[Solved] Android-android studio apk Install Error: INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED

I simply wrote a program today and found that it could not run all the time, prompting that the installation failed on the physical device

Installation failed due to: ‘null’

After checking on the Internet, most of the brothers said that it was a problem with the test mark, so just add it


But there are still problems after trying

Another brother said that this problem is related to the manifest file. It may be that there is a problem with the configuration of the manifest file. Therefore, I checked it from here. However, I was also very curious about how a hello world program has a configuration problem. I didn’t see any exceptions in the xml. I went to the apk generation directory to directly try to install it:

adb install -r -d a.apk

here I saw the error messages:

adb: failed to install app-debug.apk: Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED: Failed parse during installPackageLI: /data/app/vmdl631790294.tmp/base.apk (at Binary XML file line #20): com.leonard.goot.MainActivity: Targeting S+ (version 31 and above) requires that an explicit value for android:exported be defined when intent filters are present]

Find the problem, because the activity does not have the export property caused by the modification can be installed after debugging, Done!
