AOT compile not working (for Android)

ZenDroidZenDroid USMember ✭✭✭

This is my repository with a demonstration of the issue.
This is simple standard project with one page. I created archive for publishing(release mode).
If I use "Aot compile" option I get error - "Apk failed to install Error:could not parse error string". If I disable this option than apk is work.
For use my test project update option AndroidSigningKeyStore in ApkSignerIssue.Android.csproj - insert your path. File test.keystore is in folder test.

I use Windows 10. I use Android Api 26. I try Api 25 - it is not work. I try use VS 15.5.7 and 15.8.0(preview) - with "AOT compile" it is not work.
Without this option, XF+Android can not be used - the first load of the app will take 8-10 seconds.

Earlier it worked. But now I can not build a package to release an update to my application.

Xamarin Team - your comments.

    they had some problems with previous version. why dont you update on 15.7.3 version and see if it is working

    Because I used 15.7.3 and it does not work. The package is compiled and installed, but when the application starts, the application crashes.
    Because I did an update on 15.5 three times, but now it's not working either.
    Because I have to deal with garbage and find solutions to other people's problems instead of writing code.

    Oh this was Problem with bundle into native assemblies. Has it not been solved yet? It was reported as resolved on their github

    Hello everybody,
    Downgrade to 15.5.7 working for me now.
    I do not know why this did not work right away, maybe I rebooted the computer. but now it works.
    That's good - I was able to release an update my app.
    And this is very sad - this is my fourth Downgrade in three months(starting from 15.6).
    Archiving the package does not work normally three months, three months, Karl!
    I understand everything very difficult, but three months, with a bunch of reviews about these errors.
    I do not know how Xamarin organized the product testing, but it's very sad. I lost a lot of time.

    When will this work?
