like below fixes the issue I have found solution:
Get Proguard - copy proguard.jar into known directory (say MyProject/proguard) Prepare proguard.cfg -describing what and how optimize/obfuscate. This process thoroughly described in Proguard's manual Prepare following ANT's build.xml (or smth like this one) - great thanx to this guy

code :
-keep class !com.myOrg.myApp.pkgNameA.** { *; }

seems to work fine You need to save some classes from being obfuscated. A typical proguard configuration file for an Android project is as below. This link should be useful: Proguard for Android
