  • Minification itself is fine, but the resulting app and files still needs to be valid. The first error you show says you're not ending up with UTF-8 files with a BOM, but you should be able to add that (open the file in the editor and resave with the BOM) and be fine. The second error appears to be a JavaScript syntax error, so you'll need to track that down and fix it.

    Note that minification won't provide any performance benefit as it can in a web app. The bytecode generation will trump the benefits of having smaller plain-text code.
