How can I remove this android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO from build ?


Look at this solution. Be sure to read the comments!

Thanks phil…

BUT looks like Volt dont support this:

<platform name="android">
<hook type="after_prepare" src="remove_permissions.js"/>

I am stuck here :frowning:

Goole Play return this - so I really want this fixed

Users that have the APK with version code 290927 may need to accept the new permissions android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE, android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO, which may result in them not upgrading to this version of the app.

Looks like this was working for PGB - Is there a way for VOLTBUILDER ?

<config-file platform="android" parent="/manifest" mode="delete">
      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />
<config-file platform="android" parent="/manifest" mode="delete">
      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />

Correct. VoltBuilder doesn’t allow hooks - it opens up security vulnerabilities.

There’s a note about config-file in the docs:

  • Obsolete usage of <config-file> in config.xml. : You’ll need to make some changes. Up to cli-7.0.1, PhoneGap allowed this type of clause:
<config-file platform=”ios” parent=”SomeXMLElement” mode=”replace”>
  <SomeXMLElement someAttribute=”text” >Go Skiing</SomeXMLElement>

Cordova then started used config-file for its plugins, which conflicted with the PhoneGap implementation. PhoneGap then changed to use Cordova’s edit-config. You’ll need to change these in your config.xml. Consult the documentation for the affected controls for the details.

Well - Thanks for input

But the big quistion is: How can I remove this android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO using VOLT?

VoltBuilder is a wrapper around Cordova, so the question here is whether this can be done when running Cordova as a batch process.

We don’t know the answer to this right now. There are also open issues on Cordova which may affect the answer.
