Android release APK crash with java.lang.AssertionError: impossible in java.lang.Enum

I've just built an APK using Gradle for release (ProGuard 4.9 and signed). When I launch the app it crash on this error :

Looks like this error should not happen : https://android.googlesource.com/platform/libcore/+/9edf43dfcc35c761d97eb9156ac4254152ddbc55/libdvm/src/main/java/java/lang/Enum.java

My build.gradle contains :

buildTypes {
    release {
        runProguard true
        proguardFile file('./proguard-project.txt')
        signingConfig signingConfigs.release
    }
}

My proguard-project.txt contains

-useuniqueclassmembernames
-keepattributes SourceFile,LineNumberTable

+ a bunch of keep class, dontnote, dontwarn,...

When I remove ProGuard from build.gradle it do not crash.

When I was using ProGuard from an Ant build it worked (I recently migrated to Gradle).

Any known issue with Gradle + ProGuard ?

Thanks

You have to tell ProGuard to keep some enum methods.

The Android SDK tools use this ProGuard configuration to achieve it:

# For enumeration classes, see http://proguard.sourceforge.net/manual/examples.html#enumerations
-keepclassmembers enum * {
    public static **[] values();
    public static ** valueOf(java.lang.String);
}

You can either add the above rule to your ProGuard configuration or you can (what I'd prefer) include the default Android rules:

minifyEnabled true
proguardFile getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt')
proguardFile file('./proguard-project.txt')

How do I best silence a warning about unused variables?

c++ gcc warnings gcc-warning

I have a cross platform application and in a few of my functions not all the values passed to functions are utilised. Hence I get a warning from GCC telling me that there are unused variables.
