How come flutter build ios –obfuscate –split-debug-info= failed with warnings, but flutter build ios works?

Issue

Please know that flutter build ios works perfectly without any warning or error.

But when I do flutter build ios --obfuscate --split-debug-info=/_app/obfuscate

it failed with this error :

Encountered error while building for device. 

I got an error from Stackoverflow thus cannot submit without truncating the warnings, thus I cut it off in the middle. If you need more of those warnings please ask me and I will send it to you..

What am I missing here? The app and all works fine even in release mode. It is only when I add the --obfuscate flag it is like this.

Solution

Finally I solved this problem. But the solution is tedious and I’m not sure if this is the best solution. But I think this is the robust solution:

  1. Delete Flutter entirely from your computer
  2. Reinstall flutter with the latest version.
  3. In the ios folder of your project directory, delete "Podfile" file, "Podfile.lock" file, and "Pods" directory.
  4. Do flutter clean in your project directory.
  5. Then rerun the app as intended.

Then it works… at least for me.

Anyone else has other solution?
