I followed your instructions to setup the toolchain for Android
but when I try to build a project with
$ qbs profile:"qt57-andgcc49_armv7
I still get the same error:
"The profile 'qt57-andgcc49_armv7-armv5te' does not exist.".
I also tried using older Qt Version but they did not work either.
At the moment I don't know what else to try.
I would like to know which version of Qbs you were using?
and what the Qbs file you are building looks like?
Thank you very much for your effort :)
