Gradle commands fail on API 23 Google API emulator image (armeabi-v7a)
I can’t seem to get Gradle commands from the command line to work with the API 23 Google API emulator image (
Google APIs ARM (armeabi-v7a)) – I always get a
Steps to reproduce:
- Create an AVD with API 23
Google APIs ARM (armeabi-v7a)
- Clone https://github.com/googlemaps/android-maps-utils (or use your own project)
gradlew installDebugfrom the command line
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
- What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ‘:demo:installDebug’.
If you run
gradlew connectedCheck you’ll see a similar error:
- What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ‘:library:connectedDebugAndroidTest’.
com.android.builder.testing.api.TestException: com.android.builder.testing.api.DeviceException: com.android.ddmlib.ShellCommandUnresponsiveException
I can install/run the project and tests from Android Studio (1.4) without any problems.
Gradle commands seem to run fine on the API 21 Google API emulator image from the command line.
Here is an example failure on Travis for API 23 Google API emulator image:
…and an example successful build when using the API 21 Google API emulator image:
The only difference between the two builds is the Google API emulator API level of 23 vs. 21:
I’ve opened an AOSP issue here on this problem:
One Solution collect form web for “Gradle commands fail on API 23 Google API emulator image (armeabi-v7a)”
Android Gradle Plugin had a hardcoded timeout value that was too low.
Google fixed it in version 2.0.0-beta3:
Will be in 2.0.0-beta3.
So what do we put in build.gradle to set this timeout value?
Currently it’s all attached to android.adbOptions.timeOutInMs.
Sample: Google project Increasing ADB timeout and adding Travis-ci support. It works!.
It’s the same issue that has been reported here
Read the workaround from the unity3 developer about the hardcoded and low timeout here
and star the issue
You are right. It’s not a Travis-ci issue, to reproduce it, you only need to create an armeabi-v7a emulator and try to install any app locally from gradle command.

You can avoid the
installVariant tasks and this issue using adb:
./gradlew clean ./gradlew assembleDebug ./gradlew assembleDebugAndroidTest adb install app/build/outputs/apk/app-debug.apk adb install app/build/outputs/apk/app-debug-androidTest-unaligned.apk adb shell am instrument -w com.google.samples.apps.topeka.test/android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner
