Anyone can tell me why the compiling failed?

Answer

Same problem here. I tried setting JACK_SERVER_VM_ARGUMENTS to include -Xmx=4g, but when building again the log output showed that this was not included in the startup. Dunno why, seems like the env vars do not get passed to the build script correctly.

Solution: before starting a clean android build set the JACK_SERVER_VM_ARGUMENTS to include -Xmx=4g, then stop and stat the jack server manually. Given you're in the main source tree of AOSP run the following:

export JACK_SERVER_VM_ARGUMENTS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -XX:+TieredCompilation -Xmx4g"
./prebuilts/sdk/tools/jack-admin kill-server
./prebuilts/sdk/tools/jack-admin start-server

This resolved the issue for me. GL!
