Unable to find a ‘userdata.img’ file for ABI armeabi to copy into the AVD folder – Don’t be too selective when installing Android SDK

While preparing myself for the presentation for Mobilization^2 where I’m speaking about Android concurrency, I ran across “Unable to find a ‘userdata.img’ file for ABI armeabi to copy into the AVD folder”. It turned out quite easy to fix and so I found the answer very quickly – just installed ARM EABI v7a System Image for the different Android versions and the error was gone.

I used to not care about what I install, but this time I was very picky and selected only the packages I thought were crucial for developing Android applications on Mac OS. With no system image I was not able to create a Android Virtual Device (AVD) because of the error. Since it’s gone, I go on.
