Android Studio Emulator takes forever

+1 Adonis Baba · March 6, 2015
Hi, i'm very very sorry if i didn't write this in the right section or topic or whatever but i'm pretty desperate to find an answer.

I followed Bucky's tutorials (Android App Development for Beginners) and he said it will take some time for the emulator to start at first so I waited for more than an hour (maybe even more than 2) and it didn't show anything else rather than the white android on black background. I tried to create another one (because the tutorials said so) and waited again for more than an hour (still waiting) but it just won't "turn on the phone".

Any suggestions?

I got it but when I try to open it it says that VirtualBox failed to install properly or something like that.

Get an i3 minimum for the CPU,  at least 4GB Ram, install HAXM and try again. Honestly, I would just use a real android phone b/c using emulated devices may not always be accurate and it is much easier to use.
