Android Lightroom Erases Metadata

I recently downloaded the Android version of Lightroom on my Panasonic DMC-CM1 running 5.0.2 Lollipop, and I love that it allows me to edit the RAW .rw2 files natively in the app. However, when I go to share the edited photo to Flickr, the metadata gets garbled and no longer shows information about the camera. It just says f1.0, which is impossible since the maximum aperture is f2.8. I did click the share settings and enabled sharing of all metadata, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I recognize that this is a bit of a unique case as most Android phones don't shoot .rw2 format. When I look at the output jpg the metadata isn't there, but it is in the Lightroom gallery, so I know it's getting erased in Lightroom.

In addition, when I try to share the photo to the chat app WeChat, it wont share at all and throws an error, although that might be coming from WeChat and not Lightroom.
