Numbers and equal signs displayed when executing "ionic run android" in Ionic2


#1

I’ve been testing the Ionic 2 beta. I initially had an issue where ionic could not connect, and found the solution was to point to the Android SDK, which fixed that issue - no errors are obviously being spit out until the end.

Now, however, nothing comes up in the emulator at all until a final error. I cannot tell what is going on, because everything output to the command prompt from ionic run android is numbers and equal signs, which I assume is a bug, like this:

8, 1=111, 2=32, 3=116, 4=97, 5=114, 6=103, 7=101, 8=116, 9=32, 10=115, 11=112, 12=101, 13=99, 14=105, 15=102, 16=105, 17=101, 18=100, 19=44, 20=32, 21=100, 22=101, 23=112, 24=108, 25=111, 26=121, 27=105, 28=110, 29=103, 30=32, 31=116, 32=111, 33=32, 34=100, 35=101, 36=118, 37=105, 38=99, 39=101, 40=32, 41=39, 42=49, 43=57, 44=50, 45=46, 46=49, 47=54, 48=56, 49=46, 50=50, 51=53, 52=51, 53=46, 54=49, 55=48, 56=49, 57=58, 58=53, 59=53, 60=53, 61=53,

Finally, an error is spit out:
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/android/dx/command/Main : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

EDIT updated my JDK and all is well! No idea what these numbers and equals mean, however.
