLCipher 4.0.1 for Android and in Google play store logs I can see error that happened on one device:

Any idea why it might happen?


There is not enough information to say why this is crashing. However, I noticed the trace referring to native_rekey. That function should be called very rarely, only to change the key on an existing encrypted database. Can you explain the circumstances under which you are using rekey?


Unfortunately, Google play store does not provide exact error message.

Yes, database encryption key is changed when app upgrades (I mean, it only changes in this latest app version). I only saw that crash on one device. Sorry I can’t provide you more information, that’s all I have.
