How do you create or find a “userdata.img” file for ABI armeabi to copy into the AVD folder

I am running the Hello World Android SDK test on Eclipse. After I installed the latest platform for Android SDK I tried to create an AVD.

In Eclipse:

  • Android media player returns IllegalStateException
  • Multiple pages at the same time on a ViewPager
  • How can I set up custom namespaces in layout file in Android studio?
  • Assign static IP address for Wifi network on Android 3.x and 4.x
  • Where are the schemas for XML files on an Android project?
  • Running multiple services
    1. Selected Window > AVD Manager.
    2. Click New….
    3. The Create New AVD dialog appears.
    4. Type the name of the AVD, such as “my_avd“.
    5. Choose a target.(latest platform)
    6. Ignore the rest of the fields.
    7. Click Create AVD.

    But when I returned to Eclipse I got a red error message saying:

    "unable to find a "userdata.img" file for ABI armeabi to copy into the AVD folder.

    I have a windows vista 64 bit, Eclipse 3.7.2, and Android platform 4.0.3. If anyone could please help me, I really appreciate it. If you might have an idea of what I might be doing wrong I am all ears. 🙂

    Click on Android SDK manager in eclipse..
    Then in Android 4.0.x your version.. click on ARM EABI v7A System Image.. and click on Install package..

    It should work then…

    just for the record: i had the same error and couldn’t solve the issue with the tipps here. in the end i found out, that i didn’t made a choice in the CP/ABI dialog after creating a new device with the avd manager.. (this field was left open in a tutorial i found….)

    Actually, Need to Android 4.0.x your version.. click on ARM EABI v7A System Image.. and click on Install package.. as per Raju.

    After that I followed the advice of making sure that I filled out the CPU/ABI field and then all was good.

    if you have installed “ARM EABI v7A System Image”,still didn’t work then try “android update avd -n h” in shell(h is the name of my android virtual device,repalce it with your specific avd name)
