On the Common emulator options session:Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 12.21.36

The -verbose is more for you to have full logs when running it. I was having some problems with timeout, jenkins was able to start the emulator, but was waiting to be ready forever until I got timeout again.

So,  I had to remove the boot animation, clean the data and remove the audio and everything was fine as you can see.

Thank you guys !

  1. Hey Rafaela,
    The instructions are great but seems like Emulator plugin has evolved and there are few challenges which I believe not to exist in 2017. I’d really appreciate if you could update this document with latest plugin setup.

    1. Hello Huzaif, thanks for the update. I am just going to add it to my pipeline. If you managed to run the emulator on your Jenkins before it, just share with me and I can update the post with credits to you 🙂
