On monday we will add additional information regarding this issue.
As the error states, the NDK is required to use this feature.
This should be installed by the unified installer, so you can run the installer to get it.
You can also get it directly from here: http://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/ndk/index.html
Just be sure to set your Xamarin Studio SDK Location for the NDK to the downloaded/extracted location.
After that, please try again!
Today we have checked this thing after setting NDK in XamarinStudio-Preferences. We are successfully able to run the application in release mode after selecting "Embed assemblies in native code" in project option.
