Error: Could not find gradle wrapper within android sdk. Might need to update yo ur Android SDK


#21

Thanks @dacookie! Quick fix for me as well.


#22

Good catch, worked for me. Found that you need to be careful with where the gradle wrapper is located when using multiple disks (i.e. SSD and HDD on the same laptop!). Seems to be a bit easier when everything is installed on the same disk.


#23

Android SDK tools have been updated to 25.3 and it doesn’t have template folder anymore. Do not update SDK tools to 25.3.X.


#24

There soon will be a new version of cordova-android that will fix these problems. For now you can use the old tools or use the still-in-development version of cordova-android: http://stackoverflow.com/a/42797817/252627

Thanks, fixed “gradle wrapper” issue, but ionic emulate dont work anyway, it seems that ionic needs older sdk where android was CLI, now typing android to CL tells me that it is deprecated. So ionic emulate command die with error.


#26

I use ionic run android and if there is no device connected, emulator starts automatically. I have installed latest android platform and build tools but SDK tools still in version 25.2.3.


#27

Thanks @trisna1192… Ur solution really worked for me.
Just a small update, For mac users, paste the extracted file in ~/Library/Android/sdk folder.


#28

Thank you very much. I tried it before and it didn’t work. Today I formatted my Mac and reinstalled everything, did that and it’s not show that error any longer, just others haha.


#29

Thanks @DaCookie. its working now.


#30

Thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:


#31

Great! Thanks so much, it worked like a charm!


#32

Followed @daCookie’s advice. Fixed my problem. Download the file, move the templates/ directory into your sdk/tools/, and I was able to build.

Thanks

I’m really confused… I had same issue. I did as @DaCookie advised. And finally it worked! But…
My client Android Studio recommended me to update it… And I did it… Damn! It doesn’t work again. And the tools folder doesn’t compile the project.

Currently error.
