NoClassDefFoundError while loading my activity

See original GitHub issue

Awesome library, makes custom fonts a breathe. Work fine on my testing device (Nexus 5 running M) but crashed with the following stack trace on a Samsung (no surprise there) device (GT S7272 running 4.2.2) Any ideas?

Checked… 1) Not using Android studio 2.0 so no instant run 2) Multidex 1.0.1 is in use 3) Calling Multidex.init() in attachBaseContext method of Application class & Calligraphy config calling in onCreate of Application class. I am facing this issue only on 4.0

Happens to me a bit randomly on a Samsung (Galaxy Nexus) Device running 4.2.1.

I’m using MultiDex. I have two flavors. One that is minSdkVersion 21 and another minSdkVersion 15.

When I develop on my Nexus 5 I use the first one for faster multidex build. Sometimes, I give a go at the Galaxy Nexus to check whether everything still works fine on it. So I switch to the second flavor. I usually do a clean project and launch the app.

The app crashes on start on the Galaxy Nexus with java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:$Builder

If I try to launch the app multiple times, it randomly works after multiple try.
