Xamarin Android does not allow assembly-level usage of the PreserveAttribute unlike Xamarin iOS.
Preserve at the assembly-level is essential for IoC heavy projects since static analysis of the code can never detect usage of IoC registered implementation classes (since they're activated via reflection).
It's enabled for iOS so it should also be for Android, to maintain source-level compatibility.
This support has been added and will ship as part of the next release made from master.
I am trying to verify this issue, but I am not sure about the steps.
Could you please provide some steps or a small test case?
So that I can verify this issue.
