No network in android emulator

Ti SDK: 1.3.0
Android: API 2.2

Currently I am not able to access the network from the android emulator (note that I don't have the iphone emu installed in order to compare).

How should I go about resolving this? I have pasted my trace here : http://hals-paste.pastebin.com/EQj8nm9p , which contains a number of errors that may or may not need resolving. Although I have another issue which I will explain in another post, the emulator and apps work as expected in other respects. Any advice is appreciated.

I have searched the Q&A, but have not found any information about this issue, so I hope someone will kindly offer me some help.


PS. The Q&A formatting syntax for links does not seem to work. If I am doing it wrongly, please advise. Thanks!

  • What browser were you using for the syntax? It's a popup so if you right-clicked on it, it may not work.

    This is a common problem with the emulator. Occasionally, it boots up in a weird state. It's not a Titanium issue, it's an Android adb issue. It may take a couple of tries, but do the following.

    1. Exit the emulator
    2. From the command line execute: adb kill-server
    3. Wait 5 - 10 seconds then execute: adb start-server

    You should see a message that the adb service is starting. If not, repeat 2-3. In some very rare cases, it's only happened twice all year to me, you'll just need to reboot your machine.

    • Thank you for your lightening fast answer Don.
      I tried your suggestion of using kill-server/start-server, but it did not fix it. I deleted the ~/,android folder in my profile, and rebooted, and then started Tidev and launched the app, and this time it worked.
      Thank you once again! :)
