Remove your Android SDK and reinstalled

This solution worked for me:

sudo chmod -R 777 /Applications/Android\

I just modified this stack overflow answer to fit my Android Studio installation path.


This worked for me, legend!

thanks mate… you saved my day…!!

Thanks worked for my gradle-4.4

ionic cordova platform rm android
ionic cordova platform add android

this worked for me
