Hello Eunice, thank you for the tutorial!

I’m using Android Studio v1.5.1, if I’m correct the oldest Api that I can use in the AVD is 8 (Froyo, Android 2.2). API level 7 and older are deprecated. There’s a download function, but when I click it. the download seems to work, but API 7 does not appear in the list when creating a new AVD. Also, the download button disappeared from the list as soon as I clicked it. Only API from 8 and up seems to work. Guess you wrote the tutorial with an older version of Android Studio, or am I missing something?

Hello @whasssaaahhh,

I tested with Android Studio 1.5.1 and API 7 shows when creating a new AVD. From your screenshot API 7 is not downloaded. It’s possible the download did not complete successfully. Can you please try downloading it again?

Thanks Eunice, I tried this again, and my problem is solved. you were right that the image was not downloaded
