Thanks!  Nadav is referring to:

Unfortunately, the currently uploaded john-1.8.0-android.tar.gz looks
wrong to me in that it reuses the old run directory contents (*.chr,
john.ini, password.lst) from the older build of 1.7.8.  Those files have
since changed in 1.8.0, and in fact the format of *.chr files changed -
meaning that incremental mode won't work in this build with those files.

Nadav, we'd appreciate more detail on how you built this, such as to
enable others to produce updated builds for 1.8.1 and on.

Did you try building bleeding-jumbo off GitHub?  I imagine folks would
find that a lot more useful.
