I was finally able to come up with a solution leveraging some of the comments in issue 28601, plus additional trial and error. I posted the solution in issue 28601.
Here it is: Create or edit an AVD in the SDK Manager with these settings:
Target: API Level 15 CPU: Intel Atom x86 Resolution: custom 1280 x 800 Hardware: * Hardware Back/Home key: no * Abstracted LCD Density: 160 **note: 320 makes phone layout, 160 tablet * Keyboard lid support: no * Max VM application heap: 48 * Device ram size: 512 * GPU emulation: yes
And it works quite well. There are a few graphic glitches and artifacts, but it runs smooth as butter on my machine. Most importantly, it doesn't crash when I enable GPU emulation and Intel x86 CPU! Never again will I rue the tablet testing cycle. (Unless the next SDK tools update breaks it again.)
Thank you. I've just spent the best part of today trying to get this to work reliably and this did the trick.ReplyDelete
