Nook HD Android Emulator Won't Start
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 09:48:47 +0000

I had a strange problem where the newly created Nook HD Android emulator won't start today. After launching it from the Android Virtual Device (AVD) Manager, the emulator screen is just blank; no Android logo or anything.

At first, I thought it just needed a long time to start. But after waiting four hours, I decided that's not the case. Windows Event Viewer did not show any related errors. So I was a little baffled.

Finally, after spending a lot of time adjusting setting and trying to launch it, it finally launched. The following setting worked for me.

  • Device: Nook HD (900 x 1440:hdpi)
  • Target: Android 4.0.3 - API Level 15
  • CPU/ABI: ARM (armeabi-v7a)
  • Keyboard: Hardware keyboard present: checked
  • Skin: No skin
  • Front Camera: None
  • Back Camera: None
  • Memory Option: RAM: 1024 VM Heap: 32
  • Internal Storage: 128 MiB
  • SD Card: Size: 128 MiB
  • Snapshot: unchecked
  • Use Host GPU: checked

Seems that the "Use Host GPU" being disabled is what kept it from working. Maybe that has something to do with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M and the Intel HD Graphics 4000 in my Asus G46VW gaming laptop.

TakeControl 3.0

That is not normal. There shouldn't be that many files there. After moving whatever files you want to keep out of that folder, you should be able to delete the entire "TakeControl" directory and re-install TakeControl.

Noticed that the script is calling "sh" rather than BASH. So I made a minor change to call the right shell interpreter.

TakeControl: Change Log

Version 3.1

The previous version of TakeControl spawns multiple windows to change owner and permission of files. The new windows would take focus away from your primary task, meaning you can't do any work while TakeControl is changing permission on large number of files.

In this new version, we hid the new windows, therefore, you can continue to work while TakeControl processes the files in the background.
